“One of the Finest in NOLA”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2014

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.

The Monteleone is a truly first class hotel one street from Bourbon Street
Great staff, very clean rooms, great food at the restaurant and great drinks at the carrousel.
We can't wait to go back to New Orleans and the Monteleone.

My son and I recently stayed here for a few days for his birthday and we absolutely loved it! When we arrived they even had a little gift bag with his name on it and got him a few small items, made him feel really special! The rooms are a little small and the view wasn't great but I could have paid for better of both.. I chose to go the cheaper route. The Carousel Bar was awesome! Try the Marvin..only to be made by Marvin. Best bartender ever! Room service was a little pricey but worth every penny, delicious!! We will definitely be coming back. Oh and you can't beat the location!

Stayed with 4 of my closest lady friends for 3 nights at the Hotel Monteleone. Excellent location for fun in the French Quarter. Slept great on the fabulous pillows and found all the best places to eat and party thanks to our doorman David. He seemed to always be there! The food in the hotel restaurant was excellent, local cuisine. Looking forward to my next stay.

We received free drink coupons to the Carousel bar. I couldn't decide what to order. Our waitress, Mariana Jauregui was SO HELPFUL and down to Earth and made me feel so comfortable right away. She's wonderful!!!!

Very clean safe modern hotel hidden behind the facade of a historic building located the heart of the French quarter. Great food with even better service. Staff was on top of everything.
Many thanks and happy 75th to Hotel Al. Never slow down and keep on working our nation needs more of you.
