I love love loved my first visit to New Orleans and Hotel Montelone played a big part. Gorgeous lobby and the best location. There were three of us in the room, so it was a little tight, but that didn't really matter because we were out and about so much. Also, the room was always humid/damp feeling.
The live jazz at the bar was just great and the cocktails were just as fabulous. Rooftop pool was very cool and the workout room was well equipped.
I didn't have any meals here, it was little too pricey for the breakfast, but didn't matter because there are so many great affordable places close by.
The one thing that keeps it from being an "excellent" rating for me was the price of internet, it felt excessive to me and it was complicated to log on. I feel a hotel of this caliber that hosts so many business conferences and the like should offer complimentary wireless. If a little coffee shop can have free wifi, so should a luxury hotel.
