The Modern Hotel & Bar

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.

Boise Guest House

The place you stay should be more than a bed and a bathroom; it should be an experience on the inside and a launch pad on the outside. That’s exactly what the one-of-a-kind Boise Guest House provides lodgers, especially the free spirit who’s looking to keep costs minimal while still enjoying every second of your adventure. The suites are tastefully decorated with local art and offer a cozy, home-like feel with sinks and full kitchens. Bike rentals put all of downtown and the surrounding areas at your fingertips. Quaint and quirky decor and even a spot for your pet (in select suites) make the Boise Guest House welcoming.
