Hotel Monteleone, New Orleans LASunday, July 30, 2006
We just got back from spending the last few days in New Orleans. The Monteleone was great. We last stayed there about four or five years ago (I just like to stay at different hotels in New Orleans every time we go, because so many of them are so full of personality...not the large, corporate ones, but the ones that are small enough to be part of only a very tiny chain or are independent, like the Monteleone, where the decor matches the location).
The lobby is beautiful - the grandfather clock was made in 1909:
The rooms aren't very large, but they're just so pretty...and comfortable:
This is a daytime pic of the Carousel Bar downstairs. The seats revolve around the center bar once every fifteen minutes.
We had a great time! Here are a couple of movies that I made when we were driving up St. Charles...such pretty homes:
