Hotel Modern is a great value and I would definitely recommend it to those traveling to NOLA. Check in was quick and easy, staff was super friendly and accomodating, and there is a great bar in the lobby if you want to grab a drink before heading out on the town. The beds were really comfortable and the room was clean and had all the conveniences of home including plush robes and even a stocked bar and snack cabinet.
The location is pretty good - close to the Riverwalk, the Arts District, the Convention Center, as well as the abundance of nightlife, art galleries, and restaurants in the warehouse district. You are also in easy proximity to jump on the streetcar to take you towards Uptown and the Garden District since the streetcar line is right in front of the hotel. If you want to go to the French Quarter or Harrah's, I'd recommend calling a cab - about $7 cab ride to get you to the Canal Street entrance of Harrah's which will also put you in better walking distance to the Quarter (just cross the street and go down Decatur and you're in the quarter).

The Lounge takes its name from photographer E.J. Bellocq, who secretly photographed the madams of pre-prohibition New Orleans.
