The hotel staff was friendly our room was in perfect order. The bed was comfortable. The pillows were excellent. The Wifi worked well even in the elevator. Not much street noise. The bar and dining were great as well. The staff could not have been any better. They are working on a new menu so selections were limited. We had... 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. We had a great view, lovely suite, and visitor friendly price, which included... More

We stayed at the Whitney under a "summer in the city package" found on the New Orleans city website which made the hotel very affordable and and added free valet. The staff were incredibly friendly and accommodating. Upon checking in you receive pamphlets that list drink and food specials at other hotel bars and restaurants, a brochure listing sights and...

We stayed at the Whitney last week and had a simply wonderful experience! I didn’t realize until we checked in that the hotel is located in an old bank, which gives it a beautiful, interesting, and unique lobby area. Earl and Brittany at the front desk were incredibly friendly and helpful! They cheerfully answered all of our questions, and had... More

This was the first time I have stayed at the Whitney. I lived just a few blocks from here just a few years ago and always wondered what it looked like on the inside.

When we first arrived at this hotel, the rooms got mixed up where I booked a double room but received a queen sized room.
