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 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.

Great Location

We stayed here because the hotel our conference was being held at sold out. The complimentary breakfast daily was a lovely treat. The room was clean and adequate. The gym is TINY. But the staff was very friendly, even when I kept deactivating my room key with my phone. But the location is PERFECT! Right in the middle of everything but still really quiet. I would go back.

clean, quiet, and pleasant

I stayed at the Dauphine Orleans with a friend while we were attending a conference in Nov. 2010. It was an easy walk from the big conference hotels on Canal St. The rooms were rather plain and some details could use updating but they were very clean and quiet (we had an interior room) and comfortable (the beds were especially comfy!). The staff was attentive. The location was convenient and off the rowdy-party Bourbon St. scene. So all in all it suited our needs well at a lower price than the conference hotel options. it would also be a good choice if my visit were for pleasure/vacation.

Frenchman St. for dinner and good music with a different vibe from the rowdy Bourbon St. party scene.

Don't do it!

Our first room fronted the very noisy street, was in ill repair replete with a leaky refrigerator that had the carpeting damp in a three foot circumference. They moved us to the main hotel, third floor where garage workers and maintenance personnel arrive early in the morning and proceed to yell instructions to each other and otherwise talk loudly; we called down to the front desk on almost a daily basis asking them to please ask folks to quiet down. The worst part was the major water pump break that caused all of the water in the area to become contaminated and required that no one use it for brushing teeth, drinking, etcetera without a ten minute boil. The hotel NEVER informed us as guests. The major hotels in the area (Sheraton, Marriott) provided bottled water to all guests along with constant updates. Seriously, this was the worst hotel I have ever stayed at in terms of service, cleanliness, and regard for its guests.

friendly and charm filled

While this Hotel shows its age, it is well run, clean, and full of southern charm. The continental breakfast was well stocked. All of the servants were exceptionally attentive and friendly. My room was hugh, and full of well kept furniture. I enjoyed this much more than the typically conference hotel. I will stay there again.
