Olive Branch, Mississippi
Reviewed 2 September 2016

I really enjoyed my stay. The hotel is updated but kept the classic details of the bank and era to make it unique from a chain hotel. I loved the convenient location. We were able to walk to the Superdome and other popular tourists areas such as the aquarium mall and to meet for our tour.

Good hotel good location, very close to the French quarter. The bed was too soft for my back, but everything went fine. Definitely would recommend it to my friends. The room was fine and clean, and the hotel looks beatiful

I stayed a few nights here and found this to be the best hotel I have stayed at in New Orleans. A short walking distance to the French Quarter and stadium, the hotel was in a safe area and after many weeks of traveling I was happy with a comfy bed! Recommend for all types of travellers.

The overall comfort of this hotel is great. The staff was nonchalant and the valet parking is the worse I ever seen. Took an hour and a half to get my car. The hotel wasn't crowded so I didn't understand what the problem was.

The Whitney hotel was clean and very convenient location....good value for price paid in a last minute booking. Was not able to get restaurant or bar service during my very short mid week stay. Would stay again for appropriate price.

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.
