Reviewed 28 March 2012

Hotel Monteleone is a nice hotel in the french quarter. We stayed recently and found the Royal Street location close to everything in the quarter which was convenient. The traditional king room was nice but a little small and there was virtually no counter space in the bathroom. Also, the bathroom outlet did not work. Although we spent most of our time sightseeing and enjoying New Orleans, we would have liked a comprehensive cable package and free wi-fi in the room. Found the carousel bar charming and the service was very good. We will probably stay in a similar hotel that offers free in room wi-fi on our next visit.

Room Tip: Had a fourth floor room facing the antique shops on Royal Street. Nice view, sunny and not too nois...

Stayed at the Monteleone twice in the last seven months, with the last being over Christmas of 2011. I was pleased on both occasions with the quality and cleanliness of the rooms, and the attentiveness of the staff. I am a huge fan of the Carousel Bar that is located near the main entrance. It is often difficult to find a seat in there, but when you do, it's worth it. The location of this hotel is convenient to most FQ attractions/restaurants/sites, and you feel appreciated when you stay here. I concur with other posters who noted the beauty of the main lobby, which is particularly glorious over the holidays. My only complaint is that the hotel's gift shop is rarely open/attended. When you're in a hurry and need a postage stamp or something small, having this as a resource is valuable. Waiting around for someone to open the locked door (when the hours of operation are posted but not honored) is frustrating, and most of the time, I abandoned my efforts and went elsewhere. Cost me some time. But I would absolutely recommend this hotel to anyone who appreciates high quality and elegance in their accommodations and hotel staff.

Room Tip: Rooms with a "FQ view"...hardly. You may get rooftops (which is great) or a brick wall. Ha...

I stayed at the Hotel Montelone for three nights over the weekend of March 9, 2012. The hotel is ideally located near the edge of the Quarter. It was very easy to explore in all directions and pop back into the hotel to drop packages, freshen up, etc. The room and especially the bathroom were small however that is to be expected in a historic hotel. The room was clean and the service throughout the hotel was excellent. On a busy spring weekend the hotel set us back upwards of $400 per night which became more affordable since three of us split the bill. It was fun to end our evenings in the awesome Carousel Bar in the lobby where they have fantastic bands and vocalists perform. I also enjoyed the rooftop pool and the fitness center was well equipped. It was easy to store our luggage on our final day prior to returning to the airport. If I can afford it I would definitely stay there again!

Room Tip: We chose a high floor to decrease inpact of revelers on street below.

Situated right on Royal at the Canal end of the Quarter, the Monteleone is in the thick of it. The doormen, reception and concierges were all extremely friendly, efficient and helpful. The main lobby is bustling and beautiful - decked out with chandeliers, comfortable seating areas and fabulous floral arrangements. Forewarned by reviews here, we ask for a quiet room on a high floor. Reception was very responsive and accommodated us with room 1447. Though our friends were in a much smaller room on the 15th floor (1538), we were very pleased with the size of our room. The marble bathrooms are on the small side with one sink, a tub with shower and a toilet on a strange angle. Were we to stay in the Quarter again (which we would not do) we would stay here. We do recommend it.

Room Tip: Ask for a larger size room on a high floor.

This is a charming, historic hotel with a ton of character. It's location is perfect--close to the action on Bourbon Street, but set a block away so you can avoid a lot of the noise and insanity when you're ready to head home for the night. My room was quite small, and looked out into an interior courtyard housing the A/C units, so that left something to be desired. But Being in New Orleans, you probably don't want to be spending too much time in your hotel room anyway. Overall, a good place to stay, with a strong sense of history.
