We had a wonderful experience. I i I booked the hotel online and was anxious about it since it was so affordable. It was better than I expected. The main areas and our room were clean and orderly. The staff is friendly and helpful. We will stay there again!

The interesting thing about the small hotel is the original bank vault and bank tellers' windows in the lobby. The actual bank next door is really beautiful, with marble and very ornamental moldings and ceiling. However, the suite we stayed in was oddly shaped and was showing a lack of design and furnishings. Three of us had two feet of...

Nice older hotel. Service was very good and it was in a great location. I would not hesitate to stay here again. My parents also went with us and were just as pleased. We did not eat at the hotel but were close to everything that we needed.

Really pleased with our experience at The Whitney. Loved the history behind the building. Room was very nice and and spacious. Location is far enough away from night life, but close enough for walking or catching trolley to all parts of the city.

The Whitney is an incredibly pleasant, quiet hotel and we always enjoy our stays there. The staff is very helpful and attentive. This is our second time at the Whitney, and we always find it to be a very peaceful, restful stay. it's within walking distance of the French Quarter (5-10 minute walk), but it's much quieter than the madness...

Wow! The Whitney Hotel is such a beautiful, historical hotel and it was just a quick walk to the French Quarter. The room felt luxurious and the service was great. And Earl at front desk was a gracious host. I will recommend it for sure.

This beautiful old hotel is in a perfect location for exploring New Orleans. The service was excellent, we were on our honeymoon & upgraded to a suite. We would recommend this hotel as a quieter place from which to explore the French quarter

We made reservations over the phone days before we arrived. On the afternoon we arrived they had given us a smaller room than we reserved. The staff was more than grateful to fix the problem. They gave us a bigger room and we very friendly and kind. Hotel has a lot of character, and charm.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title might suggest that this area is all about business and little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you away from the Central Business District. The CBD offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts District and Tremé, with the river at its eastern extreme, this hub for sports, gaming, shopping, theatre, family-friendly activities, and amazing regional cuisine makes a smart base wherever your interests lie.
