Perfect Staycation!

We got a great deal on the room as New Orleans is very affordable in the summer - it was perfect for our staycation! The location can't be beat, quiet enough off Bourbon Street, but still close to everything you'll need in the French Quarter. The room we had was a bit small, but overall can't complain. Also, we loved the rooftop pool and the Carousel Bar! Will definitely recommend this hotel to friends and family that will be visiting if they want to stay in the Quarter.

Great Location

This is a great location for all the NOLA attractions in the French Quarter. However, when we arrived to check in their computer system was down, so we could not check in. They gave us comps for drinks at the bar and one day of valet parking. However, it took three hours to check-in, which was very frustrating. Overall hotel is nice.

Nice Place, GREAT Location!

The hotel was great. The Bar was always hopping and the pool area was nice as well. Our biggest complaint is that the walls were VERY thin and we heard EVERYTHING in the neighboring rooms at all hours of the day.

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.

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.

really good location

I have stayed at this hotel several times. The location is good, the hotel is quite grand, and the staff is always courteous and knowledgable. I only have one real complaint. The room does not cool enough even with the thermostat adjusted to the coldest setting. Not terribly uncomfortable, but a bit irritating. Other than that small gripe, this is a good place to stay if you want to be in the French Quarter, but not deep into the French Quarter. Very very good restaurants within 1-3 blocks.

Excellent for Just the 2 of Us

The two of us booked this hotel for a weekend by ourselves. The location couldn't have been better. We were able to walk to everything, only using cabs for the airport. The room was small, but wonderfully decorated and clean. The bed was one of the most comfortable hotel beds I've slept on. The staff was very helpful and happy to help, even when we asked a simple question to what turned out to be the "VIP" (rather than the "regular") concierge. We definitely would stay at this hotel again.
