The best part of this hotel is the evening desk person, Justin. We arrived with a reservation confirmation number sent by the online reservation contact. Apparently, that information didn't make it to the hotel. Because Justin couldn't find our reservation, he upgraded us to a suite. Aside from that, and the recommendations for restaurants Justin gave us, the rest of... More

We stayed at The Whitney for a weekend and had a great time. The front desk staff and valet attendants were very nice and welcoming upon arrival. We had a corner king suite overlooking Poydras. The room was very spacious. They did have some spots in the bathroom with wallpaper beginning to peel but its not that bad. We felt... More

We had corner room, that was spacious and clean. The hotel was one a bank and some of the old fixtures and fittings still remain,even the strong room with a magnificent door. The staff were attentive and made you feel welcome. From here it's an easy walk to both the French Quarter and the water front. There is a new... More

This place was fantastic through and through. I stayed in a corner suite and the view was amazing. Rooms are very spacious and comfortable. The entire staff from valet to housekeeping to front desk were the most hospitable and courteous I have ever encountered. Location was very convenient for the downtown area as well.

Lovely hotel and close to the French Quarter. Walls are paper thin, bathrooms have no ventilation and the water pressure is very low. Rooms are a very nice size, the beds are very comfortable and there are ample amenities.

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
