We stayed at The Hotel Monteleone for The Tennessee Williams Literary Festival in April 2014 under a festival package for $199 per night (FAR below the standard rate). Due to the historic charm and ambiance of The French Quarter, most of the hotels are highly overpriced. The Hotel Monteleone runs as high at $350-400 a night on weekends. Was our small and basic room really worth that price?....... NO! The room consisted of a king size bed, little walking room and small restroom with nice granite countertops. However, this is The French Quarter and you're paying for the experience. With that in mind, the Hotel Monteleone is a slice of historic Heaven! The lobby is beautiful and leads into a classic carousel bar. Who wouldn't want to roam the same halls as Truman Capote and Tennessee Williams? That's what we came for. The staff of The Monteleone is one of the most hospitable, friendly, helpful and accommodating that I've ever met. They truly go out of their way to impress. Academy Award Nominated Actress Diane Ladd was staying in the hotel while we were there, as part of the literary festival. She's a hoot!
