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).

This hotel had good and ...

This hotel had good and bad sides. Upon check-in The room we were given was okay. The room that my brother was given had no air conditioning. He was given a room across the street. This room was so full of mildew that you could hardly breathe. We did see others get better rooms. This could have been a great experience but earned a so-so.

Very unpleasant manager

The room itself was nice but the elevators were out of order for the majority of my trip, including when I was checking out and had to lug my bags down four flights of stairs.

An interesting hotel

It was my first trip to New Orleans and was lucky with the location of this hotel. It was amazingly quiet for only being one block from Broubon Street. The day time front desk staff was pretty helpful, but the night time staff could not have cared less about helping us. When ask a question about where something was or where a good place might be to eat he would just say he did not know, he did not even try. My hotel room was okay, but they did not clean the room very well before we got there (there was pieces of candy under the bed and dresser). The cleaning staff was friendly and seemed to want to help when asked for something. I travel a fair amount and this hotel was okay for the money. Just be prepared to not ask the breakfast staff or night staff for any help.

Good Location.

The hotel was okay. It was quiet for the French Quarter. We were there for 5 nights; the sheets were never changed. Could use some new mattresses.

Close to the Festivities

Check in Staff was Great. Valet abusive to my quest, not called for. Previous guests coffee in the coffee maker. Slow drain on sink. The Bar was OK. Low Street Noise. Pool was clean. A Room Upgrade and Charm School for the Valet Staff might get a fourth star? The Fourth Star is achievable at this facility.
