“Great service, great location, and great food!”
Reviewed October 8, 2009

My wife and I traveled down to New Orleans to stay for two nights at the Hotel Monteleone in early October. The city itself is fabulous: great food, great people, great atmosphere. I was hoping that the Hotel Monteleone would provide a great way to experience all the city has to offer.

The first thing that I can say is that this is a historic hotel somewhat reminiscient of a stay at the Hotel Del. The rooms, while nicely updated and furnished, still have different characteristics than the standard hotel rooms of today. That means odd shaped hallways, odd shaped bathrooms, different size standard rooms, and different architecture throughout. Some people will find this attractive while others will not. Be sure that you do not mind this feature before you book, as it could be a deal breaker for some. To myself, the hotel, especially the lobby and carousel bar, are amazing. I love the hisotrical feel and look of the hotel. The style is almost a shock to the senses after having spent so many nights in plain "modern" hotels. It should be mentioned that the hotel has done a nice job of maintaing the structure itself and has provided some modern ammenities (definitely use the workout room and roof-top pool, if only for the view).

The service itself is excellent. We were graciously assisted in every aspect of our visit, from check-in to check-out. There was always a helpful hand to help out. The servers at the restaurants were very good as well. While the Hunt Room Grill took a long time to serve the food (be prepared to slow down for a meal here, do not come if you are in a hurry!), the waitstaff was extremely gracious and the food was top-notch. Filet mignon and crab-stuffed shrimp were excellent.

The location is great as well. Just a jump away from Bourbon St. (without all of the noise) and located right off of Canal St. the hotel is very easy to locate. It should also be mentioned that the hotel is located on Royal St. which becomes St. Charles St., so it is very easy to hop on a street car and head off to the Garden District (which is fabulous).

Overall a very good trip. I booked the trip through LuxuryLink which I highly recommend. Great rates, great service, and a GREAT experience. This website and this hotel do not disappoint. I recommend both.

Just got back from a 4 night stay in mid Sept at Hotel Monteleone. The value was great. This time of year is the down season which is most likely the reason but stay 4 nights at $99 each night. This hotel is very nice, clean and in great location. The carousel bar is a nice touch as well. Would definitely stay here again. I can't believe the quality we got all around for the price we paid...

In the heart of the French Quarter, the Hotel Monteleone is a beautiful historic landmark hotel with very polite and attentive staff. The rooms are well kept and clean, with turndown service. The Carousel Bar is a great place to grab a drink with friends. You are just steps from a number of wonderful restaurants and only blocks from the Aquarium, Jackson Square or the Saenger Theatre. I have a new home when in New Olreans.

The original bill was correct that they slid under the door but at check out ( Kevin at the front desk ) changed the bill and tried to charge us for a mini bar we never used. They fold up your bill and put it in an envelope hoping you wont notice the addirtional charges on it. He took our original bill and just adjusted more charges on it. So check your bill before you leave this place.

The four of us in our party all enjoyed our stay at the Monteleone. The location was perfect as well as our stay. It was on a nice quiet street which I was pleased with since I did consider the Royal Sonesta, which would have been too noisy and dirty (on Bourbon Street). I have never had such speedy service when calling for someone to come to our room (to deliver a refriderator,complementary, for the bellman, etc). It must have been a 2 minute wait for everything. The bellman, Ken, was very attentive and personable. The entire staff was enjoyable and they acknowledged us everytime we came in and out of the hotel. Our room although small (I knew that going in) was very clean. The rooftop pool was very enjoyable after a hot day sightseeing (there is no jacuzzi). The view from the top of the city is great. I liked looking at the lines at the Acme Oyster House. They offer a free mp3 player tour of the hotel at the gift shop. It was informative, but could have been done in 15 minutes instead of the 30 minutes. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. Our room was $99 and parking for a Hummer (considered oversized) was $10 a night.

I got a great rate with their summer get away rate and they offered a great parking rate too directly on the hotel's website. My room and the hotel are very clean and kept up well. There were a few things that bothered me a little though: the room hvac vent and the bath fan vent were covered with dust to the point of being clogged. There's a rice rooftop pool but the water was cloudy indicating that the filter was undersized or clogged.

The room was well appointed with an excellent view of the river. Details such as an extra towel, shampoo, mouth wash, etc. were in the bath. The staff was quite helpful and friendly. We did arrive early, but the hotel was able to accomdate our early arrival. We vised the bar/lounge which was a lot of fun as it revolved ever so slowly. Drinks were well made and the price was normal for the French quarter. We really did enjoy our one night stay. One last thing, the swiming pool was rather small on top of the roof, but the view of the city was perfect.
