Great getaway for the weekend

The rooms were well kept and the bed was comfortable. It was not like normal hotel hard matrices. There was a hint of mildue in the air. It wasn't strong though. The bathroom was clean and had good water pressure. If you don't want to pay the fee for vallee parking, it is only a 2 block walk which is 5 mins. The trolley runs right infront of the hotel and only costs $3 for an all day pass. It will take you straight to Bourbon St./French Quarter and several other destinations. The staff was quick to give good recommendations on places for whatever we wanted to do.

Be careful down Bourbon St. with kids, they have several strip clubs. I say that because I saw quite a few kids there.

Needs a lesson on cleanliness and customer service

The hotel is in a prime location, just blocks from the convention center and a decent walk from the dome and french quarter. The hotel was totally booked and the internet reviews were good. We got to the hotel room only to find that the bathroom was not properly cleaned - feces under the seat! There was a leak in the bathroom and we were told that a roll out was one price only to get charged a per night fee that was eventually waived due to the inconvenience. The maintenance man flooded the toilet and housekeeping left soaked towels in the bathroom. There is no real front desk, just staff that sits in a room behind a bookcase. Throughout the weekend, we witnessed several complaints and were told by acquaintance who had stayed at the hotel before that customer service was bad. To the hotel's defense, I found the staff to be amicable and willing to accomodate and help. I just think that they need more training and the hotel needs to rethink its strategy on accomodating customers.

Great for wanting to be near Uptown

I've stayed at many hotels in New Orleans. This hotel's decor is not the most appealing to me. However, the staff is GREAT! The parking is also great because you don't have to do valet. There is a paid parking lot very close, which is perfect for people who like to come and go at leisure. This is my 2nd time staying and will continue to choose Hotel Modern.

Good conference hotel

Overall it was a good position for the conference a short work to the convention area. Staff very helpful. Room was a little noisy for me with the constant drone of the air conditioning unit. Restaurant and bar very good excellent food.

Wonderful Place to Stay

Right in Downtown New Orleans--close to Warehouse district, CBD, French quarter (1mi), the Marigny (2mi) walking distance (2mi) to the Treme, easy cab ride uptown for music at Tipitina's or the Maple Leaf Bar. Great hotel bar with expert mixologist on staff; also, hotel has a parrot. Herbsaint and Cochon less than a mile away, for amazing meals (make a reservation!)

Everyone was just great, I did not think it was in walking distance to the French Quarter like they said but there was a trolley across the street which was a lot of fun to ride.
