The Whitney is in a perfect location to tour the city. Easy access to the tram system and we could walk to most everything. The staff was so helpful and knowledgeable. They always had suggestions of off the beaten path places to try.

Our stay at the Whitney Hotel was amazing. The hotel is conveniently located close to the Warehouse District and the French Quarter, but quiet. The room was spotlessly clean, staff was efficient and very friendly and the bed was one of the most comfortable I've ever slept in. I can highly recommend this place.

Good location a block form Canal Street and two blocks from the river. Clean comfortable but the breakfast is poor as well as expensive - Plenty of other options locally though. Hotel was quiet despite being on a busy road.

We stayed here for two nights but were not that impressed. The reception area is nice and the building has kept to its hisotric bank style. The rooms however definitely need some work. The room smelt a built old, the bed was very hard, things were chipped and broken, it was very small and the aircon was broken. We had...

Earl at the front desk and Justin in parking and the fantastic service they provide are the main reasons we return to the Whitney time after time. They go out of their way to ensure that our stay is always comfortable. They are very accommodating to our requests and make sure that we are always taken care of. Customer service...

The staff was very friendly, and helpful. It was a little far from the main attractions, but definitely it was worth it for us to save the extra $100. Overall, we were very happy with our experience there

I was here for the CCC10k and the last few places I have stayed in New Orleans have been pretty noisy. So this Hotel was very quite no loud noises outside. I mean I know its New Orleans and all, but hey I needed to rest for my 10k the next day, especially when traveling with my older parents.

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.
