Not the poshest place I've ever stayed, but it's nice enough for an old and historic hotel. I like the location because it's within walking distance to the French Quarter but not right in the heart of the action. Don't forget to stop in for a drink at their Carousel Bar!

My husband and I recently stayed at Hotel Monteleone and had a wonderful visit. The front desk staff was friendly and accomodating to our needs. Our room was lovely. It not only had the basics (clean, fragrant, beautiful views of the city, well furnished, etc) but the bathroom was the best feature! It was marble, with a separate shower stall and a large tub for two, with jets along the side of the bath tub. The bathrobes and towels were plush and high quality and the sheets must have been north of 500 thread count. We ordered room service one morning, and it was delivered on time with food that was both delicious and hot. We would go back in a heartbeat. We truly enjoyed our experience at the Hotel Monteleone!

The Monteleone, is the only place we stay, when we visit the Big Easy. And they were up and running shortly after Katrina, with a limited staff. Our last visit, was like going to a good friends house for the weekend. Some college kids were kind of noisy one night, and I mentioned it to the front desk, and we were moved and upgraded at no extra charge. And the renovated rooms are lovely. Mornings always stared in the LeCafe for breakfast. That staff, was so friendly, it was like having coffee with your best friend in the morning. And after a day/night of drinking/eating, coming back to the hotel, it was always a night cap at the legendary Carousel Bar. It's on Royal St. with all those wonderful antique/galleries, and one block away from Bourbon St. and the noise. This is our New Orleans home. Five Stars!

If you're looking for a wonderful hotel in the French Quarter (close to everything!) without the noise of Bourbon St. - this is it!! My husband and I try to stay here whenever we're in New Orleans. The carousel bar is wonderful as is the staff (particularly the concierge)!

My wife and I visited New Orleans pre-Katrina at the end of November 2005. It's located right at the edge of the French Quarter. It was perfectly situated for exploring the city. We loved being able to walk home at night from all the restaurants and hot spots. The Hotel is only a block off of Bourbon Street.
The Hotel is furnished very nicely. You don't feel as if youre in the typical bland hotel room. It's also large enough so you don't feel as if your being scrutinized either.
The topper to all of this was their Carousel bar in the Hotel Lobby. It was nice to come back and have a nightcap in this one of a kind gem (Don't worry. The bar doesn't rotate so fast that you get dizzy).

I was here just before Fat Tuesday. The food was Great. Our waitress was very friendly and knowledgeable The Carousel Bar is something to experience. The room was very nice(what I saw of it) It is a thing you want to do to have that ""Mardi Gras feeling. Loets of people having fun. The only bad thing was some of the elevators were shut down, but I am sure that is long since fixed. Hope you have fun.

We chose this hotel based on some reviews we read on travel guides, but we were disappointed. We realized that ""historic"" is just a euphemism for ""really, really old."" The facade and the lobby are beautiful, but our room was very, very shabby. The bathroom was pitifully outdated. We could not sleep much for the two nights we stayed, because of the noise from other guests (thin wall?), who were shouting for hours. The frontdesk did not respond to our complaints. Stay here if the only thing you care about is being in the French Quarters.
