My wife and I go to Nola once or twice a year, but this was our first stay at the Monteleone. Everything was excellent! The pool area got crowded (it was jazz fest), but it was top-notch. The Carousel Bar downstairs was fun, too.

I stayed at this hotel March 10-15 and participated in a meeting that took place in the meeting room on the top floor of the hotel.
Overall, the hotel is a nice one. The location is very central, and there are many lovely restaurants and tourist destinations nearby. if you stay here, you must try Mr. B's Bistro across the street! My room on the 9th floor was comfortable, but might have felt crowded if there was another person in there with me. I had a nice view of the river due to an upgrade on my iPrefer membership (- you can get one too - it's free). Colleagues who had rooms on lower floors reported that their view was that of another building - not so nice.
My only major complaint about this hotel is how cold they keep it. The AC was constantly running (even though it was a nice 17 degrees outside!) making my room, the meeting room and the washroom on the top floor freezing. I was always cold and that's saying a lot, since I am Canadian! If you will be attending meetings at this hotel, bring lots of layers.
I took advantage of the hotel's spa and had a great massage by Stacey.

Room Tip: As for a high floor. Room 933 has a good view.

We just returned from our 4th trip to NOLA and our 4th stay at the Hotel Monteleone. Once again, we were extremely pleased with our stay. The staff was friendly as always and greeted us warmly at check-in. Our preferred double double room on the 11th floor was huge with a nice view toward Bourbon Street. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. We had a couple of special requests that received immediate attention from both hotel staff and parking attendants. The doormen were helpful and friendly in giving directions, as was the concierge, who recommended the most wonderful candy shop for gifts. The Carousel Bar was great fun, as always, and Lena Prima continues to offer one of the best shows in New Orleans!! She and her band are amazing!

The Hotel Monteleone’s history; perfect location in the Quarter; friendly, accommodating staff; clean, comfortable rooms; and Carousel Bar keep us coming back again and again.

Room Tip: It has been our personal experience and opinion that preferred king rooms have better views (river/Quarter) than preferred double double rooms.

We have stayed at the best hotels and lodging in NOLA over the years including the Windsor Court, Soniat, Audubon Cottages, Royal Orleans, Sonesta, etc. By far this was our most enjoyable stay. The staff was gracious, warm and friendly, and the old Grand Dame was wonderful.

Just returned from a short 3-night stay in NO (wife's first time, my first time in 20 yrs) and we couldn't have been happier with the Monteleone. It's really a beautiful hotel and met our needs perfectly. We had a preferred king on the 11th floor with a nice view overlooking the Mississippi. A comfortable bed, reasonable quietness, and great room darkening drapes meant a good night's sleep. The concierge provided solid advice for finding entertainment to our liking and was able to get us in at Mr. B's when I realized we had forgotten to make reservations before leaving home.

There were only 2 small downsides. First, the tiny bathroom. Space is clearly at a premium, so there's nothong that can be done about it, but, there simply is not enough room to have your toiletries out on the sink. Second, the pool was very nice, but, unfortunately the pool bar had not opened yet for the season leaving "room service" as the only option for beverages.

We spent quite a bit of time at the Carousel Bar. The bartenders are true mixologists and the place was really hopping to the The Prima Jazz Band.

We chose the Monteleone over the Royal Sonesta for not wanting to be right on Bourbon street. I think that was the right choice especially over St. Patrick's Day weekend. Maybe on a slower weekend or during the week we might try RS, because it seemed lovely also.
