The Hotel Modern is a good hotel. My friend and I stayed here over Labor Day weekend and were pleased with the accommodations. The rooms are a little dark, and there isn't much counter space for two gals and all their products. But for the most part the room was fine, relatively large for a New Orleans room, and very clean.
In the morning they have a very light continental breakfast consisting of pastries, coffee, and juice. The upside is that they serve good coffee, a bit of an anomaly for a hotel. Water and wine are also usually available at the front desk.
The staff at the hotel is also quite friendly and they are pleased to have your business and it shows. Apparently you can have pets at this hotel. I did not have any, but a gentleman I met at continental breakfast told me he stays at The Hotel Modern once a month and loves it because they are very pet friendly and he can bring his dog with him.
On the downside this hotel is about a 15 block walk to the French Quarter. At night you'll want to take a cab back and it's about $10 with tip. There is also no pool or hot tub which is a bit of a bummer when on vacation. And our room overlooked the courtyard which is a bar with music in the evening. It's pretty loud, but I'm sure it can be avoided if you ask for a quiet room.
I'd stay here again if the price were right. My preference would be a hotel closer to the Quarter with a pool. But if I were on business, or in town for a convention or football game The Hotel Modern would be a good choice.
