1 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Online, The Hotel Modern seemed really cool, but it was not what was described. We paid over $200 for a room that was so small, only one person could maneuver around the bed at a time. When we asked about it later, wondering if we got the wrong room, they told us that it was correct. The carpets in the... More

3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I stayed here for four nights in May. Not too far from Bourbon street, right next to World War 2 Museum and very easy to catch a cable car out the front of the hotel. The bed was not very comfortable as the mattress was quite thin, rooms were quite small and it was a little bit noisy. However, it... More

The rooms were small..beds uncomfortable. The air conditioning barely worked. The parking was $10 per day for self park (but the lots was 2 blocks away.) We paid the charge of $30 per day for valet but whenever we needed our vehicle, there were times we still had to walk the blocks to get it our self.

This was the closest Hotel we could get at that time to the French Quarters - it was Memorial Day weekend. However, this was a blessing in disguise. The hotel was clean, bed was comfortable, and staff were great. It was about a 15 minutes walk from the French Quarters and we felt very safe walking to and from the... More

This is really a decent hotel and decent prices. In a pretty good area of town. the parking is around back that you have to pay for . This must be every hotel's MO to pay for parking. it's lighted parking area and close to the hotel so its ok. Rooms are kind of small. I think I paid $90... More

I rented a block of rooms at the Hotel Modern for my wedding. That process went smoothly. When it came to checking in my husband was told that they didn't have his reservation, which got sorted out but was still stressful. Two nights in a row (including our wedding night) our room key didn't work and we had to go... More

Absolutely loved the hotel. Everything was clean and comfortable in our room and throughout the hotel. Perfect location right along the street-car line, easy to get to Bourbon Street and the Garden District. The staff were incredibly helpful and knowledgeable-gave us multiple recommendations and tips. We brought our dog and the hotel was very pet friendly with a lovely park... 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
