A note from the Innkeeper/s

Visit their website for
additional information!


Circa 1865. The Civil War had barely ended when builders broke ground on this elegant Italianate mansion. More than a century later, much of its original charm has been maintained. The intricate molding and plasterwork are of the highest quality. Common rooms with Victorian furnishings and appointments complement the architecture. Distinctive antiques include an early 20th-century player piano. A decorative fireplace is featured in each guest bedroom. The Bride's Room, with a lace-draped canopy bed, makes a spacious two- or three-bedroom suite when combined with the Solarium or Groom's rooms. The romantic Honeymoon Suite in the former servants' quarters offers total privacy. Located in the Esplanade Ridge historic district, the French Quarter is just a half-mile walk.

True Southern Hospitality

I recently stayed at the HH Whitney House when I traveled to New Orleans for a job interview. I could not have asked for a better experience. The house is beautiful and the hospitality is second to none. Glen and Randy went out of their way to make me feel welcome in the city that will soon be my new home. They answered my many questions about the city and even helped me find a new place to live. I could not have asked for better hospitality. They truly made my stay in New Orleans a wonderful experience. The HH Whitney House definitely provides its guests with true southern hospitality. Stay here...you are in for a real treat!!!
