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).

Pretty, central French Quarter property.

Good location - across the street from Bayona. The hotel packs quite a few amenities into a smaller property including a pool and free wi-fi. My only complaint would be what I think was morning garbage collection which woke me up every day. Overall, they thought of most things you would need and/or want.

Would definitely stay again!

Location is excellent! We've stayed many places in the French Quarter and rank this location very high! A good distance away from Canal, which is nice...not too close. We initially were concerned about being 1 block off Bourbon, but it was never an issue with noise, even though we were there over Halloween weekend. Clean and comfortable rooms. Elevators were nice and fast (a problem at some other places!). The staff was very friendly and helpful. We were very early for check in, and they immediately took our bags to the storage area. We returned a little before check in and the room was ready. Desk staff was always welcoming and friendly. Garage/Bell staff also very friendly, willing to have conversation any time. The housekeeping staff was also very friendly and respectful of do not disturb signs. We would definitely stay here again.

Great location and beautiful atmosphere

I loved the fact that it's in an old building, so it has courtyards and character. It is only a block away from Bourbon Street but it's extremely quiet at night. It's a great location if you're interested in checking out the French Quarter. Very walkable distance to Canal Street (and the Canal streetcar), Jackson Square, the French Market, Bourbon Street, and so on.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

Sign up for a combo swamp and plantation tour with Cajun Pride Swamp Tours. They pick you up at your hotel and take you to their own swamp on their own wildlife preserve and then to a plantation. The swamp is about a half hour from the French Quarter and the plantation is another half hour beyond that. Reasonable prices.

Anniversary trip

This was our second time staying at this hotel. The staff is excellent, the complimentary breakfast has enough choices for even the pickiest eater, and the location is great. It's one block from Bourbon Street, yet you can't hear any of the revelry in your room. Our only complaint would be that both times we booked online and got a room whose view was of a brick wall. There are many charming courtyard views, but I guess you have to call personally to get those rooms, as they were not available to switch to when we arrived.

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.

Enjoyed a great Mardi Gras celebration

The hotel is conveniently located for the Mardi Gras celebration. A short walk to the Mardi Gras parades viewing on Canal Street and only a block from Bourbon Street. There are many fine restaurants within walking distance. The staff made us feel right at home.

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.

First Time in New Orleans

The staff were very friendly and service was excellent. The hotel room was clean and comfortable. The view from the room was not much and the single pane window Allowed any sound to be heard in the room.

The garden district was just a quick jump on the trolley and a great way to spend the day. Make sure you hop on the green trolley, not the red one.
