Modern B & B
Forget the flea market antique furniture and creepy feeling that guests in the next room can hear every word you’re saying (or sound you’re making). Modern B&B is a hip, four-story townhouse complex with eight guest quarters that offer the intimacy of staying in your own private quarters with a decidedly contemporary look that includes the architecture, furnishings and art. Among the pluses are an iPod docking station, Wi-Fi, in-room masseuse visits, private entrances and a location that puts you within close range of downtown, the Galleria, Hermann Park and the Museum District. There’s also a single townhouse next door and two sleek apartments around the corner if you want an entire place to yourself. If you decide to take advantage of the hearty organic breakfasts, you’ll be joined by others who, like you, want a cool alternative to staying at a hotel but shudder at the thought of toile, doilies and guests who want to ambush you in the front parlor with pictures of their grandchildren and elderly pet cats.
Java hounds will love the Expobar espresso machine and Mazzer grinder in the dining room.
