“Wonderful Hotel, Great Location”
Reviewed 26 April 2012

My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Monteleone for our anniversary trip in October of 2011. It was a bit of a splurge, as there are other hotels in the French Quarter that are cheaper, but this was worth it. The lobby is gorgeously decorated and massive. The service at the hotel was also great. We checked in on a Saturday and when we arrived at noon, they weren't ready for us, but they gladly held our bags and called a cell phone when the room was available. The room was not large by American standards, but it was comfortable and had plenty of space for luggage, had all the ameneties that anyone would need like hair dryer, nice clean bathroom, storage space, iron, etc. The rooftop pool was also fantastic. It was perfect for lounging, being in the water on a hot afternoon, and they also have a bar that serves food and drinks. The location of the hotel is wonderful, right in the heart of the French Quarter and within walking distance of many fantastic restaurants, attractions and the St. Charles streetcar.

Admittedly, I am a New Orleans native, and this has always been the go-to hotel for locals in the Quarter.

That said, I highly recommend it, for every possible reason.

Starting with the staff .. The staff here is very friendly, helpful, and attentive. If you're a regular, they certainly remember you. When asked if I was staying for a special occasion, and mentioned I was coming home after a long time to celebrate a birthday, they upgraded me to a jr. suite, and added complimentary champagne, choc-covered strawberries, and a handwritten note. Class!

Location: Perfect location, close to all Quarter destinations without being in the thick of the noise and nuisance. It is also on Royal St., the "gem" of the Quarter streets.

Look: The hotel itself is beautiful. It is old world style, with a breathtaking lobby, especially at Christmas. Yes the rooms are smaller than your usual chain hotels, but please keep in mind this hotel has been in operation since the 1800s ... it's history. It's elegance. The rooms are spotlessly clean, decorated beautifully, and the beds are very comfortable.

Lagniappe: The Carousel Bar. Must be experienced to be believed. One can spend an entire evening, slowly moving around the room, and people watching, while sipping incredible drinks. Let's be honest. Can Faulkner and Tennessee Williams *really* be wrong?

If you can, don't miss the experience of the Hotel Monteleone!

Room Tip: You can see the Quarter from pretty much anywhere in the hotel ... you don't necessary need a &q...

I spent 4 days here with my family during Spring Break. The hotel is elegant and timeless. Its proximity to excellent restaurants and major French Quater attractions make doubly attractive. We took breakfast at the hotel each morning. The food and service cannot be beat. Our children loved the rooftop pool. The room, while a little small, was clean and comfortable.

I just returned from my yearly trip to New Orleans and The French Quarter Festival. I always stay at The Hotel Monteleone and have done so for many years. The Carousel Bar has been enlarged to include entertainment on the Monteleone Stage; very nice. Currently, the restaurants are closed for renovation but they still provide a buffet breakfast for those who are interested and room service 24/7 with good service and food. I request the larger of the preferred double rooms for myself and find the room is very accomodating and the bathroom is large with bath and granite tiles; my room is quiet and always very clean. The hotel itself is beautiful in architecture and perfectly located in the quarter; I highly recommend a stay. Laissez les bons temps rouler! Bon Jour

Room Tip: Larger of the preferred double rooms have a tendency to be on the higher floors and have a view of t...
