A time-honored New Orleans landmark, this French Quarter hotel has been owned and operated by five generations of the Monteleone family since 1886. It has appeared in movies, television and literary works. Keurig coffee makers, plush robes, marble and granite bathrooms, a heated rooftop pool, and a state-of-the-art fitness center are just some of the luxurious amenities in the Hotel Monteleone. Literary-themed suites pay homage to famous authors like Ernest Hemingway and Tennessee Williams, who visited and even wrote about the place. These well-appointed suites have plush furniture, parlors that can accommodate 15 to 70 people, and balconies with views of the Mississippi River and French Quarter.

Best hotel in New Orleans!

Hotel Monteleone is truly grand...the staff was friendly and extremely helpful. Rooms were clean, luxurious and well decorated complete with a Keurig coffee maker and fridge. The location is excellent...just to the left is Canal St and a few blocks to the right is Brennans, Preservation Hall and the French Market. Don't hesitate...it's worth seeing this hotel in person!

Amazing location

This is the Grande Dame of French quarter hotels. Beautifully located on Royal Street, the hotel has a lot of charm and a very friendly staff. It is in easy walking distance of all the French quarter attractions but it's far enough away from Bourbon Street to be quiet.

CONFERENCE LODGINGS

My family and I came to New Orleans for a conference. We stupidly thought that traveling from Seattle to New Orleans with a one-year old was a good idea. Suffice it to say we were so exhausted and in need of a good rest when we arrived to Hotel Monteleone at 8 in the morning. The staff was so amazing and helpful in getting us into a room 8 hours early. Thanks!

Old but special

Good: The hotel is in great location, Mr. B Bistro is right across the street, and has the best bbq shrimp. Nice decor. The room is pretty clean. Bad: The room is tiny, the bed sheet has a hole on it. When we got back to the hotel on the first day at 6pm, our room is still not cleaned. The sound proof is very very bad, I could hear the whole conversation of our next door neighbor, and they were not yelling. Overall, a good place to stay, but it is not a 5 star hotel.
