4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Great experience. location is the best possible in city, just off Canal St in Quarter!

Had an amazing stay! Clean though out with friendly helpful staff. Gorgeous in every way!

Room was small, but to be expected in that area of the French Quarter. I am a large person and found it difficult to maneuver in the bathroom. I felt like I need to do yoga poses to use the toilet. Other than that, our stay was great. Do expect to be charged for everything. You get two free bottles of water the first night, but are charged for any you use afterwards.

Great weekend at hotel montelone. The beds are comfy, the rooms are quiet, friendly staff, air conditioner works great, but watch out for the slippery floors in the bathroom.

The rooms were a little small, however, the quality of the facility and staff exceeded my expectations!

I had a quick stay in New Orleans and the staff was amazing, hotel is gorgeous, room was clean and good size, doorman was attentive, waitress Deanna at Criola was friendly and fun, location is perfect. Can't say enough about it. really enjoyed my stay. Highly recommend.

Very Beautiful Hotel!! Close to all the major landmarks in the French Quarter.

Beautiful historic hotel. Well decorated and good entrance from the busy Quarter streets. Wonderful room and spacious bathroom.

We stayed here for the second time (our first was ten years ago), this time with our children. The room was clean, the shower was nice, and the location is perfect. We parked our car in the garage and walked everywhere we wanted to go; didn't need the car again until it was time to go. There were weddings and parties all weekend but it was always quiet in our room. If you want to stay in a beautiful, historic hotel central to everything great in the French Quarter, you can't beat the Monteleone.

The beds where great the food was great and the location was just right. The concierge was great made all the arrangements for our day trips.

This hotel was just ok. I was expecting more grandeur based on the views of the building facade. On the positive side: The location was convenient, right in the heart of the French Quarter on Royal Street, while the room was high up enough (12th floor) that we didn't hear street noise (though the walls were a bit thin and we were able to hear our neighbors). The doormen were great, as was the cleaning staff. The less than positive: I found the front desk staff not especially helpful and one of the managers a bit rude at the end when we were dealing with a problem with being locked out of the room. The rooms themselves are clean but quite small (we couldn't open the closet door all the way without hitting the nightstand, to give you a sense) and the style of the decor feels antiquated. If I were to return, I'd check out one of the smaller inns or B&Bs instead of this one.

The pictures and alleged ambiance of this antiquated hotel are misleading. The rooms are cruise ship small poorly lit and the beds are very uncomfortable. The pillows are like cotton balls and created a restless night sleep. The best part of the room was the shower the sink is too small and the toilet is similar to those in a public restroom and extremely loud everytime you flushed. Our room 483 had a view of a parking garage that was close enough a passerby could see directly in. Finally the staff wasn't friendly they were agitated and oftentimes just rude. The doormen were the only charming part of the hotel. Needless to say this hotel gets a 2 and that's being modest.

Have stayed here many times in the past, but was disappointed in lack of interest of staff. There didn't seem to be any energy and pride in their hotel.

This hotel is very quaint and beautiful. Keep in mind that old hotels typically have smaller rooms. We got one of their suites and it was still fairly small but very nice. The hotel staff are wonderful and always greet you with a smile!

I stay here every trip to New Orleans. Such a nice, clean and lovely historic hotel. You can't go wrong.

I had to wait from 4:15 pm to 5:30 pm for a room. They gave many excuses and there were many angry guests in the lobby in the same boat. The desk clerk made up for it by giving us two drink vouchers, four breakfast vouchers and a $50 refund. They were in a difficult situation and handled it pretty well.

Great hotel. Elegant high ceilings with spreadout space below in the double queen room we had. Quiet room but do not expect a quiet lobby.

Have not stayed in the hotel in 50 years. Hotel is in much better condition than it was 50 years ago. Had a high floor room with great view of the Mississippi River. Hotel staff were nice and helpful. The room was on the small side, but it is an older hotel. The room was very comfortable.

Unfortunaly the last night I stayed, the kitchen was back up. They told me it would take a little longer to cook my double cheese burger, which I ate every night around between 10 PM - 4 AM. Always took about 30 minutes from the time I place the order. I was told it would take a little longer this night. A little longer turn into over an hour, I was starving, so called down a couple of times. The guy at the front desk was completely unprofessional (Indian or Pakistani guy, can't remember his name). After over and hour, I called down and said I would be walking across the street in my underwear (but I did wear shorts, because it's nice place, but no shirt). I went to the front desk to make sure they canceled the order, when a security guard (white guys, about 5 feet tall, with a gun) approached me agressively and told me I had to have a shirt on or leave. I explained I was going across the street to get a burger, and he continued to tell me to leave IMMEDIATELY. Ahhh... I'm sorry, but I'm hungry and I would like to get some food. So I walked out and ask a very nice doorman (black guy), where one might purchase some decent food at this time of night. He explained that since there are drunks out on the street, they "might" not let you in without a shirt. I thanked him and went back up to my hotel room, where there was a nice bellman holding my food. I appologized for him waiting on me, and explained that I canceled the order. So I tipped him and asked him to give i
