The Hotel Modern is located on Lee circle, just south of the superdome, and next door to the civil war museum and the WWII museum. It is an older building that has been remodeled, so the rooms are small, but not unpleasantly so. Ours had a window which opened onto the brick wall of the building next door, so there... More

I must say the best thing about my stay at The Modern Hotel was Johnny [Bell] who was friendly, attentive and quick to be helpful. He epitomizes my idea of what a resident of New Orleans should be. When I arrived at around 1530 hours on August 24th I parked by what I thought was the entrance. It was locked.... More

I stayed here whilst on business in New Orleans in May of this year. Firstly, kudos to the city: it's recovered brilliantly from Katrina, and is back to it's culturally thriving bustling best. This hotel is boutique in every sense of the word: if your typical chain hotel is a suburban superstore then this is that fashionable little boutique right... More

Staff- wonderful! Very pleasant, provided a city map, offered suggestions on local restaurants, and overall warm. Helped me get around town as well. Room-a bit small, but since it was just me, it worked just fine. Great products from CO Bigalow too. Location- excellent! Within walking and public transportation distance from Bourbon Street, Canal Street, Jackson Square, and many attractions.... More

I stayed here for 2 nights and was greeted beautifully every time i entered and exited the building by Carl! He helped me with my bags, was very welcoming and approachable. Nothing was too difficult or out of his way. Thanks Carl! Hotel Modern is a beautifully clean, comfortable and modern hotel. Very homely atmosphere. Would absolutely stay again!

An absolutely delightful hotel...The food in the hotel was rather pricey. Thus, explore the surrounding restaurants for a cheaper meal. I highly recommend "City Diner".The location of the hotel is really perfect; not too far from downtown or any major attractions.

I needed a room at the last minute in New Orleans and saw that The Hotel Modern was available for $99. I wanted to be near the French Quarter so I booked it. I checked in around 8:30pm. The front desk and bellman were very nice and helpful. Checking in was fast and easy. I asked for dinner recommendations and... More
