I wasn't sure what to expect when I booked this hotel, seeing as it was such great value for the location. However, it really exceeded my expectations. It was very clean, comfortable, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. What I loved about this hotel was the history of the building and the wonderful renovations that have kept all... More

The staff was excellent. Patrick and Earl gave us numerous helpful hints on locations throughout the city as this was our first time in New Orleans. We were right next to Lafayette Park where they had a live music concert on Wednesday night (Free of charge).

I wasn't in my hotel room very often but when I was there, the staff was very friendly. It's a little old fashioned but in a good way. Very clean! I had no doubts or suspicions. It's very close to pretty much everything. I also had an awesome view of the city.

While in town for a convention, I was displaced from the host hotel. I had the great fortune of landing in this wonderful boutique hotel in the Business District. It was walking distance to the places I was working, as well as the French Quarter. If long city blocks are too much, cabs were readily available and you could get... More

The whitney hotel is only about a 5-8 minute walk from the French quarter and dozens of restaurants. The room was clean and comfortable. My only complaint was the street noise. It sounded like someone was using a leaf blower right outside my 3rd story window every morning around 4:30. I would definitely stay here again.

The hotel is within walking distance to the French Quarter. The room was clean but on the small side. The air conditioner in our room did not work too well. We only stayed one night so we did not mention it to management. Overall we are very satisfied with our stay in this hotel.

We stayed at the whitney for a girls weekend and so glad we did. After a minor miscommunication from the booking party, they let us check in as early as possible. Hillary was helpful and the valet was on point. The beds were soft the water hot. And the restaurant down stairs was very enjoyable.we walked everywhere it was in... More

We had our annual ARA Event in New Orleans this year and for the first time stayed someplace other than a chain. I've been doing this for nearly 30 years. The Whitney is where I'll stay for ever more and never stray! A beautiful old hotel that was a bank with an exercise facility, bar and breakfast! But the greatest... More

First and foremost the staff was FANTASTIC!! Hotel was clean. Bed was comfy. No in room fridge but learned later we could have asked for one to be sent up. We were on top floor 7. You do hear some traffic noise from downtown but the hotel is 3-4 blocks from Bourbon Street. Close enough but you don't smell it.(and... More

For this trip we were looking for a place that had more of a local feel and this hotel did. I can't say that there was anything special about this hotel. Check in was fine, room was fine, bed was fine, checkout was fine. We like the general feel of the hotel, it used to be a bank, but the... More
