I was travelling to New Orleans for business and chose HH Whitney House for my stay. It was very convenient with a friendly atmosphere. I appreciated how close it was to downtown while being in a quiet neighborhood. HH Whitney is close to coffee shops and excellent local restaurants. Overall a very enjoyable stay and a good break from the big chain hotels. Larry

This B&B was a longer walk than advertised but the bus service was right across the street. The historic home had a few old home quirks but that is to be expected. They definitely need to fix the sliding room doors since it makes getting to the hall bath difficult in the middle of the night. The hosts were most welcoming and provided food throughout the day. Let them know about your plans and they are happy to accommodate you. I would definitely return to this B&B

To get a true feeling of New Orleans you must stay at a B and B. Nothing gives you that feeling of a place stuck in time and southern comfort like staying in this historical house and stepping onto the streets surrounded by other timeless historical dwellings. My wife and I highly recommend HH Whitney House. It has a friendly warm atmosphere, Glen and Randall go out of their way to make you feel at home plus they serve great food.

I was traveling alone, and the Whitney House was a perfect temporary home. Both hosts were warm and welcoming and were often in the kitchen cooking up something delicious when I returned and took time to chat about restaurants and sites to visit. Breakfasts were delicious and conversation with hosts and other guests was delightful.

Glen and Randy are outstanding hosts who went far beyond expected innkeeper roles to make my stay enjoyable. I usually stay in hotels, but now, as a single traveler, I am sold on the b&b experience. Breakfast conversations around the big dining room table were both reminiscent of college row house meals and sources of useful dining and sightseeing information. Hanging out in the kitchen with Randy and another guest or two, winding down with a glass of wine after a full day in the city was a memorable pleasure. I look forward to staying there again on my next trip to New Orleans.

We had a wonderful time. Glen is the perfect host, friendly and helpful. The house is beautiful, the location is terrific and the breakfasts were delicious. We highly recommend this B&B.

Very enjoyable stay. Felt like we were part of the family in this beautiful historic Victorian New Orleans home, on Esplanade. True southern hospitality shown by the innkeepers Glen and Randy. They both went above and bejond to make our stay fun and memorable. These native New Orleans were right there with great suggestions even shared a bottle of wine and a taste of some good old home cookin with some great neighbors. We wouldn't think twice to stay here again.

We had a great stay and HH Whitney House. Glen and Randi made as feel welcome. They take very well care of their guest. The house is very well decorated and very clean. If we ever make it back to New Orleans we would stay here again.

It was me and my wifes anniversary, and decided to head to New Orleans. It was our first time staying at a B&B. Glen was awesome, and very helpful..he had laid out a map and pin pointed places to eat and must do and see things all over it. We stayed in the Scarlet O'Hare room, and loved it. I thought the locaton was great, just a short bike ride into the quarter. I would definately recommend staying here, and plan on going back very soon..

Our stay at the HH Whitney House gave us a taste of New Orleans and the hosts: Glen and Randy were so wonderful. We really enjoyed every second of our time in New Orleans and we owe it all to HH Whitney House!

Beautiful home outside of French Quarter. Walking distance, during the day, to best attractions. At night, a cab is highly recommended. The owners treat the home as their home vs a Bed and Breakfast business. They are very willing to help and suggest activities. Timing for breakfast is a bit short. If you're a little late, you miss it.

I went to this bed and breakfast on June 30 til July 2 2013 and i enjoyed the pool , the whirlpool and the advices given by the owner. Thank you very much! It was a great time in a great house.

This was a beautiful B&B on Esplanade Avenue in New Orleans which is just a short walk to the French Quarter! I stayed in the Solarium Suite, which was by far the most beautiful room I have ever stayed in at a B&B! It had a gorgeous private balcony looking out on the oak lined esplanade avenue. This was the most romantic room and stay in New Orleans I could have asked for. I will most certainly return again to HH Whitney House!

They do have a very sweet, but very talkative little girl that is typically there. The room cleaning is a bit sporadic. The house is beautiful and very clean. The pool was is great shape and heated!

Glen and Randy are super nice guys. The house is a true southern beauty. The rates were extremely reasonable. There were only two areas that were a slight disappointment. First our bedroom door didn't shut very well and we never figured out how to lock it, since staying there was a lot like staying with family, that wasn't much of an issue for us, but I could see it being a problem for some people. Our big complaint, which in their defense we never voiced , was the promise of a "FULL SOUTHERN BREAKFAST" While breakfast was home cooked every day, it was not a traditional southern breakfast like I grew up with. No biscuits and gravy ,no bacon or sausage, we only grits once and portions were quite small. I would recommend staying here as long as you plan on going out for the southern breakfast experience.

The proximity to everything was great. We walked most places and enjoyed exploring the area. The house is nice and the owners do a good job keeping it clean and welcoming. We had the room that had a shared bathroom but it wasn't an issue...most rooms do have private restrooms.

