First off, let me start by saying that the Carrosel Bar in the lobby is a must see. Even if you aren't staying at the Hotel Monteleone, I would check this out. The whole bar rotates like a carrosel.
I travel to New Orleans often since it's only 2-1/2 hours away from where I live. We often take weekend trips or mini vacations there for weddings, parties, sporting events, & even work. I've stayed at several hotels all over the city.
Hotel Monteleone was a little too over the top for my taste. However, if you are traveling to New Orleans for the first time & are looking for a great experience, this would be a great place to start. It has tons of charm & the staff is well above average, they are great. I just prefer a little more modern hotel. The price is a little high just for a weekend trip for me, but if I didn't live so close, I would gladly pay this price to have a great experience.More
