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. Literary-themed suites pay homage to famous authors like Ernest Hemingway and Tennessee Williams, who visited and even wrote about the place.

Monteleone

Lovely hotel...a bit slammed with tourists making it impossible for staff to go above and beyond...also seemed understaffed. So it goes. It's NOLA.

Misrepresented

I carefully chose this location based upon description. The room was so small you could hardly get around the bed which was worn out. Hardly room for two in the bathroom. Just abysmal accommodations for a purported "4 star" Hotel. The stay proclaimed it was O's responsibility. We will see if I receive a response. Luckily we were able to get to a real 4 star nearby which was a very fine property indeed ; its staff understanding and gracious to a fault. This shabby hotel is as completely unremarkable as its carousel.

New Favorite

Have stayed at the Royal Sonesta on 3 previous stays in NOLA. Have also walked by the Monteleone and been curious. Actually booked it for cheaper than Sonesta (which had not been the case before). Totally met my expectations. Lived the location on Royal (I'm so over Bourbon Street). Also staff at all levels went above and beyond with attention and help. (not so the last time at Sonesta). This will be my new "must stay" in NOLA!

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.

Very nice luxury hotel, need to keep rooms fixed

This hotel offered about what I expected in a fancy old luxury hotel. The staff were quite helpful, checking me in early and putting me in a nice room overlooking the city. The room was nice and modern, but had a few maintenance issues, including an intermittent lamp switch and a toilet seat that was loose. It's a bit annoying to deal with these things on a short visit. The staff were excellent and I was happy with the service, including excellent room service. I would probably stay here again.

Hotel Monteleone

In New Orleans for business. The Monteleone is an excellent hotel and the service is tops. Regular rooms are comfortable but smallish. The restaurant and some of the meeting areas were being renovated at the time of the stay. The hotel provided a complimentary continental breakfast to make up for the closed restaurant. The continental breakfast was excellent but the room was small and the wait line became quite long after 8am.

Awesome Experience

This is a classic New Orleans Hotel. There is construction going on but it effects the outside sidewalk more then inside the hotel. The staff was very efficient except for my key which didn't work the first time. The complementary enhanced continental breakfast was very elegant with fresh linens at the table - it was so popular I needed to wait 5 minutes to get seated. Bottom line I would definately stay again with the nice price of under $119.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Nola is in my opinion the best of Emeril Lagasse's restaurants and is three blocks from the hotel. It is well worth the walk which you will need to burn off the extra caloric intake of the awesome meal.
