HH Whitney House is our elegant Bed & Breakfast in New Orleans, Louisiana located on the historic Esplanade Ridge, just nine blocks from the French Quarter and just one mile from the Fairgrounds and City Park. The HH Whitney House offers an elegant, yet relaxing atmosphere that will make your vacation, business trip or special occasion a memorable one. Even before you walk through the front door, 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 excursion, your hosts are in tune with your needs and make it their business to pamper you. The rear garden features a beautiful swimming pool and built-in hot tub surrounded by lush tropical foliage and fruit trees.
The pool/garden area provides a great setting for reading the morning paper, having an afternoon cocktail, or taking a late-night dip in the hot tub. The base of the home’s original cistern provides a home for our Rebecca fountain and Chinese goldfish, plus there are still little nooks and crannies where one can disappear. The Inn is located on the historic Esplanade Ridge, just nine blocks from the French Quarter and just one mile from Jackson Square, the Fairgrounds and City Park. A daytime stroll along the Esplanade allows you to view the magnificent homes that grace this beautiful boulevard. You may also choose to rent bicycles and use the newly created bike lanes on Esplanade and on other major streets throughout the city. Esplanade Avenue is serviced by a bus line which runs from the Lakeview/Mid-City neighborhoods, past City Park, across the French Quarter and through Downtown/CBD/Warehouse District to the Garden District. There is even one of those large, big box retailers at the terminus of the 91-Jackson-Esplanade in case you forgot something that you just can’t live without! The bus line has direct connections to many other bus and streetcar routes which will enable you to explore the entire city without the need of your own vehicle. And most of the buses are equipped with special racks to hold your bicycle for you on those longer treks across town.
