As it was our first trip to the US and thus to New Orleans, my DH and I wanted to stay somewhere special. HH Whitney was special, romantic, unforgettable and full of old-world charm. We stayed in the garden view room and spent evenings enjoying the view of the pool and jacuzzi. Glen, our host and owner of the house,... More

Came across the house when walking down Esplanade, I was invited in for a quick tour by Randy, one of the owners. He invited me to sit by the pool and offered me something to drink, whatever I wanted. He went out of his way to locate a phone number of a distant relative I knew lived in New Orleans.... More

We came to New Orleans with a large group of friends who were staying in the house across the street, and by the middle of the trip, they were all wishing they could have been at the Whitney House with us. The house is beautiful and well-maintained, and Glen and Randy are super gracious and super helpful with information and... More

We chose to stay at this B&B because it was affordable. We stayed four nights. Glen was a very good host and has the best recommendations (all mapped out) for anything you are looking for. Breakfast every morning is a great perk as is the complimentary water and soda in the mini fridge. We had a few events in the... More

So glad we got the chance to stay there--very clean and comfortable. Glen was very friendly, had a lot of really helpful recommendations, and knows a lot about the region's history. There is parking on the street or off if you drive or rent a car, and close to the french quarter if you want to walk or take a... More

This is decent value for money. Located on Esplanade Avenue, HH Whitney House was a comfortable 25 minute walk to the French Quarter and the more recently-developed street of live music establishments, and run by experienced owners who have been welcoming guests to New Orleans for a long time. The house itself is on the rusty side. It seemed to... More

Stayed there for four nights. Am from Louisiana and have been to New Orleans on many occasions. Can affirm that this is a great location to the French quarter, city park( bike lane also) and to the Marighny neighborhood. The host Glenn is a native so he is most helpful with getting around if one needs help. This is a... More

The rooms and house are old, but very nicely decorated and furnished, as well as comfortable. The hosts are very friendly people and sat us down to tell us where to go and what to do, as well as recommending great restaurants. The breakfasts they made were delicious, and just the right size. HH Whitney is located conveniently on Esplanade... More

HH Whitney House is an amazing trip back in time. The house is draped in extravagance and comfort. These qualities shouldn't exist on the same plane but do here. Add to this harmony, the delicious breakfasts, the helpfulness and charm of the hosts, and the interesting location, and it is easy to understand why so many people return year after... More

We enjoyed our time in H H Whitney House. The house is beautifully decorated, breakfasts were delicious (‘small’ European sized portions, just perfect :-) and the pool was refreshing in the afternoon. We rented the small apartment in the front on the second floor. We loved sitting on the big balcony and watching people go by. Disadvantages: if the owner... More
