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 French Quarter Hotel

Great place, a block off Bourbon - close enough for all the action without all the noise at night! The bathrooms could be a bit larger for me personally but the shower was great, the beds are comfy and the downstairs bar is convenient!

Fabulous Boutique Hotel in Perfect Location

Our best hotel experience in years! Breakfast (exceptional and included) in a room with weathered wood and old brick walls that used to be Audubon's studio; drinks in a small bar which used to be a brothel and with old licenses framed for viewing;a well stocked paperback library one was encouraged to borrow from (or take!); delightful room with French doors leading to a small balcony overlooking a wrought-iron enhanced patio and pool.Terrific staff with great local recommendations. BEST EVER!!!!!

Nightly shows at Preservation Hall, where old-timers play authentic New Orleans jazz in a room with benches, a few chairs (room holds less than 50), no bar.....just wonderful up-close-and-personal JAZZ.

Great place in the French Quarter

The rooms are terrific. The building itself is pretty old (as you'd expect in this classic area), but the maintenance is outstanding. This is a perfect place to stay close to the insanity of Bourbon St. without being stuck ON Bourbon St. Friendly and helpful staff; parking is expensive, but that's typical for this area. I'd stay here again, no question.

Girlfriends gathering

This was one of the few places available in the Quarter that had both a pool and double beds available. It is on a very quiet street and away from the craziness of Bourbon St, but close enough to all the Quarter has to offer. Good breakfast is included in the room fee. There is also a hot tub/jacuzzi available which was welcome after a long day of walking. Highly recommend, would absolutely stay there again.

Great Getaway

The hotel staff was friendly and informative. The location was great; just a couple blocks away from Burbon street which was far enough not to be kept awake all night but close enough to walk. They provided a free drink ticket for their hotel lounge and the complimentary breakfast was great! The room was nice, the only complaint is that the mattresses were worn in the middle & small so the beds were hard to share.

Great Staff!

Hotel room was very small and dark, even for a handicap accessible room. Staff was lovely. Very helpful and chatted with us quite a bit to help us choose tours, restaurants, etc. Hotel location was nice and close to most things in french quarter. Steps to Bourbon street and far enough away that it wasn't too noisy. We did unfortunately have drunk girls screaming at 3am in the hallways. So if you are not into the drinking all day type of thing, look for a hotel a bit father from Bourbon street.

All top of the line restaurants are a short distance from the hotels front door. Anyway, with all that great food around you a good walk after dinner is good for you.

Best birthday ever!

The hotel staff was very accomodating from the moment we arrived...offering area information, restaurant coupons, etc. The continentental breakfast was wonderful...offering a large variety of foods that got us through until dinner time. The location was perfect...within walking distance to EVERYTHING and only a block away from Bourbon St. But, VERY quiet at night. The bedding was plush offering comfort and a good night's sleep after a busy day.
