The bellman who greeted me were super sweet and helpful and our bed was really comfortable but I just am used to a staying somewhere a little more upscale when I go to New Orleans . I was here for a quick trip so I was fine, but I wouldn't be happy staying here more than one night. It just seemed like a place they were trying to figure out how to run a hotel ? It's a good place, but just not for me.

We stayed at the hotel modern before we left for a cruise, our flight was delayed and we didn't get into New Orleans until very late the girl that checked us in was very nice and efficient. I know it was late but she looked like she had been asleep herself. Our room was very clean and the bathroom was HUGE! we didn't have much of a view but didn't mind because we were just there to sleep. The next morning the staff was very helpful with the checkout and getting us a taxi to go to the port. The only downside I thought was that I could not figure out the bedding there was only a sheet to cover up with luckily I had brought my own blanket or I would have froze! This hotel was great for the value and I would recommend to anyone!

Stayed here for 2 nights. Fantastic value for a beautiful, clean and comfortable hotel in a great location near WWII museum and Art District. Got deal, for $5 got full breakfast for my wife and I. Highly recommend staying here...just make sure you ask about overriding motion detector driven AC in room.

the night staff was very weird and lacked communication skills. Be prepared to pay $50 hold for accidentals. Overall, very nice hotel the room was very clean and nice. I only stayed there for a couple of hours so I didn't get the full experience. But I accomplished what I went there for...sleeping for a couple of hours until check-in for my other hotel.

We have just completed a two night stay at The Hotel Modern. It's very nicely done. The beds are comfy and the staff is excellent. The hotel is located with easy access to the St. Charles street car line, and is near CBD and Warehouse District, not a far drive to the French Quarter or Garden District. The rooms are on the smaller side, but are well designed and comfortable. Baths are large. Great place to stay.

The hotel was in a great location and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Staying at The Hotel Modern was a unique experience for me. I especially enjoyed the parrot that greets the guests. In addition, I was grateful that this hotel allowed me to bring my dog along. There is a lot of grass in the vicinity as well as dog friendly restaurants within walking distance.

We arrived at the hotel and were greeted by the friendly doorman. As we walked into the hotel we were confused about where to check-in. There was a young guy standing by a desk but he completely ignored us. I wasn't sure he worked there. I asked him where we could check-in and he replied "right here, why?" It took me about 2 seconds to realize he was high out of his mind. He would just stare and ask me to repeat everything. I had to ask him if he was ok. He seemed really paranoid. Then he started ranting incoherently about other guests and the air conditioning and then asked us if we wanted to see his pet bird. It was about 10:30pm and we just wanted to check in. Not surprisingly, he could not find our reservation made through A travel website. About 15 mins later a young woman came out from the back and said they found it and we were all set. Only to find out that after we checked out the next day, they charged my credit card. The room was nice and the decor was pretty cool and unique. It could be a great hotel with the right staff. To be fair, some of the staff we encountered seemed friendly and competent. There are obviously a few bad apples which can ruin whole experience.
