I enjoyed my 4 night stay during the Essence Festival. Perfect location. Thank you to the hotel staff for making sure my lost bag was returned to me via FedEx. Would definitely stay again in the future!

Room Tip: I would suggest a room on the back side. Front windows need to be made sound proof from the traffic.

We stayed at the Whitney Hotel for the 4th of July weekend. The hotel staff is friendly and it is conveniently located ---everything is within walking distance. The accommodations were adequate; rooms were clean but the Superior King Room was a little tight to move around in. Price was high due to the season. With all that being said, I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Executive King may offer more space.

We stay at the Whitney when we're in New Orleans for a weekend get-away. The staff is courteous and welcoming. The wait staff in the lobby restaurant are attentive and knowledgeable. The lobby area is especially interesting because of how old, but well kept it is. The old Whitney Bank motif has been maintained, so it's got great historical appeal. The rooms were comfortable and the convenience to everything worth seeing in the New Orleans CBD, Warehouse/Museum District, and French Quarter can't be beat for the price.

Thanks Whitney staff...y'all will be seeing us again!

Room Tip: Request corner rooms facing Poydras for a larger space. Request rooms in the 'back' for a q...

We stayed the weekend of July 4. It happened to be Essence Festival Weekend (hence this room for $300 was the only one available). For future reference - Essence Weekend is always the weekend after 4th and it is a HUGE Festival (25,000 people). Hotel was fine and the staff was good.
