Well the hotel its self is picturesque and nice but... The cons; the rooms are small but you expect that in an old building. not much for amenities like snacks or drinks. Pros; Great location easy walking distance to the quarter, they have a small restaurant for breakfast and dinner but we didn't try it as we had a list... More

We brought 29 8th graders to NOLA for a week-long trip in February. The Whitney's room rates were reasonable, the staff was helpful and warm, and the accommodations were excellent. We could not have asked for a better location for our itinerary. We traveled to Tulane and Loyola, to the St. Roch neighborhood, to Laura Plantation and the National World... More

We would definitely stay at this hotel again. The location is convenient, the staff was friendly, and we felt safe in the area. We got a great deal, which was especially pleasing since we stayed during Mardi Gras/Carnival season (the weeks between January 6 and Fat Tuesday). The hotel is right next to the parade route (hotel located on Poydras... More

I stayed using Stash Hotel Points, so my stay was free - and during Mardi Gras! That made for a great value. The hotel is very charming - it is in an old Whitney Bank Building and the lobby has a lot of character. The rooms were comfortable, but somewhat awkwardly configured as is often the case in old buildings... More

Hotel was just okay. Could use a remodel. Room smelled musty. The staff at the front desk were very friendly and helpful! Great location for Mardi Gras parades! Just a hundred feet or so from St Charles Ave for the street car and parades.

We stayed at the Whitney during the first weekend of Mardi Gras. The location was TERRIFIC, if you don't mind doing a little walking. There was no need for us to rent a car. First, the hotel is right off St. Charles Street, which is on the route for the major parades. Lafayette Square is right around the corner, which... More

My husband and I recently spend 4 nights at the Whitney Hotel and had a wonderful time. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. Our room was clean, the staff was great and the location is just outside of the French Quarter in the downtown area.

We spent three nights at the Whitney Hotel. The Hotel was previously a bank, built in the early 1900's. The architecture of the building and the lobby interior is beautiful and the rooms are lovely and very well maintained. We really appreciated being allowed to check in early since we were coming off a cruise. The staff were all very... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title might suggest that this area is all about business and little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you away from the Central Business District. The CBD offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts District and Tremé, with the river at its eastern extreme, this hub for sports, gaming, shopping, theatre, family-friendly activities, and amazing regional cuisine makes a smart base wherever your interests lie.
