Great Hotel For A Romantic Night

We normally go to a much cheaper hotel when we go to Nola, but i decided to make it a special trip and spend the extra money. Worth every penny. $129 @ the Monteleone=great deal. Carousel bar was fun. They even let us check into our room earlier than the scheduled time.

If you want to hang at a locals bar, go to the Erin Rose & the Boondock Saint. Friendly people. Both are cheap dive bars but with a lot of charector.

Wonderful Hotel

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel, we were treated like royalty. The hotel was clean,and the saff were friendly. We were visiting for the Essence Music Festival for 3 days and the best part was returning back to the hotel to their soft queen bed. I would definitly stay at this hotel again and recommend it to my family & friends.

Very centrally located

Great deal with extremely helpful staff very centrally located in French Quarter. Rooms were very nice and rooms with view give an awesome one. Bathroom was very nicely appointed with lots of counter room. Shower was just right. Plenty of space to hang clothes.

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.

Great location & comfortable rooms

This was my first visit to New Orleans. Hotel Monteleone is in a great location in French Quarter. Just one block from Bourbon Street and within walking distance to Jackson Square and French Market. Many wonderful restaurants are located all around. The staff was excellent and we had a wonderful stay. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting New Orleans.

Elegance and Style

We planned this trip prior to the Saints going to the Super Bowl. Once we knew what the week-end entailed, we were highly concerned about the hotel's service, noise, and overall customer service. However, the Monteleone was wonderful. Yes, there was noise, and lots and lots of people, with it being Super Bowl week-end, but the entire staff of the hotel remained in great spirits. No one was rude, and everyone accommodated as much as was possible. Even in the Carousel lounge, that was filled beyond capacity, all spirits were high and attitudes were positive by te staff. The hotel remained clean and everything was perfect, even if we did not attend for the sole purpose to support the Saints. It was a great week-end, amongst the chaos, thanks to the great attitudes of the Monteleone.

Perfect Location-Awsome bed and shower

Hotel Montelone is the best location in the French Quarter. It is close to all the hot spots of the Quarter such as shoping,fine dining and the best clubs on Burbon Street. The Montelone room are small but cozy. The bed is very comfortable and the shower is AWSOME. The Hotel also has a nice pool on the roof and a state of the art fitness room with great views of the river and city. Hotel Staff is very friendly and has top notch service from the bell hops, doorman and Concereige'. Simply the best Hotel in New Orleans.

Classy New Orleans hotel

The staff were all very pleasant and helpful. Our room wasn't ready and they checked us in and took a cellphone number. They called that it was ready within 30 mins. Everything about our stay was equally smooth.
