The Modern Hotel & Bar

1314 W Grove St, Boise, ID 83702
(208) 424-8244 | Website

Too often history disappears as buildings receive facelifts and stories are forgotten. The Modern Hotel & Bar in the heart of Boise’s vibrant Linen District is one of the keepers of local history, and they do an exquisite job of it. This stylish, cozy hotel began as the vision of sheepherders during the Great Depression, who brought local architects and designers together to build something beautiful.

Today, The Modern still radiates warmth and the story of Boise, with its mid-century decor and updated vintage aesthetic. We couldn’t say it better than they have: “It’s a home-away-from-home for all the weekenders, explorers, risk-takers and dreamers who value stylish design, the best entertainment, a sociable atmosphere, and ridiculously comfortable beds.” The bar downstairs is also a local hot spot for craft cocktails and inspired fare.
