a definite future repeat performance

Chateau Dupre offered a pleasant stay. Great location, friendly and helpful staff, they have done alot of upkeep and maintenance on the hotel which was built in 1854 (which gives it even more character and charm. The temperature inside was comfortable.I enjoyed being right above the street which provided entertainment at times outside with spontaneous parades going by, street muscians, etc. Despite the frequent fire trucks from down the street passing by, it was quiet and a great place to relax. An excellent value.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Every morning walked all over French Quarter, along Mississippi River, to parks, restaurants and cafes, and also to conference several blocks away. Being able to walk all over, with lots to see and do within a short jaunt was great. Tour shop right next store person was very helpful and steered me in great directions from the hotel.

Great location / reasonable price

I have stayed in New Orleans a number of times. This hotel is small scale, laid back with loads of character. The staff was genuine and willing to help. The room was large and clean. Some facilities needed updating but nothing that would interfere with your comfort. The location was the best part. Everything is close and within walking distance. If you want to get the flavor of New Orleans then you can?t go wrong with this hotel. It has a great location and staff, at a very reasonable price.

Don't rent a car. A shuttle to and from the airport is all you need. Everything else is in walking distance.

Birthday getaway

I planned this fantastic birthday getaway to New Orleans. It was everything I could have hoped for and more! The staff could not have been more accommodating and helpful in assisting to making this a most memorable birthday ever! My celebratory dinner was at Antoine"s on Royal Street, the dining staff sang Happy Birthday, gave me a tour and brief history of renowned restaurant. They even took pictures with me, the Chef came out to inquire if the meal was to my liking. And of course, it was!

Perfect for a short, busy trip

Was in town for a short, busy business trip. It was very hot outside and there was a lot of walking. The Hotel was the perfect place to either end the day or nap in between events. The A/C worked great, the staff was friendly, and Huck Finns next door was fun (and delicious).

It doesn't get any better!

We were on our way to a cruise and we had booked the hotel for one night. It was right in thhe middle of the Frenchquarter! So many things to do and to see! And the people! The staff was excellent and tried in every way to make our stay there enjoyable. Kudos!

Pleasant Place, Friendly Staff, Cozy and

Rehabbed 19th-century building, well-maintained modest-sized room, right at edge of French quarter without being in the middle of it. Staff couldn't be better! Despite the good location, there were still some noisy party-makers passing by every now and then; esp. cars with ugly wall-shaking bass at 2-3am for 2 of the 5 nights there. Not the hotel's fault.

Great Location

Chateau Dupre is quite possibly in the best location of the French Quarter. You pay for the hotel location, not the fancy room with lots of amenities.

Everything was great the only thing I could find to gripe about was that the batteries in the TV remote needed to be changed. The room was clean and the staff is very nice.

I always bring some food for the room which is a great idea when you don't want to get out of bed.
