Hotel Monteleone, New Orleans - Louisiana
When I first moved to New Orleans in 2007, I lived in the French Quarter and the Hotel Monteleone was the view from the little place I rented in the D.H. Holmes apartment building. Every night, the sign reflected its red light on my bedroom wall.
I now have a closer relationship with the Hotel and its sign. Getting to enjoy the Hotel Monteleone from my apartment’s balcony was a prelude of learning, understanding and working under “the sign on the roof.”
