Lovely Old World Hotel

This is a lovely and elegant hotel. The staff was really great. My only complaint is that the rooms were a bit smaller than we are used to and my Mom had trouble getting hot water in her handicapped accessible room. We had very nice breakfasts in Criollo, the restaurant in the hotel and enjoyed Pimm's Cups in the Carousel Bar. This is a great location too! Royal Street has wonderful shops.

Misrepresented

I carefully chose this location based upon description. The room was so small you could hardly get around the bed which was worn out. Hardly room for two in the bathroom. Just abysmal accommodations for a purported "4 star" Hotel. The stay proclaimed it was O's responsibility. We will see if I receive a response. Luckily we were able to get to a real 4 star nearby which was a very fine property indeed ; its staff understanding and gracious to a fault. This shabby hotel is as completely unremarkable as its carousel.

New Favorite

Have stayed at the Royal Sonesta on 3 previous stays in NOLA. Have also walked by the Monteleone and been curious. Actually booked it for cheaper than Sonesta (which had not been the case before). Totally met my expectations. Lived the location on Royal (I'm so over Bourbon Street). Also staff at all levels went above and beyond with attention and help. (not so the last time at Sonesta). This will be my new "must stay" in NOLA!

New Orleans Adventure

Location was great. The carousel bar was fun. The only negative was breakfast in the hotel restaurant. Average food compared to the great restaurants in the French Quarter.

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.

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!

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!

After dark, Bourbon Street is a place where people try too hard to stand out in the most obnoxious ways! See it and get out fast!

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.
