Hotel Monteleone, New Orleans

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

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

You can walk everywhere that's worth experiencing in the French quarter. Hotel is in a safe area where 3 am entry exits are still met with a polite doorman.

A wonderful place that's full of history. Every detail is in place. We were there just before Thanksgiving and the entire lobby was decorated for the holidays. It's a lovely display.

Very nice hotel, historically relevant with all the comforts of new construction hotel. EXCELLENT views on higher floors. Perfectly situated in heart of historic French quarter. Careful about room selection as some rooms can have be very very small. Carasel bar is a fun and interesting spot to have a drink. Bartenders are excellent.

Very friendly staff, great bartender named Travis.

The stay was wonderful. Beautiful hotel and excellent customer service

This hotel reminds me of something you would see in Paris. The interior and architecture were breathtaking. I would highly recommend if you seek a classy and comfortable gem in the heart of the Fench Quarter and short walking distance from Bourbon Street.

Love this hotel. Very elegant and a classic hotel! We booked 2 rooms. the AC was not working properly in both of our rooms on the 6th floor. Also, in one of our rooms, the water was dirty. The other room had clean water.

Minus the first night next door to a screaming baby and loud adults, the room was great. Very close to everything. Parking was too high. $45 per night.

This is the second time I have stayed at the Monteleone Hotel, and it was just as great as the first time. The service is impeccable. You can't beat the location, the food, and the famous carousel bar. This hotel is a mainstay for me and my family. I wouldn't think of staying any place else when visiting New Orleans. The hotel is within walking distance to everything (Bourbon St, Jackson Square, Riverwalk)

Location is 5 stars if you want to be in French Quarter. Otherwise, at best 3 stars for everything else. We were never asked if we needed/wanted help with bags even when there is no ramp from the front door to checkout and there are 4 stairs to navigate. Our room was a Traditional which should read as small. Only enough room to set up a full size bag on a stand in 1 area in front of the window. Otherwise the closet system and desk consume other available space besides the king bed. Bathroom was OK accept that it needs an update. Our view was of a wall on the building next door. For the price of the room (granted during jazz fest) it was sorely lacking in any ambiance other than old world charm.

One of the better hotels in the French Quarter and the location is excellent walking distance to everything. Only downfall would be can hear through walls like water being turned on in shower or someone coughing.

We found the hotel very convenient so that we could walk anywhere in and around the French Quarter. Meals were a little pricey at the hotel.
