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.

New Orleans

One elevator was broken when we arrived on Sunday and the front desk staff was very incommunicative. No one smiled or offered any specific assistance in getting us our room in a timely basis except one cocky desk clerk. We stayed at the Dauphine in November and it was great. We will not stay there again. Too many singles and very unruly. Staff very focused on african americans.

Friendly small old hotel - needs stimulu

People were very friendly but the room had a window that was sealed shut and the room was so small that it felt terribly closed in. The bathrooms need a shelf at least as it was too small to place our necessities. They were doing some paint-up while we were there, but it felt like too little for the overall need to redo. Almost shabby. It was New Orleans, and it was forgivable considering the last five years of struggling to return to being a great host city. Many, many of the other buildings were looking dirty, and in need of freshening up. Sidewalks often in big need of repair, and the garbage in the quarter seemed in the way and smelly. If they keep letting college kids take over the quarter they needn't bother. The history and the traditional jazz brings has brought us back countless times, but they seem to be loosing their roots. I hope the city regains it luster and my grandkids can enjoy it as much as we have.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

Everything is close for shopping and dining - even for us Seniors, but too many tee-shirt shops, and do people really need to sell those stupid glasses to drink from? It seems impossible that so many repetitive shops can possibly make it. Royal St. is still better, but it will probably take a few more years to recover the real posh feel it used to have.

Nice.

Hotel was far enough away from Bourbon to enjoy some quiet time. Lots of great places to eat nearby, and the hotel bar (May Bailey's) was the best bar we went to during our week in town. Room was average, not spotless but not dirty. No dresser in a king room meant living out of a suitcase for a week, which was disappointing. Flat screen tv in room was set up incorrectly, making it unwatchable. Tempurpedic bed was outstanding and very comfortable. Desk staff was ok, valet staff was great.

Oceana was the best cajun meal we had. The turtle soup is a 100 year old recipe, and it shows. Really great stuff.

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.

Location is best feature

Staff was friendly, helpful, and efficient. Rooms were small, and ours did not have a view, and abutted the parking garage which had its own daily ebb and flow, as heard particularly well from our bathroom. The pool is small, the fitness room, small. Location was really good -- just far away enough from the revelers of Bourbon Street. In comparison to Bienville House where I have also stayed, I prefer Bienville House.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

There is a take out window at Cafe du Monde, on the backside away from the street, if waiting for a table is prohibitive. Also, CC's Coffee House (several locations in the city) serves excellent coffee.

Needs maintainace~

The hotel has maintainance issues. The roof in my room leaked, the shower had mold growing in it, and in general the rooms need a good cleaning. I've stayed there many times, and this last visit was a disapointment. The hotel was short staffed, house keeping left a lot to be desired. Either they were pounding at the door at 8:00 AM or didn't get around to cleaning the room until 4:00 PM. I love the location. The next time I visit New Oreans I'll probably stay there, but be more carefull in inspecting the room before accepting the room.
