Throw Me Something Mister!

Welcome to the Hotel Modern! Thank you for choosing us to celebrate Mardi Gras 2019. Mardi Gras is an event that draws large crowds to the streets of New Orleans. Our goal is to provide the best possible environment for our guests to enjoy their stay..

In order to ensure the comfort and safety of our guests we will implement the following safety guidelines:

  1. Effective Friday, February 2nd through Wednesday, February 14th, access to the Hotel will be limited to registered guests only.
  2. At check-in, all guests will be issued wristbands equal to the number of registered occupants in the room. The maximum number of guests per room is 4. Only persons with a wristband will be permitted to enter the hotel. PLEASE KEEP YOUR WRISTBAND ON YOU AT ALL TIMES! If a wristband breaks or is damaged, it may be exchanged at the Front Desk with identification at no additional fee. The broken wristband must be brought to the Front Desk. If a wristband is lost, the cost of a new wristband is $35.00. This statement does not include wristbands for the Viewing Stands. Lost viewing Stand wristbands can not be replaced
  3. There is a 10-passenger limit on hotel elevators. Exceeding the recommended passenger limit increases the chances of elevator malfunction.
  4. For your valuables, safes are available in each guest room.
  5. Throwing any objects (including beads) in the hotel is not permitted.
  6. No Hurricane Drinks are allowed into the hotel.
  7. No kegs, large ice chests, or ladders are allowed in guestrooms

Getting to the Hotel:
