We stayed for a meeting at the convention center and it was an easy walk. It's a little far from the French Quarter, but the cable cars run by every 20 minutes so it was simple just to hop on one. The room was very clean, albeit the bathroom was quite small. Best part was how quiet the hotel is.... More

Excellent stay I came into town with my two girlfriends to enjoy the French Quarter Festival & we did just that! When we arrived we were greeted promptly, professionally, and treated with respect. I REALLY liked that the chilled fruit water was a plus. Once I got into my room I was overwhelmed the view everything was just perfect. I... More

We stayed at the Hotel Modern for a little under a week, and had a truly lovely time. The hotel is situated in a lovely area, with a ton of museums extremely close by, and is a scenic 15 minute walk away from the heart of the city. The in room amenities were fine. Our room wasn't gigantic, but it... More

We have stayed at several of the 4-5 star hotels in New Orleans, but the service here has them beat. The rooms are small as many of the other reviews indicate, but there was all the amenities we needed and the location is great. We walked to and from the convention center and the French Quarter several times and both... More

The Hotel Modern is great, but it could be so amazing if only it didn't fall short on some important points. I wanted to give The Hotel Modern an "excellent" rating, but couldn't do so in good conscience due to a few issues we experienced during our 1-night stay. Terrific front office staff, great atmosphere, a cool, eclectic decor mix... More

My husband and I stayed at The Hotel Modern for the first weekend of Mardi Gras 2014. We were there with a group of friends (all stayed at this hotel). We bought a groupon in Sept of 2013 for the hotel so we got a good deal. The location was a bit far from bourbon st. not to bad getting... More

This hotel was amazing! Able to accommodate us just after debarking from a cruise. The rooms were clean and cute, making use of all the cubby holes that come with an older building. The bed was soft and inviting! Close to everything, with little street noise. Wonderful toiletries provided (it's been a long time since I've been able to say... More

Stayed here for a few nights at the end of March - initially very impressed. The lobby is nice looking, there's a resident parrot, and the staff are friendly, knowledgable, helpful & talkative. Off to a good start. Our room was extremely small. My mom and I were sharing, and overall we aren't too fussy, but for an extended stay... More

The staff of this hotel was fantastic! James was the valet/porter and he went beyond my expectations. Kyle was friendly and quite helpful. Verita checked me in and was most accommodating. I loved Rick (Bell hop) He had the best personality and was quite helpful with shopping in the area. (He works well with Nicole, so keep scheduling them as... More

Spent 2 nights at this quaint hotel 15 mins walk from canal street but a little distance from the French Quarter itself. Very quiet location. The hotel rooms while basic are very functional with very comfortable beds. Rooms have coffee maker and small fridge with flat screen tv. Had a view of the circle which was nice.The staff were polite... More
