Fantastic hotel in a great location in New Orleans. On Royal st so removed from the crazy Bourbon St but only one street away. Rebuilt in the 1950's it has ambience from much earlier. The carousel bar is probably unique and well worth a go serving a wide range of drinks and food with bar snacks for free. About 15 minutes for a complete rotation but if you go there at a busy time expect to wait for a seat at the bar. Staff are sensational...very customer focussed. Rooms are, to be expected, older but still clean and perfectly functional. Didn't try their restaurant but in room dining was not so good on several occasions so may best be left alone. Lots of food outlets within a very short walk with Daisy Dukes (try the alligator sausage and gumbo) and Willies chicken (crisp chicken wings are awesome) being standouts for cheap eats (try the Hurricane dacquiri at the latter if you dare). Pool deck on the roof is very nice and while quiet when I visited I expect it could be lively when the bar was open. Nice sunset views over the Big Easy. Would stay again.

I really enjoyed this hotel. It was classic but clean and nicely upkept. The service was great and the location was perfect. Close to all the action, and close to the trolley stop as well. Its supposed to be haunted too but unfortunately I didnt encounter any ghosts.

Stayed: September 2017

In the heart of the French Quarter the Hotel Monteleone has been operated by five generations of family from 1886 when it opened with 64 guest rooms to the present 600. Some guests and employees have reported sightings of ghostly apparitions and mishaps did not deter us but only added to the history and mystic of this grand dwelling. On entering you notice the decorative chandeliers which lead to the front desk where the check in was friendly and efficient. Upon learning it was a special anniversary we were given a higher floor with a view of the river and two complimentary drinks at the Carousel bar. The room was small but cozy. Tastefully decorated with subdued striped wallpaper, traditional furniture and a tiled bathroom. The bed and pillows gave the impression you were sleeping on a cloud. The service employees were all friendly and courteous throughout our stay. Hospitality is personified. There is the revolving Carousel bar and lounge with a variety of southern cocktails and fine dining at the Criollo restaurant (review to follow). After a day of touring and shopping you can relax and have a drink at the rooftop pool. The advantage of staying here you are only steps away from numerous shops and restaurants that abound in the French Quarter. The grande dame abounds with history.

Wonderful place to stay in the heart of the action. Near French Quarter but very quiet place to sleep away from the noise. Very comfortable. Great Bar with Live Music of top quality. Staff is very helpful. Location can't be beat.

From the moment you pull up to the curb at the Hotel Monteleone, everyone is so hospitable. The staff is very professional and pleasant and truly seem to enjoy their jobs. They are an asset to the hotel. The ambiance is wonderful, and the hotel is beautiful. The rooms and amenities were great as well. We were there for business, but it felt like a vacation! We will definitely be back!
