I booked this hotel on Groupon as a one night extension to a work trip. I may have been a bit spoiled all week as I stayed at The Roosevelt for the "work" portion of my trip and then switched to Hotel Modern for the last night of my stay so I could actually explore the city for a bit.... More

Right on Lee Circle the property is in the right spot. Literally two block from the WWII and other museums and on the street car line it can't be beat. My room was small, nothing wrong just small. The public spaces are fine slightly worn. The staff was very very nice. A good solid place to stay

I decided last minute to go to New Orleans to enjoy the few days me and my wife both had off together. I chose The Hotel Modern because it was one of the only hotels I saw with an elevator. The hotel is exactly what they said modern (design and all) the only thing they were missing was a business... More

Friendly staff, great breakfast, very clean, beautiful furnishings, very New Orleans. Located within walking distance to the French Quarter, grocery store, pharmacy. Right next door to the public train car if you do not want to walk. Across the street from Lee Circle. Next door to the WWII Museum and the Ogden Art Museum.

Pet friendly. Very pet friendly. I like that. I just came back from a job in NOLA, and had 8 birds, in two rooms. The rooms were booked for us, by my client, and I was a little worried...but, we were satisfied with the friendliness of the staff. Rooms are on the small side. But very clean. We had a... More

We were looking for a less expensive option for lodging and picked this for its price,which was its biggest positive. Others: right on the trolley line going 2 directions and still walking distance to the canal, river and french district and location to museums. Furnishings all in need of a good cleaning or replacement. Staff tried hard and were pleasant.... More

This was a great stay and I really enjoyed it. I Give It 2 Thumbs Up. Definitely plan to stay there again. The staff is very attentive to your needs. I definitely give it an 8 out of 10. Breakfast service was probably a seven out of ten. It was a real enjoyable stay. If you're looking for somewhere that's... More

This is our 2nd time staying here with a 3rd coming up shortly. I would highly recommend this hotel for others who might be attending events at Superdome, Smoothie King or CHAMPIONS SQUARE.

Loved this Hotel. The Staff were friendly . The room was Clean and quiet. Free parking. And breakfast. If you're looking for a place to rest this is perfect. No pool on property. The Trolley stops in front of hotel. Glad we decided on this hotel , traveling from Florida to Houston and needed the family to rest Great choice.

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.
