This was my second visit to The Hotel Modern. The Hotel is beautiful, clean, and is in a great location to many local attractions. We started with the King room and then upgraded to the Jr. Suite for added space. All of the staff is professional and friendly, including Don B. who was always there to answer the questions I...

I have received the Hotel Modern previously but we stayed again and it has been a few years. We are equally enthusiastic about recommending it to people. As one would guess, the hotel is modern in decor. It is sort of a hipster place but in all the right ways. We are all between 50-65 and think of ourselves as... More

I regret that I can't give this hotel a better overall rating, it was really quite nice despite some obstacles. Our first room was dirty. At first, we thought it just hadn't been vacuumed, no biggie - I'll call house keeping... as long as the bed is clean... pull back the sheets - not only is there a noticeable hair... More

Angie, Thank you for being patient with us!!! Obviously the first room you checked into should have been just like the third one. We know not every time we are perfect but we do try to give our guests the best that we can. I am glad we were able to have a good time while you were here. More

I stayed at the Hotel Modern early January for one night. The service was good from the staff I met. I had a king room that was very small so maybe I was just unlucky. Purple wall was interesting and not a big deal but not too my taste. The wood floor was extremely slippery and I almost feel. I... More

The location was great with easy access to Smoothie King Center, The French Quarter, garden District & I-10. Valet parking was $30 which I didn't mind paying. Free wifi. The hotel was cozy, clean and the staff was wonderful. Our room was on the 9th floor with an excellent view. The rooms were clean. Being that I'm an author, I... More

Hotel Modern is one that I really am not sure whether I would recommend to a friend or colleague. The positives are there but are tempered with negative or mixed feelings about...well... some of those same positives. For example, the front desk and bell staff in person seem to always be friendly and genuinely concerned for guests; however, when asked... More

JC we are so glad that you came to check our property out! Things are always in relative terms, like yes there seem to be some less desirable people however during Mardi Gras a lot of the Central District comes over to us to make the most of the parades. We hope to see you back soon! More

Had a great a time in New Orleans, and The Hotel Modern had a great location (Lee Circle), beautiful large room (King Size Bed!), and cool art.

We spent two nights there for a convention. The hotel was clean and inviting, and the staff were friendly and very attentive. We got a room with two double beds and it was spacious and comfortable.

Location is great... off of St.Charles in a safe part of town. Lots of walking involved as trolley system pretty unreliable. We had a medium sized King room. It was small and window in room was dirty and hard to see out of as it was small itself. Rooms are definitely in need of some renovations already as carpet was... More
