Have Not been to The Big Easy since 1986......I can honest say New Orleans is back and Better than Ever! We booked Hotel Modern on a Travelzoo deal and was not disappointed. Although we were on a Large King Room.....it was not really large but it was clean and comfortable. The hotel is located on Lee Circle and the streetcar... More

Rick and Nicole at the front desk are beautiful and fun people just like New Orleans itself! Really enjoyed my stay! A plus was that the location of the hotel was walking distance from the Convention center. The only down side that I can say is that there is no complementary breakfast that is so common now a day with... More

Not what I expected at all.... I was pleseantly surprised by the staff, the rooms and the restaurant!! Not a luxurious hotel but it does the job just fine. Near the superdome and the french quarter is a big plus for sure. Street cars right by the hotel will take you just about any place you wanna go. Dont expect... More

I stayed at Hotel Modern initially because it was considerably cheaper when I was looking to book(and I got a great deal through one of the booking sites.) It was a $33 flat rate ride in a taxi from the airport and it sits off the highway so the ride didn't take long at all. Its a great little hotel;... More

This hotel is funky in design. To get around, you go up on an elevator and wind around hallways, sometimes taking you outside and up a few steps. It is located near the really cool WW2 museum. A good walk from the French Quarter, but nice to be on a trolley line. Easy to get uptown and to the edge... More

We stayed for a meeting at the convention center and it was an easy walk. It's a little far from the French Quarter, but the cable cars run by every 20 minutes so it was simple just to hop on one. The room was very clean, albeit the bathroom was quite small. Best part was how quiet the hotel is.... More

We stayed at the Hotel Modern for a little under a week, and had a truly lovely time. The hotel is situated in a lovely area, with a ton of museums extremely close by, and is a scenic 15 minute walk away from the heart of the city. The in room amenities were fine. Our room wasn't gigantic, but it... More

We have stayed at several of the 4-5 star hotels in New Orleans, but the service here has them beat. The rooms are small as many of the other reviews indicate, but there was all the amenities we needed and the location is great. We walked to and from the convention center and the French Quarter several times and both... More

The Hotel Modern is great, but it could be so amazing if only it didn't fall short on some important points. I wanted to give The Hotel Modern an "excellent" rating, but couldn't do so in good conscience due to a few issues we experienced during our 1-night stay. Terrific front office staff, great atmosphere, a cool, eclectic decor mix... More
