Newer Modern Hotels not renovated

Which hotels are more modern and new/er in the French quarter. Price not an object. Friend we are going with will not stay at an older/outdated hotel. This is for 3 nights in September

If someone really wants "modern and newer" I'd probably steer them away from the French Quarter and stay somewhere in the CBD or Warehouse District.

In my opinion they may be missing out on part of "what makes New Orleans New Orleans", and/or may not have an accurate idea of what some of the hotels in the Quarter are really like. But....to avoid any issues, I'd put them in a hotel in the CBD.

Otherwise I might say a place like The Monteleone is perfect for them but they'd show up on the doorstep and declare it to be old and outdated.

I have only been to NOLA once last fall, but did enjoy my stay at the W hotel in the French Quarter. Great location, modern in my opinion with a lovely courtyard: http://www.wfrenchquarter.com

We've enjoyed the Marriott on Canal very much both times we stayed there. Great rates through Priceline too.

For nice, full service and relatively new, modern and well located, consider JW Marriott; very nice with a touch of "NewOrleanish".

A hotel within the French Quarter is required to be either actually older or older in appearance, For a French Quarter "boutique", the relatively recently renovated Hotel Le Marais and W French Quarter both have some modern flair while retaining New Orleans charm. Is the desire for "modern" related to luxury and convenience, or style? There are a number of luxury hotels within older buildings which offer all modern conveniences,

As loop indicated probably the only one to fit that criteria would be the JW Marriott...
