It really is an old bank made into a hotel. At first entry into room, it smells a tad musty but after the air conditioning kicks in, the smell goes away. I was there for Mardi Gras 2017 and the ice machines in the entire hotel were out. Amazingly the day after Fat Tuesday, all the ice machines worked! The...

We're glad to hear you enjoyed your stay at the Whitney Hotel over Mardi Gras. Please accept my apologies for the ice machines. They are filled twice a day from a larger machine in the building and regrettably, that machine went out. We were able to get it fixed the next day so I hope this didn't cause too much...

Returned back to The Whitney Hotel, on last night of Mardi Gras New Orleans 2017. Roads closed, crowd walking towards their hotels where for sure tomorrow morning or mid day they will try to recollect and remember at least part of the last night. Hotel was there for me, room ready so I had nice stay again. Breakfast very testy...

For the most part was great! Mostly clean! Couch could've been cleaner and curtains were messed up on one side and wouldn't close all the way. (Day sleeper) other than that, everything was great! Will stay again!

The Whitney staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. Restaurant and sightseeing recommendations made our trip even more enjoyable. Hotel was within walking distance of Bourbon Street and the French Quarter. Enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to anyone wanting a great New Orleans experience.

the hotel was very centrally located to Mardi Gras activity and we were able to walk everywhere. A little disappointed that our room was never cleaned/serviced on our last day despite hanging the door tag requesting service. The outside noise was terrible, but may have been due to the craziness of Mardi Gras weekend. All of the staff were very...

Highly recommend this hotel just across Poydras Street from One Shell Square and Pan American Life Center. Rooms are beautifully furnished and the staff is eager to help. Valet parking and a pull-in area just off Poydras make for an easy arrival. Nice soaps and shampoos! Very near the street car.

The lighting was poor in our rooms. The water pressure was low and the temperature of water was not easily controlled. The beds had springs that were broken. The mattresses were so uncomfortable. The room temperature was also hard to gage.

I came for Mardi Gras, and watched parades from the street in front of the hotel. There was a small difficulty getting to the hotel by cab during the parades when the streets were shut down. But I got within a block or two. My friends had hotels in the French Quarter, so we were often on two different sides...

Good location - just outside of the French Quarter - hotel needs updating but ticks the basic boxes. Keep your expectations modest - onsite dining is almost nil (which being in New Orleans isn't such a big deal)

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.
