Hotel Monteleone in New OrleansHotel Monteleone in New Orleans

Overview

Hotel Monteleone is one of the last, great family-owned hotels in America, having been operated by four generations of the Monteleone family over the past century. When it was founded in 1886, Royal Street, on which it sits, was the most fashionable and elegant street in the city. The hotel’s famed grandfather clock still chimes in the lobby, surrounded by glittering chandeliers, polished marble floors and gleaming brass appointments. The legendary Carousel Bar still revolves every fifteen minutes and the elegant Queen Anne Ballroom still hosts fashionable parties and memorable events. Numerous authors, including William Faulkner, Eudora Welty and Truman Capote were frequent visitors and the hotel has often appeared as a setting in American fiction, prompting the Friends of Libraries USA to designate Hotel Monteleone a Literary Landmark.

The hotel's founder, Antonio Monteleone, was a Sicilian nobleman who was operating a successful shoe factory when he was lured by the American dream.
