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.

This was an absolutely gorgeous hotel with luxurious rooms and amazing service. I will definitely be visiting New Orleans again and I'll definitely stay at the Hotel Monteleone. I recommend utilizing the onsite valet parking as everything is within walking distance.

Just stated at this historic hotel in the French quarter and after being on a great road trip all over the south, this is by far the most cleanest hotel that we have stayed at, especially during the Covid pandemic. From the moment we arrived we were greeted by friendly valet and a very kind and happy front desk attendant. There is germ x on every entrance and exit of this hotel. Housekeeping deserves a huge shout out on how clean our room was. Not only is this hotel beautiful, but it’s in the perfect location a few blocks off Bourbon street. Thanks for a wonderful and clean stay. BTW, I’m pretty sure this hotel is haunted because I heard a blues band playing at 5am and heard people talking outside our door. It only made the experience more wonderful. Read less

I can’t say enough about this hotel and their amazing staff (especially Stephanie in reservations who actually set the wheels in motion for so many great moments)! Due to the pandemic almost all of our travel plans were scrapped. My husband is a huge fisherman so we planned a trip to Venice, Louisiana with a few friends and our daughter. The Hotel Monteleone is his hands down favorite hotel and the only place he will stay in New Orleans. I explained to Stephanie that we were essentially re-routing part of the trip so he could spend the night here. She went above and beyond to make the stay memorable, as did everyone at the hotel from the moment we arrived. Well done, and thanks for the memories that he will hold dear for a long time ❤️. Truly a special place! Read less
