I choose the Monteleone for location and because it's beautiful from the outside. The rooms are small, but this is normal considering the age of the hotel. The lobby and decor and quite nice although the rooms have a general "worn out" feel to them. Stained carpets, chipped paint, etc. I was disappointed to learn there were no refreshment centers or "minibars" in the room. Apparently they've been removed, but are still listed as an amenity on their website. It's nice to have a refrigerator for water or juice without having to run out for ice every few hours. My mother and I arrived via taxi and were not assisted with our luggage at all. We struggled to pull our luggage up the stairs to the lobby while the doorman flirted with a group of young girls. Check in was fine, but it took three separate calls to receive extra hangers for our room. Wifi is expensive at $11/day and wasn't even reliable. Also, I paid for two days starting at 6:00pm on a Wednesday night, but by Friday morning, my service had been turned off. This happened to me again the following week, so be warned - when you purchase 2 days, you are purchasing calendar days, not 48 hours from the time of purchase. That is a complete rip-off! As a previous poster mentioned, the pool area was generally dirty with trash, left over glasses and used towels. Nor was there any bar/poolside service available. There is just nothing about this hotel that earns it a 4 star rating. I wish I had stayed at the Ritz Carton, but my mother did not want to stay on Canal. Average at best, but nothing special.
