Great Location, no worries!

The location of the Hotel Montelone was great! Easy access to Bourbon St and all other surrounding French Quarter streets. You would need to take a bus to the Garden District or Business District, which is fairly easy. Rooms were small, but doable: standard room applies. We were able to walk to the French Market and #1 Cemetary. We also ventured to the Zoo, the bus was right around the corner on Canal St. Take the Magazine Bus #11. We had no problems with the reservations, was a great hassle free vacation. Would recommend highly staying at the Hotel. Enjoy!

Good/Bad Location

Before staying here, you really need to think about what you want out of your trip to New Orleans. If you are a night owl with plans to party all night on Bourbon Street, this is the hotel for you. The locaton is in the middle of everything with easy access to all that you will want in the French Quarter. If you want to sleep and relax, you may want to think about a different location further from Bourbon Street. The hotel staff was very friendly and the amenities of the hotel are great. The Carousel bar is a must with great bartenders and cocktails. The downside is that we stayed on the sixth floor in a room that faces Royal Street, which is one block from Bourbon. There was constant noise until nearly 5:00 every morning. This included a marching band playing "When the Saints Go Marching in" at 3:00 one morning. The staff was very accomodating about moving us to a quieter room, but be warned if staying here to ask for a high floor in the interior if you plan to sleep. The rooms were clean and nicely furnished, but a little on the small side. All in all, a decent stay, but may think about a different location if visiting New Orleans again.

Two Gals Fun Weekend in the Big Easy!!!

My gal pal and I took the city by storm, hitting all the classy locales and partaking of some uber-fun shopping! Monteleone was home-base, perfectly situated in the middle of everything and every place we needed to be! And the staff was marvelously accommodating! The lounge and carousel bar were the most fun after dinner, and the Sunday brunch in the restaurant was exquisite and heavenly! We'll stay here again and again!

Nice Little Getaway!

I visited this hotel in April 2014. The hotel location was excellent...everything that you would want to see and do in the French Quarter was in walking distance. The hotel itself was clean and pleasant. The staff was friendly. The room was small...even for one person. Took a while to figure out that the armoire doors slid back so that more space was provided between it and the end of the bed. ATE WELL!! No problems. Would def stay at the Monteleone again!

French Quarter Elegance

The hotel staff was extremely friendly and willing to help. The hotel was located close to everything yet the room was very quiet. We have stayed at this hotel, when available, for the past ten years and have never had a bad experience.

Perfect location!

This is a beautiful hotel. The concierge' is very helpful in scheduling sight seeing events with no need of worry if the weather turns bad and you need to cancel. This hotel is only one street off of Bourbon Street but very different. It is safe and clean. My less than perfect rating had to do with the maid service. The room was not always cleaned until almost evening #5pm upon after making the request#, they didn't always leave coffee, we had to request toilet paper - those types of things. Everything else about the hotel is terrific. The doormen are helpful in getting a cab immediately.

Use the concierge' to make any sightseeing. If the weather turns bad there is no charge to cancel. They even got us a discount on one of the tours. They are great with directions and information on what to do.

Amazing hotel

Hotel Monteleone was amazing. The location was perfect. We were able to walk everywhere. It is located on Royal Street which had so many wonderful places to shop. The staff was always courteous and helpful. The room was very clean and the bed extremely comfortable. We ate in the hotel restaurant, Cirollo, for brunch a number of times. The service was great. The Carousel Bar was so cool, as well as the roof top pool. Don't miss out on this wonderful hotel. I would recommend this hotel to everyone.

Exceed Expectations in Almost Every Way

Beautiful lobby, spotless rooms, incredibly friendly staff, great location. My only minor compliant is lack of counter space in the bathroom. I would go out of my way to stay here every time I travel to NOLA. It's that good!
