The Whitney was very nice. The people who worked there were awesome and very helpful. The rooms were very clean and very big. The location was great, right down the road from everything. Everything is in walking distance of The Whitney. I think every time i go to NO now ill stay at the Whitney.

A stroll away from the French Quarter and the Mississippi River. Close enough to be a part of the vibrant magic of the city and all it's offerings yet far enough away to get a good nights sleep in their comfy beds. Rested and ready to experience more incredible music, amazing food, plenty of booze and southern hospitality. The price... More

The hotel is conveniently located, within walking distance to the French Quarters and about a block away from the St. Charles Streetcar. The room was large and with an equally large bathroom. The bed comfortable and the staff friendly. The only downsides are the 'health club' which is a small room with a few machines and the bistro, which has... More

I had the pleasure of staying at The Whitney Hotel while on a business Planning retreat. It's a very nice boutique hotel. The fact that it's set inside of an old bank and they've kept the characteristics like the vault, which now houses a small conference room and the main bank/teller area where "Bistreaux at The Bank" Restaurant is located...

Had a great experience at the Whitney. There were computer problems in the area and the very kind desk clerk Earl called to,let us know when the room is ready. Close proximity to the WWII and confederate museums, and just around the corner from the infamous 544 Camp street offices of JFK infamy. Nice room. Quiet and away from the... More

We have probably been by the building a dozen times and didn't realize it was a hotel, but while searching for a convenient location for the night The Whitney popped up on the search. We decided to give it a try and were glad that we did. The historical building is beautiful, rooms are clean, spacious and well appointed and... More

I love this hotel! The fact that it used to be an old bank is so amazing, and the way they have kept it is just amazing! I love the vault meeting room! Just ugh! I appreciate when people preserve history! If you are lucky you may nab a room that had two bedrooms divided!

We recently had the opportunity to travel to New Orleans and we chose to stay at the Whitney based on user reviews, location, and price. The room was very nice and was really clean. The hotel was well decorated. The one big call out I have is that the restaurant accepts room charges and cash only!? As a rule, I... More
