Hotel Monteleone New Orleans Christmas Decorations Hotel Lobby

And we’re back for part two of our New Orleans Christmas guide! After spending the weekend exploring the city’s beautiful new Christmas decorations, we’re ready to share a few more of our favorite spots to grab some holiday action in the Big Easy.

Let us also not forget our very own lobby, named the top destination for New Orleans Christmas decorations by GoNOLA.com. We’ve lit up not only the inside but also the outside of the Grand Dame, to give Royal Street that extra holiday sparkle. And don’t forget, our special Papa Noel hotel rates are running till the end of December!

Christmas Decorations in New Orleans

One of our all-time favorite parts about Christmas in New Orleans can be found all throughout the city – holiday decorations! Many famous New Orleans establishments celebrate a tradition of beautifully decorating their interiors and exteriors. Hotel Monteleone is no exception to this tradition, filling our lobby with grand sparkling Christmas trees, and lighting up the 200 block of Royal Street. A few of our other favorite decoration spots include the mansions in the Garden District, the French Market, and the Steamboat Natchez.

  1. My husband and I have enjoyed the grand Christmas buffet prior to last year and wish to make a request for its return.

    Would there be other great Christmas buffets in the French Quarter should we visit at Christmas again – maybe at another lovely hotel?
