My stay at the Hotel Monteleone was pleasant, Allen who worked at the front desk was very helpful, however some of the other front desk staff wasn't very nice, nonetheless I really my enjoyed my stay.
This is a beautiful, historic hotel which is a must visit while in New Orleans! I was directed here because of the Carousel Bar, by locals. It did not disappoint! The bar is an old fashioned carousel that rotates- while patrons enjoy drinks, live music, and interesting conversations. Also, if you are a fan of history, and ghost stories...then you need to speak with Diana, the Lobby Ambassador at the hotel. She is a treasure! She spent time relaying historical stories, along with ghost stories to me. She even had a photo book that she brought out to further illustrate the stories she told. She is great! This hotel is definitely worth a trip, if you’re in New Orleans! The staff is fantastic, and the bar and live music is also great!
Back to the High Standards I Expect from this Hotel
It's been one year since I stayed at this hotel and my previous visit was not the best. This time around I can report that it's back to its top tier status. I was greeted warmly as an iPrefer member this time around and provided a glass of champagne upon arrival. I was explaining to my guest about my previous stay and Love, the front desk atttendant, overhear my comments. She immediately gave me a coupon for a free drink at the Carousel Bar and apologized for my previous experience. Now, that is what I call a "take charge" attitude from the front desk staff. The room was a premium double room, which is one of the larger rooms in the hotel. We were both pleased with the room and the housekeeping services throughout our stay. Everyone was pleasant and wanted to make sure we were enjoying ourselves. I would like to give a special shout out to Lauren, the waitress at the Carousel Bar. She made our stay especially enoyable and we were lucky to sit in her section two nights in a row. She was attentive and came around often to make sure we were well taken care of in the drink department. This was a major improvement over last year and I believe management took my previous review to heart and corrected some of the problems previously exerienced. Kudos to hotel management! The Hotel Monteleone is back to being my No. 1 choice for a hotel in the French Quarter!
Maurice- the ghost
I won't tell you what floor we were on, but we had a visit from Maurice, but it was no biggie. The carousel bar is a cool place to grab a drink (try it around 3:00 if you want a seat). In-room breakfast is a very good option.
Great stay, perfect location!
We stayed for 4 nights 2/13-2/17 5th floor facing Royal St. Instant check in, beautiful hotel, nice room With comfy bed, pillows. Rooftop is a great place to see the city, has a small bar and a heated pool! Breakfast at Criollo was good and the Carousel Bar was awesome. We got Drinks from The lower bar 3 nights in a row and the bartenders were prompt, made wonderful drinks. This location can’t be beat. 2 blocks to my favorites, like GW Fins, Redfish, Acme Oyster, Cafe Beignet, French Truck Coffee, Mr B’s across the street. We dressed up for dinner then walked back to our room To change into comfy clothes then out to walk and people watch. We will stay here again and recommend to our family and friends.
