Renovating one of these historic New Orleans hotels is always a risky proposition. How do you update the facilities and retain the old world charm? The Monteleone has accomplished the task. The lobby sparkles and radiates an energy that no doubt stems in part by the legendary Carousel Bar which has been recently expanded. This world famous watering hole has been featured in writing by authors such as Ernest Hemingway and Roy Blount and has to rank as one of the world's top ten bars. The guest rooms are smallish but well-appointed with large marble and granite bathrooms. I was on the 10th floor with a view of French Quarter roof tops. The prima donna in me would have liked 100% cotton sheets and a magnifying mirror in the bath but these are minor quibbles. I can't find much fault with a hotel that celebrates New Orleans' literary past with suites named after Eudora Welty, Truman Capote and Tenessee Williams.
