Since 1886, the Hotel Monteleone has provided luxury and historic accommodations for travelers to New Orleans. It’s been said that the French Quarter begins in the lobby of the Hotel Monteleone. This venerable New Orleans hotel sits majestically at the foot of Royal Street and offers valet parking with two garages. Our guests have the best point of departure for all things New Orleans. The famous Carousel Bar & Lounge in the Hotel Monteleone is a long-time favorite New Orleans hot spot. This classic New Orleans hotel bar is the city’s only revolving bar. For decades, it has lured guests in to take a spin on the 25-seat, bright circus-clad Merry-Go-Round.
