Why Stay At Hotel Monteleone
Bayou-bound travelers seek out this family-run New Orleans landmark for its central French Quarter address, just steps from the carriage houses and ironwork galleries that line Royal Street.
The romance of NOLA's bygone eras prevails in the historic Hotel Montelone's white-marble lobby, where the chimes of a 1909 hand-carved mahogany grandfather clock have kept time for the century's most notable politicians, writers, and actors. The Beaux Arts-inspired building's gold-tinged rooms offer a touch of Southern hospitality with antique furniture, gilded mirrors, and ornamental moldings. But to truly feel at home, order a Sazerac at the revolving Carousel Bar—a 25-seat den that has hosted the likes of Ernest Hemingway and Truman Capote—and listen as regulars spin tales of voodoo priestesses, haunted alleys, and jilted lovers.
Indulge in a personalized massage, hydrating pedicure, or aromatherapy treatment at Spa Aria, or take a dip in the heated rooftop pool.

Why We Love New Orleans
