“Great weekend stay at The Hotel Modern!”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

I spent 4 nights at The Hotel Modern this past weekend and we enjoyed every minute of it! The staff was friendly upon our arrival, the décor was a refreshing change from other cookie cutter hotels, and the location really couldn't be better. We were able to walk to the Superdome for a game, catch the streetcar to go uptown, and had plenty of options within walking distance for food, drinks, or entertainment. However, the hotel restaurant and bar were pretty hard to beat! Brunch at Tivoli & Lee w/ the Bloody Mary bar is the perfect way to start a Saturday in New Orleans. Needless to say, I look for to staying at The Hotel Modern again soon!

This was our 1st time to stay here. "LargeRoom"(#408) was not that large. The 1 window looked out on a solid brick wall building next door. Comfortable bed. Reception upon arrival was..different, as no one was there. When we were finally noticed, we were asked to 'wait'. Check in seemed confusing to the staff.We asked if there was room service,"yes, a menu is located next to phone on desk in room". We did not have a menu, so we called reception and they sent one up. We were told to place our order the next morning. We tried, but we were told "room service was canceled. sorry." We could order and come down and take it out. Housekeeping seems to be the downfall at this hotel: trash was not always emptied, soap bar not replenished,along w coffee cups and CLEAN glasses. We had to call reception for ice, bath linens, clean glasses, paper coffee cups, an iron & ironing board. One day there were NO bath towels left after our room had been "cleaned". During our stay, we left a handwritten list of items we requested(trash out, cups, glasses, etc) and it was mostly ignored. Many of the white bath towels were stained with unattractive black streaks. The reception entrance is quite nice with interesting art & colorful decor. Ice water at desk for guests is a welcome touch. The location is convenient. The Bellocq Bar was the nicest part of the stay. Creative bar, fun, lovely staff-highly recommend a visit here ! I would not recommend Hotel Modern or return due to the lack of interest in the Housekeeping Department.

I fell in love with Hotel Modern, its the right amount of trendy accompanied with the right amount of Southern Hospitality. I loved that the check in wasn't an impersonal counter but a small desk and a friendly face with an ipad, so cool! Also how neat is it that there at the check in is Ms. Scarlet the red parrot!
We ate at Tivoli and Lee, the restaurant, and the decor was fabulous and the food was just as great! My favorite thing was the craft cocktails at the bar across the courtyard- its has the neatest atmosphere!
I would definitely recommend The Hotel Modern!

Touring NOLA with an art group we chose the Hotel Modern on Lee Circle because of ideal proximity to galleries, museums, and restaurants. Did not disappoint! Tidy, very nicely designed, super generous, friendly staff, and a singing parrot named Scarlet in the Lobby. We love this place!

I was during a convention in October 2012. The rooms are a bit small, but very clean and cozy. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. And you get all those little treats like Punch in the reception, and the lovely parrot Scarlet. There is a nice patio, and you can also take a bike from the hotel to travel in NOLA on a bike. Also, the hotel is nearby the center, so you will not need any other transportation in NOLA.
Highly recommended!

I just recently stayed at the hotel modern last week and let me tell you what a fun and comfortable hotel it is. We were greeted immediately curb side and bags taken from us and checking was the easiest and friendliest. At night they have a really cool bar with great cocktails in a really cool environment. The food at the restaurant was great also, overall i didn't know what I was walking into when making a reservation for this place but I WILL BE BACK for a stay at The Hotel Modern. Oh and the beds are simply the best!
