    Good

    the rooms were spacious and nice. The way the bank is changed into hotel is nice and beautiful.

    the tapwater is nog drinkeble and they should offer some bottles of water on the rooms for the price. The waitres in the breakfastroom was almost rude, took very long to get everything served, the eggs were already cold when the toast was served The king sized beds are queen size!,

    Superb

    The staff at the Whitney was very helpful and helped make our stay a very pleasant one. The hotel itself is fine. It is in a very old building (used to be a bank), so some features matched this: smaller rooms, etc. We were very pleased with the location too. The Whitney is located right on Poydras about 3 blocks over from the craziness of the French Quarter and about 4 blocks up from the River Walk or Convention Center. Easy to get everywhere quickly.

    The rooms were smaller and not everything was clean & bright like you'd expect in a newer hotel. However, this was all just the nature of an older property. For the price you can't beat this place. Just know going in what to expect.

    Great location, rooms were clean and big enough for a family. I will mostly be using them next time I come to New Orleans. The only downside is the parking charge, but you get the comfort of knowing your vehicle is save.

    Great Place for the money. Similar hotels were $100/night higher. Will stay there again.

    Proximity - easily accessible but not amid the Historical Architectural design

    No concierge (although the front desk staff were very helpful)

    Superb

    I like the location and the convenience to all attractions. The beds were extremely comfortable and relatively quiet.

    The only complaint I had about the hotel was the toilet. It seemed to be broken towards the end of our trip and was making a clanking sound throughout the night. We told the front desk once when we checked out and she was nice and told us she would report it and if we would've come down earlier she would've switched our room. That was appreciated.

    Superb

    Le confort général, la propreté.

    Nous avions réservé une suite premium avec salon. Or, on nous a attribué une chambre avec 2 lits. Il a fallu demander pour obtenir satisfaction et changer de chambre.
