                      Vey beautiful roons, good quality amenities in the bathroons, marvellous bed... The lobby and the Carroussel bar are amazing!!!!

                      No breakfast includes on the rate. The staff has not the same approach with you, someone very helpfull and others not the same. Very impersonal.

                      Hotel Montelone was clean and very comfortable.

                      The pool hours, on beautiful summer nights the pool should stay open later then 10, maybe 11pm so people can enjoy the view and weather.

                      The bed was very comfortable and the whole room was beautifully decorated. The bathroom was nice and huge and the shower felt wonderful. I liked the nice big television and the fluffy robes provided for us. It was a nice and comfortable atmosphere to come back to after hanging on Bourbon Street all night!

                      The iron did not work and the refrigerator didnt work or get very cold. The price of the parking per day was the worst part of all. Parking should be free when you stay at the hotel.

                      High professional staf. Large and comfortable room. Great location. Breakfast was offered during the transformation of the restaurant. Don't miss the famous Carrousel and the pool on rooftop.

                      Price of the parking (more than 30 $!) is too high. No free wifi. A fridge but no minibar in the room.

                      My family (six adults, 3 rooms) stayed six nights at the Monteleone. We found the hotel to be a quiet, relaxing place to use in the middle of a wild nightclub area. Bourbon St was a short block away and it was great being close, but not part of the noise and partying. Good restaurants are very close to the Monteleone and so is riverwalk and shopping areas. No complaints about the hotel or its staff. You don't need a car. This is not an inexpensive hotel but it is well maintained and staffed with a great location.....Sue S

                      Top notch hotel and facilities. The front desk clerk could have been nicer, but overall it was a great stay.

                      Location.

                      We had a bad problem with people smoking on our floor and it was a non-smoking hotel. I complained several times but the staff did nothing except spray air freshener. I came home with a sinus infection from all the second-hand smoke.

                      Location, staff, service and the Carousel Bar!!!! :)

                      Enjoyed out suite, but it was pricey. Probably would not splurge on that again, but it was the only room available for our dates.

                      The rooftop pool was great! It is heated and there is a pool-side bar too. The pillows were very comfy and the toiletries smelled wonderful. The parking valets were very helpful. We had to get something out of the car twice in one hour and was very accommodating.

                      Randy managed my arrival very well. Pulled up and got out of the car, walked in and they took it from there- nice and easy.

                      Flush valve toilets are too loud. They wake others sleeping at night and splash waste water back onto the seat and floor which is pretty nasty.

                      The Hotel was Historic yet cozy. Very close to everything.

                      The entire staff was very friendly with the exception of the conceirge. He was very rude and not very helpful. When we asked hom for information he seemed like he couldn't be bothered and didn't even look at us when he spoke. We ended up asking other hotel staff for information and they were more then happy to help.
