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).

Weeknights in New Orleans

Overall, we had a very pleasant experience at Dauphine Orleans Hotel. The location is fantastic as it is located one block away from Bourbon Street. The noise from Bourbon does not reach the hotel, but fun is certainly close by. The check-in staff was very courteous as was the valet attendant. The room was very clean and had a nice feel to it. The only complaints regarding the room were that the water pressure was severely lacking and that the outside walls did let in a lot of noise from the parking garage. I would recommend taking earplugs if you happen to end up on the parking garage side of the hotel. Breakfast was included and was above average.

Great location but there must have been some flooding to the hotel from Hurricane Isacc. The entire hotel smelled like laundry tha no one dried. The carpet in my room was wet as well. Once the place dry's out I am sure it will be a place worth the price.

At first glance and second impression....

When I first went into the room, I thought "this is pretty dark." I had worried I had made the wrong choice. I was right off the court yard and there was a group of people standing right by our door talking loudly. I was a slightly concerned about the choice I had made. After walking around the Quarter and dropping off to sleep that night, my partner and I had woke up and heard no one else around and completely refreshed. The bed was exceptionally comfortable and you could not hear any noise from the street nor Bourbon street which is one block away. The bathroom was really clean (as was New Orleans itself, very surprising for a New Yorker who knows a dirty city) and the shower was also great. The room was dark and the decor looked and felt dated but I plan on going back to the Dauphine on my next visit as the location and the overall atmosphere and comfort really made made trip!
