Great stay for a 4 day vacation. Close to walk to the French quarter but much more quiet than in the quarter for a good break from the action. Also close to the river walk, casino and places to eat. Unique lobby as space used to be a bank. Hotel staff were good and friendly.

Beautiful hotel although we had no window in our room. The room was not ready at check in, they said they would call when it was ready and never called. No information about the hotel was given at check in. Had to ask about fitness room and restaurant. Was given wrong hours for restaurant. When we did go to restaurant...

Restaurant was not avail for dinner/drinks and not told before. Parking was to be included and was going to be charged until I complained. Not as close to attractions as the site made it seem and wanted to walk but had to walk much farther than expected. Ate breakfast there it was not worth the price at all. Not any...

The Whitney is an old hotel, with a very limited staff. We stayed there for 7 nights, when arriving there were no bellhops to be found. Turns out they only have one bellhop on duty at a time. Even when he was on duty, several times he was on his cell phone, one time he was on the guest computer...

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.
