Hotel Modern gets a 5 in my book because of the good value (nice rooms at a very reasonable price) and great location. It is a reasonable walk (0.5 miles) to the convention center and the St. Charles street car line runs just outside the hotel so you can get to other parts of the city easily. It is also... More

Highly Recommeded once the music from downstairs stops playing earlier. And when the construction from across the street ends. The location was perfect. It was safe and yet not far from the French Quarter.

My husband and I checked out this morning after three nights at the Hotel Modern. Upon arrival, the concierge named Luis was super friendly and told us about the best spots for live music and food. He also recommended the WWII museum (just a block away), which is a place I hadn't planned on visiting until then. So staff -... More

We had a great experience at The Hotel Modern! It was in a great location and the all of the staff members were super friendly! We ate breakfast in the hotel one morning and it was delicious. We were very appreciative of everyone at the front desk, especially Carl who was always able to get us a cab quickly, was... More

I stayed at the Hotel Modern this past week and was pleasantly surprised with the hotel's rooms. We ate in the restaurant our first night and the food was amazing! It isn't cheap though, so be prepared to pay for the great food. I stayed in a regular room with a king-sized bed and the bed was very comfortable. The... More

Great location, convenient to streetcar, Warehouse and Business districts. Friendly efficient staff. The bed was very comfortable, and shower was among the best in New Orleans for water pressure. You might miss the hotel in daytime, as the building is gray, not the magenta of lights at night. And in in room clock radio would be nice.

Stayed here for the weekend with a girlfriend. Very pleased with the room: bed was comfortable, shower was great, and the small frig was an unexpected surprise. I had requested a quiet room and was provided with one. Nice experience, great staff.

We know that we are not in the French Quarter and sometimes that can be a little bit better, especially when you are looking for a nice quiet room. We are excited to hear you had a great time and look to see you again soon. More

Pretty good hotel for a pretty good price. While, it is not around the normal hotel hustle and bustle for New Orleans, it is within walking distance or a street car ride to most attractions. The hotel is clean, modern (hence the name), a good price, and has a bar or two located on the bottom floor. Both are top... More

I stayed here with my wife in March for the weekend of my friends wedding. Upon arrival (we were early) we were quickly greeted and told that our room wasn't ready. They kindly took our bags and gave us some maps to help explore the city. When we got to the room that evening It was small and oddly set... More

Prior to booking the Modern Hotel my wife and I read the reviews and the main reason we booked was they allowed dogs in the hotel. Upon our arrival we were warmly greeted by the hotel staff who made our check in quick and painless. As we drove there we opted for the valet service which was worth the price.... More
