Weird hotel. More like a hostel. Cheap, particle-board, dormitory furniture. VERY small room - like a cruise cabin. Clock/radio unplugged. Lamps not working. TV screen is small with limited digital channels. No ironing board or iron. No box spring. Did have a DORM fridge - of course. There's a wall safe in the closet - but no light to read... More

My rating is influenced by the following interaction I experienced with one of the bellman. My key did not work so I went to the front desk to inquire. While the attendant was trying to help me the Bellman started joking with me saying that I broke it. At this point I took it as a joke until he said... More

I did not book this hotel. I was relocated here due to an overbooking with the original hotel I had booked with. From the website I thought I had nothing to worry about and while it was not the worst experience it was not great and I would not recommend it unless you are desperate. Pros: Customer service.

We stayed at the Hotel Moderns this past weekend and loved everything about it! The hotel was beautiful and centrally located! The best part of our trip however, was meeting Carl the concierge who took amazing care of us! I would recommend staying here!

Stayed here for Halloween 2015 and it's a lovely hotel. The bar downstairs does a great brunch and the staff are all really helpful. The rooms are a little on the small side, but then if you're in New Orleans and spending loads of time in your room, you're doing it all wrong!

Carl the bellman took care of us and made us laugh during our entire stay! Good location. Clean, simple rooms. (Bed was a little hard.) Right on the St. Charles street car line, or a long (about a mile), pleasant walk to Canal Street. Not a bad walk to the Convention Center. Easy walk to the WWII Museum.

We were really excited about this hotel and were looking forward to our stay. But then as soon as we got to our room...it was odd. Like an old storage closet that some furniture was thrown into. The phone stopped working, the bench was broken, the drawers on the dresser were in poor working order. One of the lamps had... More

We found this great hotel on Hotels Tonight! The hotel is very "Modern", hip and inviting. We stayed two nights in October, 2015, Shantel helped us check in and gave us a great room on the 10th floor overlooking the roundabout. Shantel was the best! Helpful and welcoming!

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.
