The Hotel Modern, New Orleans: 906 reviews and 3 photos
I have not stayed here. AAA gives it a three diamond rating, but it is not an AAA approved hotel.
It is right on the circle where the St. Charles streetcar line goes, and they advertise that they are "New Orleans' hottest and hippest new property, located in the Arts District, within easy walking distance to the Convention Center..." I am not sure that people will want to walk to some of these places at night and there is considerable disagreement about the "hippest" and "new".
There is a fairly stuff charge for parking - over $18/day plus tax. There are also other charges such as for a safe ($3) and for a phone ($5).
Unique Qualities: Among other things, the hotel advertises
# Adjacent to a full service gym with swimming pool, running track and basketball court
One of the reviews says "there is no paper delivery, no complimentary car/shuttle, no restaurant, no bar, no gym, no pool, no basketball court, no robes, no limo or driver. It appears that some of these things did once exist, but I was told by the staff that some are gone and some of them are only offered during peak times of the year."
