Distinctive & Notable











Celebrating nearly 135 years, Hotel Monteleone in New Orleans has been proudly operated by five generations of Monteleones since 1886. The hotel’s famed grandfather clock still chimes in the lobby, surrounded by glittering chandeliers, polished marble floors, and gleaming brass appointments. Some of history’s most renowned authors were frequent visitors here, including Ernest Hemingway, William Faulkner, Eudora Welty, and Truman Capote. The hotel has often appeared as a setting in American fiction, prompting the Friends of Libraries U.S.A. to designate Hotel Monteleone a Literary Landmark. In February 2016, this New Orleans historic hotel increased meeting space from 24,000 to 25,800 sq. ft. with the addition of the new Royal Salon.
