Hotel Monteleone

New Orleans, Louisiana

The hotel

This is not just one of New Orleans finest hotels, this is a film set – movies such as Double Jeopardy with Tommy Lee Jones and The Last Time with Michael Keaton have been filmed here. Once you’ve got over that fact, it’s time to absorb another, it has been said, time and time again, that the French Quarter begins in the lobby of the Monteleone and it truly does, capturing the very essence of what makes New Orleans so very special. A member of the Historic Hotels of America, you will adore your stay here, revelling in a grandeur only the Deep South can provide. Admire stunning views from the sundeck surrounding the rooftop swimming pool, a truly blissful place to chill out, cocktail in hand and a good book beside you. The fitness centre also boasts beautiful views, encouraging you to work that little bit harder perhaps, knowing your reward is to venture out later. At night, your starting point should be the Carousel Bar & Lounge, voted No.1 in a city that’s full of great bars, it’s been immortalised in the writings of Ernest Hemmingway amongst others. Featuring a revolving bar, crowd closer when local characters begin telling stories about this famous hotel as well as the city surrounding it.

Excellent stay Doorman Adam Devenport was such a gentleman and walked me and my huge piece of luggage to the end of the road for my Lyft ride. He went above and beyond just opening the door. Thank you Adam!

Starting with the good - the hotel is stunning and the employees (most) are friendly. The bad - there was NO HOT WATER at 7:15 am. It was completely miserable. The entire area outside the Iberville conference rooms smelled like sewage. It was disgusting and no attempt at explanation was made.

This hotel is a great location, very clean, had great amenities and excellent customer service. All the staff was friendly, professional, helpful and exceeded my expectations. Kathy in the restaurant was the best. If you eat the restaurant ask for Kathy

Everything about the hotel is exceptional - the room, service, friendly and efficient staff. Not a single complaint. Restaurant staff particularly friendly and attentive. The hotel itself is beautiful and well maintained. I will certainly return to NO and the main reason is the high quality of the Monteleone.
