Stayed at Hotel Modern for a week. The lobby is nicely decorated nice and the staff was friendly checking me in. When giving me my room keys, he said I have the best view in the hotel. When I got to my room, I realized perhaps he was being sarcastic. The only window in the room was a small window... More

A great little hotel with a great location for the WWII Museum. A quiet part of town with easy access to everything else by trolly or cab. The hotel's food and bar was exceptional. Service was great, prices were within local standards. Personnel are helpful and friendly, I will stay there again.

Hotel Modern is great for travel to New Orleans. The rooms are small but work well for guests not looking to lounge in there during their stay. Convenient to the Superdome, which is why we were there. I would recommend this to anyone.

A small group of longtime friends and myself really enjoyed our NOLA reunion staying at The Modern. The location is great.. although not right in the center of all the action, it is far enough away to be quiet and peaceful, and close enough to get to any New Orleans activity quickly.(Bourban St is fun but unless you are under...

I needed something convenient to the Amtrak station downtown for a quick overnight. The Hotel Modern is lovely, its staff is warmly accommodating, the restaurant and bar are very fine-looking (I arrived too late to enjoy them). A live parrot greets guests during daytime hours by the roughly refinished old front desk. Especially nice is their making small rooms available... More

My wife and I went here for our 1st anniversary and couldn't have chose a better place for the value we got! We stayed 3 nights from Friday through Sunday and left on a Monday. I booked the trip directly from the Hotel's website and it required that the entire amount for the stay be paid upfront. This may be... More

Great place to stay in New Orleans. You'll feel like family, and you'll enjoy the modern, artistic feel of the hotel. The Bloody Mary bar is a must as well! They go the extra mile to make your stay memorable and comfortable. Location is great. Puts you in walking distance of many attractions in the city. Overall a great place,... More

We arrived at The Hotel Modern on a Wednesday and were meeting up with friends for the weekend. The staff, for the most part, were nice and friendly. You may be hard pressed to find anyone standing at the front desk after 10:00pm, it wouldn't be apparent where to go either. This was frustrating a couple of times as we... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Hotel Modern New Orleans welcomes you. Upon arrival, you will be greeted with complimentary drinks in our lobby and escorted to your room just as if you were staying at a close friend’s guesthouse – there is no front desk or lengthy check in process. Our 135 comfortable rooms were designed in-house with a modern eclectic aesthetic that mirrors New Orleans’ juxtaposition of Old World charm with New World diversity. Each of our rooms feature a spacious layout to meet the needs of our busy and well-traveled guests, hand-picked modern yet comfortable furniture, and a selection from our private antique collection. The Hotel Modern goes beyond the basics to offer an array of cultural amenities, such as thoughtfully curated books in every room, a live music series with international artists in our cocktail lounge, Bellocq, and our full service restaurant, Tivoli & Lee, Chef Marcus Woodham's Southern Bistro featuring a farm-to-plate menu. The Lounge takes its name from photographer E.J. Bellocq, who secretly photographed the madams of pre-prohibition New Orleans. It features a menu of original cocktail creations from Neal Bodenheimer, Kirk Estopinal and Matthew Kohnke, the founders of Cure, the new Orleans bar named one of "The Best Bars in America" by Esquire Magazine. ... more   less
