"This is the nicest hotel we've ever been in." That's what my nephew said when we went into our room. The wooden floors I would love to have in my own home. The beds are extremely comfortable. We didn't get to eat at the restaurant on this visit. However, last month when I was there, everything ordered from the dinner...

Very nice hotel. Well appointed lobby, great dining options, and clean rooms. The wood floor in the room was a great touch. Rooms aren't overly large (stayed in an executive King), but are plenty roomy for business travel. Loved the breakfast delivery via door hanger order process. Arrived hot and right on schedule. Hotel rates were reasonable (paid $136+tax). Valet...

My wife and I decided last minute to spend a night out and couldn't have chosen a better place downtown. The Whitehall, from what we were told, was recently remodeled and it showed.

Renovations to the hotel look great - from the revamped rooms to the "Southern Host" John dressed in his tan seersucker suite and then outdoors to the bar area that has local bands on some nights in the shadow of the buildings of downtown...
