Good place to consider if staying in NOLA. Swimming pool on the roof was excellent. Clean and comfy beds. Hard working staffs and good breakfast. Vallet parking was combersome to get stuff out of the car, but they will keep the car until 5 PM which was very nice. Always have good tips handy for the parking staff.

While the rooms were gorgeous, we were pretty cramped with 2 adults and 3 kids in a 2 bed room. Kids loved the idea of haunted rooms, and the location was great for exploring the French quarter. Courteous staff.

We loved our stay at the Hotel Monteleone! We are a family of 3 with a teenager. We booked this hotel off the reviews we saw here and were so happy with our choice! The hotel is in the perfect location. It is situated between Bourbon Street (1 block) and the river - about 5-6 blocks (where we booked quite a few tours). We are from the Boston area - so we thought a block would be pretty long- but the streets in the French Quarter are compact and narrow, so you can walk anywhere pretty quickly.
The staff was wonderful and check-in was a breeze! We had a small issue with our bathroom light, but it turned out to be just the ground fault on the outlet. We fixed it ourselves just as the facilities employee arrived. So no big deal. He was great! The rooms are on the smaller side, but they are in every city we've been to. We didn't want to stay at a big chain - we wanted the whole New Orleans experience and a 125 year-old hotel that is said to be haunted fit the bill! We did not experience any visits from beyond....but.... I thought that the fog-free area on the bathroom mirror might be the work of a spirit...my husband convinced me it was the housekeeper....still - a really cool little touch that I have never seen at any other hotel.
There was construction going on, but you'd never know it and the complimentary breakfast was more than adequate. Lucille, part of the breakfast staff was AMAZING!! She was so wonderful and attentive that we would go back just because of her!!
Having a 14 year old, we didn't make it into the carousel bar, but it looked lovely and the rooftop pool was a treat!!

It was really quiet at night and we were so happy to be just that far from Bourbon St., which was crazy...but an experience! Not recommended for small children!!

So my best tips:
1. Cab it from the airport - it was $42 one way for the 3 of us and we tipped $10
We also booked him for the return trip so we wouldn't have to worry about it. We were lucky enough to get Daniel from Amazing Grace cab.
2. Beignets are awesome!! Get them daily just around the corner at Cafe Beignet at Music Legends park. We sat outside and enjoyed the live jazz. You can get coupons for a free small cafe au lait at the tour company by the river. We preferred this cafe to the famous Cafe du Monde - there's were good - but too similar to the fried dough in New England - we preferred the more doughnut like quality of Cafe Beignet's.
3. You really can fit a lot into just a few days....we had 3 full days - Rode the steamboat - don't get the meal ticket - you can get stuff onboard ala carte), visited the WWII museum (tour company by the river provides transportation with ticket purchase), took a Swamp Tour (way better than I thought it would be), went to the State museum, walked all over the Quarter, and heard Jazz at Irvin Mayfield's. Plus....went to tons of great restaurants. So much amazing food and music!!
4. If you can splurge - go to the Pelican Club restaurant....that was our personal favorite and just around the corner from the Monteleone. Dress is business casual.
5. You can follow @hotelmonteleone on Twitter and Facebook and also @VisitNewOrleans to know what's going on around the city and the hotel.

Above all.....we loved the Monteleone!! Safe, quiet, clean, and friendly was our experience. We went on a whim through a vacation package with JetBlue and were so happy that we were able to choose the Monteleone!! If we're ever lucky enough to return, we would stay there again!

The hotel has the feel of a European continental hotel; it could be in Paris apart from the Monteleon’s superior customer service. Its rooms are small but bright and clean. The hotel’s location is excellent; in the French Quarter and surrounded by bars and restaurants. There was road works going on during our stay but we were not disturbed thanks to our high floor room. Staff were friendly and the Air-con was quiet and effective in the New Orleans steam. The Monteleon is a haven away from the heat and chaos of a good late night/early morning spent in the Quarter!
