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.

Best hotel in New Orleans!

Hotel Monteleone is truly grand...the staff was friendly and extremely helpful. Rooms were clean, luxurious and well decorated complete with a Keurig coffee maker and fridge. The location is excellent...just to the left is Canal St and a few blocks to the right is Brennans, Preservation Hall and the French Market. Don't hesitate...it's worth seeing this hotel in person!

Good times in NOLA

We really liked this location. it was an easy walk to a lot of the activities we wanted. The carousel bar was fun, though crowded. The biggest complaint we had was the size of the bathroom.

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!

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.

New Orleans Getaway

All in all outstanding. Will definitely return. Perfect location and French Quarter charm. With the exception of mattresses which were too soft and bouncy the room was great!

Great Hotel

Stayed here for Mardi Gras and had a great experience. The hotel lobby is beautiful and historic. We were there for Mardi Gras and saw several couple getting married in the lobby! The staff was very friendly and efficient. The rooms are comfortable. They could update the bedding but there was a nice flat screen TV and Keurig. Great location. I would recommend it!
