Luxury is the name of the game at Hotel Monteleone, the historic New Orleans’ landmark whose design evokes the grandeur of bygone eras with chandeliers that drip from the ceiling, gorgeous upholstered furniture, beautiful artwork and toile draperies, and the famous sign on top of the building that fills the night sky with its sultry red glow. The legendary Carousel Bar & Lounge is a design highlight. Celebrities from William Faulkner to Rod Stewart have had a drink on the merry-go-round of a bar. The historical and literary ephemera found throughout the hotel indicate the French Quarter hotel’s importance as a cultural icon, a place that has inspired and influenced many artists, thinkers and many guests, with its elegant approach to hospitality.
