New Orleans

Explore New Orleans, Louisiana

The HH Whitney House is located in New Orleans, Louisiana in the Esplanade Ridge historic district, which is situated between the Mississippi River at the Vieux Carré and City Park. We are conveniently located close to most attractions in the historic district and downtown areas, as well as to the Fairgrounds, home of the annual Jazz & Heritage Festival. We are just over one mile from City Park where you may enjoy 300-year old live oaks, the Botanical and Sculpture Gardens, and the New Orleans Museum of Art.

Local Transportation

The French Quarter, just a half-mile away, is a pleasant 10 minute stroll down the grand Esplanade. Taxi service to and from the Quarter costs $6-7, but you may want to consider using the city’s bus and streetcar system with our 1-day and 3-day VisiTour passes, $5 and $12 respectively. Remembering that the essence of New Orleans is wrapped up in the experience, why not take the time to discover why New Orleans is the City That Care Forgot? The Esplanade Avenue bus runs about every 30 minutes and offers connections to most other parts of the city.

For guests who will be in town 1-3 days and spending most of their time in the historic districts, we do not recommend a rental car, although guests staying longer or wishing to explore swamp and plantation country may find it beneficial. Several tour companies offer packages with transportation to these areas from our front door for between $40-100 per person. The city’s vastly different neighborhoods and many places of interest within 1-2 hours drive will capture your attention for days on end. We recommend a minimum of 5 days in order to fully appreciate all that New Orleans, Lousiana area has to offer.
