He also took care of booking various tours and dinner reservation and it was all done very quickly and professionally. Great dinner recommendations and a lot of local, inside knowledge. Rooms are very clean and have all... More

Upon arrival I was happy with the hospitality and upkeep of this establishment. All employees were kind and informative. However during our stay I noticed a pair of my shoes were missing, and it is really disheartening to have to write this as I would never like to accuse anyone of doing such a horrible act but someone on that...

The Hotel was nice, room was a little small but functional, with a pretty comfortable bed. Rick the bellman was great guiding us to things... More

I had occasion to stay at this hotel in May when I was in New Orleans for a professional conference. I chose the Hotel Modern purely because it is within walking distance of the convention center; however, it proved to be a fortuitous choice. The decor of the lobby is both sleek and rustic--no mean feat--and the staff was at... More

We had a wonderful visit! Super friendly staff. Very clean room. Amazing bed! So fluffy and comfy I didn't want to get up! Breakfast was very good too. Keurigs in every room too for those coffee lovers like myself yummmmm. And pet friendly which was very important to us. We were able to keep our family together!

Nice hotel in a nice location. Check in was very easy and my room was ready and they let me check in early which was perfect. My room was clean and comfortable. I had a view of other buildings but that was really not a concern for me. I ate dinner at Tivoli & Lee and had an amazing waitress... 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
