“A Beautiful Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2012

Hotel Monteleone is beautiful, romantic and fun! It is located on one of the best streets in the French Quarter. Close to everything, within walking distance to many, many great restaurants and sights. It has the European flavor that New Orleans is, but in a refined way.
The staff are attentive, but you have to be ready for New Orleans. Quiet on upper floors, great roof top pool. Lobby bar, the Carousel is gorgeous and fun spot for drinks.

Room Tip: High floor and no view is the quietest...

The hotel is nice. I didn't have to worry about things being dirty. That said, the bathroom was ridiculously small and difficult to maneuver in. The ONLY way to park is by valet. We were staying there for a conference and paid a "conference rate" of $199/night. There is no way that place was worth that! From the outside, the hotel and the whole French Quarter looks like a filthy, grafittied, disgusting area that I wouldn't want to be. I was very disappointed with New Orleans and I don't EVER plan to go back! We only spent two nights, so following the first night, by around 4pm, housekeeping had not come, so my husband tracked down a maid and asked to have our room cleaned. For that kind of hotel you shouldn't have to do that!

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...
