“First Class Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2014

I once again had the pleasure of visiting the Hotel Monteleone in New Orleans. My company has at least one board meeting a year here. Everything from the check in to the meeting rooms were first class. When my luggage arrived to my room, the lady that was accompanying it was actually a hotel manager. The bell staff was attending a meeting and she didn't want us to wait. That doesn't happen very often. In big cities, the valet parking can be difficult especially at peak hours. In our case however, Mr. Herbert Johnson, who works in the garage area, made sure we were well taken care of. Thank you Herbert! My advise is when in New Orleans, pay the Hotel Monteleone a visit. Even if it is just to go to the world famous Carousel Bar for Marvin to make you cocktail.

One of the best experiences I have had of any hotel. For New Orleans, it is first class. No disappointments, no regrets! Compared other prices on this stay and this was the best value for the location. Too bad I could not enjoy the Carousel Lounge, it was packed, but it is beautiful.

Everything about this hotel is top notch. My only complaint is that our, a corner 12th floor room, faced Royal Street and it wasvery loud every night until about 1 am then the noise died down. Sllep was a bit disturbed until then.

Awesome experience. Close enough to all the French quarter action but far enough away from the Bourbon street madness! Carousel bar makes the best drinks. We would never stay anywhere else in NOLA. Good mix of old hotel charm and quaintness but excellent service and staff. This was our fourth time staying there over the last few years, and found it just as inviting and relaxing as ever! Excellent value for your money spent!

Stayed here three nights during Spring Break. The hotel is convenient to shops and restaurants in the French Quarter. The room was a bit small but very clean and the beds were comfortable. Hotel staff was attentive with prompt service. Two things: they charged for WiFi (considering price of rooms I was surprised) and the parking garage service wasn’t very good. Other than that it was a lovely stay.

Room Tip: The 14th floor is supposed to be haunted so request a room on that floor if you want the possibility...

The hotel is beautiful although the carousel bar stayed so full I never got the benefit of using it. It is pricey, but to be expected. The staff were outstanding, from the check-in to housekeeping and all in between. I was there for a meeting and the breakfast was incredible. Great location. Loved the roof top pool and bar area.
