We all know that there are tons of things to do in New Orleans. However the most important thing for me is where to lay my head at night. For myself it was the Wyndham-Whitney Historic Hotel on Poydras. From the moment you entered the building you begin to see the previous history of it as a large and opulent bank. From the huge safe door that is displayed proudly in the open position so that you can see the inner working of the door and locks to the check in area which was once a tellers area.
This Hotel is a great slice of history. It has that cozy and warm feel of the past that has been updated and made into a very nice place to stay. If you are looking for a jacuzzi tub, modern brash paint schemes etc, this may not be the place for you. However if you want a place that in itself is a destination and makes you feel comfortable from as soon as you walk in then stay at the Wyndham Whitney.
