New Orleans, AKA “The Big Easy,” conjures countless visions of the life of leisure. It’s easy to imagine gracious ladies and impeccably-dressed gentlemen sipping on a refreshing cocktails on the wrought-iron terrace of a stately old world mansion. However, this lively southern metropolis is just as synonymous with some of the most memorable and steamy films and television programs having provided a vivid backdrop for such heated melodramas such as A Streetcar Named Desire and Suddenly, Last Summer, blood-curdling supernatural tales like American Horror Story and Interview with the Vampire, as well as the gripping crime dramas Double Jeopardy or True Detective.
If there’s a beacon for the atmospheric beauty of New Orleans, it’s probably the historic, majestic Hotel Monteleone, a 19th-century beaux arts architectural jewel, compete with richly appointed guest rooms and crowned by the revolving Carousel Bar, that was immortalized in the writing of Ernest Hemingway. The Monteleone was a favorite haunt of countless other literary giants, such as William Faulkner, Tennessee Williams, Eudora Welty and Truman Capote, who adored the hotel so much he often told people he’d been born there. It’s a must-see when you visit the city.
