A hospitable, historic French Quarter inn that’s heavy on amenities

Past and present convene at this historic hotel, which dates to the 1700s.  The hotel was once host to John James Audubon as he painted his famous bird series. It was later a bordello. Today, the Dauphine revels in its storied history and offers a comfortable contemporary hotel with lots of Southern hospitality. Guests can stay in the cottages across Dauphine from the main hotel, which are the original structures.

Highlights
  • Saltwater courtyard pool
  • Free continental breakfast and afternoon tea
  • Jacuzzi tubs
Rooms

The Dauphine's 111 rooms are as varied as the hotel's history. The 14 rooms and suites in the Hermann House Courtyard -- once the home of a wealthy merchant -- sport Jacuzzi tubs. The Carriage House was once a French Quarter townhouse and now offers nine unique courtyard rooms, each outfitted with 19th century antiques. Bathrooms in some suites can be quite lavish with opulently draped whirlpool tubs. Every room offers free Wi-Fi, bathrobes, cable TV, coffee makers, hair dryers, safe, iron and ironing board.  Complimentary continental breakfast, morning newspaper and afternoon tea are nice extras. Some suites include stone fireplaces.

Features

May Bailey's Place, was once a bordello in the red-light district of Storyville. It is now the hotel's intimate bar, complete with a red light outside and "bordello" guest suite upstairs. Visitors are welcome to take books from the inn's library back home.  A recently updated fitness center helps visitors work off the excesses of a visit to New Orleans. Free morning breakfast includes fresh fruit, cereal and a make your own waffles station. There is valet parking (fees apply).

Great stay at Dauphine

staff was exceptional on service and offering suggestions for dining. Bed was fantastic. Location was wonderful-one very quiet blk from the action of Bourbon St. Room was smaller than appeared in photos, but that is the closest to a negative I could think of. Would stay here again and will recommend to friends.

Yearly Visit

Great location in French Quarter. Convenient to everything, including starting point for St. Charles Trolley, Acme Oyster House, etc. Very quiet despite being only one block from Bourbon. Continental breakfast is good, although we usually went to several nearby eateries. Great little bar on Conti right around the corner (Erin Rose) worth a visit just for the interior & exterior decor, esp near Halloween. Staff very helpful and friendly.

Oceana or Old Coffee Pot for breakfast. Acme Oyster House (best gumbo and bread pudding we've ever had).

Great Location, Nice Hotel

The Dauphine is so conveniently located one block from Bourbon Street. It is quiet enough so that sleeping isn't a problem, but close enough so that you are within walking distance of anything in the Quarter. The room in which I stayed was nothing fancy, two double beds, but being in NOLA I didn't plan to spend much time in the room, anyway. The continental breakfast included coffee, juices, tea, fruit, yogurt, cereal and belgian waffles. For the value, a wonderful hotel in the heart of the Quarter.

amazing location

I stayed here for Mardi Gras 2010, my boyfriend and I come every year and by far this hotel has the best location at such a great price. You are in the middle of everything and within walking distance to it all from both malls, the casino, and the best part BOURBON ST! It is super loud during Mardi Gras, but the hotel is just far enough off that its quiet, but close enough to be able to use a clean restroom during partying. The beds were temperpedic so we slept amazingly well. Also during Mardi Gras you have to have a wrist band issued by the hotel to get in, makes you feel extremly safe. I would recommend this hotel to everyone!

night out

Everything was great from the parking valet to the comfy bed. My only problem was i was charged a extra $50 , that was supposed to be refunded upon checkout, and it was never placed back to my account.

First Time in New Orleans

The staff were very friendly and service was excellent. The hotel room was clean and comfortable. The view from the room was not much and the single pane window Allowed any sound to be heard in the room.

Great location, friendly staff

Staff were very helpful in recommending restaurants and giving directions to sights. Room was clean, nicely decorated and very comfortable. The breakfast was great, with fresh fruit (including strawberries), hard boiled eggs & sausage, oatmeal, yogurt, and good coffee. Interior courtyard and small swimming pool were pleasant.
