We were expecting much more from this hotel. The size of the room was nice, but the configuration was strange (it used to be a bank). There were exposed cables and cords sticking out of the wall. There is no lobby to speak of and the cafe/bar was completely empty the entire time we were there. The walls were paper... More

The staff was nice and the property is in a great downtown location. The room I had however left a lot to be desired. It was the smallest room I have stayed in since my freshman year dorm room. I would only return if it was really cheap and the only place available.

Everything was great! The only issue we had was the smell in the room... It was almost a mix of cleaning chemical and/or incense. Otherwise, it was a great stay! We will plan another trip for sure :-)

Charming old fashioned hotel converted from an old Whitney Bank. The bank still operates downstairs. Has friendly helpful staff and close to attractions. Close to WWII Museum and Civil War Museum. If you go in August you can join one and get into the other free. Check this offer before next August. Walking distance to Bourbon Street and french quarter.

The location is everything, the hotel is in walking distance to Canal St, the Superdome, and great shopping. The hotel staff was very kind and pleasant. The room exceeded our expectations. I would definitely recommended this hotel to other travelers.

A most convenient location, walking distance to the Mercedes Benz Superdome, and around the corner is Lafayette Square filled with a grove of shady oaks. A boutique hotel, the Whitney is one of many gems from the post-Katrina restorations. Once a regal bank now a National Historic Landmark, the hotel continues its flair for details with granite, brass and crown... More

Old Bank building; Great Hotel with a fabulous New Orleans feel. I highly recommend this hotel. Easy walking distance to Canal Street and Bourbon Street, close proximity to the new Warehouse District.

When I booked, I wanted to be close to the French Quarter and yet not trip over over-exited fellow tourists. And, like most savvy travelers, I wanted value for my dollar. The Whitney gives that and then some. It is about 10 minutes away from Bourbon street and also 10 minutes to the river. If you are in New Orleans... More

Great trip! Wonderful rooms, quiet and the service was great. Wadsworth was wonderful as was all the staff. I would stay there anytime! It is a little far from the French quarter but taxi is cheep and don't have to drive yourself.

My husband and I stayed at the Whitney Hotel for our honeymoon. This hotel is a hidden treasure. This hotel is a renovated bank, that still has the vault which was super cool. The staff was very friendly and extremely helpful. Patrick and Earl not only suggested restaurants to try but also gave us complimentary drinks in the bar since... More
