Positive Reviews

Close to many great New Orleans attractions.

Travelers looking to soak up some of the great history of New Orleans will want to consider a stay at this hotel. Its location close to the French Quarter makes it ideal for exploring the famous Canal and Bourbon streets, as well as many other highlights.

Staff are very polite and helpful.

Hospitality is held to a high standard at The Whitney Hotel. Each member of the staff is very polite and courteous with guests, as well as being happy to help provide local information and suggestions about what to do in the area.

Property has great character and atmosphere.

The Whitney Hotel is located in a converted bank building that has a lot of history. In redesigning the property a lot care was spent to retain many of the original features - including original bank vault doors - which creates a unique hotel experience for people staying here.

Negative Reviews

Many guests find the rooms to be cramped.

Some guests feel the rooms at this hotel are a bit cramped and not very comfortable. The small rooms are especially a bother considering the price people pay for a stay here.

On-site restaurant is not a highlight.

Considering the high price of a meal at The Whitney Hotel's on-site restaurant, many people expect a better experience. The quality of the food is fairly standard for a hotel, and the poor service from staff doesn't make up for it.

Noise filters in from the busy street.

Depending on the location of the room guests receive, their stay may be restful or restless. As some of the guestrooms are located along a busy street, traffic and pedestrian noise can cause a lot of commotion late into the night.
