More Room Types

The Whitney Hotel is a budget-friendly choice offering up average but comfortable rooms in a better-than-average location. Located in New Orleans' Central Business District (CBD), this hotel is within 15 minutes walking distance to major attractions like Bourbon Street, Lafayette Square and the Superdome, to name a few. Anything outside walking distance can be accessed by the St.Charles Streetcar line one block away.

Rooms are pretty dull decor-wise, but comfortable pillow-top mattresses, nice robes and big desks more than make up for it. Old tube TVs don't help the style situation but for the price, it's tough to complain. Internet access is free: In the lobby, guests can utilize Wi-Fi, but in rooms, guests will have to physically connect with a wire. 

The on-site restaurant is where the hotel's historic character and charm really shine: Marble pillars and an original mural from 1890 provide the perfect, picturesque backdrop for authentic Creole cuisine. 

From the press:
  • "More history and character than your typical chain" -- Oyster.com
  • "Renovated and expanded, the stylish Whitney is a great choice if you're looking to stay away from the Bourbon Street bustle" -- Fodor's
