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.

Amazing location

This is the Grande Dame of French quarter hotels. Beautifully located on Royal Street, the hotel has a lot of charm and a very friendly staff. It is in easy walking distance of all the French quarter attractions but it's far enough away from Bourbon Street to be quiet.

Nice Little Getaway!

I visited this hotel in April 2014. The hotel location was excellent...everything that you would want to see and do in the French Quarter was in walking distance. The hotel itself was clean and pleasant. The staff was friendly. The room was small...even for one person. Took a while to figure out that the armoire doors slid back so that more space was provided between it and the end of the bed. ATE WELL!! No problems. Would def stay at the Monteleone again!

After dark, Bourbon Street is a place where people try too hard to stand out in the most obnoxious ways! See it and get out fast!

Great hotel and location

The hotel was great: very well-kept for a historic property, clean, friendly. The location is very central for walking to different parts of the city. The gym is not huge but I never had to wait and the rooftop location offers great views.

Very enjoyable stay

Travelled to meet with friends. Didn't stay in hotel much, but it was wonderful. Had this been a trip involving more time in the room, the room would have been found to be small in size.

High class & perfect location

All staff professional and friendly. Beautiful hotel with history. Not a chain, which made it all the more special. I will always return to Hotel Monteleone!

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

New Orleans can be best appreciated when there is not a festival. Hotels will be less expensive;lines shorter at restaurants, etc. It is wild enough on any given weekend, or weekday for that matter!

Great Location

The location of the hotel is unbeatable. There were endless dining choices all within a few blocks. The hotel was one block from Bourbon St. and a short walk (4 or 5 blocks) to Jackson Square, the river and Harrah's Casino. The room was an interior room with no windows and was very quiet at night. I have stayed in other hotels nearby and could hear the noise from Bourbon St. even though I was on the 12th floor and not directly on Bourbon St.

Great package!

One of the top hotels in an ideal location at a very reasonable price. The service was very good! My only complaint was that the lobby was freezing, but I think they crank the AC to enhance the luxury feel.
