the classic boutique hotel mistake is the aloof desk person who comes finally to check you in with their fancy ipad thing but doesn't really engage, sounds slightly insulting all the time and makes no attempt to be charming and friendly. And this is a charming friendly city, and all the mod cons in the world won't make up for... More

Despite the nice athmosphere at the entrance, where you can find a nice bar restaurant, I must say that my stay wasn't the best. Room are small and a little claustrophobic as the window is quite small. It's hard to do anything in the bathroom as it is so small that the toilet will be always in your way. It's... More

The room was comfortable and the decor was very cool. The staff were attentive. All of our interaction with them was positive. (Thanks especially Nicole and bellmen Nelson and Rick). The location is close, but not too close, to the French Quarter and Canal Street. And the street car passes right in front of the hotel. This was our stay... More

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.

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
