              Staff very knowledgeable and friendly. Location to downtown and convention center excellent. Room clean and comfortable.

              Hotel is undergoing major renovation, so there was much banging and inconvenience during the day. May have taken "minimalist" too far in the rooms, as we did not have amenities one expects from a hotel: a phone, sufficient hangers (asked for twice and never got more), bedside clock, shampoo in bath after first day, pictures on the walls, etc.

              Location was okay, room was clean.

              The hotel was under major renovations at the time of our stay but failed to mention that until we arrived to check in. The renovations included elevators that weren't operating, broken ice machines, waking up to hammering sounds before 7am. The hotel should not have taken reservations during this period, and we definitely wouldn't have stayed at the hotel if we had known it was such a messy time to stay there. That being said, the location, value and cleanliness would probably be okay some other time when things weren't so chaotic for the property. I'd also agree with some reviews I read regarding the air conditioning unit being excessively noisy. I preferred to turn it off each night rather than wake up multiple times to the startling banging sounds.

              Good location. Staff was great. Room was very clean. The bathroom is small but neat. The decor is unique. Only 1 elevator worked but it didnt slow us down. Overall I would stay here again, especially if you come for a girls weekend and you dont plan on being in the room very much.

              everything, loved it. Only stayed one night. The room was nice and clean. Staff were helpful and nice.

              we could hear EVERYTHING that the neighbor said or did. Even when they went to the bathroom or walked around in their room. Very thin walls.

              The position was ok and the French Quarter was easily reachable by few tram stations. It was quiet and it was possible to make coffe and tea in the room (an "On the Run" shop was next to the hotel).

              We had to pay for parking and the staff didn't suggest us the "smart" way: Leave the car in street in the night next to the parking lot (where cameras are) and pay only for the day time in the parking lot!

              Good location to Canal st. Conveinence to wwii museum. Also, the clerk at the front desk recommended a restaurant for lunch on Sat. It was named Surrey's ( I think). It was a fabulous place & we wish we could have personally thanked her for the recommendation.

              Rooms small but functional.

              The hotel reminded me of a boutique hotel. The style and interior design was simplistice yet chic. The bed in the room was comfortable. The staff was efficient and helpful especially the overnight front desk staff. I liked the proximity of the hotel to the trolley. This made it easy to get around.

              The hotel was supposedly under renovation so the bar was not open. I was there for a music festival so that would have been nice to be able to sit at the bar and socialize with other hotel guests. During my stay, one of the elevators was out of service and there did not appear to be any attempt to fix it. The shower curtain was too short for the shower so there was always an excess amount of water on the bathroom floor. Parking for the hotel is terrible.

              The Modern, was perfectly situated, with the street car running straight past the hotel, taking you downtown to Bourbon Street. Fantastic

              I loved the old homestyle atmosphere, which made you feel welcome. an overall very comfortable stay.

              Excellent location.

              In its quest to be a trendy, boutique location for travelers, Hotel Modern lets service, attention to detail, and comfort fall by the wayside.

              Very friendly staff and conveniently located.

              I was charged the wrong amount for the stay. Receipt had $307 but $407 was charged to my card.

              The hotel was perfect fit for me and my wife. We were there at Mardi Gras. It was on the quiet side of town but right on the parade routes and a short walk to many attractions including the "French quarter". I would recommend The Hotel Modern to anyone.
