A decent hotel in a good location, but nothing special. Really nice and helpful staff. For $150 though I would expect to at least have a refrigerator in my room, and the additional $35 per night to park your car is a complete ripoff. If I'd seen that in the small print I wouldn't have gone there.

Thank you for your candid feedback. We do offer refrigerators free of charge, just ask our Front Desk Agents and we'll have one brought to your room immediately. You'll also find that the cost of $32.00 for valet parking is very competitive in the New Orleans area. I'm sorry to hear that you weren't informed of that before booking with...

Good location in the Warehouse district. Valet was efficient. Try Marcella's restaurant nearby which we enjoyed our first night. The Whitney is about a 10 minute walk to Jackson Square. Our room was quiet and a good size.

Our room was very nice but the rug needed vacuuming. I also wished the bed had regular sheets instead of the comforter. The front desk staff was very helpful and friendly. It was centrally located near the trolleys stops and several restaurants as well as Harrah's Casino.

Everything about The Whitney is absolutely fabulous! The hotel is beautiful, clean and every staff member was courteous and essentially helpful with advice on places to see. The hotel is 3 short blocks to the French Quarters and only 6 to the Riverwalk and casino.

From the sales, front desk, housekeeping and all others in between the best hotel experience. This is the sixth time I have stayed in two months and I am impressed just as much on this stay as I was the first. When someone from another department such as sales assist you with checking in, that is a rare occurrence.

Rooms are big and comfortable. Lights could be lighter as the room is quite dark at night. The location is very good and staff team excelent; Mr. Earl is very kind and the other members of the team as well.

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.