What a great place to stay!! Can walk or cab to the French quarter or Frenchmen street. Great hot tub/pool area, and the food was delicious

I was in NOLA for a conference and then to vacation with my husband. This place was within walking distance of the French Quarter but was nicely tucked away from the crazy. I stayed in the Solarium Room, which was so very luxurious! We loved sitting on our own balcony overlooking the street, having a good soak in the one-person footed tub while staring at the chandelier, and having a quiet night in the HOT! hot tub (it was still too chilly for the pool). The owners are lovely to chat with and make an amazing breakfast! The price was a little steep for what I would pay out-of-pocket, but it was the same price my company was willing to pay for at the conference hotel, so I chose to put my money into the local economy instead of a faceless corporation. Because of this, I got more than my money would have paid for at the hotel, including: breakfast (wonderful!), free internet, free parking, the hot tub/pool area surrounded in a private backyard full of plant-life, excellent suggestions for restaurants, snacks whenever I needed them, and the joy of meeting my hosts. Definitely would come back! Oh, and I will always book directly through the B&B's website - this website takes 20% commission away from the owners if you book through here!

I had an amazing stay at the HH Whitney house. I stayed in the solarium room, which was really nice. It has a separate bedroom, a large sitting area with large balcony, and a nice bathroom. The craftsmanship of days gone by is evident though out. Beautiful. Glen was a great host. Very helpful. Pointed me in the right direction for great food and jazz.

Pleasantly surprised. Building 1863, decked out in antiques. Owners Randy & Glenn have created wonderful space and great hosts. A very reasonable price for what it is. Thanks for that! Will recommend to friends and family, will definitely stay there again. We didn't partake in the breakfast as we are finicky about our all natural, organic diet. Sincerely Eric & Lisa Kolk Bresselsmith

Glen was most hospitable and his home is lovely. Although we only stayed one night, I would not hesitate to return. I can unequivocally say that it was a great B and B. Thanks so much Glen!

We had a great time. Glen and Randy were the best hosts we have ever experienced. They made us feel right at home like we have known them forever. The breakfasts were to die for, the best food ever. We will be back for sure.

We greatly enjoyed our trip to NOLA and our stay at the HH Whitney House. Glen, Randy and Maria were wonderful hosts with lots of good suggestions on restaurants and sites to see. The breakfast was delicious and a good way to start the day. The bed was more comfortable than any hotel we have stayed in. Highly recommended!
4.0 on November 21, 2012
First the positives: The home is very beautiful and historic, and the owners have paid great attention to detail in terms of décor, cleanliness and comfort. The room where we stayed had a very comfortable bed, truly outstanding. The breakfast was tasty, with a croissant sandwich, fresh fruit and coffee, or juice. Both our host and the woman who helps with cooking and cleaning were both very kind and helpful, making us feel comfortable and very much at home. The on-street parking is convenient, right outside the front door, and the home is well marked with a large banner on the fencing in front of the home. The front porch has a nice porch swing which we enjoyed. The home is conveniently located on bus lines which connect to street cars so you can easily access the whole city from the front door. And the French Quarter is a short walk down the street. There is a friendly corner store across the street where you can get a bottle of wine, some beer, snacks, or muscatel in a brown paper bag depending on your interests. The negatives: The door to our room was a pocket door which did not close entirely, leaving us wanting for more privacy. We also noticed that the acoustics were such that we could easily eavesdrop on conversations from the next room, again a privacy issue, and when our neighbors woke early one morning it was more than a nuisance. The home is on a grand boulevard with lovely homes, but in a neighborhood which appears to be in a transitional state – one where you feel quite comfortable in the daylight hours, but where I would think twice about an evening stroll. Whether the neighborhood is on the upswing or deteriorating I could not say.

My sister and I stayed for the weekend because we had a wedding to go to on the same street. It was by chance that we found such an amazing place to stay! We shared a bathroom with one other guest, but it was never an inconvenience. The bed was very comfortable. There were complimentary drinks and snacks. You will fall in love with the place. It has so much character and the owners make you feel extremely at home! I wish I could have moved right in! Breakfast was delicious both mornings that we were there. The place was so very clean. I absolutely plan on going back and telling everyone I know!

We really enjoyed our recent stay at the H H Whitney House on our first visit to New Orleans. This grand home has lots of charm and it is situated in a quiet neighbourhood within walking distance of the French Quarter. We really enjoyed our daily walks along the historic Esplanade. Guests are invited to relax in the parlor/sitting room on the main floor and the backyard has a pool, hot tub, fountain, and lush vegetation. The house is filled with interesting antiques. There is ample parking on the property. We stayed in the Scarlet O’Hara room. The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. There was ample space for the two of us. Free WiFi access was appreciated. Glen is a perfect host: welcoming, thoughtful, and helpful. We felt welcome from the moment we arrived and he made us feel like special guests. Glen gave us a helpful orientation when we arrived and prepared a city map that included great recommendations of places to eat and visit. Before our trip, we received a detailed email that answered many of our questions and it provided directions from the airport. Breakfast each morning was delicious and well presented. We enjoyed the bottomless cups of tasty coffee. Snacks, bottled water and soda were always available. We enjoyed the opportunity to chat with the other guests and Glen during breakfast. I would not hesitate to recommend H & H Whitney House and hope that we can visit again.

