This was our first trip to New Orleans and we couldn't have picked a better place to stay. The Solarium Suite was great. Plenty of space for relaxing and sleeping. The porch swing on the front gallery was a great place to sit with a bottle of champagne and watch the rain coming down. Glen was a wealth of information... More

Our first trip to New Orleans was amazing thanks to this great B&B. After booking off their website I received immediate correspondence from Glen outlining everything I needed to know about arriving in New Orleans and getting to their property (including how much a taxi would cost) so we had absolutely no surprises. Once we arrived Glen sat down with... More

Our first visit to New Orleans and HH Whitney was the best New Orleans welcome you could want. Glen was inexhaustable in his local knowledge, current and historical. Recommend the Scarlet O'Hara suite.

Our wonderful host greeted us with southern hospitality. We felt very special and at home in this grand old home. Glen and his daughter Randi-amelia are very special to us now. We will back, love you guys, you to Randy. Mr. Brad and Miss Vicki ;)

Glen and Randy were both very welcoming and ensured that we had a great time. This was the first B&B that we have stayed in and we are glad that we did, it was beautiful. The home had old world charm, breakfast was great, the hosts were fun and we were a short cab ride from the French Quarter. Thanks... More

Stayed here for the Scarlett O'Hara room. Loved it. Pool area beautiful. Welcoming host. Freshly cooked breakfast with other guests. Host helpful with advising routes where to eat/visit etc. We don't mind a walk...so easily managed the walk to the French Quarter. Loved it!

Charming B&B, wonderful food, and amazing company/host. My husband and I were so pleased by our recent stay at HH Whitney. I literally left with a tear in my eye as I felt I was leaving family. The garden suite was perfect and the pool a definite plus for the city. It was so nice to not have to pay... More

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
