I booked this hotel on the strength of reviews on this site. Oh what a mistake. My wife and I arrived at approximately 4.30pm on the 24th September. On arrival we were told that there was no room available as the hotel was full. I produced our confirmation email but the 2 persons on the desk said that this was... More

Very good hotel for the money and a great location, about a 10/15 min walk to Canal Street and 10 mins to the river. Staff were friendly, room was well equipped and comfy, breakfast was adequate. There was no bar in the hotel but there is a little local one just across the street. Price of parking in my opinion... More

This hotel can best be described as quirky. Lobby was really neat and staff was friendly. Room was small- double. It seemed clean but right before we checked out- I noticed mold growing on AC vent. It was noticeable but I just hadn't looked there. Room was different with books in it and a purple wall. They had nice toiletry... More

The hotel looks nice on the outside but there are a few things you need to wary of. First the parking cost is ridiculous. $30 a day for self park!! Second, we booked a queen sized bed. When we arrived, we were put up in a tiny room with a full sized bed. The bed frame was queen sized but... More

If you are looking for a clean decent space to stay, Hotel Modern is great. My only dislike was counter space in the bathroom. Ladies need a bit more of hat, but overall it was clean, comfortable and the staff was very courteous and knowledgeable. We went on this trip for a football opening game. The trolley circle is in...

A real good place to stay, clean and simple, close to everything in NOLA. Look for parking options, it goes from $10 to $26 depending on how close to the hotel. Don't miss the street cart ride for $3.

Great place to stay overnight for making Amtrak connections and it is great to have the early breakfast before boarding a train. Also the walk there seemed to be a safe, easy walk to the hotel from the station.

Hotel is in the business district of NOLA opposite Lee Circle and a great place for transportation, that is very frequent. It's nice to be just out of the hustle and bustle of the centre. The reception staff were great, very friendly and helpful. We were going to pay $26/day to park just behind the hotel, but the receptionist told... More

Very pleased. I think we found our permanent hotel in Nola. Small but nice rooms. Reasonable prices. Courteous and helpful. About 20 minutes walking to the French Quarter, so it's a perfect distance. Continental breakfast. Everything we need and Cajun Encounters even picked up up right outside the front door! We will be back!!

Staying in Arts District / Warehouse District

Neighborhood Profile
Arts District / Warehouse District
Once a thriving industrial zone, today this district is home to a buzzing arts scene with an amazing assortment of galleries, boutiques, and studios having moved in and set up shop throughout the disused warehouses for which the area is so well known. Much of the art you'll come across here is local in scope, ownership and inspiration. However, among the many old brick warehouses are modern structures of steel and glass housing large-scale cultural institutions of national prominence such as the National World War II Museum, the Contemporary Arts Center, and the Ogden Museum of Southern Art. Just as eye catching as what’s on view inside the galleries and museums is the chance to see your ship come in at the Julia Street Cruise Terminal, which serves as a wistful reminder of the city’s historic maritime prominence.
