This summer in New Orleans was HOT – and we’re not just talking about the weather! Many festival-lovin’ partygoers came and went through Hotel Monteleone’s lobby doors this summer, so we wanted to take some time to highlight the best of the best! Sad summer is coming to close? Luckily, we are continuing our fabulous summer rates until September 19th with many fall events still to come!
We kicked off the summer with the Ultimate Girls Getaway Weekend: FestiGals! As the host to this incredible and empowering event, we were able to witness enlightening seminars, hear from inspiring female speakers, and check out some of the most bodacious bras ever to be designed! Now that all the glitter has been swept away and the pink has toned down, we’ll have to put away our boas until next year!
Tales of the Cocktail
Ah, Tales of the Cocktail… perhaps Hotel Monteleone’s most prized festival. This year we saw an incredible array of the nation’s top mixologists, liquor brands, and cocktail enthusiasts alike. There was the Bloody Mary Bar with ingredients straight from of the garden, baby alligators alongside freshly mixed cocktail concoctions, and a snack bar offering delicious drinks and treats to satisfy any TOTC craving. This year was a huge success – and we expect no less of next year!
