These pages are filled with early historical accounts of the French Quarter and the hotels visionary creator, Antonio Monteleone, but they are also packed with humorous memories from notable authors like Richard Ford, Tennessee Williams and Eudora Welty. From Liberace to Louis Prima, from the Swan Room to the famous Carousel Bar, music and celebration are woven in the fabric of this hotel and its story as much as in the town of New Orleans itself. This book is another form of celebration. Its a testament and a thank you to the cast and characters that have all helped shaped the Hotel Monteleones years of amazing history.
