Rooms are big and comfortable. Lights could be lighter as the room is quite dark at night. The location is very good and staff team excelent; Mr. Earl is very kind and the other members of the team as well.

I had a great stay at the Whitney. The staff were fantastic and the room was excellent! Good location, nice ambiance, clean room, safe, and very friendly staff. I'd stay again when I'm in New Orleans!

Overall the experience was awesome. I loved the suite. Everyone was super friendly from front desk staff to valet. Our car was brought around within minutes even though the garage was five blocks away. We will be back :-)

I booked a night at the Whitney to stay in after a concert in the city. It was a good room for a good price. The guy at the check-in was probably the friendliest hotel employee I've ever come across. I'd definitely stay there again.

I was in town for a hearing at the federal court of appeals, which is literally a three-minute walk from the hotel. Adding to the convenience of the location, it's an easy walk to the French Quarter as well as to the Lower Garden District, with all its great food options. I also very much appreciated how helpful and friendly...

I chose this hotel after thoroughly researching a place to stay for the Saints/ Falcons game. I wanted something conviently located and I didn't really care about premium amenities. I felt like this hotel met my specific needs and beyond. While I feel its unfair to give a complete review on somewhere I spent so little time, I will say...

We enjoyed this lovely hotel. It was nice to go to breakfast and look up and see the beautiful architectural details. The bank vault of course was extraordinary. We learned that the hotel is still attached to a working bank. The restaurant was lovely and the bacon egg and cheese croissant was fresh and delicious. The room was nice enough...

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.
