The hotel is not your typical hotel. It's an old band, with the vault still visible. If you are looking for a 21st century hotel, this isn't it. If you want to feel valued, this is the place.

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
