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).

Good Hotel Good Price

You won't be disappointed unless your a HYATT or Four Seasons type person. The hotel was 1 block off of Bourbon street and a few blocks from the Trolley service and main roadway where you go to do your shoppings. It is a few blocks from everything: museums, history, antique shops, witchcraft, voodoo stuff, gay scene, churches all the sites. You can even find your way back home intoxicated. The valet parking was super expensive $33.00 per night but from my understanding that's everywhere. The gym A/C was down when I was there. The breakfast was average but free.

When walking on Bourbon Street there is a wing place east of Bourbon that's called Wings. It's awesome. BEWARE: The Court of PoBoy 612 and 614 Bourbon was nasty food and didn't offer refunds.

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.

Yearly Visit

Great location in French Quarter. Convenient to everything, including starting point for St. Charles Trolley, Acme Oyster House, etc. Very quiet despite being only one block from Bourbon. Continental breakfast is good, although we usually went to several nearby eateries. Great little bar on Conti right around the corner (Erin Rose) worth a visit just for the interior & exterior decor, esp near Halloween. Staff very helpful and friendly.

Oceana or Old Coffee Pot for breakfast. Acme Oyster House (best gumbo and bread pudding we've ever had).

Touring new orleans for the day

everything was perfect. Friendly people always willing to help you. Let us check in early but als had storage for luggage. Breakfast was great. Hotel room was clean. Was undergoing some renovation by the pool at the time so they had a scaffold set-up there. A couple blocks from canal street and the bus/riverfront trolly system at a $3 for a day pass. Great value for the price

Go 2 blocks to canal street and catch the trolly down to the riverfront and yo can transfer to the riverfront trolly and take it to various places along the riverfront and it also goes to the cruiseships so for a $1.25 no taxi needed!

A true gem!

my husband and i spent 4 nights in the French Quarter to celebrate our birthdays and we absolutely loved this hotel. The location is perfect, just steps from Bourbon Street. We got free continental breakfast, drinks and staff could not be any friendlier. I would definitely come back.

You must make it to Galatoire's the service and food are to die for. Men must wear a jacket, but the experience is worth it.

Christmas In The Quarter

My husband and I had a great stay at the Dauphine for the week in between Christmas and New Year. The hotel is right in the French Quarter, but on a fairly quiet street. The room we had was big enough for the 2 of us, and had a tempurpedic mattress! The staff was very friendly and helpful, and we really enjoyed the complimentary breakfast. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Coop's Place on Decatur Street has the most amazing jambalaya with rabbit, alligator sausage, crawfish, shrimp, and in house made tasso! And, it's really reasonably priced. I will go there again and again.

Fantastic New Orleans

The hotel is in the centre of the French Quarter, one street away from Bourbon Street which is the centre of the action. There was a parade the day we arrived which was a real eye opener. Parking was by valet on the premises. This was expensive but considering the location and the similar rates being charged nearby, it was acceptable and was certainly convenient. Only downside in the Hotel was that when it was raining there was no cover or umbrellas provided to get past the pool area to the breakfast room.

Anything goes in the French Quarter. 24 hour entertainment and action if you can keep up. A safe environment but a real eye opener and not to be missed.

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 French Quarter spot on the cost-quality frontier

I just got married and we stayed at the Dauphine Orleans for our honeymoon last week. It was wonderful! Here are some pros: 1) Location is AMAZING. 1 block from Bourbon Street, right in the middle of the Quarter, and yet still quiet and safe. 2) Room was large, clean, and comfortable. Our bed was ridiculously comfortable, which was nice for our twice-daily naps in between eating fests. 3) Staff were friendly, polite, and helpful in every possible way. 4) Free continental breakfast was better than any continental breakfast I've had before. Waffles, fresh fruit, yogurt, plus all the more expected options. 5) Did I mention the location? Because it really is stellar. Honestly, there's no con I can come up with. This isn't a 5-star hotel, obviously, so sure, the lobby area could be bigger, everything could be larger and shinier &c, but for the price and given the location, I think you get a really great value. Plus it is a really unique and interesting place to stay.
