Too expensive for what you get!

The veneer of new, hip decor is as thin as the walls. Cool building, great location, but needs a deeper-level renovation to be as cool as it's trying to be. Not terrible, but minor annoyances (noise, no remote for the tv, no coffee cups in the room the second morning) made it not worth the $250/night I paid.

Great Stay

The hotel is beautiful, well decorated with art and a parrot! The staff was very helpful. We opted for a small room and there was plenty of space. They had CO Bigelow products (shampoos and wash, lotion, shower cap) which are always great. The courtyard is pretty and a pleasant, shaded place to relax. We didn't have a chance to try to the restaurant, but it looked good. We really liked the location. It was our first time to NOLA and we went during Labor Day weekend. We initially wanted to stay in the French Quarter, but everything was booked. We ended up finding a deal for Hotel Modern and previous reviews said it was in a safe area so we took it. Once we got here, we realized we made the right choice. The French Quarter is a lot of fun, but we were happy to be able to sleep in a quieter neighborhood. It's also right between the French Quarter, which is a very easily walkable distance away (we only cabbed it at night just to be on the safe side) and the Garden District with all the beautiful homes and Lafayette Cemetery. And if you want to experience the trolley, it's right on the green line which can take you in either direction. I would definitely stay here again. The one thing it was missing was an iron.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

The trolley is fun to experience as a one time sort of thing, but it's also pretty slow because it makes frequent stops. if you are up for a nice walk during the daytime, you can easily walk to the French Quarter or in the opposite direction towards the Garden District to some of the restaurants along the way.

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.

Great family visit

My experience at the hotel was great overall. The service is what made it enjoyable. I travel with my son all the time so it is important that the hotel possess children-friendly attributes. The staff here were great with accomadting any needs. I had a few issues with my first room but the staff gladly switched me to another room. Parking was $30 a night, though.

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

Good vaule, but

A great value with great staff, next to WWII museum and public transportation. But be aware of a couple of surprises - no coffe pot in room, no coffee downstairs, and almost $50/night for parking!

Great hotel, great location

Wonderfully comfortable hotel designed on the modern concept - few amenities, small lobby, simple decorations, and good price. Room small, but very comfortable. No coffee, but plenty of snacks and drinks, if you want to pay extra. Located next to WWII Museum and street car outside that can take you down scenic St. Charles St. or directly to Bourbon St.
