Staying here ATM & having a 'Fantastic' time. The character of the Hotel is amazing. Highly recommended & would return. Bed extremely comfortable, the little touches in the room are also 'superb'. Our staff have all being 'exceptional' too. Patrick at the front desk was very helpful, we are grateful, thank you. Hayley was also very helpful ~ thank you.... More

Very convenient location at the corner of St. Charles and Poydras St. Two minute walk to the Parade Routes. Very friendly staff, great hospitality. 15 minute walk to Bourbon Street, Canal Street and most historic/cultural landmarks in the Crescent City. Will be my hotel of choice for returning Mardi Gras.

I have stay at the Whitney many times over the past 2 or 3 years since it is located a block away from the office I have to be in for 4 days. This past visit I stayed in room 510. It was a bad experience. At the door way the carpet was loose and there was a large gap... More

On behalf of the hotel staff, please accept my apologies for the condition of your room. Your original reservation (booked through Expedia) had you reserved for a smaller queen room but we upgraded you to a suite due to the length of your stay. We would certainly never have intentionally put you in a room that you weren't satisfied with.... More

We stayed in this hotel for five nights. The room was clean and wifi anywhere available. Windows could not be opened, so (a sense of) fresh air was rather impossible to breath. Breakfast was rather ok than superb. Staff was friendly and helpful. Recommended!

Rooms are clean, valet is nice, but for the price stay elsewhere these rooms are smaller than a motel 6 and u get far less. No breakfast, small t.v, can hear people in hallway, and for $250 a nite it AIN'T worth it..

Stayed during Mardi Gras and the room wasn't ready when we arrived; however, the staff was apologetic and doing the best they could with the craziness that Mardi Gras brings. I asked for some compensation for the room not being ready, so they gladly comped the 3 days of parking. I didn't even have to ask for a manager. The... More

Stayed at the Whitney for one night while on a business trip. Room was clean and very comfortable. Location was very close to the French Quarter but outside the noise and chaos. Staff were very helpful. Can not ask for much more than that.
