On the Rooftop of Hotel Monteleone

A stay at the Hotel Monteleone is the definition of a romantic getaway. The rooms are gorgeously intimate, and the lobby is filled with chandeliers and ornate trim worthy of a royal palace. But if you’re looking for a marvelous spot to propose, the hotel’s rooftop pool is a Spanish-style oasis that is picture perfect.

On a Gondola ride in City Park

City Park has more than a few romantic settings, but nothing says romance like a private gondola ride. Hop aboard and get whisked away through the stunning areas of City Park in an authentic Venetian gondola.

Along the Moonwalk

With the majestic Mississippi River as your backdrop, live music filling the air, and the vibrant French Quarter just a few steps away, a riverside engagement is one you will never forget.

Aboard Steamboat Natchez

Set a course for the next chapter of your life in true New Orleans style - aboard the Steamboat Natchez, a New Orleans' authentic steamboat. Treat the one you love to an evening cruise on this beloved New Orleans icon. You can fill your night with dancing and dining, bask in the beauty of the moonlit Mississippi River, and top it all off by proposing.
