Awesome location - very central to the Superdome and the French Quarter. Room was as described and larger than expected - wifi worked perfect. The ladies at the bar / restaurant were the best (always ready to give advice and oozed southern hospitality), the others around the front desk a lot less so unfortunately -- felt like we were an...

The Whitney is a quaint hotel in a repurposed bank. Some of the rooms are small, and others are more than adequate so it is worth clarifying the room size on the reservation. It is centrally located next to Lafayette Square.

Beautiful hotel in a lovely location. The only critique I have is that our room was rather warm, no matter what we put the air on. Other than that, we had a great stay and I would definitely recommend this hotel.

We loved the hotel, beautiful lobby and eating/bar area along with clean well appointed rooms. Unfortunately we found the service to be average. Friendly but not attentive. Also odd breakfast/bar hours. A few small details like coffee in the lobby etc.... would go a long way.

I will never consider staying at the Whitney after my epic night of uncomfortable room temperatures and a night's sleep on the hardest, cheapest mattress I've every experienced. The hotel staff was nonexistent and are complaints were only listened to AFTER check-out.

There is a grumpy old lady at the bar. She was very slow and unfriendly. There are absolutely no munchies there to enjoy with your drink not even some nuts or pretzels. I ordered crown, kahlua and baileys (1 shot of each) and she was going to charge for three shots total and $36. Highway robbery! Most everything we asked...

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.
