My husband and I have stayed at this hotel often. It is romantic and beautiful...and since it is on Royal street...great shopping and restaurants are only steps away. We stayed in the Vieux Carre Suite (room 1277) this trip. We had great views of the quarter and the Mississippi River. The room was spacious with a living room and it even had a powder room! The decor is traditional....the rooms are clean....and we had the sweetest housekeeper. The grab and go breakfast was convenient. This will not be our last stay at Monteleone.
