The Magic of the Holiday Season is Coming to Hotel Monteleone

Children's holiday parties, caroling students & special room discounts mean the holidays are finally here!

New Orleans, LA (November 13, 2012) - The holiday season is a wonderful time of the year at Hotel Monteleone. From a festive Children's Holiday Party featuring our loving mascot Monte the Lion and local school choirs singing familiar holiday carols to a delightful Reveillon menu and prix fixed Broadway menu, Hotel Monteleone invites its guests and local New Orleanians to join in the merriment of the season.

As an exclusive Yuletide treat, Hotel Monteleone is offering special Papa Noel room discounts from November 18th through December 27th with savings varying from 20% off the selling rates on weekdays and 15% off selling rates on weekends; all rates are based on availability and blackout dates do apply.

"The holiday season is always an exciting time of the year for Hotel Monteleone employees and guests," said Kent Wasmuth, director of sales and marketing for Hotel Monteleone. "We are especially excited to display the holiday décor in our new Food & Beverage outlets, particularly Criollo Restaurant. This Christmas season, we're particularly looking forward to having locals and guests participate in all of our festivities as we have so many great reasons to celebrate."

This holiday season, the Hotel Monteleone is excited to offer the following events:

Deck the Halls of the Hotel Monteleone
