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.

Great stay for the family

We went during the Chrismas week - had a very relaxing and stress-free stay. Staff was very accomodating and friendly - from the valet to the cleaning crew. Room was a little small but still comfortable. Unfortunately for us, most of our sightseeing on this trip was not within walking distance so we had to tip the valet to get our car so much that we lost count, however, on days that we actually hang out at the French Quarter, this was the perfect location. It was close by everything but far enough so that we can't hear (or smell) anything coming from Bourbon St. Would definitely go back - especially for their signature Monteleone Cocktail - that was awesome!

Beautiful hotel

This hotel is just beautiful inside and out. Clean and comfortable. The only reason for a 4 instead of a 5, is because the first room they gave us had no windows?? Really? A room without a window is like a coffin to my husband. Was moved, but no king rooms available, but had a window. Room was clean, but windows were covered in mold on the outside.

The restaurant is excellent for dinner and breakfast. Friendly staff. Clean rooms and very nice upscale decor everywhere. Parking is pricey about 40 so park across the street in public parking for about 25

Wonderful Hotel - Great Location

I have stayed at The Monteleone several times and this visit exceeded my previous visits. The rooms are looking wonderful, the public space is nicely refurbished, and the staff is very accommodating. I would recommend The Monteleone to anyone wishing to stay in the French Quarter.

An enjoyable trip

We wanted to get away a bit from the snow and New Orleans was just the place, and our hotel stay was certainly part of a great trip. There was nice music and singing once out the door with antique and souvenir shops and restaurants all around. The parking was a bit much we thought, considering that we wanted to tip the valets every time they got our car.
