It's a pretty expensive place to stay but we love to pamper ourselves when we travel so we figured what the heck. A great friend recommended it. It's pretty and grand when you enter but don't rely on the bellman to assist you in any way getting your heavy luggage up the few stairs because they are busy smoking outside the hotel. We hoped to leave the thoughts of cold Michigan weather and lounge around the cool outside rooftop pool drinking cocktails. NOPE! Pool was closed for a private event that no one told us about when we booked our room. Wouldn't you think the reservations office in the Monteleone would kindly tell people that the pool would be off limits for several days? Creeps! Also, we wanted to check our email while there and get this...$7 for twenty minutes to use the computers in the business center. One of the four treadmills in the exercise room was broken my entire stay. Our TV in our room did not get NBC or CBS and while this wouldn't normally be any big deal it was this trip because we wanted to watch the basketball finals. Would I stay at this hotel again? Not on your life. Would I recommend traveling to New Orleans? Yes! It's a city full of fun, history, and good times. Just stay somewhere else.
