NOT QUITE

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 28, 2012


How was my stay? Not quite right. Not bad, just not quite right. My bed? Not ... you get the idea. It was just mildly not comfortable enough to sleep properly. The walls were thin and then the TV went crazy and the volume couldn't be turned down. When I saw a maid and told her my TV wouldn't stop going to maximum volume - she told me my room number. Great. They knew there was a problem and did nothing about it. The room did have a steam iron, but no mini bar! Then the hotel told us the taxi would cost less than it did. Its a shame really. Its an old building and was built in 1926 as a Masonic Temple. It was redeveloped in 1992 as the Hotel Monaco, but was damaged by Hurricane Katrina. It was reopened in 2007 as a Hilton hotel.

The best part of the hotel is one of the best jacuzzis I have ever had the pleasure of soaking in. Connected to the indoor pool, its deep and hot. Very nice.

The rest of the hotel is somewhat dark and actually does not have a lot of character. Reception is especially dark.

The location is excellent. You can walk to Bourbon Street in 7-8 minutes.

All in all, I will choose another, possibly another Hilton, hotel in the future. This is not a bad hotel, but for the price I really want a room with thick walls and a great bed. The rest is all just extras to me.

This is a beautiful old hotel. Lots of marble and wood adorn this place and upon arrival in the lobby, you enter an earlier time of luxury and excess. The place is covered in marble, wood and brass. The reason for this is it was originally built as the Masonic Building in 1927 and much of the pre-Depression era decorations remain. I was told by one of the staff, that the original movie theater is still in the building, but the owners haven't decide whether to restore it and open it to guest as well the rest of the city. If you love old American art deco, then this is your 20-stories of greatness in downtown New Orleans. The staff is great, but the rooms are a little small for the price paid, but that is acceptable due to keeping it as original as possible (it recently have a multi-million dollar renovation). My only major complaint about staying here was having to pay for internet service to the tune of $12 a day in your room. I thought this was ridiculous in that the lesser hotels in this chain offer it for free. If you rent a car, parking is somewhat expensive too, but there really isn't a need to have a car in New Orleans.

Unique Quality: The food at Luke, the restaurant next door, is excellent, if a bit pricey. They have room service to the hotel and I sampled many things from the menu. You have to have the shrimp and grits or the bacon burger.....just perfect. One other great thing is that the famous St. Charles street car stops right in the front of the hotel which makes you close to everything.

Directions: Walking distance to the French Quarter

I stayed here with friends in October 2002. We were so impressed with how beautiful and funky this hotel was. Beautiful rooms complete with faux fur bedspreads, tiger striped bathrobes and Aveda bath products. There's also a nightly free wine reception which is a great way to mingle with other guests. The night we were there they even had free chair massages!

The decor in this hotel is absolutely perfect. Every inch of this great hotel is beautifully decorated. From the warm fireplace in the main lobby to your room. The staff was also great! I wouldn't stay anywhere else in New Orleans.

Unique Quality: Aveda product in the bathroom, Starbuck's coffe in your room, pet friendly hotel, optional goldfish in your room

Be Mesmerized by the Hotel Monaco

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 8, 2005

Upon entering the Hotel Monaco we were immediately swept away by the luxuriuous decor! Instantly we were seduced by the flames coming from the fireplace. As we made our way into the elevator we were greeted by the sweet melodies of New Orleans jazz. After we danced our way out of the elevator we proceeded to our room. We can only describe the room as, "Home, Sweet, Home". All the little details from the leopard print robes hanging in the closet to the faux mink bed cover made our room exquisite. The beds were very comfortable and the beautiful canopies gave it that extra touch. It was also nice that in addition to cleaning your room each day, housekeeping service would have music playing for you when you returned to your room every night. The hotel provided complimentary wine at 5:00 every evening which is a nice way to mingle with the other guests.
The Hotel Monaco exceeded our expectations. We hope you enjoy your stay as well.

P.S. Any problems that the hotel might have had with hot water have been completely resolved.

Unique Quality: Complimentary wine, leopard print robes, Aveda products, Starbucks coffee, daily newspaper, music already playing for you when you return to your room at night, pet friendly and optional goldfish in your room.

Hotel Monaco New Orleans

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 28, 2005

This hotel was great. We booked through Hotwire and got a great deal ($100 a night). They gave us a free room upgrade when asked. The rooms were very spacious, clean and nicely decorated. They have free wine and massages downstairs every evening. They're also a pet friendly hotel - you can even have a goldfish delivered to your room for your stay.

Unique Quality: Beautiful rooms & lobby. Staff was very attentive and helpful.

A stylish and affordable hotel

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on November 15, 2004

This hotel is stylish, affordable and centrally located. What more could you want! In a restored Masonic temple, the Hotel Monaco is a great bargain if you book through priceline. Try the restaurant downstairs for excellent nouveau cuisine and have a glass of complimentary wine in the lobby each night.

Unique Quality: Excellent decor!
