The Hotel Modern was easy to book and check-in. Parking was a breeze, too. The location in good for access to St. Charles and its streetcar. Walking to the French Quarter is possible, but it is a little ways from the hotel (take the streetcar!). There are good places to eat, drink and hear live music within close walking distance....

I found the hotel to feel drab, gloomy and soiled. The colors of the hallway are depressing and the lighting doesn't help. The carpeting looked soiled. I tried two different rooms and found both to be stark in a bad way. The building is saddled with small windows and the very un"modern" two inch wooden blinds do nothing to alleviate... More

From the original artwork and beautiful parrot in the lobby--SQWAAAK!--to the exceptional service, the Hotel Modern is a cool and convenient place to stay when exploring all parts of New Orleans. Located right on Lee Circle and short walks to the French Quarter, Garden District, Warehouse District, Riverwalk and more, it is a fabulous location. Adjacent to the Ogden Museum... More

I first found the Hotel Modern when I was passing through New Orleans by train and needed a nice nearby place for an overnight layover, and found it to be a great value a very short walk away. Wasn't sure what to expect, but I was thoroughly impressed, and returned a second time to make another visit for a weekend... More

The hotel is across from the WWII museum and is a 10-15 minute walk to the Convention Center. The staff was very friendly and the room was clean. Though the workout area is hard to find, I see no good reason to discourage others from staying except that it would not be ideal for family stays. I got a room... More

Carpets have stains and the place is generally ready for update. Cheap furniture. Bathroom walls and commodes had terrible stains. The door de-programmed our card keys every single day we were there. housekeeping poor: they left the wall mounted shampoo bottle (only one in room) empty, the toilet paper roll empty and no coffee on our last day.

This was my first trip to New Orleans so I had no idea what the hotel would be like. I booked the Modern through a travel plan so I paid in full with no refunds before my trip. I visited the city April 7-11, 2015. I was very satisfied with this hotel. The rooms are structured a little different than... More

I was hugely disappointed in the Modern. For starters, I had already put a deposit of $175 on the room at booking. Then, when I gave them my credit card for incidentals, I was told that they keep a $50 per night "hold" on the card, PLUS the total charges for the room. WHY? They already had $175 of my... More
