The hotel is in an old bank, and keeping the appearance of the bank safes, tellers, etc., gives is a "classy" and interesting look. The location is good. Rooms are a bit narrow, and water pressure is not strong on the higher floors (we were on the 7th - top - floor).

Beautiful building with the elegance of a boutique hotel and splendor of a five star property. Perfect for a lovers retreat. Close to the action, but on a quiet street. Friendly staff, spacious bathtub (perfect for couples), fine linens.

Large guest rooms with large bathrooms. The hotel was clean and the staff was very accommodating. One suggestion would be to place more towel racks in the bathroom to allow slightly used towels to dry. This would help to reduce the laundering costs and pollutants.

Hotel is in a beautiful building in a good location. Room was generally clean and comfortable. A/C was not quite up to the task during a very, very hot New Orleans week in July, but it wasn't terrible. The restaurant for breakfast was not very good.

My stay at the Whitney was absolutely fantastic!!! The service was fast, friendly, and above and beyond. The room was gorgeous, and immaculate. The price was amazing. The next trip to New Orleans will definitely involve The Whitney!!!

We decided to extend our upcoming NO trip the night before we were leaving. Since our other hotel was fully booked we were lucky to get a great last minute rate at The Whitney. Upon arrival we found a parking spot at a meter right in front of the hotel, which saved us on valet parking. The front desk staff... More

I stayed at The Whitney Hotel in New Orleans last week. The hotel is an old bank, and has tons of charm. It is conveniently located at the corner of Poydras and St. Charles, just steps away from the French Quarter. I have visited New Orleans many times over the years, but I have never had an experience quite like... More

Very excellent stay from start to finish phenomenal service from the staff and free access to all the events within the French Quarter. This is a must stay on my next trip to The Big Easy. Shopping is a breeze with the Riverwalk Outlet just down the street next to the aquarium which has an IMAX theater and the fee... More

This is a beautiful boutique hotel right in the thick of things on Poydras. Retrofitted into the building that was once a bank, it is a beautifully quiet throwback to another period of time. The price wasn't bad for the ambiance. I will definitely stay again.
