We stayed here while in town for a wedding. The location is excellent. Walk to absolutely everything. The real treats, however, were in the hotel. We had dinner in the bar on the first night and, to our surprise, the hotel was hosting a Beatles cover band in the Carousel bar that night who were outstanding. The service at the restaurant was friendly, cordial, and even a bit entertaining. The food was hands down the best I had in New Orleans -- the root vegetables and satsuma oranges that accompanied my dish were they freshest and tastiest I'd ever had. We also got a free bottle of house wine for staying in the hotel -- not the best wine ever but it was free! After dinner we squeezed into a packed bar and listened to the band. Best Beatles cover around.
As for the rooms, they were fine but small and standard and the only reason I don't give Hotel Monteleone an excellent rating...
