Just stayed there, for 4 nights for a conference. Had some issues, don't think I would recommend this place, there are much nicer hotels in the area, I know because some of my fellow conference attendees stayed elsewhere. This hotel doesn't offer much and doesn't have great service. Key cards didn't work the second night, and even after repeatedly being...

Second stay - nice rooms, attentive staff, and easy location to work from for trade shows, as long as weather cooperates! Otherwise, you are a very quick cab to convention center and the trolley is right out the front door for public trans for $1.25

There were other hotels available for the conference that I was in town for, but I'm thrilled that I chose to stay at the Hotel Modern. It had everything: price, location, amenities. And when I visited colleagues at other hotels, the difference in the attentiveness, friendliness, and effort of the staff was very obvious. I wouldn't stay anywhere else on...

Weird hotel. More like a hostel. Cheap, particle-board, dormitory furniture. VERY small room - like a cruise cabin. Clock/radio unplugged. Lamps not working. TV screen is small with limited digital channels. No ironing board or iron. No box spring. Did have a DORM fridge - of course. There's a wall safe in the closet - but no light to read...

I did not book this hotel. I was relocated here due to an overbooking with the original hotel I had booked with.

Stayed here for Halloween 2015 and it's a lovely hotel. The bar downstairs does a great brunch and the staff are all really helpful. The rooms are a little on the small side, but then if you're in New Orleans and spending loads of time in your room, you're doing it all wrong!

Staying in Arts District / Warehouse District

Neighbourhood Profile
Arts District / Warehouse District
Once a thriving industrial zone, today this district is home to a buzzing arts scene with an amazing assortment of galleries, boutiques, and studios having moved in and set up shop throughout the disused warehouses for which the area is so well known. Much of the art you'll come across here is local in scope, ownership and inspiration. However, among the many old brick warehouses are modern structures of steel and glass housing large-scale cultural institutions of national prominence such as the National World War II Museum, the Contemporary Arts Center, and the Ogden Museum of Southern Art. Just as eye catching as what’s on view inside the galleries and museums is the chance to see your ship come in at the Julia Street Cruise Terminal, which serves as a wistful reminder of the city’s historic maritime prominence.
