Located on the world famous Royal Street, Hotel Monteleone is your gateway to the French Quarter and New Orleans, just a block from the sights and sounds of Bourbon Street and world famous Canal Street. Many of the great things to see and do are within walking distance, including the convention center. It's a great place to be, and it's easy to get here.

Hotel Overview

It has been said that "the French Quarter begins in the lobby of the Hotel Monteleone", indeed, with its positioning at the head of Royal Street just a block away from Bourbon Street, the Monteleone stands as a historical landmark in itself.

Built in 1886 by a successful Sicilian shoemaker, this striking "Beaux Arts" styled hotel takes pride in its hard earned reputation for excellence which is reflected by its host of awards, the result of four generations of the Monteleone family ownership. With its award winning restaurants, tranquil rooftop pool and famous Carousel Piano Bar - a slow revolving cocktail bar with a wild circus design; it is little wonder that the hotel was a regular haunt for American authors such as William Faulkner, Tennessee Williams and Ernest Hemingway who immortalized the hotel in his story "Night before Battle".

Take a close look at Hotel Monteleone. You'll see a hotel that combines a legendary history of hospitality with a vibrant contemporary flair and a location that puts you at the very heart of all that is the French Quarter in New Orleans.

From the Grand Lobby to the world-class cuisine to the welcoming comforts of your private retreat, this is your place in New Orleans. Family-owned and operated for over a hundred years, Hotel Monteleone takes pride in a hard earned reputation for excellence and continues to strive to provide a unique travel experience. And it shows. We recently became the first independent hotel in the country to receive J.D. Power and Associates Award for Outstanding Customer Service. A formidable array of elegantly appointed rooms and suites, first class amenities like our rooftop pool, fitness center, and an internationally acclaimed level of service make Hotel Monteleone the first choice for the discerning traveler. And our location is second to none.

We are just steps away from the Mississippi River, Harrah's Casino, the Aquarium of the Americas, the Superdome and numerous award-winning restaurants. Step over to Bourbon Street where there's always something happening, or wander down Royal Street where balconies overhang charming antique shops housed in buildings dating back to the 1700s. See the French Quarter from a buggy, the Garden District from a streetcar, or wander the galleries, antique marts and jazz clubs on foot. All the sights and sounds that make New Orleans unforgettable are at our doorstep.

Hotel Monteleone is an historic landmark in its own right and, like the Cathedral, the Cabildo and other French Quarter landmarks, it has a character all its own. Let us take care of you in New Orleans.
