  • Treefort 2014

    January 17th, 2014 by webAdmin

    Again this year we are blessed with the Treefort Music Festival. Great bands migrate north from the warmth of Austin, Texas and will breeze into town to warm up our city March 20-24.
    If you didn’t go last year, I’ll offer some words of wisdom–or what I’m proclaiming to be wisdom. Go to Treefort, indulge yourself. Attending Treefort is like being the first one down the mountain after a fresh snowfall. It’s like being the first water skier on a glassy lake, carving beautiful rooster tails. It is primo. The indie music festival South by Southwest is an aging monster, now in its twenty seventh year. Boise’s own Treefort is your chance to catch a festival in its youth. My advice: be at Treefort when it’s young, instead of looking back and wishing you were there at the beginning. The Modern Hotel still has a few rooms in the belly of the beast, the heart of the action, the hub, baby! Call the Modern Hotel for details.

  • letter from room 235

    July 19th, 2012 by webAdmin

    hi there,

    i am writing from room 235 where i just returned after a very lovely dinner and concert on the patio. i am just so in love with everything about your fine hotel that i HAD to write, right now, and tell you all.
    when we told friends we were traveling to boise to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary they laughed at us…literally. we wanted a get away that required a plane ride, wasn’t too far, was affordable, offered a city feel with good restaurants and some live music, and was hot. we also wanted hip accomodations. with college tuition payments for our kids we were working with a budget. and i wanted to be someplace where i knew literally  no one. still…they all laughed.
    when we looked online for accomodations we fell in love with you all via your website, replete with staff bios, history, and menus. the fact that you included a bio for your housekeeping manager/staff endeared me to you immensely!! i, in particular, couldn’t wait to arrive. i love midcentury modern design and also am committed to supporting local small businesses when i have the choice. we booked late so only had a choice of a small room which my husband tried several times to upgrade but you guys are just so popular no one ever cancelled.
    i cannot tell you how thrilled we are with exactly where we are. we keep trying to want to go try other restaurants but can’t seem to leave. everything we eat here, from the fresh squeezed orange juice this morning, to the afternoon nut snack, to our dinners is amazing and feels as though it is prepared with utmost care and attention to detail. it was especially wonderful to have the days’ specials described to us by the chef…in our room!! michal and polly have provided great help and recommendations, and our server at dinner tonight (cowboy boots, pony tails, and round glasses…so bummed not to have gotten her name) was spectacular. our room couldn’t be more comfortable and so fun to be right over the patio.
    our son is working retail this summer and it’s reminding us how difficult it can be, at times, to work in service and customer focused industries. i’m sure that’s true at times for you all. given that, i didn’t want to wait to thank you so much for providing us with a really fun and relaxing together time. these are rare for us and your fine hotel will forever be associated with wonderful, fun, happy, and warm (literally and figuratively) memories for us!
    thank you, thank you, thank you! a million times…thank you!!

  • The Modern Hotel’s Stay and Play Ski Package

    January 30th, 2012 by webAdmin

    Dang gina, this year stresses me out. I’m ambivalent about snow and cold. But this just isn’t right. NO SNOW. And it didn’t come until well after Elvis’s birthday on the 8 of January. I hate it. It makes me sad and anxious. It dominates my conversations. “I really wish it would snow” I’d say to a guest, and they’d say, “Do you usually get a lot of snow in Boise?” I blather back about how we get a little snow in the Treasure Valley, but it usually goes away fast and stays in the mountains. Others would pop into the conversation and digress into a “I remember back in 82” kind of competition.

    But now the snow is here. Yeah! Snow, snow, snow! The lifts are running and I’m in the mood to eat chef Davids’ wonderful soup and rejoice! Then follow it up with delicious warming beverage in the Modern Bar.

    Now finally our guests can enjoy the Stay and Play package to their heart’s content. And what’s more we’ll make the deal sweeter!

    If you participate in the Stay and Play promotion your rate for a queen room is $80 and $90 for a king or a room with 2 queen beds. All rooms are based on double occupancy and subject to availability.

    Here’s the scpop on the ski package:

    Buy one Alpine lift ticket or Nordic trail pass and get another one FREE! 

    • Second ticket must be of equal or lesser value.
    • No blackout periods.
    • One lift ticket voucher per guest, per night of stay in Boise.
    • Lift tickets valid during time of stay only.
    • Mention the “Stay and Play” offer when placing reservation.
    • Split-day offer:  Single guest purchases a ticket on 1st day, get FREE ticket on 2nd day (within “dates of stay” stamped/marked on the voucher)

    Here is swishing to see you soon.
