I had a week in NOLA, and hoped to spend it all at the Cornstalk. They were booked for two nits of my stay, so I started the week at the Monteleone. Monteleone wins, hands down. The Cornstalk is like a hostel, but $200 a night. The room was VERY dark and cold. No thermostat in the room. No shampoo either! Or glasses for water! Turned out that was behind a curtain near the rear desk (not a front desk, as it's at the very back of the hotel). The desk was rarely manned when we were there, so it was hard to get help. All the rooms that should be public areas (parlor, dining room) are now bedrooms, so there are no places in the hotel to sit and read. the TV in the room was so small as to be laughable. The internet was slow and spotty. The last night there were guests in the courtyard making a racket until at least 1 am, when I went out to ask them to quiet down. No sign of the manager. There are a lot of better choices in the Quarter and no reason to choose the Cornstalk over them. Just an expensive, COLD, dark room.

- The Cornstalk Hotel has been newly renovated and refurbished featuring fourteen exquisite guest rooms. Brilliant crystal chandeliers, antique mirrors and furnishings adorn the entrance hall, beautifully set off by high vaulted ceilings. The rosette scrolls, cherubs, medallions, stained-glass windows, fireplaces and canopy beds are all relics of a Louisiana plantation home. We are in the heart of the Vieux Carre' (French Quarter), with the sights, the sounds, the gourmet food and night life of old New Orleans. ... more less
