The room was beautiful and comfortable.

Posted Mar 26, 2015
Pros: The room was comfortable and quiet.
Location: We walked to every single thing! Riverwalk was close by, canal street was close by. We walked to the WWII museum. We did a tour that picked us up.
The room had everything we needed from iron to hairdryer and nice magnifying mirror in bathroom. Loved the lotion! Bed was extremely comfortable. Staff was extremely helpful with advice about places to eat and places to visit and the best way to get there.

Pros: everything...even the period correct 'slow' elevator rides.
Cons: not sure
Location: located in the middle of 'main street' NOLA...close to soooo many things, it would be easier to tell you what wasn't close by.

The hotel is convenient to the French Quarter and the Convention Center. In general, it does not provide much in amenities, but it was clean and quiet. Our room had a broken vent fan, not a big deal in February but may be in summer.

Not that we were trying to play tennis or swim on this trip...but this is what amenities the hotel advertised!! Glad I didn't carry my raquets!!! Room service would of been nice as well!!! But, all together didnt need anything more than a roof to cover our heads for New Orleans!!!

Close enough to the city center, nice hotel!

Posted Feb 24, 2015
Pros: The history of the hotel, not to mention it's in close proximity to the city center.
Cons: The bathroom could use a serious update. Wall outlets were pretty much non-existent.
Location: Harrahs, close to shopping, great restaurants nearby
Overall, a great experience. Paltry room service which you have to pay in cash, not to mention no menu. The room was probably a serious fire hazard because there were minimal outlets as the other outlets had cheap extension cords on them hiding underneath the bed. I would recommend the hotel.

Beautiful hotel that still needs some work

Posted Feb 24, 2015
Pros: The Whitney is beautiful--the beaux arts style at its finest. The staff are friendly and helpful.
Cons: Fix the card readers/card magnetizer, improve the room lighting, and dramatically improve the food.
The electronic card readers in the doors were a cause of constant frustration. Our cards had to be re-magnetized four times in three days. It is a pain in the neck to go up and down the elevator at all hours to repeatedly do this. When we asked the hotel staff about this, they indicated that the cards "are designed to easily de-magnetize." The Whitney needs to find a new design. We have stayed in hotels in 20 states and seven different countries and de-magnetization of door cards has simply never occurred with such frequency. The hotel's breakfast was low quality and over-priced. The food had no taste, the coffee was terrible, and breakfast cost considerably more than we paid at a restaurant only three blocks away. Although the hotel is beautiful, the rooms still need a little work. Our bed was very comfortable and the room was spacious and clean. However, the layout of the room was awkward--a long L shape--and was poorly lit, even with all of the room lights on.

The hotel was definitely cute. I think it used to be a bank so they had the remnant vault doors. That was pretty cool. I believe I also remember reading it was part of a New Orleans hotel collection. The rooms were quaint and made me feel like I was staying in New Orleans, rather than some chain hotel that happens to be in New Orleans, so it definitely did well for the atmosphere. Heating and cooling seemed a little iffy, but that may have been due to the fluctuating weather outside during our stay and the single-panel windows. The concierge did not provide much information when we checked in, so we assumed we had no wifi until we tried the code written on our key holder and voila! She also did not mention how much charge would be held on my card until they assessed for room damage so I had to find that out on my own when I checked my account that evening. However, she did redeem her hospitality points on our check out. She called a taxi for us because she said it would be cheaper than us taking the shuttle, considering the size of our group. TLDR; I was pretty happy with it.

Good location, comfortable beds. Needs bigger tvs, a refridgerator, better coffee maker, and a better clothes situation.....no closet just a small dresser
