Hotel 43

Bold design in downtown Boise
As a boutique hotel set along the 43rd parallel in the capital city of the nation’s 43rd state, Hotel 43 doesn’t just embrace its location — it fully embodies it.

From the property’s locally created décor to the staff’s enthusiasm for the city in which they live, a Hotel 43 experience seasoned by Boise’s unique attractions is unavoidable by design.

Being supporters of Boise's local arts scene, the friendly staff has arranged several programs that showcase the city, including its unique "arts passport" which includes free or discounted tickets to the Boise Art Museum and the city's ballet, philharmonic, opera and more when available.

If you're visiting Boise for the first time, you might be surprised by this boutique hotel's contemporary design and bold palette. There's no western kitsch here—instead you'll find rooms with streamlined decor punched up with doses of red and charcoal, and upscale touches like high thread count luxury linens and flat-screen TVs.

The onsite restaurant, Chandlers, is a local hotspot and includes a stylish martini bar where on most nights you can hear live jazz.
