These trendy hotels offer new options for city visitors
Hotel Modern New Orleans
This 135-room hotel located on Lee Circle in the city’s Warehouse Arts District was converted from a YMCA into a hotel years ago, and recently underwent a renovation and name change. Now, the hotel offers sleek and hip rooms, with a combination of unique antiques and modern technology. A retro lounge area named Bellocq’s features live music, a burlesque show, and original cocktail creations. The hotel’s restaurant, Tamarind, is run by New Orleans chef Dominique Macquet. For an easy transportation option, take the St. Charles streetcar, which picks up a block away from the hotel.
