HH Whitney House Bed & Breakfast on the Esplanade
We do offer rooms on an individual or group basis to those seeking an elegant, yet relaxing atmosphere. We strive to make your vacation, business trip or special occasion a memorable one. Even before you walk through the front door of this bed and breakfast, your hosts Glen and Randy make you feel right at home. Whether you're seeking a quiet and intimate weekend getaway or lots of personal attention for an action-packed visit to New Orleans, your hosts are in tune with your needs and make it their business to pamper you.
The HH Whitney House Bed and Breakfast offers 3 guest rooms and 2 suites which may be combined in a variety of ways to best suit our guests' needs. The house sleeps a maximum of 10 persons in the five bedrooms, each of which features one queen-sized bed. All rooms are equipped with digital cable TV, alarm clock with radio and CD player, ceiling fan, bathrobes and slippers, iron and ironing board, as well as hairdryer and bath amenities.
Standard room rates generally START at $125 per night PER ROOM. Our three standard rooms include our Scarlett O'Hara and the Bride's & Groom's Rooms. Each of those features a queen bed, sleeping a maximum of two guests per room and have either private or semi-private use of the home's two hall bathrooms, each of which feature an antique clawfoot tub with shower.
Rates for either of our two suites START at $185 per night. Each of the suites offers a queen bed, sleeping a maximum of two guests per room, an ensuite bathroom and a private balcony or gallery. The Garden Suite, located at the rear of the home, is the former Servants' Quarters and features a private balcony overlooking the pool and garden. In addition, the Garden Suite features an exposed brick chimney which divides the sleeping area from the dressing area and bath which is highlighted by an oversized glass-block shower with dual showerheads.
The Solarium Suite offers a very comfortable sitting room with overstuffed furniture, a private gallery overlooking Esplanade Avenue and private bath with antique clawfoot tub & shower. The Solarium Suite may be combined with the Bride's Room alone or with the Bride's & Groom's Rooms to provide deluxe accommodations for friends and family travelling together. These three rooms can be combined in a variety of ways to accommodate up to six guests who may want separate sleeping accommodations as part of a larger suite.
Elegance is the hallmark of this beautiful Italianate-style home. Ceiling medallions adorn the foyer, dining room, parlor and solarium, while the main focal point of the bed and breakfast's interior is the convergence of three separate archways, which extend over the double-parlor and solarium. The union of these arches reaches toward the floor and is suspended effortlessly in mid-air -- the perfect setting for your wedding ceremony or the renewal of your marriage vows!
The parlor and solarium are elegantly appointed with antique Victorian furnishings as well as a 1912 vintage upright piano. The dining room features an 11-foot oak table which provides a casually elegant setting for breakfast. Eleven fireplaces grace the home, including two in the double-parlor, which features Italian marble mantelpieces. Unique cypress mantels add their own distinctive flavor to each guest room's ambiance. Original cypress millwork and transoms exist throughout the home. Most bathrooms feature vintage clawfoot tubs and showers.
The lush tropical garden of this B & B has been transformed since Hurricane Katrina to include a new in-ground swimming pool and hot tub. The area still provides a great setting for sipping your morning coffee, reading your favorite novel, having an afternoon cocktail or sharing a late-night talk with your sweetie after a long day in New Orleans. The base of the home's original cistern still provides a home for our Rebecca fountain and goldfish, while other ponds and fountains adorn the garden.

While we consider our location close to many nearby attractions, we don't recommend our rental for guests with problems walking, unless you are used to city walking, or are renting a vehicle. While we are only located a 5-10 minute walk from the French Quarter we've found that some guests with limited mobility have had difficulty getting around.
Very soft and comfy Queen size bed, large flat screen tv, free wifi and basic cable, CD/DVD/Blu Ray Player, full kitchen (full size fridge, stove, microwave), double head tile shower, private entrance.
For additional fees we will stock the fridge/pantry with chips, frozen pizzas, ice cream, party beverages, etc. (whatever you request - so that you don't have to go to the grocery store!)
Street parking always available unless a parade is going by!
All stays require a security deposit in advance refunded at checkout. Security deposit will not be returned in the case of cancellations with less than a 5 day notice.
Non Smoking apartment, but there is a convenient balcony just outside. No pets
We are located just off Highway 10. If you are coming from the airport you should know that there is a fixed taxi rate (should be $33 dollars) to downtown New Orleans/French Quarter.
This is a nice quiet break from the craziness of the french quarter. Its close enough that you easily be part of the fun, but far enough that you can get a nice night's sleep when you're finally ready to turn in.
