Pros: Pet friendly. I think it's a separate building from the main hotel, but we got zero complaints even after leaving her kenneled in the room for a bit. Clean room. Definitely a no-fuss room with the basics but nevertheless, clean. Accommodating staff. We arrived in town earlier than expected and they let us do an early check in. Location.... More

I asked friends and colleagues for a hotel recommendation in New Orleans - near central business district but not in district. I also asked for B&B suggestions. I went with Hotel Modern - which was described as funky but nice with the sweetest parrot in the lobby. I arrived at Hotel Modern and the staff was so helpful and welcoming!... More

I'm currently staying at The Modern Hotel, New Orleans. I arrived at 10am to check in however, my problems started prior to check in. I called on the night June 22 and spoke with a young lady, during our talk I stressed the importance of double beds. I made this call because I commonly book through Priceline and that is... More

We're not really hotel people, but we won two nights at a charity auction. If you want a sleek, small, "modern" hotel, this is a good choice. They have done a great job with the lobby, restaurant and bar. The service is excellent and authentic; you deal with real people who don't have to stick to a corporate script, so... More

My stay at Hotel Modern was great, we had great service from Damion the front desk manager. He accomodated our requests promptly. It was my first time ever to NOLA and I'd heard great things about it. I have great memories and came home and told my family (which had never been to NOLA) they had to go and experience... More

We booked this hotel to be near the WWII Museum. It could not have been more convenient. We could easily have walked there. If you go for that reason, park in the lot immediately behind the hotel and walk to the museum. Had we done that, we would have saved the $8 parking fee at the lot beside the museum.... More

Appreciated the unique decor, the simplicity of the rooms, wonderful lavender-peppermint toiletries and enjoyed the small library in the room-good reading pics, complete with fridge and docking station. My husband and I were having an impromptu rendezvous while on a long drive. Hotel stay was quiet and relaxing. Would definitely stay again. The staff were very friendly and accommodating.

Decent value, self parking cheaper than most, but not that convenient to get in and out.Room had very little toilet paper when we arrived, and had to ask twice to get more. Stayed for 3 days, and the coffee, sweetener and cream never replaced. Asked front desk twice, but it never arrived for through rest of our stay. Turn down... More

I am very familiar with New Orleans, and currently live in Baton Rouge. My boyfriend and I booked the room for a small getaway. I enjoyed all aspects of our stay. Everyone was extremely friendly and professional. Our room was clean, quiet, and comfortable. Lee Circle is a small hike from the French Quarter (20-30min walk), but it's worth it... 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
