The Modern Hotel New Orleans lives up to its name! Very modern hotel with great rooms and customer service. Great location as well! Very friendly staff. Damien made sure me and my family were comfortable. The hotel restaurant was great as well. I recommend the breakfast. Minutes from the French Quarter and animal friendly.

I enjoyed the location of Hotel Modern, just around the corner from the WWII museum and the Odgen Museum of Southern Art. The staff of the hotel is very professional and never failed to greet me and ask if I needed assistance.

This hotel is adorable! The bartenders are great and very helpful. Carl greeted us and has been absolutely the sweetest our entire stay. The staff here is lovely all around. What a treat! I highly recommend this hotel all around if you're looking for a hip little boutique hotel! Thumbs up :)

I recently stayed at the hotel modern in New Orleans. I found it to be a very nice hotel. The rooms were clean and modern appearing. If not a little small but it was cozy. The room had everything I needed. The concierge service was amazing and people who worked at the hotel were always very willing to help out.... More

This is a very beautiful hotel with a welcoming, friendly courteous staff. We were often addressed by name. It is located near the trams going to the French Quarter and Garden District with museums located right around the corner. Parking was available for $10/day and we took advantage of their "green" credit in the restaurant ($10/day) by reusing our sheets... More

Decent hotel with views over General Lee's statue in Lee Circus; walking distance of river & WW2 museum; tram car stop nearby. Limited choice by US standards but good quality breakfast. Pleasant, helpful staff.

We were very impressed with the Hotel Modern. Everyone was extremely friendly and welcoming. We were upgraded to a suite and it was wonderful! One and 1/2 baths, great view of downtown NOLA. We will definitely stay there again when we come back. My only concern was their hotel parrot, Scarlet, seemed lonely in her cage. I hope they let... More

This hotel is located in the Warehouse District directly across from Lee Circle. It is surrounded by art galleries/studios and museums. The Charleston streetcar runs in front which will take you to the French Quarters in one direction and the Garden District and cemetery in the opposite direction. It is best purchase a 1, 2 or 3 day pass. This... More

I found a deal on Groupon and booked it largely due to the many positive comments on Tripadvisor. However, there were several turnoffs that caught me off guard. The "medium" size room was small to me. My wife compared it to a college dorm. In order to get ice, you had to call down for it.., no ice machines. If... More

Unfortunately this will be our last time staying here. We've stayed at The Modern multiple times over the past few years, and while the staff remains consistently pleasant and professional the room quality has really declined. Some of the recent disappointments we've encountered include large holes in our towels and sheets, carpet that has obviously not been vacuumed, dark, sticky... More
