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 the charm of the early 20th Century bank fixtures but still manages to feel welcoming and inviting. Also, the location for the price cannot be beaten. We were 5 minutes walk from the edge of the the French Quarter, and 10 minute walk to the Convention Center. My husband and I walked everywhere and felt very safe because the hotel is in such a busy part of town that it is easy to stick with the crowds. The St Charles streetcar to the Garden District stops right by the hotel so we were able to see other historical parts of the city without needing to spend money on a taxi. The only thing I cannot comment on was the food as we did not eat at the hotel restaurant. But, when you are in New Orleans, staying at the Whitney, you have literally hundreds of local award wining restaurants within 15 minutes, why would you even eat at a hotel?! Overall, I would stay here again and recommend it to my friends.
