The Monteleone first opened its doors in 1886 and ever since has been providing memorable experiences for their valued guests. There are over 600 guest rooms and 55 suites that are elegantly appointed with amenities such as bathrooms with marble floors and granite countertops, flat-screen televisions, mini bars, and plush bedding. The guest rooms and suites, elegant as they are, comprise just one aspect of the overall appeal of the legendary New Orleans Hotel Monteleone.
Dining and drinking options are available at the Hotel Monteleone New Orleans at the Carousel Bar (which Ernest Hemingway wrote about) and the onsite restaurant. The latter is a fine dining establishment that is well known around the city for serving exquisite international cuisine including the finest in the tradition of New Orleans Creole and Cajun specialties. The Carousel Bar has a legendary reputation and is a popular destination bar for people staying at the hotel and others as well. Residents of New Orleans consistently rank it as one of the hottest bars in the city.
The rooftop, heated pool is the icing on the cake of an ideal accommodation in the French Quarter in New Orleans. The views of the Mississippi and the French Quarter are beautiful and the sun deck and pool is an excellent place to enjoy a drink and work on the tan before a night out on the town. When you stay at the New Orleans Hotel Monteleone, you are within close striking distance of many of the most popular attractions in the city. The French Quarter is just the start of it. Your exploration of this popular tourist city will likely include a survey of as many of the boutiques, art galleries, museums, and jazz clubs that you can possibly fit in. The prime location of this hotel and the easy access to tram lines and other forms of public transport put guests in prime position to take it all in without having to waste any time traveling around too much.
Despite the wide range of amenities including the rooftop pool and the expansive fitness center, perhaps the most intriguing aspect of the Hotel Monteleone New Orleans is the fact that there are a variety of suites named for authors and literary figures that stayed in or wrote about the Hotel Monteleone. Tennessee Williams ultimately bought a home in the French Quarter, but before doing so, made a regular habit of staying at the Monteleone. One of the elegantly appointed suites bears his namesake. There are other fantastic guest suites, each distinctively decorated to match the theme of the person for whom it is named. Ernest Hemingway, Truman Capote, William Faulkner, and Eudora Welty are a few of the most notable names.
