Escape from the traditional. An award winning architect designed this amazing B&B. Eighteen rooms, great amenities such as an expobar espresso machine, guest kitchen, and self-serve laundry as well as the industry standards: wireless internet and cable TV. Our top-shelf rooms have their own private floors with whirlpools for 2 and large balconies. The Cayman/Chickadee is our two-room family suite with a shared bath; the Mod rooms are on the bottom floor with street-level entrances. We serve a full breakfast. Enjoy fresh smoothies, a fresh-baked good, local eggs, 10 grain waffles, etc. We love to cook!! Close to Menil Museum, Rothko Chapel, Medical Center, Downtown and the Galleria.

Lisa was a most wonderful host and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location is superb, breakfast just perfect and the rooms we had were even better than described on the website. We visit Houston regularly, and this is absolutely perfect for our needs; we will always make Modern B & B our first choice!

After years of staying in hotels, we booked the entire space for multiple people in our group for a business meeting. It was absolutely perfect! The main areas were spacious. There were great places to hang out on patios. The staff were super helpful. Eateries within walking distance. We had people from all over the United States, and they all had a wonderful time. Thank you for the opportunity to stay at the Modern B&B.

Overall, the room was nice but I have 2 complaints. First, we could not get the TV to turn on. Second, we could see where there was Wi-Fi available but we didn't have the passcode. I called the number on our confirmation email but got voice mail and nobody ever returned my call.

The Modern is great quality quirky eclectic accommodation with brilliant personal service. Be sure that if you want to just check in & be left alone you an do that, but what's the fun? Julie & her team are a great bunch of interesting characters & did a stunning job of ensuring I felt much more like a house guest than a customer. They are knowledgeable about the local activities & attractions, including gems of pragmatic info you don't get in standard tourist offerings. The location is great being out of the madness of downtown & close to the excellent Museum District. Thoroughly recommended. Will definitely stay again.

I've stayed at several Houston B&B. Modern B&B was such a pleasant experience. Great location for museums and restaurants. Staff was so friendly and helpful. Unique communal breakfast table enabled me to meet and mix with interesting people over great food. Hosts went the extra mile to accommodate my requests. I'll be back. Debra B.

I stayed for 2 nights in the Cayman Room, which had a Jack and Jill bathroom connecting to a room my mother stayed in for one night. Other family members had rooms there as well and Lisa was so gracious, making sure we were all comfortable and had everything we needed. I will definitely stay again!
