    Terrible stay!!!!

    The only thing good about this hotel was the complimentary water at the front desk and the fact that it was right in front of the parade route for mardi gras. First off no one out of all three nights came to clean our room and when I called to ask what time does housekeeping come, some lady at the front desk gave me an attitude saying "I wouldn't have that information, what do you want ma'm?" So, me shocked just simply asked if they can send up housekeeping when they can but of course no one came. The room was small, there was no iron or ironing board. The towels leave white lint all over your body and to top it off the restuarant next door is terrible. We waited an hour and a half for dry cold food, and their excuse was Mardi gras was overwhelming. I'm sorry but if this event is the biggest you have all year you should prepare and have a full staff, at least that's what New York does on it's holiday months. Never again!!!! The only thing decent they had was good drinks but then again you can find that anywhere in New Orleans. So I give this hotel 1 star for terrible service and terrible restaurant quality. Don't waste your money!!!

    Would Happily Stay Longer

    The name "Modern" is suitable. I only stayed one night and whilst the room wasn't big it was comfortable and clean. I't didn't have an iron and ironing board which I may have needed for a longer stay but these may be available on request. I appreciated the easy to use coffee maker and adequate number of well place power outlets.

    Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

    It's located right on the border of Uptown and Downtown and very handy to a few museums. It's on the route of the Hop on Hop off city sights bus which stop at the WW2 Museum nearby. Tickets are reasonable and last for three days for the standard price.

    Not so bad if you don;t mind the commute

    I happened to arrive right when a parade was coming down St Charles Street, so getting through the Police Barricades was a challenge. Once there, the clerk was pleasant but the bell hops did not even hold door open for you as you dragged your luggage in. The room was pleasant, the window small with a higher than average sill. There was no iron! Housekeeping did not empty coffee or refresh until I left a tip. I found that the trash cans without bags was not sanitary. Location is good if you are a city person who does not mind taking trolley into French Quarter. The hotel is right next to art museum so that is a plus. I did not think the price matched the experience - I paid premium due to time of year. The restaurant is good but pricey as is all of New Orleans eateries. The Beet Salad was to die for.

    Stayed here for RNR Marathon. Close to the start, restaurants, C-Stores and the Convention Center. Reasonable price for that weekend. One small problem with Heater, but fixed within 30 minutes.
