This hotel is located one block from the WWII museum. Walking distance from the art district. The cable car turns around in front of the hotel, so going to see the sites is easy. I would describe the hotel as industrial with cement walls. I understand it was the YMCA for many years.

This is a decent hotel not too far from the action of the French district. It's about a 15 to 20 minute walk from where most of the action is. It's a bit of a walk, but the hotel is better priced than those closer. The rooms are quiet. The breakfast is very basic and could be better. My only... More

We really liked our two nights stay in this hotel. The location is ok, a little walk away from Canal St and French Quarter. Our room was quiet, clean and spacious enough. Breakfast is included, even though not too rich. Parking is not included, so if you're travelling by car consider you'll spend 30$ a day for the parking lot.

This review is mainly for Ashley, the sweetest nicest most helpful receptionist, and Geoff the concierge who booked our amazing trips for us. The hotel was lovely and clean and the air con kept us cool in 86 degree heat outside. Good location adjacent to the magnificent WW11 museum. When we arrived we discovered to our horror that hotels.com had... More

This was our first stop in a 6-week tour around the States and we both loved New Orleans and the hotel due to its location and cleanliness. We didn't need to interact with the staff hugely but when we did they were polite and courteous. We loved wandering around the streets around the hotel and we found lots of little... More

This review is mainly for the staff...Ashley, Adam and the concierge have been outstanding! We were welcomed after a 2 hour delay train ride with smiling faces from Ashley & Adam.

The staff were friendly and helpful, the room was clean and funky, and the bed super super comfortable. This is not your typical chain hotel and we really appreciated that.

Horrible experience both because of Trip Advisor and Hotel Modern. We paid for our stay in full at the time of online booking. Yet we were charged again by Hotel Modern for our stay after we checked out without our knowing that they charged us. We called Hotel Modern and told them about it and the person we spoke to...

So, this place is okay. It is definitely for younger people who plan on partying. The place looks really modern like the name suggests. I was given a room right above their bar/club and we could hear the music and bass every night until around 2AM. It was very irrtiating The room itself was very small and the furniture was... More

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.
