Hotel 43 is smart and lively, boutiquey in the best sense, and perfect for business. Chandlers Steakhouse is private enough to entertain clients, but if you want to let it all go at the end of the day, it's just plain fun.
The rooms are decorated with just enough mod spin to give you that little lift when you walk in. Beds are ultra-comfortable, and the top floor suite has twelve foot ceilings. Some rooms have views of the Capitol Dome, or of the Boise foothills.
Comfortable, arty, and good for business
Ask for the Hotel 43 Arts Passport. You'll get free admission to the Boise Art Museum, and discounts on tickets to arts events like Ballet Idaho, the Idaho Shakespeare Festival, and the Gene Harris Jazz Festival.
Chandlers Steakhouse is as swanky as the food is delicious. The booths are black leather with white linen cloths, and there's live jazz 7 nights a week. The bar is backlit with blue light - and it's home to a famous ten-minute martini, winner of Boise's Martini Mix-Off. Steaks can be ordered seared at 1,800 degrees, and still pink on the inside.
Metro Cafe is open for breakfast. There's oatmeal with organic bananas, really good coffee, and more.
