Hotel Modern

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

Cameron Todd

A large art-deco building overlooks Lee Circle (recently emptied of its General Lee monument), a traffic circle that leads you from the CBD into the Warehouse District. Digs aren't quite "modern," but have sparse style and comfortable beds.

YOU SHOULD KNOW Take caution walking around this area late at night.

room

Rooms vary in size, but have large, comfortable beds. Rooms include work desks, televisions, and small libraries for guests' enjoyment.

bathroom

Small, renovated bathrooms have showers or bathtub shower combinations, and fresh-smelling bath products.

lobby

A sleek, white-walled lobby resembles a gallery space. Don't hesitate to approach the friendly concierge.

gym

A 24-hour fitness room has state-of-the-art cardio machines.

dining

The hotel lost its restaurant during a change of ownership, but still serves a light continental breakfast (yogurt, fruit, cereal) in the breakfast room.

drinking

The hotel recently changed ownership, and the swanky cocktail bar, Belloq, has sadly shut down, but good changes and renovations are on their way.

LOCATION

Getting Around

Guests can self-park for $26/night, a discount to the usual hotel valet price elsewhere in the neighborhood. It's a 2-minute walk to catch the St. Charles streetcar going Uptown or toward the French Quarter.

Restaurants

La Boca (7-minute walk) is a romantic spot for Argentine steak specials and Malbec. You'll hear Cochon Restaurant (9-minute walk) recommended again and again for its nouveau takes on Southern and French pork preparations.

Bars

The Rusty Nail (10-minute walk) is local spot with lots of party vibes and cheap beers on tap. Visit New Orleans' smallest brewery, Courtyard Brewery (9-minute walk), for quality beers and courtyard food trucks.

WHY WE LIKE IT

It's a longer walk to Canal Street, but this location lands you close to some of the best museums in the city, choice restaurants and a few lively Warehouse district music venues. The area, and hotel in general, are quiet at night and beds are comfy.
