To all: I visited New Orleans from May 19, 2015 thru May 22, 2015, and I stayed at The Hotel Modern. I HAD A SPECTACULAR TIME. Beginning with the staff at Hotel Modern. Never met a group so friendly and helpful in my life. The concierge named Carl was really helpful suggesting places to go and restaurants to eat. Nikki... More

we stayed at hotel modern for a period of 5 nights in march 2015. we found the staff were extremely friendly and very helpful. The position of the hotel was far enough out of town not to hear the noise from the city, but close enough that you can walk to town. the amazing tramway system stops practically at your... More

I stayed here recently. I found that it was a comfortable place to stay, but somewhat barebones. They offer a variety of different size rooms. There is a reception desk, but nearly always no one is there. At times I stood there for 2-3 minutes before someone came to the front desk. There did not seem to be a hierarchy... More

We visited at end of April for Jazz Fest. We were attracted to the reasonable price and the great proximity to a trolley stop and the walkability to Canal Street. After our visit, we have dubbed the hotel "Hotel Frugal," and will probably not stay there again. The lobby seems very nice, but you will soon notice as you enter... More

We stayed 2 nights at the Hotel Modern and it was a highlight of our week in New Orleans. The staff are very friendly and helpful overall, and the room was just wonderful. The decor and vibe is contemporary and artsy chic. There is a Hotel bar on the property called BELLOCQ which is beyond wonderful--very dark and atmospheric plush... More

Staying at this hotel was one of the worst experiences I've ever had. Nice lobby, crappy rooms and horrible customer serivce. Billing nighmare, still trying to fix my bill over a week later. Their managers seem to be just as incompetent as their staff which includes housekeeping. There was a nice blonde woman who was helpful. No conceirge, no towels,... More

Really enjoyed just about everything about the Hotel Modern. Loved the staff. Floyd and Carl are on it. Didn't catch the names of the front desk ladies, but they were lovely. Ambrose in the bar is an amazing mixologist and had great restaurant tips. Speaking of which, the restaurant here is unreal. Try the corn dogs and go from there.

The hotel is in a great location and a close walk to the convention center and local restaurants. The nearby trolley is great when you want to go down to the quarter. When you walk it it certainly makes an impression. The rooms are not much of an impression, they feel like a dorm room with cheap paint, cheap carpet... More

I selected this hotel based off the pretty pictures I saw on the website.....it definitely is NOT what is presented online! The ONLY reason I made the best out of the situation was because my best friend & I were celebrating our birthdays. We stayed 5/7-5/10....there was only ONE woman that was at the front desk that was extremely pleasant... More
