I loved this hotel. It is very safe and secure with many services and shopping in the immediately area. I will stay there again. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel is very central.

Wanted a weekend getaway and decided to stay at The Whitney. Check in was fast and easy. Went from pulling up to door to being in room in 10 minutes. Beautiful clean room. Wife is a clean fanatic so first thing she does is check everywhere even under bed. Could not find anything. Location was perfect, within walking distance of... More

I wasn't sure if I had made the right move after seeing the results of my HotWire reservation. I wanted to be in the heart of the Warehouse District (stayed there before), but The Whitney was closer to the business district. However, as it turns out, one of the most compelling reasons you should consider this hotel, IS the location.... More

Stayed here at the start of the year for a Contiki and had the most amazing room two large beds in two separate rooms for me and my cousin with a beautiful bathroom and the service from all staff was amazing.

We arrived on 26 August and departed on 29 August. The hotel is relatively quiet, situated in what was an old bank. Staff are friendly and helpful. We both suffered from Sinus, not sure if the carpets are regularly serviced?? Close to Canal Street and the Street Car line. Party of two were each charged for the duration of stay... More

Charming hotel that would suit 2 people just fine 1-2 blocks from Canal Street, which borders the French Quarter. I was leary when I booked that it might be too far from the French Qtr, but it's not at all. It is in the business district. The rooms are very quaint and small, but very elegant feeling. Staff were friendly.... More

The hotel was originally a bank. The restaurant is now what was the main tellers area. The vault is a private dining room. The service was excellent. The room was a tad bit small but served us well. New cherry finished furniture was a nice touch. I actually left my iPad and charger behind. When arriving home days later I... More

We stayed here on our one year anniversary trip to New Orleans. The hotel is a old bank that was converted. The rooms were very large, clean, and the windows opened so you could hear the sounds of the city, while still being far enough away from the French Quarter to sleep quietly. Only a few short blocks from the... More

as far as the hotel itself everything was pretty good.. BUT.. as we was checking in they pretty much talked us into using the valet service because of how convenient they made it sound.. So we did and gave them our keys.. Well several hours later as we're walking in the French Quarter area..all of a sudden we see our... More

I'm sorry to hear about your issues with valet but the parking company has accounted for your vehicle's location the whole time while it was in there possession. Additionally, two attempts to get you to file a police report resulted in the police leaving the hotel without a report because you could not be located. As a measure of hospitality,... More

We were taking advantage of the "Summer in the City" offer and found this to be a great choice. We were attending a concert performance at Harrah's Casino, so you could not beat this location, two blocks away. We wish all hotel staffs would be this pleasant.
