Travel, Lodging & Shipping


Hotel Monteleone in the heart of the French Quarter is just steps away from all the attractions, restaurants, and shopping for which the French Quarter is famous. Since 1886, Hotel Monteleone has stood as one of the first landmarks in the world-famous French Quarter. This New Orleans historic landmark is a member of Historic Hotels of America.

Renovated in 2013, the hotel boasts 570 guest rooms and an experienced, award-winning staff. Each guest room offers in-room safe, refrigerator, complimentary high-speed Internet access, large-screen cable television, iHome audio system, phone with voice mail, coffee maker, and more. Guest rooms feature high ceilings, crown molding, and traditional decor.New-Orleans-Hotel-monteleone-carousel-bar-New-Carousel-Bar

Hotel Monteleone is one of only two hotels in the United States to receive the prestigious Literary Landmark designation, by Friends of the Library Association. The hotel’s Carousel Piano Bar and Lounge has been designated Best of City by National Geographic Traveler.


The ACE Conference group rate, single or double occupancy, is $179 (not including tax, currently 14.75 percent, and $2 occupancy fee). This rate is available until May 11, 2017, or until the block is full, whichever occurs first. Internet in guest rooms is complimentary.

The room block is full for the nights of June 13, 14 and 15. A limited number of preferred guest rooms is available through Monday, May 15 or until those rooms are sold. Preferred room rate is $209 plus tax.

Reservations must be guaranteed by one night’s deposit or a major credit card. A method of payment is required when making your reservation. If you need to cancel your hotel reservation, you must do so 72 hours or more prior to arrival to avoid being charged for the first night’s room and tax.
