The HH Whitney House on the Historic Esplanade BED & BREAKFAST in New Orleans is a legally licensed, professionally accredited accommodations property. We have five guest rooms which may be rented separately or in various combinations. Each guest room can accommodate a maximum of 2 guests. Our standard rates START at $125 PER NIGHT/PER ROOM, but our suites are priced higher and rates during special events are priced higher as well. We DO NOT offer entire house rentals that cater to those seeking an Animal House "It's Mardi Gras, Let's Party" type setting. We want our guests to have fun and a pleasant, memorable experience, but please be aware that the owners reside on premises and rowdiness or excessive noise is not acceptable. Please visit our website at www.hhwhitneyhouse.com/reservations.html to check for up-to-date online availability and rate information before sending an inquiry thru FlipKey. You may even book your stay with us online by visiting our website.
We 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....Read more
