Location to the French Quarter
Desk staff checking in was rude and there isn’t free breakfast
Location was fine.
House keeping banged doors all the time. Street noise was excessive and they were painting the interior walls etc. you could smell the fumes
The bank is nice, the hotel is not.
The discounted price was good; however, we quickly realized that after having the heater broken within the room it was absolutely not worth the discount price much less the full retailer price.
The breakfast was not warm, much less so continental, and the room provided had a broken heater.
Good location, great value.
The rooms were nice, nothy fancy, but nice. We were upgraded to a top level suite, a great surprise. Perfect location. Easy for Uber and taxis, but a few blocks out of the zoo of the French Quarter.
There is potential if they redo the bar and restaurant to a more lively spot.
Room was too small
Location, it was central
Room was small and outdated Facilities non existent Restaurant was meh
The architecture, design, choice of furnishings and keeping the existing bank for a backdrop is a nice touch. The room (610) was quite nice and comfortable. The staff were all very professional but Jo Ann in the bar was wonderful. The only improvement possible would be the in-hotel restaurant. To be quite frank, the quality was not so good and the portions small when compared to every other place we dined in and around the French Quarter of equal or lesser price. Your meal pricing (we first tried breakfast and then stopped-) was also at the top of the cost range we experienced in and outside the French Quarter. Had the quality and quantity been better we would have happily spent more time in your restaurant. In our opinion, correct this and you'll have the perfect hotel.
We just expected a little better than what we got.
Expected the sweet to be a little sweeter
The bed was extremely uncomfortable.
Clean and comfortable room that was a great value for the money.
Very helpfull people, very clean, and perfect room
All is perfect
Would Stay Again
Location, Value, Staff. We walked to the Riverwalk Outlets, Dragos, Harrahs Casino, Aquarium. We got a cab ride to the French Quarter and Bourbon St. The hotel was very clean and the suite was very spacious with 2 TV's. I loved the rich history of the building. It was originally a bank and still has the vault, teller service windows, etc on the lobby.
VERY noisy. I could hear a lot of hallway noise. Also, it may have just been the night we stayed (Thursday) but at 4:30 AM the city came down Poydras to empty the dumpsters (very loud) and it woke the toddler (sigh). That can possibly be chalked up to wrong place, wrong time but just be aware if you're staying on a Thursday night. Parking was too expensive but to be fair that's ALL hotels in the area. The hotel was once a bank so there are very few (if any) extras...no roomservice, no spa, etc.
Love the architecture.
The Whitney Hotel is located in a building that was initially built as a bank all the way back in 1910. Now, the historic landmark houses 93 guest rooms and offers a refined, traditional hotel for guests to stay in. Much of the old bank's architecture and stylings were preserved during the hotel's renovation. Guests will still be able to see the bank's original vault at the hotel. Also, many of the brass moldings and other designs are still present in the hotel. Close to the French Quarter and other amazing attractions, guests are sure to enjoy a stay at this hotel. Each of the stylish, classic rooms offers modern accommodations like cable TV and free WiFi. Coffeemakers are also offered in each room. Meanwhile, the rooms provide guests with gorgeous private bathrooms filled with marble interiors. Guests enjoying a stay in a suite will be provided with extra living space: the suites add a separate sitting room for guests to use. Suites also offer pullout sofas that offer guests extra sleeping accommodations if they need them. The hotel houses an elegant bar and bistro restaurant. The restaurant contains original columns from the bank's architecture, and brightly painted murals cover the restaurant's walls from top to bottom. The restaurant serves classic, Creole cuisine to give every guest a bite of New Orleans. The bank's former vault now offers guests a private dining room to enjoy their meal in a unique area. A gym is also featured in the hotel for guests to use.
