I just wanted to say how helpful and welcoming Don at the front desk was. He made sure we had everything we needed and made our experience so great that we will definitely be coming back! Keep up the good work!

My husband and I were eating dinner at Emeril's Delmonicos and we took a walk around Lee Circle after dinner. This place has really changed since we were here last. It's beautiful. We happened to walk by the Hotel Modern & just walked in to check the prices (we weren't even sure if we were going to stay overnight in... More

Everyone so happy to see us, so friendly from beginning to end. Loved Tivoli & Lee and the bar. Our room was clean, they let us check in early, called taxis for us, and of course, we love Scarlett!! The whole place has a cool vibe and full of that New Orleans charm we love so much. We have never... More

I'm always thrilled with the Modern experience - a great example of genuine hospitality by people who truly enjoy their guests. Love the convenience, love the style and the food and Tivoli & Lee is world class. I'll be back for more! And Miss Scarlet is really the best employee - chirp chirp! (or is it squawk, squawk) john

Rick made me feel immediately like I was in New Orleans. He warmth, friendliness, and accent all started and ended my stay at The Hotel Modern in the most pleasant, southern way. I would recommend the Hotel to friends and will visit again. Thank you. T.Hebert

Wonderful hotel, I was reading other reviews before we came, and iam glad that I went to see for myself. My lady and I just left this morning and all I can say is it was a wonderful experience ( the city and the Hotel Modern). I understand that you can't please everyone but from my experience it was great.... More

Pros: Pet friendly. I think it's a separate building from the main hotel, but we got zero complaints even after leaving her kenneled in the room for a bit. Clean room. Definitely a no-fuss room with the basics but nevertheless, clean. Accommodating staff. We arrived in town earlier than expected and they let us do an early check in. Location.... More

I asked friends and colleagues for a hotel recommendation in New Orleans - near central business district but not in district. I also asked for B&B suggestions. I went with Hotel Modern - which was described as funky but nice with the sweetest parrot in the lobby. I arrived at Hotel Modern and the staff was so helpful and welcoming!... More

I'm currently staying at The Modern Hotel, New Orleans. I arrived at 10am to check in however, my problems started prior to check in. I called on the night June 22 and spoke with a young lady, during our talk I stressed the importance of double beds. I made this call because I commonly book through Priceline and that is... More

We're not really hotel people, but we won two nights at a charity auction. If you want a sleek, small, "modern" hotel, this is a good choice. They have done a great job with the lobby, restaurant and bar. The service is excellent and authentic; you deal with real people who don't have to stick to a corporate script, so... 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
