1. Very good value and decent location 2. Well-appointed and clean room, good counter space and good products in bathroom 3. Quiet and peaceful stay except for housekeeping knocking an all doors before 8:30 in the morning---they should know if people have left, and they should certainly not be knocking at that time

This is my second visit to The Hotel Modern and I will continue to stay here for my New Orleans trips. My girlfriend and I were greeted by Danielle at the front desk with some amazing complimentary specialty cocktails and assigned to an awesome junior King suite. The trolley cars circle at the round-about RIGHT in front of the hotel.... More

My mom, sister, and I stayed at The Hotel Modern for 3 nights in August of 2014 for a girls weekend in the city. Once again, we enjoyed our stay from start to finish! The valet was prompt and friendly, the room was clean with a great view of Lee Circle, and we had delicious meals at Tivoli & Lee... More

This is my first ever negative review, but I need to say it as it was! We stayed at the Hotel Modern for 3 nights in August 2014 as part of a package booked by our travel agent in the UK. Before we left the UK we specifically checked that there would be two beds in our hotel rooms, as... More

I stayed one night (August 16-17) and it was like royalty. I mean really. The way they (the staff) go out their way to help is uncommon! It was the one of my best stays in New Orleans, thanks to them. And I have been there a lot. They were overly accommodating with me and with my dog, which is... More

I booked the Hotel Modern through groupon and I stayed for there for 3 nights. It was the best 3 nights ever. I already miss Scarett a super cute and talkative parrot who is the mascot of the hotel.

I stayed at The Hotel Modern this past weekend August 21 to 24 2014 and it was the best experience at any hotel that we've stayed at. The hotel is situated in between the crazy and loud French Quarter and the elegant Garden District at Lee circle As soon as I walked into the hotel I was greeted graciously and... More

The Hotel Modern has a great location, waling distance to some great spots, although late at night you have to watch yourself as the area can be a bit deserted. I liked the vibe of the hotel and especially the lobby decor and the great bar, Bellocq. My room was small (very small, even though advertised as a medium room)... More

My stay at The Hotel Modern was totally satisfying. I had a single room that was quaint but eclectic. The light mint paint was easy on the eyes but exciting. It was roomy enough without the waste of space. The choice of are was delightful and a bit entertaining. The service was attentive but not bothersome. Kyle, Don, and Jason... 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
