We were met by our Hosts Glen and Randy upon our arrival. They helped get us settled and gave us insight to the city, where to go and arranged transportation. Breakfasts were hot and good and Glen served us at the hour we needed to eat. The house was decorated like the turn of the century and the rooms were...

My wife and I spent the night at the HH Whitney as we explored New Orlean's French Quarter on our bicycles. We only stayed one night but it was not enough.

HH Whitney House B&B is a wonderful, charming place to spend your time in New Orleans. My wife and I just spent five nights there and would strongly recommend it. The house is a beautiful Victorian with high ceilings, very nicely maintained inside and out, and beautifully furnished with antiques from the period, so as soon as you enter you...

My wife and I had our reservations about this hotel as the cab drove up. It isn't in the best location, and the exterior was somewhat shabby (we were told later that it was being renovated). Our fears melted away as soon as we stepped in the door. The attention to detail that Glen and Randy pay to this hotel...

Our stay in New Orleans left us with many wonderful memories, especially of our time at HH Whitney House. Glen and Randy have found the perfect balance of accomodation and respect of privacy, which allowed us to truly feel at home. While some final renovations were still being done while we were there, they were careful to keep the work...
