Location is ideal. Sits between the French Quarter and Central Business District which makes everything easily accessible.

Price was great, but not reflective of what we received for one night at The Whitney. Rooms are dated with well worn sheets. Towels, while clean, were stiff and scratchy. Mattresses are a nightmare with metal surrounding outer perimeter of mattress. You can actually hear the springs popping when you move in the bed. Our tv never worked. Night staff was courteous and friendly. We would not book this hotel against

Great stay. Great location. If you are a light sleeper, be sure to request a room on the upper floors to avoid the street noise.

The Whitney Hotel is a great value for the price. It’s a bit dated but that is reflective of this being a beautiful, historical, bank building. Room was on the small side but that seems to be the norm of the NOLA quarter area. Great boutique alternative that is pretty centrally located

It was ok

I chose this hotel because of the location as it is close to bourbon street as well as the event i was atrending. It is 2 blocks away from the mississippi river as well as all the tour start locations. The building was nice and unique as it used to be an old bank. The room was a decent size as well as the bathroom. The bathroom itself was simple but it was old. The bathroom floor had some black stains as well as the inside of the toilet. Seemed like the toilet was as old as the building. None the less it worked. While i was there housekeeping cleaned the room once out of the 4 nights that i stayed. When they did come around, they did a good job cleaning. The paint on the windows was peeling off and there was no air circulation in the room. Heating and air worked. The staff was friendly and helpful, there is a breakfast but it is just some bread and some fruit. Side note, the microwave is on the second floor near the gym. I thought it was a random spot to put the microwave instead of the eating area on the first floor. Overall it was a good hotel because of the staff.

Beware when reserving room

Pros: Location.
Cons: Display two different "suite" room types so customers can make an informed decision. I suggested this to front desk and met with indifference.
Location: In business district; walkable to Quarter, convention center, casino, "warehouse district" for good food.
Reservation was for "Premium suite, 1 queen bed". When we got to room it was two connected rooms with two queen beds and no sitting area. Only one chair to sit in. This was not what was pictured on web site: sleeping area with adjacent sitting area with sofa, chairs, etc. Front desk said they had two types of suites, and were sold out, so this is what I could have. My choice late at night was to try to find another hotel and fight with Travelocity for a refund, or accept the inferior accommodations. Beware when booking "suite". Call front desk and get a guarantee of room type. Restaurant was slow, and mediocre in quality.

Great location.

Cons: Bathroom needs renovating.
The hotel is beautiful and our room was clean but the bathroom was very tiny and in need of renovation.
