The Hotel Modern New Orleans has an immediately welcoming feel; with no check-in desk, guests are greeted with complimentary drinks in the lobby lounge and escorted to their rooms just as if they were staying at a friend’s guesthouse. The 135 comfortable rooms were designed in-house with a modern eclectic aesthetic that mirrors the city’s juxtaposition of Old World charm with New World diversity.

Each room features a spacious layout and selection of furniture to fit the needs of busy travelers, yet also has a distinct style with decorative antiques throughout. The hotel goes beyond the basics to offer an array of cultural amenities such as thoughtfully curated books in every room as well as burlesque shows and a music series with international artists in the cocktail lounge, Bellocq. Named for photographer E.J. Bellocq, who secretly photographed the madams of pre-prohibition New Orleans, Bellocq will feature a menu of original cocktail creations from Cure founders Neal Bodenheimer, Kirk Estopinal and Matthew Kohnke that evoke the city’s past.

Acclaimed New Orleans chef Dominique Macquet (Dominique’s on Magazine) along with his chef de cuisine Quan Tran, will open Tamarind at The Hotel Modern New Orleans. The restaurant is named after the exotic tropical fruit Macquet enjoyed as a child growing up in Mauritius and will explore Vietnamese cuisine from the perspective of nearly a century of French colonial presence in Vietnam, lasting from 1858 until the battle of Dien Bien Phu in 1954. Open for lunch and dinner (as well as breakfast for hotel guests), Tamarind features a 70-seat dining room with an outdoor courtyard and a 40-seat private dining room.
