We celebrated a birthday in New Orleans the first weekend in October, 2009 and stayed at the Hotel Monteleone for 3 nights. It had been recommended to us by friends who had stayed there several times before. We'd both been to NOLA several times before, but we won't ever stay anywhere else again! The service was wonderful (we had iced Champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries waiting for us in the room when we checked in!) and the staff was very friendly and helpful. HM is located in the French Quarter, but not on Bourbon Street so you are away from the noise and crowds, yet close enough to be there in just minutes. The Carousel Bar was a fun treat as well. We didn't utilize the rooftop pool, but it was lovely. We did use the exercise room - it was great and looking out over the Mississippi River while walking on a treadmill was a great way to while the time away. They did, however, have several other types of exercise equipment, and there was access to TV on each piece. We also tried out the spa and got a nice massage! The room price was very reasonable - in fact it was quite a bargain. And even though the rooms are not big compared to some standards, it was plush and comfortable. The whole place is beautiful!!
