The overall comfort of this hotel is great. The staff was nonchalant and the valet parking is the worse I ever seen. Took an hour and a half to get my car. The hotel wasn't crowded so I didn't understand what the problem was.

The Whitney hotel was clean and very convenient location....good value for price paid in a last minute booking. Was not able to get restaurant or bar service during my very short mid week stay. Would stay again for appropriate price.

We were upgraded to a suite, as we were on our honeymoon! It was a beautiful hotel and the room was spacious! It felt very homey and comfortable. The price was great too! It was Right in the middle of downtown and was within quick distance of everything!

My husband and I got into town early for the race and wanted to valet our car so we didn't have to move it after the race. The hotel not only let us valet early, but also let us check in early with an upgrade to our room! The room was clean. Bed was comfortable. We ate lunch the next... More

I will never use this hotel again. It was dirty, smelled like mold, no manager to speak to, billing was screwed up, and the restaurant wasn't even open. The gentleman who checked me in was extremely friendly but flat out misinformed me about the card for incidentals. My company booked the room and they put the entire charge on my... More

The room was most comfortable, so well presented and in an excellent location within walking distance to most attractions. All the staff from reception, concierge, dining room and bell hop were so pleasant and helpful. I would not stay anywhere else in New Orleans. Thank you Whitney Hotel.

It's outrageous that the hotel thought I wanted to send a bag of socks, t-shirts and tops to the cleaners! I asked for laundry service. This cost me some 370 USD. I tried to get ahold of the general manager but with no success. I've been robbed! We had been traveling for a while on the states living out of... More

I'm sorry to hear about your issue with the laundry. I responded to your email the day I received it but haven't heard back from you. In that email, I broke down the laundry bill for you, even supplying the itemized invoice from the laundry company. The laundry service dry cleaned only some (12 pieces) of your laundry and those...

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.
