Hotel Modern Review

One of the most idiosyncratic and genuinely charming hotels in the city, the chic Hotel Modern on Lee Circle delivers a bit of attitude along with its eclectic selection of rooms. You won't find a check-in desk here: instead, you're greeted by Scarlet the macaw and given a drink as you're welcomed into an art-filled, salon-like space. The slightly curved building delivers rooms of all shapes and sizes, from postage stamp to spacious, but all are comfortable and done up in an mix of modern and antiques. A stay here means you don't have to leave to experience a party: its cocktail bar hosts live burlesque performances and international music, and the excellent restaurant serves its Vietnamese-French dishes in an outdoor courtyard.
