Modern people use irons right?

The Hotel Modern has a welcoming ambience. Scarlet the parrot was a nice touch. Couldn't get towels in middle of the night. There was no iron

Great Location

This hotel is located a few blocks away from the noisy French Quarter. The World War II museum is a block away. The historic St. Charles Streetcar line runs right in front of the hotel. $3.00 will get you a day pass on the streetcars that will give you all sorts of options for traveling around the city. The brunch and build your own Bloody Mary bar are great too!

Birdie at the front

There was a bird at the front desk. I thought that was the cutest thing ever. Everyone was friendly, easy to get around the city from this hotel. My room was in front of the elevator but very quiet. Would stay here again.

Interesting

Very unique hotel. Both stylish and comfortable. My negative to take from it is that it seemed understaffed and getting help at the front desk or valet can sometimes be complicated.

It was okay considering

We arrived and check in was easy. Valet parking is $30 a day, and the first time I called them To bring my car around, I went downstairs and waited 20 minutes, no car.. The valet attendant was told the wrong Valley number by the desk clerk... Toilet bowl flushed and shop water out of toilet bowl onto floor... The rest of the room was nice, But the pictures on the Internet are not the same as the room. I called valet the second day, and went downstairs and there was no car... I had to wait an additional 15 minutes, Desk clerk forgot to tell valet to get my car. In the middle of the second night we stayed, the fire alarm went off. We were all removed out of the building at 2:30 in the morning... It was a false alarm. This hotel Needs to get their act together Before Allstate again.

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.