We had rooms for my husband and me as well as our adult son for a long weekend. The rooms were spacious and beautiful. The pool and garden were gorgeous. The breakfast was fantastic. The house itself is well maintained and beautifully furnished and - important for an August weekend in NOLA - the central air worked perfectly. Lots of character and comfort.

Our stay at the H H Whitney House B & B was a wonderful experience for my husband and I. This was our first stay at a Bed and Breakfast and Glen and Randy the innkeepers really helped make our visit memorable. The pool and hottub were an added bonus in heat of a New Orleans summer. The breakfasts were so good... I just loved the waffles with fruit they were wonderful. If your looking for a quiet location with that feels like home H H Whitney House is a great choice. Thanks Glen and Randy for helping to make our vacation memorable. Scott/Lisa

We loved the New Orleans charm of the HH Whitney in its architecture and furnishings. The pool was relaxing feature for our downtime. We could walk to the French quarter or Bourbon Street, and take an affordable taxi to or from the area. We were on the bus line as well. The trolley was not too far away. We were close enough to our B & B to come back, kick back, and then go out again. Need advice on a restaurant or a taxi cab call? Glen will call or advise. Both restaurants we tried were great--and totally different in price and atmosphere. We loved our three days and want to come back!

I would come back. And I'll tell all of my friends about it.

My daughter and I had the pleasure of spending the last three nights of our trip to New Orleans at the HH Whitney House in June of 2012. We had been staying at a swanky hotel for five days prior, but decided we wanted to experience the personal touches that only a Bed and Breakfast can offer. We stayed in the Garden Suite which gave us plenty of room to relax and get ready for outings. We were impressed by the friendliness and knowledge of the innkeeper Randy. He was ready and willing to provide us with suggestions on things to do around town. We certainly appreciated his advice as it saved us time and helped us to avoid some "not so great" establishments about town. The breakfasts were prepared with great love and eye appeal, and were quite delicious. It was interesting to walk throughout the beautiful home and admire the many old photos and other unique artifacts. Though it is a very elegant home, we immediately felt right "at home" since Randy was so welcoming and cordial. If we ever return to New Orleans, we would most definitely consider staying at the HH Whitney House again. And I know we will refer our traveling friends to this lovely Bed and Breakfast!

Randy made a point to make sure I enjoyed my stay. From the phone call checking on me to see how I was progressing in my travel to the detailed map and brochures to aid in my sight-seeing and the food recommendations...everything was PERFECT! I totally felt like one of the family. The bed in the Bride's Room...oh my! I wanted to take it home! And the breakfasts were amazing! I couldn't have chosen a more perfect place for my stay! Thank you so much!

a extrordinary place to stay. Couldnt have asked for better service form the staff. Host is a wonderful person to visit with and makes sure your stay is as comfortable as possible. Truly enjoyed going for a late night swim after strolling streets of New Orleans. Very relaxing atmosphere. Walking distance to bus stop.

it is a really charming B&B, but unfortunately the surrounding it is not at the same level, in particular if you want to walk until the French Quartier.

The HH Whitney House provides its guests with the ultimate in southern hospitality. I recently came to New Orleans for a job interview and stayed at the HH Whitney House for two nights. Although I came to New Orleans alone, I left having made two new friends. Glen and Randy provided me with invaluable asssistance in learning about the city's neighborhoods and in locating a new place to live. They truly go above and beyond for their guests. Regardless of which room you are lucky enough to stay in, you will enjoy every moment of your stay at the HH Whitney House. it is definitely a treat!!!
5 on July 22, 2008
My wife and I can't thank you enough Glen, Randall and Frank. Upon our arrival we immediately knew we made the "right" choice in staying at your amazingly large B & B house. Frank....your hospitality was off the charts...as well as your delicious homemade gourmet breakfast each morning! We also enjoyed the "no time-limit" jacuzzi & pool...it was peaceful and very clean. We are kinda big kids at heart and like a good secret midnight snack; so it was truly wonderful to enjoy the fresh pastries and refreshing drinks which you make available 24/7. We also give you a big A+ on the room cleanliness, bed comfort and towel/immenities replacement during our 5 day stay. Lastly, thanks on your expert suggestions on music; we enjoyed the blend of sounds and atmoshere on Frenchmen & Chartes. We were able to get a picture with a "great" jazz legend that friday night!! We hope you continue to be a "rare" find; thanks y'all again for all your true southern hospitality. We'll be back! V & C Orange County, CA

The owners made us feel like ROYALTY! This is a beautiful home! We stayed in the Servants Quarter's. The room was SO nice, with plenty of room for us to spread out. The breakfast was so good that I had to ask for the recipe! When we arrived, they sit with us and told us about the city...where to go and what not to miss. Overly helpful! It made the most of our short stay in New Orleans. Would definitely go back!
