How it Ranks: Hotel Monteleone ranks #5 out of 348 New Orleans Hotels based on an evaluation of expert ratings and awards, as well as user reviews. The hotel scored high enough to make the U.S. News list of the Best Hotels in New Orleans.
Our Take: The Hotel Monteleone has boarded the who's who of American literati, including Ernest Hemingway, Tennessee Williams, and William Faulkner, to name a few. Even some of the new class (like Anne Rice, Winston Groom, and John Grisham) have stayed here for a night or two. And the hotel's revolving Carousel Piano Bar & Lounge has become an icon that features prominently in books and movies about the city of New Orleans. In other words, the Hotel Monteleone is an institution. As such, it's hard to determine whether previous guests' opinions of their stay are based on quality or legacy. Some patrons gush over the hotel's charm, while others complain of cramped rooms and a dated look and feel. Rooms include Keurig coffee makers, plush robes, and marble and granite bathrooms. And most everyone agrees that the staff here is very personable. The Hotel Monteleone sits on Royal Street in the French Quarter.
