“New Orleans Charm”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

We love this hotel so much we made annual visits to celebrate a birthday. The location is so perfect - especially to our favorite oyster bar- Acme Oysters. The hotel is full of charm and is well maintained. The staff is very friendly and you can always get a taxi within seconds.

Here's the facts:
-Great great location.
-Standard room small but bathroom OK
-Outdated room decor but still clean with new appliances
-Most of the views are of a frosted glass window facing a brick wall.
-Cool carousel bar but so busy you'll probably never get a seat.
-Staff was pleasant
-Easy to get a cab
-Reasonable price based on location and amenities.

Stayed there 3 nights with my wife on a short getaway. Centrally located with clean rooms and good service. I would recommend this hotel and stay again if I got a good deal (a bit over priced). Not right in the middle of all the action (so you didn't hear the nightly partying all night), yet close enough to be in the middle of the action quickly.

My boyfriend and I love New Orleans and one of the reasons is the Hotel Monteleone. Ms. Gloria Mikell in housekeeping always sets up our room to perfection. We have specific needs due to allergies and the room is always perfect. And Ms. Dione Dunn in reservations was extremely helpful in getting us a room during a busy week. They truly make us feel like VIP's. Overall, the staff in general is fantastic but it's always nice to recognize a couple of superstars:)

Hebert (in parking/valet) made my trip so much easier by making sure my car was parked right outside the door in garage so I could grab my bicycle first thing Saturday morning and ride to the scheduled biking event in the Quarter.

Anne at the VIP Concierge was incredibly helpful. In fact, I don't think our trip would nearly be as fantastic as it was, without her! She recommended the most incredible restaurants and tours, not to mention being super lovely. You're the best, Anne! The hotel itself is in a great location and has a lot of charm. Breakfast at the Criollo Restaurant was fresh and delicious every day, not to mention the friendly waitstaff- shout out to the lovely Lucille who remembered our names from day one! No complaints from this family of four, we will definitely return! :)

Room Tip: The Carousel bar can be a little rowdy, as well as street performers going into the late hours with...

Hotel Monteleone is located on Royal street in the French Quarter, one block of Bourbon St. So as for location - it doesn't get much better! If you can get there without a car, do it. We drove there 6 hrs and ended up just parking the car for 3 days, you don't need one nor would you want to drive much around there. The only choice is valet and it is $40/day before any tips. Nowhere nearby you can self-park that is much cheaper. The hotel and rooms are very elegant but the rooms are a bit on the small side. The Carousel bar on the lobby level is great and the rooftop pool and exercise room are quite nice. There are hundreds of places to eat within easy walking distance so I'd give the hotel restaurant a pass. At checkout you will see a whole slew of nickel and dime extra charges/fees/taxes - with valet, count on your room to cost about $100 above the room rate.
