I stayed at the Hotel Modern for a long weekend in NOLA and will definitely be back. The hotel sits right on Lee CIrcle in the Arts District aka the Warehouse District. The hotel itself is in great shape with a very modern, "hip" feel to it. There's even a parrot, Scarlet, in the lobby. The lobby feels like you've walked into someone's private library rather than a hotel.
My room was on the 8th floor and while small, was perfect for thr weekend. This is New Orleans so you're probably not staying in your room much. The bathroom was fine for one although if two people were trying to get ready, it might be a squeeze due to the small sink and ledge vs. a countertop. The bed was very comfortable and I had no problems sleeping at night. They even provide an umbrella in the room to use although thankfully I never needed it.
The location is very convenient. I love to walk, so walking form the hotel to the French Quarter was not a problem. If you don't want to walk, the St. Charles streetcar runs right past the hotel so you have easy access out to he Garden District or down to Canal where you can walk into the Quarter or connect with the Canal line.
Nearby you have great attractions like the WWII Museum, the Contemporary Arts Center, galleries, etc. and much, much more nearby. Great food is everywhere in New Orleans and you have places like Cochon, Cochon Butcher, Capdeville, American Sector, and the Soda Shop (great breakfast biscuits!) in the area and so much more.
