Hotel Monteleone Recognized for Excellence in Hospitality

New Orleans, LA (June 1, 2016) - For the sixth year in a row, the Hotel Monteleone has been awarded the TripAdvisor Travelers Award Certificate of Excellence. This achievement celebrates hospitality businesses that have earned great traveller reviews on TripAdvisor over the past year. Certificate of Excellence recipients include accommodations, eateries and attractions located all over the world that have continually delivered a quality customer experience.

To qualify for this honor, a business must have been listed on TripAdvisor for more than one year, maintain a minimum TripAdvisor ranking of at least four out of five and surpass a minimum number of user reviews. Establishments who meet these criteria are then evaluated based on a proprietary TripAdvisor algorithm that factors in several qualifications including the quality of reviews and overall site ranking, among others.

"Consistently receiving this honor sets the Hotel Monteleone apart from other accommodations and underscores how important it is to our team to create a memorable experience for each and every guest," said Kent Wasmuth, director of sales and marketing for the Hotel Monteleone. "We are truly humbled to be recognized for our dedication to service and quality."

Since the Hotel Monteleone opened its doors in 1886, the Hotel has taken great pride in maintaining a high level of quality and service to its patrons. In fact, the Hotel Monteleone was the first hotel in New Orleans to be equipped with air conditioning in 1930 and its iconic rooftop sign has been a staple of the New Orleans skyline since its installation in 1954. More recent updates include the highly anticipated opening of the Royal Salon this summer, an upgraded wifi system in all Hotel rooms, the opening of Criollo Restaurant in 2013 and the expansion of the Carousel Bar & Lounge in 2011.
