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 is the second time in a month that I’ve flown from Chicago to New Orleans and a large part of the reason is due to our stay at this Fabulous Hotel. Old Word elegance, family owned, happy staff, clean, comfortable beds and Great food. Their Beignets are the Best in the city. The rooftop pool is amazing! The Hotel has everything you could possibly ask for. The first visit with my daughter we stayed in the smallest, least expensive room and we were Very satisfied. A month later when I had to share my experiences with my husband, we stayed in a suite. OMG! I literally felt like royalty! When I went with my daughter, it was after a year of strict quarantine for me, and a year of ups and downs for my daughter, an educator with 2 boys at home. We felt an Immediate sense of welcome after meeting with Emirhan Yilmaz (guest services manager). He showed us around and told us the Hotel’s history with an enthusiasm I’ve rarely encountered. Under normal circumstances I need at least a day to unwind. Emirhan accomplished that in less than an hour, making us feel like favorite family members welcomed home. THANK YOU!!!!!!!!! Read less
