Great Experience Overall

Great experience. The staff was very helpful with recommendations to restaurants and activities. They went above and beyond on personal service. The hotel has a very non-traditional approach to check-in/ check-out procedure. There really isn't a front desk but the staff are always around to answer any questions or help in any way. The one thing I didn't like was that the air conditioning in the room is motion detection activated. So at night while you are still it turns off and can get warm rather quickly. You wake up hot and have to wave an arm or a leg to turn it back on. It is very energy conscious but inefficient cooling system.

Great for couples looking for a value getaway

We loved this place. It's perfect for a weekend in New Orleans, located right between Uptown and the French Quarter. You can't beat this location in the St. Charles roundabout. Plus, the service is excellent, and the hotel is very charming and unique. If you're looking for a place to crash for a week with the kids, this may not be the place though. The valet parking is $25/night, and the rooms are cozier, so it's really just perfect for a couple on a short stay - with or without a pet.

a Modern experience

The room was very small hence small room so make sure you booked the appropriate size. Too many items offered at ridicoulous costs especially with a gas station across the street with the same things for much less-overall the experience was fine

Location/Value make up for Staff

Front desk staff - day shift and night shift - need to get on same page. Day staff was friendly whereas the night staff seemed put-off by the slightest thing. We asked three times for a map of the city (once to the concierge and twice to the front desk) and never received it. The continental breakfast is pathetic but for the cost of the room it's standard - Hotel Modern obviously doesn't believe in giving "over-and-above" service all around. The cleaning staff were the best part of the paid staff, in my opinion. If you plan on reserving a room here during the weekend, request a room in the main tower NOT above the bar/restaurant area - the music at the bar is blaring until around 1:30am or so and travels to the rooms above. With the abundance of Hotel choices in the area at the same nightly price as Hotel Modern, I personally would not book another stay in this hotel - I would try my chances with another equally-priced hotel.

Great Hotel

Great hotel, a little bit of a walk to canal/burbon st but the street cars run all day and night and an all day pass is only $3! Street car stops right by the hotel so it's very convenient

If you arrive late at night, buy a $3 day pass for the trolly after midnight, head down to Burbon st for the night and the pass won't expire until 4am the next day (28 hrs later)!
