The trendy Hotel Modern is a quirky upper-middle-range boutique property with eclectic decor and a boho-meets-industrial-chic vibe. An on-site farm-to-table restaurant serves modern Southern fare and there's also a hip and atmospheric cocktail bar with crimson walls and plush seating. The 135 rooms are fairly bare and simply furnished, but clean, with modern amenities that include flat-screen TVs, Keurig coffeemakers, iPod docks, free Wi-Fi, and C.O. Bigelow products in the bathrooms. Situated on a large roundabout, the property neighbors several museums and is just a few steps away from one of the streetcars that reaches the French Quarter in about 20 minutes. Travelers seeking something of a similar character, but closer to the French Quarter, might want to consider the Royal Street Inn, another hipster hangout with a bar.
