“Good breakfast, comfortable room, fat cat.”
“And there was always great conversation and good wine.”
“Go shopping, see some local art and then come to your "home" and cook a fine meal with interesting people passing randomly through your dinner party.”
“Lisa is friendly and so accommodating.”
This dramatic four-story bed and breakfast is a unique alternative with fab rooms, artists' works on walls, exercise equipment and shaded verandas that present panoramic views above the tree line. Come stay with us and experience a different kind of bed & breakfast! We also offer an intimate setting in the heart of Houston that is perfect for hosting meetings, dinner parties or wedding receptions! We love to prepare tasty organic food. Health is a part of the modern aesthetic as much as art, architecture and good company. Located at 4003 Hazard St, Houston, TX, between downtown and the galleria, 6 blocks from the Menil Museum and Rothko Chapel; and 16 blocks from Rice and St Thomas. …
unique and fabulous. Modern B and B is a really special place - I have never stayed in any b&b like it before. It has a very homey yet contemporary feel - very bright and sunny. Lisa is friendly and so accommodating. Breakfast is served at a large table with the other guests (coming and going). It kind of seems like a family. The food was excellent - including wonderful granola! And I have to add - the bed was ever so comfortable.
Fine place to stay.
I had a fine time at Modern B&B. Good breakfast, comfortable room, fat cat.

Modern B&B. I travel constantly on my job and long ago gave up staying in chain hotels out of sheer boredom; byou never know what you're going to get in a B&B. Modern B&B was, hands down, the best B&B I've ever stayed at in terms of comfort, amenities and the sheer joy of Lisa's (and friends!) company. I never feel as if I'm staying at a commercial establishment -- I feel right at home. There are always interesting people around and Lisa plays "salon hostess" to great effect. Food: great. Accommodations: Better than great. Company: superb. Flexibility/being accommodating: terrific. The only downside to my writing this review is that I'm afraid so many people will books rooms there might not be any availability the next time I need it!
excellent alternative to hotels.
I recommend this place to everyone I meet. I travel to Houston 1 or 2 times a year and usually would stay in a hotel, however after discovering Lisa's place I will never use a hotel again!
This is a wonderful alternative to a hotel for a business traveler. Everything you need is provided, and everything you would want as well. The amenities and comfort level is beyond expectation, and you are made to feel right at home. Lisa is a wonderful hostess, and will make your stay comfortable. The home and grounds are beautiful and the area is very convenient and safe. You can easily access the downtown area within a few minutes, as well as the Galleria.
I recommend the hotel to anyone looking to get away, or that is forced to get away on business. It is a nice respite from the norm of travel.
Best Place to Stay in Houston. My husband and I live in the Friendswood area and have 2 young children, needless to say we don't get out much, and when we do we don't like to go too far. The Modern B&B was absolutly wonderful! We had a relaxing evening, got to sleep in and had the most amazing breakfast. The price was great compaired to other hotels in the area, not to mention SOOOOO much better. When we were making our reservatons the Modern was very accomodating. We will definitly stay at the Modern again and highly recommended you give it a try too!
Best place to stay in Houston Texas. My parents live here, about 2 miles from the Modern with a full guest apartment available to me. Nevertheless, I stay there for the experience. I first encountered the place (and the lovely Lisa) when meeting a friend for breakfast who was staying while down from New York. The breakfast is great... cozy with all of the other guests but somehow still edgy. They have a chef come in and make you whatever you want. The fruit smoothie with tofu blended in was awesome. We stayed in the treehouse room on the top floor and really, that's the full experience. The room is twice as big as my house in Austin. Full cityscape views, excellent tub with bubblers, too cool... the private circular staircase is not bad either. There's even a separate kitchen facility if you like to cook, which would be an awesome thing to do. Go shopping, see some local art and then come to your "home" and cook a fine meal with interesting people passing randomly through your dinner party. Just an idea. The Modern B&B is where its at in Houston, and definitely a cooler way to spend a coule hundred bucks than the Marriott.
The Modern is the best.. The Modern is the best B&B we've ever stayed in, and we've stayed in B&Bs around the country. The rooms are extraordinary and the breakfasts amazing, and the proprietor qualifies as the nicest human being on the planet (as well as the most remarkable person we've ever met). She's the best. We'll always go back to the Modern.
Only at the Modern B&B.
I fell in Love with Lisa and this great Bed and Breakfast. I was fortunate to stay there after Katrina. Our company stayed there for a few months after Katrina. I feel like family. It is one of my favorite memories. Lisa was the greatest hostess. She gave us run of the kitchen. I got to make coffee in the mornings. But she made breakfast. We made dinner at night. Each of us took a turn with the cooking. And there was always great conversation and good wine. We had parties at Christmas and New Years. She took us out to meet her friends.
The location is so centrally located. It was very easy to get around town from there.
The beds are the best. I actually came home and bought one like the ones at the B&B. I called Lisa from the Sleep Shop to get the name off the mattress.
I could go on and on. But you really need to visit to experience Lisa's hospitality first hand.
Love you Lisa.
