Couldn't be better for large hotel

A large hotel always lacks the quaintness of a boutique property, but this hotel could not be more... See full review

Beautiful French Quarter Hotel!

My boyfriend and I stayed at Hotel Monteleone for one night prior to getting on a cruise and it doesn't get any better. The hotel is absolutely beautiful and charming. Our room was so warm and inviting and this hotel does all the little extras to make it comfortable. Also, we loved the Carousel Bar in the lobby. Will definitely stay here again if in New Orleans!

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!

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.

Dinner at Dickie Brennan's steakhouse (half a block away) and Sunday jazz brunch at Mr. B's (across the street) were both wonderful and worth the price!

Historic hotel in a great location

We loved this historic hotel, it was in a fantastic location and the staff was amazing. The rooms were a bit small but would expect so from an older hotel. The hotel was in great shape (I believe it was recently renovated), clean and charming. The one downside is that the walls are very thin so if you have loud neighbors that can be disruptive. Overall I would recommend and would stay at the Hotel Monteleone on my next visit to New Orleans!

Exceed Expectations in Almost Every Way

Beautiful lobby, spotless rooms, incredibly friendly staff, great location. My only minor compliant is lack of counter space in the bathroom. I would go out of my way to stay here every time I travel to NOLA. It's that good!

Most reliably excellent hotel in New Orleans

This is a family owned luxury property right in the heart of the French Quarter (but far enough away from Bourbon Street not to be by it. It's my first hotel choice when I stay in New Orleans. Unlike many corporate chains that claim luxury status this one earns it. Very comfortable and restful place to stay.

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.
