Perfect location

Posted Nov 17, 2014
Pros: The atmosphere, furnishings and staff were all wonderful.
Cons: The food in the dining was very mediocre
Location: So much was within walking distance, We took several walking tours and only took the street car to one.
We had a wonderful time in New Orleans. However it was very cold and windy, which we did not expect. Out room was too cold too.

Great Location

Posted Nov 12, 2014
Pros: Location
Cons: 24 hour dining
No real amenities other than a clean room but the location is perfect. We were there to attend a football game and check out the city and we were within walking distance to everything. The parking is $32/day and since you don't really need it from this location save the money. It is a short walk away to the stadium, the French Quarter, the WWII museum and the casinos.

Really close to everything!

Posted Nov 11, 2014
Pros: Clean, quiet, close to everything.
Cons: Didn't like the steps in the bedroom. DANGEROUS!
Location: Walking distance to shopping (Riverwalk), the French Quarter, Superdome, and casino. One block from the streetcar takes you to Audubon Park and Zoo.
I was a little concerned, looking at the map, that I was booking a hotel that would be too far away from the attractions I was most interested in seeing. This hotel is one block from St. Charles Avenue (and the streetcar). It is just a few blocks from the Morial Convention Center, the French Quarter, Riverwalk, and Harrah's Casino. The Superdome was also within walking distance. There are several restaurants and nightclubs within two blocks, and a mini market just down the street. The staff was SO nice. Very friendly and helpful. Great representation of New Orleans hospitality. The hotel was very quiet (my room faced Poydras street so you could hear traffic sounds, but nothing awful). The only downside was there were two steps leading down into my bedroom and believe me after a night on the town, disoriented in a hotel room, some one is definitely going to trip! The room was clean, the mattress could have been a little softer, but my husband loved it, so there you go. I will stay again. Had a great experience.

Great value near French Quarter

Posted Oct 27, 2014
We chose this hotel because of it's proximity to the French Quarter without the expensive price tag. I would say our experience was commensurate with the amount paid, so we had no regrets when checking out. The water pressure was low and one day I had to take a cold shower, but other than that the room was just fine. The valet service was excellent, those guys work really hard and helped with all of our local transport.

Good location for an ok hotel

Posted Oct 23, 2014
Pros: Location
Cons: Cleaniness, staff training, Wifi
Check in, check out, don't expect much from staff, keep expectations low with the room and go out to enjoy New Orleans.

Very pleasant experience

Posted Sep 22, 2014
Pros: Rooms
Cons: Valet Parking
Great experience overall. The only glitch is the valet parking - make sure to call a couple of times to get your car on time, if you really need it.

Just close to the port for our cruise.

Posted Sep 8, 2014
Pros: Location.
Cons: Better hotel clerk with better customer service matters.
Either Expedia and/or the Whitney Hotel had us thinking we had continental breakfast the next morning but we did not receive that with this stay. Also the hotel clerk was rude and very short with us and told us a debit card was declined which had m ok net to cover the $50.00 incidental. We paid cash for our one night stay. If we get another opportunity to come back to New Orleans we will stay at the Doubletree Hotel some other friends said they had good stay experience there. Expedia should not advertise amenities that are not included.

Great location.Quaint property.

Posted Sep 8, 2014
Pros: Great location, nice staff.
Cons: Electrical outlets. Larger closets.
The Whitney is a great looking hotel. It is a former bank, and there is still a working bank attached to it. It is well-located; two blocks from Canal Street, mid-way between the Superdome and the Convention Center. My room (405) was rather small, and the closet tiny. No extra linens or blanket. There was something wrong with most of the electrical outlets. Nice bathroom. They were painting the hallways when I was there, so that was a bit of a bummer.

Thank you for your candid feedback and I apologize about the hallway painting. We are constantly attempting to improve the product and while we try to stay out of the way of the guests, sometimes it's not so easily hidden. We hope you'll come back to see the finished product... I'm sure you'll love it.
