We stay at the Whitney when we're in New Orleans for a weekend get-away. The staff is courteous and welcoming. The wait staff in the lobby restaurant are attentive and knowledgeable. The lobby area is especially interesting because of how old, but well kept it is. The old Whitney Bank motif has been maintained, so it's got great historical appeal.... More

We stayed the weekend of July 4. It happened to be Essence Festival Weekend (hence this room for $300 was the only one available). For future reference - Essence Weekend is always the weekend after 4th and it is a HUGE Festival (25,000 people). Hotel was fine and the staff was good.

We visited this hotel over MDW 2014 and it was great. Check in was easy. The room was clean and service was just fine. My only complain, no one was around to let us know where to park/valet the car. My boyfriend had to go across the street to another lot and park there because valet never showed up after... More

We enjoyed our recent stay at the Whitney. The room we had was excellent and the location is ideal. Close to the French Quarter and a block from Canal Street. Very convenient. The staff were very helpful also. I must say that we had a quick breakfast one morning and it was pricey. I don't know about other meals at... More

Have stayed here before, best stay yet. The customer service was phenomenal! Very helpful and accomodating with changes to itenerary prior to stay; offered to move us to a larger room to allow extra space for baby crib; and helped resolve a billing error. Rooms are a little dated, but undergoing complete renovation currently. Parking is a good deal for... More
