Hotel Monteleone.... Oh how I looked forward to loving you. Unfortunately that was not the case. Truthfully we started out on a sour note; Not once were we assisted by a doorman! Our arrival was a struggle, we had four large bags and had difficult time even entering the building. The room was very small, The sheets were fine however the heavily patterned waffle blanket under the sheet was very uncomfortable. Both nights that we were here we switched out the bedspread for the patterned blanket. The decor, heavy French; which I was expecting. Walls were thin and you could hear activity in the halls.
First night here I stepped on something sharp that pierced my foot!
On the plus side, the lobby is exquisite, the hotel is in an excellent location and was decorated beautifully for Christmas.
I'd like to mention; Concierge (Anne) was extremely personable, Jani at the front desk was darling and Carmen in your essentials store was a delight. We loved the carousel bar, the bartenders were helpful and engaging, the Pims Cup perfection. Would I stay here again? Probably not.
