Historical Traveller Reviews of Monteleone Hotel

Son

from A TripAdvisor Member
Went for the King Premier. Absolutely awesome bed in all respects. The only thing better than the bed was the shower - best water pressure ever.Staff was wonderful all-around. While the South is definately so much more friendlier than my wedgied Northeast, the Monteleone went beyond even normal Southern Hospitality.Great bar, and nice rooftop pool area for lounging.On the blah side, the room was small, but it didn't matter, as we were hardly there. Noisy, especially from the street, but we knew what we were getting into being a block over from Bourbon. Plus the strains of the "Sanford and Son Theme" coming from the street being played on trumpet for three nights in a row at 2 AM kind of became "our song." Call us romantics.While a tad pricey, it wasn't at all unreasonable. We will go back.

French Quarter Accommodations

from A TripAdvisor Member
I would recommend the Monteleone Hotel to anyone wanting to be in the heart of the French Quarter. Drive right up to the parking garage and turn your keys over to the attendant.The pool is on the roof (16 floors up) where you can catch magnificent views of the city (great pictures). Close-by is the Mississippi River, and New Orleans is the busiest port in the United States.Located on the ground floor are boutiques, Le Cafe cafe, an Oyster Bar and the Carousel Bar, where you can enjoy cocktails as you slowly glide around the bar at your barstool.The hotel prices vary during the season, but usually in mid-summer, the rates are approximately $90.00 per night (during the week). There is a slight increase for Fridays and Saturdays.The next street over is the world-famous Bourbon Street. We walk everywhere from our Hotel. Excellent shopping on Canal Street and at the Riverwalk.I highly recommend this Hotel.

You cant survive on reputation alone

from A TripAdvisor Member
What a dissapointment!!!!!! Very small room with view of the A/C unit.
Service in the restaurant was non existent . From there to the maid staff, nobody seemed to care if you were happy or not. One elevator in our wing worked . Three days spent waiting 10 -15 minutes for elevator.
Service in bar was as bad as the restuarant. Asked to speak to Gen Mgr . Left message twice and never heard from him. Front desk lost package sent by Fed Ex. Asked three times for it and never did get it. If they are going off of their reputation, then they need to work on service big time. I am seasoned business traveler and have come to expect less than promised, I NEVER Complain.. I will not return for 150.00 per night to be aggrivated. Laquinta , here I come!!!!

Hotel Monteleone --Great!!

from A TripAdvisor Member
My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Monteleone for one night on July 31, 2003. Our room was on the third floor and was very clean and comfortable. There were plenty of towels, the water pressure in the shower was great, and we never ran out of hot water. There was a even a Walgreens downstairs right on the corner for the little things we forgot. There are little 4 cup coffee makers in the room if you are like me and need a little coffee first thing in the morning before you face the world. The room decor was pretty with yellow and white striped wallpaper and the bed was really comfortable with feather pillows and triple sheeting (one sheet, one velour blanket, one sheet). A couple of things to be aware of when staying at the Hotel Moteleone is: the parking is $19 per day (most hotels in New Orleans charge for parking anyway), the rooms are on the small size (completely fine for my husband and I, but I would make sure it is going to be big enough for you if you are traveling with children), and the walls are thin and the street noise carries into the room a bit as well (we wear earplugs while we sleep and had no problem). Those are the only possible downsides that I noticed while we were there, hope this helps!!

Great Hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
Great hotel central to most tourist sites. Easy walk for 2 blocks to bus transportation. 2 blocks from Bourbon St. Good restaurants for that quick meal but great hotels in immediate area. Roof top pool is great way to end the day-sun was very hot even at 4:00 PM. My room was spacious and well appointed. Very, very clean. They have one of the best concierge services I have encountered. I was traveling alone and their advice re. tours, restaurants, walking directions was excellent.
I would definitely recommend or stay there again.

Pass The Airsickness Bag

from A TripAdvisor Member
My friend and I ate at the hotel restaurant. Her crawfish meal tasted of freezer burn and the dressing tasted like it came from a cardboard box (or was the box). I sent it back and ordered a shrimp plate to replace it. The shrimp arrived in early stages of decomposition. I sent it back and asked for the bill and the manager. The waitress was surly and the manager was clueless. I promised to call the health department if she got sick.The evening, of course was ruined. Not an apology in the entire affair.It was my worst dining experience in 25 years of business travel. BAR NONE.STAY AWAY !!

Way above average!

from A TripAdvisor Member
We had an excellent room, excellent service, staff were immaculate and happy. Breakfasts were tasty and well served. All in all a great experience.

Great location - Great rooms - Bad concierge

from A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed for two nights in May of 2003. The hotel is beautiful and you can't beat the location - close enough to Bourbon to enjoy the decadence but not noisy at night! Also, Royale street is full of wonderful antique shops. Close to everything! The rooms were great - we stayed in the older section but it had modern appliances and GREAT beds. The pool is beautiful and the lobby bar features a revolving bar - check it out! Yes, the rooms were a bit on the small side but we had four adults and were fine - we didn't go to the French Quarter to hang out in the rooms! Overall, a very impressive hotel - we will definitely be back!One bad note - the concierge sucks. Appears to have no knowledge of New Orleans and did nothing except hand us some brochures.
You're much better off talking to the doorman or one of the local shop owners - they are much more helpful!

Paper thin doors

from TBC_Baptist
The food was excellent and so was the service, but he door of our room was paper thin. So, we were kept awake all night by some rather loud collegiate types across the hall.

Excellent Bed

from A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed at the Hotel Monteleone about a week before Mardi Gras. We chose Hotel Monteleone because it was reputed to be an upscale hotel and because of its location. It is about less than a block away from Bourbon Street. There are also many good restaurants not too far from the hotel. We even walked to the Aquarium, which is about 6 blocks away. The rooms were a little small and we only had a view of the alley, but the beds were just fabulous! I would compare their beds to the Heavenly Beds at the W hotels! Needless, to say, I slept very well.
However, their customer service, with the exception of the doormen (who were so helpful), was not very good. Their maid service was extremely loud, yelling and joking with each other from across the hall at 8:00 a.m! The Concierge was also very abrupt and seemed too busy to help.
Overall, the hotel is ideal if you're looking for close proximity to all of the fun. Still, the hotel needs to give their employees more training in customer service, which I believe is a staple in upscale hotels.

Top Local Tips for New Orleans

Expensive Parking Take the Airport Shuttle or the flat rate cab fare from the Airport. Parking will cost you almost as much as the hotel stay. Very limited parking and very expensive. Make sure your cabbie uses the meter when going around town.

Bourbon street - safe or not safe? Bourbon street is currently starting to come back to be like it used to be pre-Katrina...full of live with people having a good time. I was a bit hesitant to go to New Orleans and hang out in the French Quarter. However, after having been there once I would definitely go back again. I truly believe if you go out at night you just have to stay on the main streets (e.g., Bourbon street) and you will be okay. I went to the regular places I used to go to when I visited before and I felt safe. During the day, my boyfriend and I walked around the French Quarter alway down to the French Market and felt safe.

Favorites Best Breakfast- Brennans. Best snack/ hangout- Cafe Dumond. Best Dinner Restaurant- August. Best Music- All over! Best tip- bring your favorite walking shoes and discover your own favorite places- so much to see and do in New Orleans. We felt safe the entire trip- don't believe the media.
