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.

First time in New Orleans and couldn't have picked a better place to stay. Great rooms, lots of history and elegance in the building, steps from Bourbon St. Mr. B's right across the street. Will definitely return.

Great location in the heart of the French Quarter of New Orleans. The Hotel is beautiful, elegant really, and the staff are so friendly and attentive. The food is delicious and Char in the restaurant was exceptional! Want to sit in the lounge & have a drink? Have a seat at their carousel bar, it’s so much fun! We loved our vacation!

We spent our 50th Wedding Anniversary at the hotel and the experience was beyond expectations; as we were provided an upgraded suite and very special attention from all staff we encountered. We have stayed before but it has just gotten better...

We were in town for our 15th anniversary. Staff went over and above with all of our requests. They made us feel like we were truly appreciated. Concierge helped arrange everything from excursions to a carriage ride. All in all we will be back!
