Hotel Monteleone is located at 214 Royal Street, between Iberville and Bienville streets in the heart of the French Quarter. You might notice the tiled Monteleone crest in the entryway to the art gallery located on the corner of Royal and Bienville. That’s because Sicilian nobleman, Antonio Monteleone, the founder of the hotel, once ran his shoe factory at that very location. Most guests find it easy to get around on foot because the hotel is within walking distance of numerous attractions, including Bourbon Street, iconic restaurants such as Galatoire’s and Antoine’s, Jackson Square, the French Market, the Mississippi River and more. Though a beautiful stroll on horse-drawn carriage or a ride in a pedicab are perfect for putting your legs up. The Canal Street car line is also within walking distance of the New Orleans hotel, if you want a quaint ride to City Park, the Garden District or all the way Uptown.
