Verified Reviews of The Whitney Hotel

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"An adequate place to stay."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
The building is a converted bank building. The conversion is showing signs of age. We saw some repainting in the elevator area but that the improvements are cosmetic. Our room was comfortable but the nicely appointed bathroom was several steps up from the sleeping area. The armoire drawers were beat up with one missing a handle. The staff was helpful and accommodating, allowing us into a room well ahead of check out time.
