First, the staff was friendly and helpful, we liked that. Secondly, the room was small and cramped, even though we were told it was a "large" room. We have stayed at the local Motel 6 with better rooms. Parking? Three blocks away in one of the scariest parking garages I have ever been in with an almost over powering smell... More

The room was clean, the hotel was unique and the staff was terrific. Carl and Lorenzo were courteous friendly and attentive. Each time we asked for anything we were accommodated promptly. We will stay there again if we are in New Orleans!

...The service was excellent! Though I've stayed here many times on my own, this was my second stay with my fiancée. The intimate setting and comfortable layout of rooms make for a romantic getaway. As for the staff, Justin was very prompt and thorough when checking us in. Another stand-out was Rodney who was gracious in allowing us late check... More

This is a boutique hotel in the heart of the CBD. It is short walking distance to the French Quarter and just blocks away from the WW2 and Ogden museums. The restaurant Tivoli and Lee inside the hotel has an amazing bartender and the food is delicious. The bellman Carl was particularly helpful. The room was appointed nicely with a... More

Room was very nice. Hotel Lobby is very nice. Staff is very professional and courteous. The hotel is located in a very convenient location. It is right around the corner from the World War II Museum, the Civil War Museum, and the Ogden Museum of Southern Art.

Great place for the price..be careful of all the parking fees. At one point the parking garage wasn't working and we had to pay to use the $10 for 10 hours lot and had to come back to refill the meter several times.

Our weekend stay at Hotel Modern was nice - cool style throughout and great bar in the lobby. Unfortunately, an iPad went missing from my suitcase under these circumstances: I arrived late Friday night and brought my bag into the room. We woke up late Saturday morning. We had slept through the morning sweep by housekeeping (We had the Do... More

The service was fantastic. The room is super clean and the decor is clean and chic. The location is only one block from The National WWII Museum. The hotel is right on the street car line. There is a large bird in the front who is awesome.

Fantastic southern hospitality. We (2 guess) stayed in a Spacious clean room with a king bed. Very polite staff. Pretty good location, the circle is beautiful and there is several museums in the area. All around great stay. Will definitely return soon :) Thanks for all the help Carl & Q!

We had a great time in the City. There was a city wide water issue, but Carl took the time to ensure that my daughter and I were ok. He was very polite and I would definitely recommend this hotel to others because of him. Thank you #hotelmodern #seeyounextyear
