Friendly staff, very knowledgeable about local attractions. Provided me with various options when asked for vegan food. Room was clean & tidy, though the air-conditioning was a bit noisy. Would stay again if visiting New Orleans.

Very accommodating staff. Competitive pricing for downtown N.O. convenient location. Comfortable room. Good food in restaurant. Broken exercise equipment. 'fitness club' is a bit of a misnomer. We can recommend this to anyone else for a good place to stay with great location for many attractions.

Room a little on the small side, but very well equipped and furnished, comfortable beds, large bathroom. Helpful receptionists and worth-to-see entrance/lobby area on first floor. Only AC was a little loud and windows could (of course) not be opened.

Stay at The Whitney to capture a sense of the history of New Orleans with its actual bank vault door decor, and location that is right in the heart of New Orleans great for business but close to the French Quarter for fun. It's clean, comfortable, has amenities, and is a great location, friendly too.

It was within walking distance to the convention center, Bourbon street, and many exceptional restaurants. Also, the price was great for the location. This was the first hotel that I have stayed in that has...

The Whitney is perfectly located in walking distance from all of the attractions but far enough away for a quiet retreat from the busy city. The front desk staff was very helpful and made us feel welcome from our first step inside the door. Will definitely look to stay there on our next visit.

For a 3 star property the pillows are the old motel 6 type of foam pillows! They need to upgrade their pillows to reflect the quality of the hotel. Also, had to eat breakfast at the...

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.
