Remember the scene where the ladies returned from their wild night out and Malik (Kofi Siriboe) greeted Lisa (Jada Pinkett-Smith) with a rose? They were in the lobby of this hotel.

In the movie, the ladies didn't waste any time hitting Bourbon street to grab a few hand grenades and you'll definitely want to do the same with your crew when you arrive for ESSENCE Fest!

Anyone who's been to New Orleans will tell you that the carousel bar located in hotel Monteleone is a MUST! Even the Flossy Posse had to stop by for a drink, right before Dina (Tiffany Haddish) confronted Ryan's (Regina Hall's) husband....and his aunt.
