My son was celebrating his 16th birthday this past weekend and we spent the weekend in NOLA. I had stayed at the Whitney many times before and have always been well-pleased. And this visit was no different. From the professionalism of the parking attendant to the pleasant and professional approach of the front desk staff, to the hard-working housekeeping staff,... More

My neighbor and I decided to drive over to Nawlins just for a few days as a Christmas treat to ourselves. Every hotel she suggested was way over my budget...so I started looking too. Just could not justify approximately $200 each per night, including taxes and parking, for rooms we would only be sleeping and showering in. I saw where... More

Had an all-day meeting along the 600 block of Poydras and got a great rate at the Whitney (which was located just across the street from the meeting). Very pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness, wonderful staff and comfort. Room wasn't large (got a king) but had all of the necessary amenities. Will definitely stay here again.

The Front desk staff at check in and check out had great customer service. The room was clean , decor was nice. Bed was comfortable and I liked the alarm clock because I was able to connect it to my iPad to listen to music. Overall great stay!

My family stayed at The Whitney for a sporting event for my son. The city was packed and parking was a definite stressor. The hotel was beautiful and very comfortable.

This was my first time in The Whitney Hotel and New Orleans alike. Both proved to exceed my expectations. From the minute I entered the hotel's lobby, with its large brass vault door and high ceilings—relics from its days as a bank—I felt comfortable, welcomed. Behind the reception desk a bank teller window still remains, the staff joking that people... More

A good old world style hotel, This is not one of the newly built scyscraper hotels but part of the former Whitney Bank and the old Safe/vault is on open display by the hotel reception. Friendly staff and clean. Centrally located (Poydras Street) for easy walking to main attractions in New Orleans.
