Good Price/Value Flightly Staff

Would recommend Tue, May 8, 2012
Overall.. great experience! A few things were a bit off however... The toiletries in the bathroom were an assortment of random soaps from other hotel brands. A little odd. The staff was sooooo nice. However there was a disconnect somewhere in the staffing. We asked for taxi's to be called... They were not. Wake up calls never happend. Staff didn't seem to be professionaly trained in hotel management. They were still so lovely and happy to help. It was just odd... it seemed like there was a lack of communication between departments and the front desk. Otherwise a great experience. I will be back.

Dining

Have drinks and snacks at the hotel bar. Perhaps one of my favorite spots in NOLA!!

Tiny room & very expensive valet

Would not recommend Sun, May 6, 2012
The valet is very expensive ($40) per day. The hotel can charge whatever they want because there is no public parking lot close by. My room is 155 square feet with no windows. It was like sleeping in a match box. My suitcase took up the little available walking space by the bed. The room was clean though.

Good start, with a rough ending.

Would recommend Wed, Apr 18, 2012
I am a business traveler that basically spends the vast majority of my time on the road and in hotels. I was travelling from Georgia to Texas and decided to spend the night in New Orleans on 4/17/12. My wife booked the room for me, so other than where it was located and that the parking was supposed to be secure, I knew nothing about the hotel. When I arrived at the Hotel Modern, I was immediately impressed with the appearence of the hotel and its surroundings. My work truck, which is packed with expensive equipment, was valet parked in a secure area which is monitored 24/7 for $18.00 a day. When I entered the lobby, I was immediate greeted by the staff. After asking my name and inviting me to sit down, I was offered a glass of wine while I was checked in. During the check in process, the staff members chatted with me and explained the various amenities and offerings of the hotel. I planned to do some computer work in the morning and check out somewhat early, so I asked about breakfast and room service and was told that they began serving at 7 am. I was assigned room 906, which turned out to be on the front of the hotel and had an impressive view. The room is small, but stylish and provided all the comforts of home except for in-room coffee maker and there are no ice machines, but if you call room service, they will bring a bucket to your room. The hotel itself is not in the French Quarter, but is right on a trolly line, which runs every few minutes, and brings you directly to all the areas of interest. That evening, I had dinner in the French Quarter and did some siight-seeing, and after several hours, returned to the hotel. I woke up about 6 am, did some business related work, took a shower and about 7:20 am, I began trying to order room service. From that time, until about 9 am, I attempted to contact room service and kept reaching a recording. I called the front desk and explained what was happening and they assured me that they would contact room service directly, and have them call me back. It never happened. When I went to check out, I observed that the restaurant was open and a few people were inside having coffee, so I am unsure what the issue was that morning. I informed the person that checked me out of the problems that I had encountered and surprisingly, they offered nothing other than a half hearted apology and no explanation for the breakdown in service that morning. No coffee, no breakfast and a bad ending to an otherwise good stay

Simple, but nice

Would recommend Sun, Apr 15, 2012
The whole concept of this hotel is elegant simplicity. They have a wonderful staff, but It could use a little "polishing." There is no iron or ironing board in the room, and the color schemes are a little drab. The elevator is a little dark and it is scary that you can walk off the street at 2:00 and there is no code or lock, and there is no one at the "makeshift" front desk. Lastly, you have great access to the street car and the garden district, however you are too far from the French Quarter and Borbon Street if that's what you want to see. Overall, still a nice hotel.

Dining

Head to Trolley Stop on St. Charles for breakfast.

Great but needs a few tweeks

Would recommend Wed, Apr 11, 2012
Room price was reasonable, but valet parking much higher ($42+) than average in this area, bringing room/parking to approach $200 per day. No sensible alternatives exist and they know it. Maid service a bit iffy, forgetting to replace some items. Bed comfortable. Room small but certainly large enough for two. Front desk personnel excellent. Access to the trolley excellent. Close to art galleries, WWII and art museum. Restaurant food good but needs more variety. Restaurant noisy, but aren't they all in N.O.

Time saver

Use the trolley. Cheap. Stops about 1 block from hotel. Ride to the Quarter only takes about 5 minutes. Don't drive your own vehhicle or you'll spend $$$ for downtown lots.

A surprise bargain!

Would recommend Tue, Apr 10, 2012
The Modern Hotel was a pleasant surprise and the staff was really a big help. The location, one block from the Trolley made getting around New Orleans an easy treat! Located in the arts district and five minutes from the Garden District....what a treat. Room was a bit small, but for two nights it was livable. A truly helpful staff that made a genuine effort to help us find our way.

Dining

An Irish restaurant just two blocks away on St. Charles. Good food, live entertainment on Friday and Saturday night.

I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting New Orleans. The staff is super friendly, and the rooms were very clean. Easy walk to get over to the French Quarter and Bourbon Street.

First Getaway!

Would recommend Thu, Mar 15, 2012
Most important, the bed was to die for!!! My fiance and I had the best sleep of our lives before and after a night on Bourbon street. The location was far enough from the noise but walking distance from all the entertainment New Orleans has to offer. The price was reasonable. I only wish we would have been more informed about different parking prices due to a high price on valet. This was our first trip as a couple and we can't wait to go back and visit The Hotel Modern New Orleans!

Entertainment hint

Make sure to stop by Decatur St. to watch the acrobatic show of four humorous men flipping and jumping over people. It was about a 30min show and a nice break from walking.
