Property Description

The HH Whitney House in New Orleans 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 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.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 vintage 1912 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 features an in-ground swimming pool with built-in hot tub. Even if you choose to not get wet, 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 provides a home for our Rebecca fountain and goldfish.
