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).

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.

Great staff & location in the heart of the Quarter

The staff was great and the location could not be beat as it was 1 block off the main strip. Quite, clean, and helpful in every way.

Dauphine

This hotel deserves better than 3 stars. Very clean and a good location. The staff was okay, but really didn't have the friendly, welcome attitude you like to see in a staff. Fortunately, I didn't need them because everything was fine.

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.
