“Recent Reviews are pretty accurate”
Reviewed March 20, 2009

We're regulars to New Orleans. Thought we'd try a new place. Monteleone is pretty from the street and beautiful in the lobby. It's a nice, old, charming hotel, but I have to agree with most of the recent reviews - it is not cheap, the rooms are terribly small, they charge for internet access ($10 a day), and it can be noisy. The rooftop pool is very nice and warm. One big problem: for two of our four nights there, our neighbors next door had all night parties which kept us awake the entire night. We complained to management. They sent up security (who made as much noise as the guests). Quiet for a half hour, then the party resumed. Very aggravating. Probably should have kicked them out. The hand slap was not effective. Course, this IS New Orleans...

My wife and I stayed here for three nights with our two youngest children, ages 3 and 5. We were pleased with everything. The staff was outstanding and eager to help in every way. The room was nice, beds soft. The roof top pool was very nice, and we swam every evening. No real complaints.

For the rate we paid, the hotel is not worth it. Accordingly to locals, the Monteleone sold the hotel a few years ago and things have never been the same. Though the hotel is historic, the hotel people are indifferent to you. No help with bags, etc.

The one thing going for it is it's location.

My husband and I visited New Orleans this past weekend to get away without the kids. We splurged on a Junior Suite at $259/night. The room was perfect. The bathroom had a huge jacuzzi tub and a separate two spray shower. There was no view from our room on the 4th floor as we looked out on to the back of buildings, but our room was off to the side in side wing and was exceptionally quiet. Our favorite thing was the location of this hotel. Being just on Royal at Iberville allowed us to return to our room easily while enjoying Bourbon Street on Saturday night. I would actually go back to my room to use the restroom instead of attempting the bathroom at some of the bars! We would definitely return to this hotel!
We also got a couples massage at their AriaSpa. This spa is no frills, but the massage therapists were very good and it was very convenient being located in our hotel.

We stayed at the Monteleone for a wedding in March. The check-in was easy and quick. The problem was with the size of the room. We stayed in a Traditional King and it was tiny! There was barely enough room to walk around once we put our luggage in there. There is basically the bed and a small desk up against a wall. The other main problem was with the tiny bathroom. There was no counterspace for my makeup bag! It was very dated and not very comfortable. For the rate we paid, it was not worth it. Another negative was the slow elevators.
But there are some positives as well. The location is great- very close to Canal Street, the French Quarter and Jackson Square. Also, the Carosel Bar is great! It slowly revolves and fun atmosphere.

We splurged on one of the deluxe rooms at this historic hotel for our honeymoon and it was worth it. Our room was spacious (for a downtown hotel), clean and nicely decorated. The maid did a nice job. We each had our own bathroom, one with a jacuzzi. The location was perfect, it's right in the french quarter. We could hear the parades and music from our room which added to the romance. Most of the staff were really friendly, mainly the doormen. The concierge lady was kind of snobby. The restaurant had a good breakfast buffet. We really wanted to have a drink at the carousel bar but it was packed every night. The bar actually spins around. Overall we were happy and had a memorable honeymoon.
