Hotel Monteleone is one of only three U.S. hotels to receive the prestigious Literary Landmark designation by the Friends of Libraries, USA, so you might say that the history of literature is an important pillar upon which our luxury New Orleans hotel finds foundation.
So many important literary figures and famous authors have claimed Hotel Monteleone as a home away from home, including, but not limited to, William Faulkner, Richard Ford, Eudora Welty, Rebecca Wells, Sherwood Anderson, and Stephen Ambrose. Just as our hotel served as inspiration to them, these authors have served as inspiration to us.
