Haunted Hotels New Orleans
The Hotel Monteleone has long been a favorite haunt of distinguished Southern authors and many of them immortalized the Grand Dame of the French Quarter in their works. Ernest Hemingway, Tennessee Williams, and William Faulkner always made 214 Royal Street their address while in the Crescent City. While in the Carousel Bar & Lounge, Truman Capote used to boast that he was born in the Monteleone. (He wasn’t. Though his mother lived at the historic hotel during her pregnancy, she safely made it to the hospital in time for Truman’s debut.) The list doesn’t stop there; Anne Rice, Stephen Ambrose and John Grisham also joined the ranks of literary guests over the years making our hotel the premiere destination for haunted hotels in New Orleans.
Generations of hotel guests and staff have regularly experienced haunted events that would cause even the staunchest skeptic to take pause. This haunted hotel in New Orleans has a restaurant door that opens almost every evening and then closes again, even though it is locked. An elevator that stops on the wrong floor, leading a curious couple down a hallway that grows chilly and reveals the ghostly images of children playing. Hotel Monteleone is known for being one of the premier haunted hotels in New Orleans.
This historic New Orleans landmark is a member of Historic Hotels of America. The hotel boasts 19 meeting and reception rooms, 570 newly renovated rooms and suites, 2 Award-Winning restaurants, the famous Carousel Bar & Lounge, Logo Shop, heated rooftop pool, SPA Aria, state-of-the-art exercise facility, and valet parking.
It’s been said that the French Quarter begins in the lobby of the Hotel Monteleone. And in fact, this venerable establishment sits majestically at the foot of Royal St. giving guests the best point of departure for all things New Orleans. Visitors need only step outside this French Quarter hotel to discover shop after shop of fabulous European antiques, estate jewelry, Oriental rugs, and art and antiquities from around the world. Quaint restaurants and specialty shops line the cobblestone French Quarter streets that lead to Jackson Square, the Old French Market and the Riverwalk where tourists and native New Orleanians stroll the levee and watch the steamboats and barges along the Mississippi River. At this New Orleans hotel you’ll find history around every corner.
