“Fantastic Memories”
Reviewed 25 August 2014

This hotel draws you back into the time of "Grand Hotels' of writers, and starlets, and evening rendezvous over great drinks in a perfect location - with food to live for and the murmuring undertones of New Orleans jazz it is the ultimate destination in the French Quarter. The pool side bar on the roof in the hazy, humid heat of a Lousiana August make you remember Old Havana - with Hemingway telling fishing stories over a Scotch and cigar - even though you've never been there.

The hotel staff are VERY polite, professional, helpful, and always have a smile on their face! The restaurant (Criollo) staff are the Best in the business. They truly go out of their way to make sure you have the best dining experience possible. The food is out of this world amazing. I suggest the filet or the lamb. Both will make you melt the moment they touch your tongue! Ask for James for a server!

Staff was perfect. Room was very nice. Bar was vibrant and very classic. Pool was a little bit crowded but very very nice break from the hot hot summer day. Valet was much more efficient than a lot of hotels in New Orleans. It is really perfect location in the quarter close enough to all the activity but quiet in the room.

This hotel was in a great area not far from Canal and Bourbon, but far enough away to have some peace. The service was great from front desk, door men to concierge. The maintenance was superb. The rooms were on the smaller side, but we expected it from an older hotel.

I will most likely stay again at Hotel Monteleone . The Hotel was beautiful. The staff was excellent and very helpful and very kind. The Spa was outstanding! The Ladies that worked on my daughters and myself were very pleasant and great at what they do.

Fantastic hotel and amazing staff. One of the best hotels anywhere. Rooms are a good size, clean and well serviced. The location to the French Quarter and down town NO is perfect. Secure clean, great facilities for family or Biz with the best staff anywhere making this a friendly and warm home away from home. We wont go anywhere else in NO

Traveling solo wanted accommodations with a great location for walking all over the French Quarter. Driving in from I-10 the hotel was easy to find. I did use the parking for the additional fee as my Military Discount made this gorgeous hotel with its perfect location a great find. The trolleys are two short blocks to the left. There is a Walgreens at the end of the block to your left. Rouses grocery store is on Royal and St Louis in the heart of the District. Bought a baguette, some cheese and drinks as there is a small refrigerator In the room. I have to second all the positive reviews posted and am baffled by any negative ones. The business center is top notch. Swimming pool on roof lovely. Most of all the staff was helpful and in a gracious way. Stefanie the Front Office Manager clued me into where the locals go for po-boys.. Parkway Bakery and Tavern Is accessed driving or by the Canal Street trolley. It was closed when I arrived so I opted to try Johnneys Po Boys on St Louis. Reviewed elsewhere. If you want location and a historic hotel this is the place.
