I am a 30+ year business traveler, mostly stateside. I've seen many many hotels in my travels, but I have not seen the likes of Moderne in a long time. The place is simple and elegant. The building is small. The service is off the charts. The bed was like heaven. There is parking right next door for a fixed 24-hour rate of 20 bucks.
We drove from Wisconsin to New York to watch our daughter sing at Carnegie Hall on 3/25. Yeah long drive but fun. So imagine our reaction when we got there too early for check-in, and they insisted that they unload our car from the garage next door, hold it until the room was ready, then call us when it was time. Our hostess at the front desk was completely warm, engaging, fun, and accommodating. There was nothing we could toss at her that she could not handle. And she was not happy to just handle it, she asked all the right questions to make sure we would end up in the right places at the right time and the cheapest cost. She is likely the most professional front desk person I have ever encountered. Seriously, I would easily have pegged her as an owner of the place - that's how much she cared about our satisfaction at staying here. It felt like we were guests in her house.
The room was eclectic. Exceptionally modern style, well-designed and executed, and it just had an awesome energy about it. The bathroom was really great - very high end fixtures (we do re-habs, so we know all the brands) and again very well executed. But the bed - it was amazing. The pillows and mattress were like sleeping on a cloud, without the draft.
I can tell you this, if I were a frequent traveler to New York, you would not be reading this because I would be keeping Moderne a secret. Lucky for you that i'm not. But I can tell you that our experience here far exceeded our expectations. Regrets? Yes - that we didn't have another week to stay at this hotel. It made our experience in New York one of the most pleasant and memorable getaways in a long time.
