“Perfect night out!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We are local and we're looking for a place just for the one night. We had a suite, which was very spacious and just perfect for two couples getting ready for a costume party!!! Great location and very friendly staff!!!

My boyfriend and I just wanted to get away for one night and it was short noticed but found a good deal at The Whitney Hotel. We got arrived with no problems, the valet guy was super nice and took care of our car and bags. We checked in, the front deak clerk was super friendly telling us about places if we have time to visit. But we were only there for one night and we were hitting Boubon Street. The location from the hotel to Bourbon Street was not that far, was very impressed with that. Once we were back at the hotel we lost out hotel card but the lady was very understanding and got us a new one. The next day we were checking out, and thinking we got everything but come to find out we didn't. About 45 mintutes after we left we receive a phone call From Patrick the Guest Service Manager asking if I had forgotten anything, not knowing if we did he menetion something about money and my boyfriend looked and noticed that he didnt have all his money. Patrick asked if we knew the amount because him and 2 of his staff memebers counted it to make sure the number matched up. And it did, if it wasnt got the housekeeper cleaning behind the tv we would have never recieved our money back. That is great customer service and very grateful they found out money. Next time we plan another visit we plan on staying at The Whitney again.

The Whitney was very nice. The people who worked there were awesome and very helpful. The rooms were very clean and very big. The location was great, right down the road from everything. Everything is in walking distance of The Whitney. I think every time i go to NO now ill stay at the Whitney.

A stroll away from the French Quarter and the Mississippi River. Close enough to be a part of the vibrant magic of the city and all it's offerings yet far enough away to get a good nights sleep in their comfy beds. Rested and ready to experience more incredible music, amazing food, plenty of booze and southern hospitality. The price was reasonable, the staff friendly and helpful. Would recommend The Whitney for anyone looking to have a cheap and cheerful stay in NOLA.
