Friday Arrival Hotel Monteleone is right in the middle of the French Quarter (Vieux Carre) on Royal Street with Bourbon Street one block up. Car whisked away to be parked at $25 per day and up to our room on 14th (well 12th in our numbers as the ground is 1 and there is no 13th). Out for a few beers, then dinner on Bourbon Street - out on a balcony …
The rain was really coming down on our drive from Beaumont to New Orleans. For several miles, I-10 was a bridge over a bunch of swamp land. We stopped at the Blue Dog Cafe in Lafayette for some good Cajun food. It was Mariana's first time eating Cajun food and she wasn't too impressed with the seafood gumbo so exchanged it for a really good crab au …
The last time either one of us was in New Orleans it was Mardi Gras and we were slumbering through the French Quarter exchanging favors for beads, though not with each other. That was pre-Challi, pre-Katrina, and pre- a lot of other things that have happened over the last 12 to 15 years. This time, we went to the Big Easy to …
... nice to feel like you're just informally stopping by Faulkner's house, but it was a little strange. Then, we started walking up to the house. The grounds are quite large and have a few magnolia trees leading up to the front walk. I was freaking out because there was still no signage and I began to wonder if we had started to wander up to some stranger's door. Having seen the picture of Rowan Oaks already, Mike was calm. However, when ...

Vi fandt dog et sted der serverede mad og der mødte vi to søde piger som tog med os til frenchmen street hvor alle barerne har livemusik. Hvis man skal hører jazz er det helt klart stedet at være! Jeg ved ikke om det var ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Monteleone New Orleans
Nice hotel, Bad weather
Very nice hotel but not perfect. Bellmen were particularly helpful as was front desk but concierge was a zero. I think I know more about N.O.
rhan she did. No newspaper available, was told to get one at Walgreens next door. got caught in horrific rainstorm (not their fault of course) and had to return to room to change. Room not made up until after 4PM.
A Wonderful Experience
Now this is THE place to spend a vacation! We requested a king bed and had the best 5 nights of sleep EVER. It was hugh with almost too many feather pillows and the most comfortable feather pad imaginable. The staff was helpful and polite, always ready to assist two first time tourists they were genuinly proud of their beautiful city. You really can walk anywhere in the French Quarter from this location. It is safe, even at night-being one block from the district police station and the front doorman always addressed us by name. We will come back as soon as possible!
I stayed @ the Monteleone in July 2001 and have reservations to stay there in July 2003. The staff was outstanding, the accomodations were terrific and the location is great. We worth the cost!
Historical Beauty, Great Location
I stayed at the Hotel Monteleone in March, 2003. I was very pleased with the hotel. We had the king accomodations for a reasonable rate ($150 per night). The room we had was one of the older ones. It was very charming and comfortable, with pleasant decor and a newly renovated bathroom. As mentioned in other reviews, the room was a little on the small side, but not a major drawback. The hotel is very centrally located and within walking distance to a majority of the popular sites and restaurants. The hotel offers many modern amenities (restaurants, pool, workout room) and also maintains its historical beauty.
Stayed for Jazzfest 2002 and Jazzfest 2000. Was very pleased both times. Expensive, but worth it.
Very nice hotel with good location
We went stay at the Monteleone for 3 nights in June 2002. We were very happy with our stay there. It is an older, historic hotel, but that adds to the charm. The lobby is beautiful and the staff is friendly. It is a high rise, but the elevators are efficient enough. There is also adequate parking provided by the hotel. We stayed on the 14th floor. The rooms are fun because they are not the typical layout that you see in every hotel chain in America. The ceilings are extremely tall and the room is more square than rectangular like usual. You can tell that they are older rooms by the ornate details everywhere, but everything has been renovated and so it's plenty nice. The beds were good, the view was nice, and everything was nice and clean. The only problem I had with the room was that the walls are very thin. We were only a few doors down from the elevator so we could constantly hear people going by and it got annoying. So request a room father from the elevator. The pool on the roof is smaller, but has a great view and is heated to the perfected temperature. It's very nice to go up and relax in. The location for this hotel is great. Not in the seedy part of town, and right in the thick of things. We never had to drive anywhere. There is a breakfast buffet that was moderately priced, but the service was wonderfull and the food was delicious. I would definitely stay here again. It's a charming old hotel and we really enjoyed our stay.
A good deal in the quarter
We booked this hotel on Expedia for $99/night. We thought the location and character looked great. We were right! The Monteleone is an old hotel that has recently been renovated. It is right on Rue Royal street (one block off of Bourbon). If you stay here, ask for a room in the "new" section. This is the section that has been renovated. When we asked for a room in the new section they gave use their corner sweet on the top floor! The suite was at least 1,200 sq ft and nice!
This isn't a Ritz, but it is definately worth staying at for it's location and character.
Could do better
Stayed July 27-29, 2002. Booked with Travelocity approx. 45 days in advance. Payed in advance for 3 people. Arrived at hotel to find they had booked us into king bed room which was non-smoking. The room was not ready until almost 4:00 pm and it was the worst in the hotel. The window looked out onto an alley and we never did find a switch for the light in the closet. The TV was a 19 inch with only basic cable. The furnishings were nondescript hotel standard. Travelocity's fine print does say they cannot guarantee room preferences so I would not ever book a hotel online with them again unless I did not care how many people would be sleeping in each bed! Also, the photographer who did the web photos earned every penny of their money. The pool is very small and every chair was taken on Saturday afternoon. For $20 more we could have stayed at the Ritz-Carleton. Or we could have stayed at the Hilton and had HBO and a hot tub. I just did not think this hotel was worth the money.
A beautiful hotel..right in the heart of the french quarter...all the charm and style that goes with the area...The lobby alone is worth a visit!
A jewel in the French Quarter
Lovely hotel - a gem right in the middle of it all. Excellent in-house restaurants, with the best servers. What a breakfast! And reasonable. We always stay at the Monteleone during Mardi Gras, and it's wonderful being right at the center of the action, yet able to escape to the Hotel's classy tranquility. The rooms themselves may be a little small, but they're well appointed.
