Located at the foot of Royal Street, the luxury hotel boasts a one-of-a-kind carousel bar, a heated rooftop pool, and a full-service day spa. Located near Jackson Square, Bourbon Street, the French Market, and the Riverwalk, it will serve as an excellent point of department for conference attendees interested in exploring all things New Orleans.

If you’ve already registered for the conference, or if you were looking for more reasons to attend, we would like to take a moment to help you get to know the location of this year’s conference venue. The hotel’s 24 meeting and reception rooms will be the perfect backdrop for all of our exciting sessions this year.

About the Hotel Monteleone

Like the world-famous French Quarter in which is located, Hotel Monteleone has a rich history of its own. Since 1886, Hotel Monteleone has stood proudly as one of the first landmarks in the French Quarter. Today, it is a member of Historic Hotels of America – and for good reason!

The hotel is one of the last great family-owned-and-operated hotels in the city, remaining in the Monteleone family for the five generations since its opening. Through its many expansions, the hotel has been a favorite haunt of distinguished authors like Ernest Hemingway, Tennessee Williams, and William Faulkner, as well as contemporary greats like Anne Rice and John Grisham. In 1999, it was designated an official literary landmark by the Friends of the Library Association and became one of only three hotels in the U.S. to share this honor.

In addition to its rich literary tradition, the hotel is said it be haunted by its history. Generations of hotel guests and staff claim to have witnessed haunted events, and the hotel is known for being one of the premier haunted hotels in New Orleans.
