Hotel Modern

936 St. Charles Ave., New Orleans, Louisiana, 70130, USA

One of the most idiosyncratic and charming hotels in the city delivers a bit of attitude along with its eclectic selection of rooms of all shapes and sizes, from postage-stamp to spacious. Accommodations are all comfortable, done up in a mix of modern furniture and antiques. You won't find a traditional check-in desk here. Instead, you're greeted by Scarlet the parrot, and given a drink as you're welcomed into an art-filled, salonlike space. A stay in the slightly curved building, a former YMCA, means you don't have far to look to find the party: the cocktail bar, Bellocq, is operated by the owners of the renowned New Orleans bar Cure, and the restaurant, Tivoli & Lee, serves creative modern Southern food.
