I stayed at this hotel for a week while attending a training class. The rooms are clean yet very small. The staff is very friendly, and the carousel bar downstairs is amazing! However, you will have to get there early, as the seats fill up quick.
The only downside (if you can call it that) is how close it is to all the action. If I would have been on vacation, this wouldn't have mattered, but since I was there for training (at this hotel), hearing Bourbon Street 1 block away until 2am or later was not good for sleeping. I definitely recommend this hotel.

Thank you for the kind review. We apologize for the noise you may have encountered during your stay, it is a factor being located in the center of the French Quarter. We look forward to your return stay and appreciate your recommendation.

We stayed with our two boys over spring break. The Hotel Staff, particularly Bertia and Sarah, were very helpful and accommodating. The staff took time to tell our children 7&9 about the history of this unique hotel. It is a very nice hotel in an excellent location. The roof top pool was very nice. Our kids still talk about how much they loved this hotel.

If you like New Orleans, then this is the place to stay. In the heart of the French Quarter, the Hotel Monteleone is an excellent hotel. Rooms are, for the most part, very spacious and well appointed. Service is a throw-back to the days when hotels were the "place" to be and be seen. The downstairs bar, complete merry-go-round setting is something all should see. Pricey, but worth it, if only for one stay. We keep going back cause we love it so much.

Room Tip: Breakfast is great, but be ready for the bill...it's not cheap...but, it's well worth it.

From the moment you walk into the elegant lobby you know this is a great hotel. From check in to check out everything was great. Room was lovely, though a bit small. We were on the third floor and it was relatively quiet. The maid service was timely and they did an excellent job, plus turning down the bed and leaving chocolate is the best. The bar is incredible, lots of areas to sit and chat with at least two separate bars to serve you as well as cocktail servers. Great location in the French Quarter. Next time we are in New Orleans, we will be at the Monteleone!

Room Tip: Ask for an upper room if street noise bothers you.

I recently stayed at the hotel for a seminar held at the site. I am an admitted clean freak, I wipe everything with germicide towelettes when I settle in any hotel room. The towelettes kept coming up clean. These people have it right!
The room had two double beds, a safe, a small refrigerator , free wifi, thick towels, cozy robes and very comfy beds. We were right on Royal Street, 5th floor and slept soundly. It was during French Quarter Fest with crowded streets as well.
Location is perfect. You can walk everywhere. The staff are friendly, polite, informative and I observed them to be infinitely patient.
Caution- the bar downstairs rotates, if you get motion sick, sit at one of the tables, LOL.
Pool area was great . Bar up there opens after Easter.
Walk everywhere, skip Bourbon St., take the trolley or bus to the Garden District, rent bikes and do City Park, and the surrounding neighborhoods .
You will feel at home at the Monteleone.

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor facing Royal Street

My wife and I went back to New Orleans for the first time in several years and stayed at the Monteleone. We had always talked about staying there but had never done so. We arrived shortly after noon and Cystal, who was checking us in worked hard and cheerfully to get us a room on an upper floor with a river view. The room was small but very comfortable and the bathroom was updated and large. The hotel is in a great location, close to Canal Street, Jackson Square and in the middle of the French Quarter but our room was very quiet. We really enjoyed spending time going round and round in the Carosel Bar off the lobby watching "all of the action".

Room Tip: The lowest priced rooms are very small so we paid a little extra and got a room with adequate space...
