The Modern Hotel

It's hard to imagine a more beloved Boise hotel—hell, a more beloved Boise landmark. Since it opened in a revamped Linen District Travelodge in 2007 it has been an integral part of the fabric of downtown Boise. The hotel put on the popular one-day Modern Art showcase from 2008 until retiring the event in 2016, regularly hosts public readings by regional literary figures and its bar has been one of the hottest spots on the map since it opened its doors. Stop in for a drink or stay and the night you'll leave a bona fide modernist. themodernhotel.com

2nd Place: Hotel 43—Combining class and elegance with a hip downtown vibe, Hotel 43 is the kind of place where you can settle in to feel pampered or energized to hit the urban nightlife. The spacious rooms are appointed with an upscale flair, boasting great views of downtown. Equipped with a business center and meeting space, it's a place to get things done, but if you're looking to play you're in luck: award-winning Chandler's Steakhouse and Seafood is located on the ground floor. You'll never want to go home. hotel43.com

3rd Place: Grove Hotel—It's hard to miss the Grove Hotel, its facade being one of the defining features of the Boise skyline. With a four diamond rating from AAA (the only hotel in Boise to earn the honor), the Grove features a 14,000-square foot health club, full spa services, top-notch artisan fare from Emilio's Fine Dining and a location that can't be beat. grovehotelboise.com
