Not the greatest location. badly laid out rooms.

Posted Sep 20, 2014
The layout makes the rooms very small. Tiny little windows makes it feel like a prison cell. The operation feels like they're new to running a hotel. Front desk is just a small table in a hallway. Staff was very nice though so I would rate them higher than the room. The location is no where near anything fun.

super friendly and helpful staff

Posted Sep 17, 2014
Pros: staff is no. 1, easy going, felt like family
Location: great museums and restaurants just around the corner. easy to catch trolley and couple corner stores to buy beer.
hotel was clean and friendly, staff is excellent, love the accents. a little hike to French district but trolley stops right in front of hotel. room was a little small and awkward to move around but cozy. we did not go to the pool but were told that it's around the corner in a nice courtyard.

It was awesome. They gave me an free upgrade for my birthday. Then there was a small mix up and I received another upgrade. They were very nice and amazing people.

I expected better based on the ahead of stay call

Posted Aug 19, 2014
Pros: The location was great. The desk staff/concierge was knowledgeable and courteous.
Cons: Clean the room daily and replenish supplies.
Location: World War II museum; art museum. The trolley stops close by to take you where you want to go.
I was delighted to get a call from the hotel ahead of my stay. I was in New Orleans last year and loved the hotel I stayed at then. I was expecting just as great this year. I asked to be placed away from the elevator and for a good view. The person I spoke with was so pleasant and accommodated our early check in. But the room was right off the elevator and if I wanted a view I would have to stand on the desk. We did not spend much time in the room but still I was told one thing and delivered something different. The hotel maid was not much for cleaning the room. Empty water goblets collected up in the room during our stay. I had to ask for more shower gel. We just made it through the first day with the amount of toilet paper supplied. Debris on the floor was not removed. Maybe the vacuum doesn't work? On another positive note, our questions about ideas for different things to do were well answered and the suggestions were great. The hotel desk staff was pleasant and greeted us daily.

Very Surprised!

Posted Aug 4, 2014
Pros: Everything!
We needed to book a room at the last minute and this was the only hotel available. I was a bit leery by the pictures and the name of the hotel especially, since everywhere else was booked. However, I'm so glad we stayed here. In walking distance to many restaurants and bars...a short cab ride to the French Quarter. Very clean and the staff couldn't do enough for us.

Short ways to downtown and quarter. Bed was really comfortable and staff was very friendly with me and other guests I saw them interact with.

Nice hotel. Easy access to downtown New Orleans

Overall my stay at The Hotel Modern was good. The only two things I didn't like was the little closet space, and no iron & ironing board was in the room.

We booked our hotel room through Expedia and the representative on the phone told us that the hotel accepts pets, but didn't not tell us that for each dog will have to pay an additional $15 fee/night. So, we assumed the pet fee was included in the room. We thought we got a really good deal for a decent hotel ($67/night), but we ended up paying $100 for one night, including the pet fees ($30 extra for what we were originally paid). The breakfast was pretty good. Lots of choices and fresh fruits. The late night check in was pretty lengthy. We are not sure why, considering that we already had our reservation. The bed was very comfortable, but the bathroom walls (tile in the shower) were very dirty. Overall, decent stay, but if you have pets, be prepared to pay an additional $15/night for each pet.
