Suspect the best way to describe a stay at The Modern was stated by another couple in the lobby---This is the like a Saturday Night Live skit! And I would offer this was not meant in a positive way.
Where to begin---
Hotel is located adjacent to an abandoned gas station
Panhandlers typically hang out in the circle
There is no front desk---so a staff member 'disappears' wtih your credit card for a prolonged period as part of the check in process
The staff is inexperienced and immature. Arrived in the morning AFTER calling en route and had to wonder around the lobby calling 'is anybody home' before a person appeared
City has stated that one shouldn't drink the water BUT you have to go to the desk and ASK for bottled water and then the staff tells you---'well, I brushed my teeth with city water this morning and I feel ok'

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