Whether you are visiting Boise, have guests in town, or just need a staycation, Boise has several unique lodging options to choose from! Want a beer garden just steps from your bed? You got it. Looking for a home away from home? That can be found in Boise too! Check out this compilation of a few of our favorite places to rest and relax.

Hotel 43

“Located on the 43rd Parallel in the 43rd State,” Hotel 43 is a charming boutique hotel nestled in downtown Boise. With amenities such as free admission to the Boise Art Museum, room service from Chandlers Steakhouse, and plush robes, a stay at Hotel 43 will not soon be forgotten.

But perhaps the best amenity is Hotel 43’s PURE® Wellness Rooms. With an in-room air filter and a stringent 7-step cleaning process, guests can sleep easy in the allergy friendly bedding.

The Modern

Take a step back in time at The Modern. This reinvented Travelodge Motel is now a funky, sleek hotel with amenities such as a complimentary continental breakfast, free bicycle use for guests, and easy access to The Modern’s bar and restaurant (currently closed due to COVID-19). In fact, even if you do not book a room at The Modern, make time to swing by for a drink or at the hotel’s sibling restaurant, Txikiteo.

Franklin House Bed and Beer

Boise is well known for its gorgeous historic homes. Why not stay in one? The Franklin House Bed and Beer not only provides guests with comfortable lodging, but a quirky beer garden. The backyard beer garden is open to the public Wednesday through Sunday from 5 pm to 10 pm, but guests can enjoy the relaxing spot anytime. The house has six bedrooms to reserve, while the beer garden backyard offers 14 hammock swings, two fire pits, and food trucks (on certain days).

Boise Guest House

Stay at the Boise Guest House if you want the comfort of home within steps of all that downtown Boise has to offer. The Idaho State Capitol is blocks away from this enchanting pet-friendly guest house! Each suite has a kitchen, private bathroom, and sitting area. Bring the whole family and stay in the spacious two-bedroom Travel Suite or Attic Suite. Or, get away with that special someone in one of the other one-bedroom suite options. While some suites are pet-friendly, others are allergy-friendly and do not allow four-legged friends.

The Riverside Hotel

Guests who want to easily access the Boise River and Greenbelt should consider booking a room at the Riverside Hotel. Take a dip in the heated outdoor pool or grab a drink at the Sandbar Patio and Grill that sits right alongside the river. Live music lovers will appreciate the various musicians that perform at the Riverside, especially in the glamorous Sapphire Room and nightly at the Sandbar’s outdoor patio from mid May through October.

The Inn at 500 Capitol

Immerse yourself in art at The Inn at 500 Capitol. Every suite and premier king room at the Inn features one-of-a-kind art installation above the luxurious bed. The dedicated reader will be delighted with the well-stocked built-in bookshelves found in some of the rooms offered, while the butler’s pantry provides ample space to store delicious bites or have room service delivered from Richard’s Restaurant.
