The H. H. Whitney House is in an excellent location, easy walking distance to the French Quarter and on a bus line. Even before we arrived, we felt well cared for, thanks to the detailed and accurate driving instructions to the B&B. We arrived early, but Glen was very hospitable and then and throughout our stay made us feel very welcome and at home. He's also a great font of knowledge about things to do in New Orleans and the surrounding area and how to get there. Our breakfasts were excellent and kept us well fed most of the day. We definitely would stay at the Whitney House if we visit New Orleans again.

I have been to New Orleans many times and can tell you that the HH Whitney B&B is truly an authentic B&B in New Orleans. Today so many B&B's have shortened the list of ammenities, HH Whitney has not done this. They exceed the experience in respect to a unique breakfast and endless amount of travel tips.. The location is the best. Can bike or hop a bus to city park. City park is a wonderful place to explore with regard to the grounds as well as the New Orleans Art museum. Can walk to the French quarter or the Marighney. Can access the street cars. And if you prefer not to walk, can take a taxi to one of these venues. The host, Glen is a native, a real plus in New Orleans. I would highly recommend HH Whitney. .Kathy. Central Louisiana
