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.

Amazing service

I arrived at 9am given a change in flight. I explained to the manager I understood that check in was not until 3pm. He told me I was in luck, and there was a no-show the night before. He smiled, checked me in. I really appreciated the service, and warmth I received after a very difficult traveling experience.

Do not stay here! Bed bugs!!!!

I stayed here a couple of months ago, and now my house is infested with bed bugs! I did not realize it at the time, but I was getting but while I was staying there. I thought it was a rash, but now I know it was bed bug bites. I know it was this hotel for I have not traveled since, plus the "rash" started then. I am out 5000 dollars right now from exterminator costs. Don't stay here it is not worth it

Great value, Great location

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, location
Easy walk to the french quarter, WWII museum, Arts District, Superdome. Right in the middle of it all. Room was small but clean and updated. Parking garage was full, so we used valet...big mistake. Got our car back the next morning with an empty tank and 100 miles more than when we left it. The valet service is outsourced to Central Parking, so I can't blame the hotel...but I'm still not sure who had more fun in NO, me or my car?

Awesome bed, great location

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
We had an early flight into New Orleans - we called around 9am to see if we could check in early and they said they had a room for us. Once we got to the hotel though, it had disappeared, and it took several hours for another king-size bed to pop up. They kept looking though, and even made themselves a little late to a meeting to try and find one for us. The hotel was originally an old bank, and they kept a number of those details, so it was unique in that aspect. The bed was soooooo comfortable! I was almost happy that it rained for a good part of our stay because it meant I got to lay there and not have to really feel guilty about it. Also, the staff was really nice. My boyfriend had refused to bring an umbrella with him, and while the front desk had run out of their stash, the man behind the desk was kind enough to offer his own umbrella for us to make a quick trip outside! They were also very accommodating to print out Hornets tickets that my boyfriend had bought online last minute. Whitney Wyndham is in a great location too, in the Central Business District - close to The Arena/Superdome and the French Quarter, we could walk to everything. They also say they have free internet, but for some reason we couldn't get the code to work on our computer so we had to rely on our cell phones.
