“Great Historic Hotel with Class”
Reviewed 22 July 2012

Stayed here in April and again in July on a visit to the Big Easy. Hotel staff (Meetali & Meenakshi) at the front desk are awesome. They went out of their way to ensure we had a great stay. The hotel bar is called The Carousel Bar is very upscale, but they do allow casual attire...hey it's New Orleans! The rooms are very nice but on the small side. When booking a room be sure to book a "preferred" type room for view and larger size. If you are a cheap skate this is not your hotel. The roof top pool is small but nice and has a bar.

Room Tip: Book a river view or French Quarter view room.

EXCELLENT service and good value for a 'luxury' type hotel. Staff was very polite and helpful. Rooms were clean. We had two double beds and a roll away in our room. We had adequate room for the three of us.
I dealt with the following individuals at the hotel and was very satisfied with their service: garage staff, front desk staff, bellmen, housekeeping, hotel engineer, and doormen.

Room Tip: Staff is very polite and will bend over backwards to help.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel recently and we could not have been happier. The service was excellent right down to the door man. You can't beat the location. Right in the French Quarter. A short walk to Jackson Square. The staff offered great recommendations on places to eat and drink, and what tours to take. The bar downstairs was alot of fun. We will definitely stay here again if we return to New Orleans!

Room Tip: We stayed in a standard King. It is an older hotel so the rooms were a little small. We didn't...

The hotel is located in the perfect spot in New Orleans. It is close to Bourbon street and a short walk to the French Market, Café du Monde, riverfront, casino and other spots of interest. The price per night couldn't be beat for a major city. I was impressed with the way the hotel is maintained. While the bathroom was a little small, it was newly remodeled along with the room and the rest of the hotel. The bed was very comfortable and temperature control in the room was excellent. The hotel was handling a major conference with many kids being in town. The staff handled the influx of traffic with ease. They were very courteous and attentive.

Room Tip: I received a tip from a friend that the lower level floors are noisy with all of the foot traffic fr...

We have stayed at the Monteleone on many occasions. It has the right mix of tradition and
comfort. For those who enjoy walking, this is the perfect location. You are in the heart of the
French quarter with countless restaurants and shops right there. Usually the price is
reasonable for what you are getting. One warning is that they have some tiny rooms,
but we are usually able to transfer within a day to a room more to our needs.

Room Tip: Make reservation as far ahead as possible.

We stayed here in January 2012 for my husband's 40th birthday. It was the such a wonderful hotel. The location is perfect! It's walking distance to Bourbon St., great reasturants & Cafe Du Monde. In the heart of the french quarter without being too close to the rowdiness of Bourbon St. The Carousel Bar was it's best feature. We spent every evening there listening to great live music. I highly recommend the "Monteleon Cocktail" hands down the best drink in town. We are planning another trip to NOLA in November and plan to stay here again.
