Not the way to run a hotel

Wanted to try a local hotel as a change of pace. Good location in the French Quarters. However, they lost a/c and hot water the first night. Then things went down hill from there. Room was never cleaned the second day. Wound up having to move to a different hotel when they could not give me assurance that the problem would be fixed any time soon. I understand that sometimes unavoidable problems occur but the lack of communication and then the discourteous follow up by the staff was not acceptable. I would highly discourage others from giving business to such an establishment unless they changed their ways.

Excellent facilities and location. Staf were helpful and friendly. Beds left a bit to be desired as they were like sleeping on jello. All in all a good experience.

Great location

..and this is the biggest plus. However, when we came the receptionist told us that the room was not ready and we can check in no early as at 5.00 pm. So we left our baggages in the waiting room and went to see the city. We came back at 4.30 and asked for any room that we got it. The room was clean but cleaning department does not do their job. On the second day we had to call them at 5.00 pm to come down and clean the room. On the third day they did not show up at all. The Carousel Bar downstairs is nice place to grab a drink before you go somewhere else. Nevertheless, drinks are made with very little alcohol but in a good price. There is no swimming pool indoor so when is colder you cannot use it. Overall it is average standard hotel. I would not stay there again.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Skip Cafe Du Monde. The coffee is terrible as their beginets which are dry and without taste. The best beginets you can find in Cafe Beignet. They are huge, hot and beyond delicious. They also have decent coffee.

Hotel Monteleone

This hotel is situated perfectly: just a couple of blocks from Bourbon St and Canal, and only a few blocks from the French Quarter - very walkable even in the rain. The staff was very welcoming. I will definitely stay again.

I know this is low-brow considering the hotel, but Krystals (fast food) on Bourbon St right at Canal is the bomb. Their sliders' taste like White Castle and the breakfast is very good. Their hot sauce is actually hot.

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!
