We just completed a 4-night stay at the Hotel Monteleone and it was excellent in every way -- remember this is a historic hotel with modern amenities, and still configured as originally built with smaller rooms and very small bathrooms. If you are looking for large rooms and bathroom space to accomodate everything two or more guest might have, you need to look elsewhere.
With that said, we had a beautiful room on the 14th floor overlooking the Mississippi River, the front desk staff were very helpful, the Criollo Restaurant was delightful (see my separate review), and the housekeeping staff were polite and well trained. Overall, if you like staying in historic hotels like we do, this should be your stop while staying in New Orleans.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- It’s been said that the French Quarter begins in the lobby of the Hotel Monteleone. In fact, this venerable establishment sits majestically at the foot of Royal Street giving guests the best point of departure for all things New Orleans. Visitors need only step outside this French Quarter hotel to discover shop after shop of fabulous European antiques, estate jewelry, Oriental rugs, and art and antiquities from around the world. Quaint restaurants and specialty shops outside of this luxurious New Orleans hotel line the cobblestone French Quarter streets that lead to Jackson Square, the Old French Market and the Riverwalk where tourists and native New Orleanians stroll the levee and watch the steamboats and barges along the Mississippi River. At this New Orleans hotel, you’ll find history around every corner. ... more less
