The night clerk was not very pleasant to deal with, ask a question and it was like your bothering her, the lady on the day shift was very helpful for a first time individual in New Orleans.

No frills but great location- very pleased
We had a great stay at The Whitney. The location was perfect for our girlfriends getaway weekend-- quick walk to the French Quarter, short uber to Frenchman Street, right next to the St. Charles Streetcar. Our favorite, though, was the French Truck Coffee right next door, which supplied us with delicious coffee and breakfast sandwiches every morning. The room at the hotel was a weird layout... a kind suite, which meant two full bedrooms and a bathroom (no mini fridge or couch), which worked for us (but wouldn't have for a couple). Also, they didn't service our room every day, which was odd. Nevertheless, it served it's purpose, and we both slept great.

We only stayed one night but had a great experience. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. The common areas were clean and quiet. The rooms were clean, there was some noise from the outside and the hall but nothing I couldn’t handle. I would definitely stay here again.
