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).

Very unpleasant manager

The room itself was nice but the elevators were out of order for the majority of my trip, including when I was checking out and had to lug my bags down four flights of stairs.

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.

Great Staff!

Hotel room was very small and dark, even for a handicap accessible room. Staff was lovely. Very helpful and chatted with us quite a bit to help us choose tours, restaurants, etc. Hotel location was nice and close to most things in french quarter. Steps to Bourbon street and far enough away that it wasn't too noisy. We did unfortunately have drunk girls screaming at 3am in the hallways. So if you are not into the drinking all day type of thing, look for a hotel a bit father from Bourbon street.

Great Location

It's certainly not the fanciest place in the Quarter, but I had no complaints. Our room was clean, comfortable and quiet, and the front desk staff was nice and helpful. Pool is a little on the small side, but it's a cute little courtyard, and Mae Baily's bar is just steps away if you need to grab a drink. Obviously, the main reason to stay here is location - just a block away from Bourbon, but away from all the noise and craziness. The complimentary breakfast is nothing special, but convenient if you want to grab something light before heading out. We got a good deal on the hotel and would recommend it to others.

Great Location

Rooms are comfortable, but no open window/balcony. Nice size bathroom. Don't bring a car, parking prices are crazy! Great breakfast to start the day without searching for a restaurant. Location is perfect - clean and safe walking.

Sightseeing tip: Not Applicable

If this is your first trip to NOLA, take the Katrina/City tour. Dixie Tours picks you up at your hotel and gives a 3 hour tour of the city and of the devastation and rebuild efforts, plus the cemetary! Go on-line for a $5 discount per person.

Great French Quarter Hotel

Great place, a block off Bourbon - close enough for all the action without all the noise at night! The bathrooms could be a bit larger for me personally but the shower was great, the beds are comfy and the downstairs bar is convenient!

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.

Buy a daily $3.00 pass for the trolley. It allows boarding as many times as needed within 24hrs. Passes can be purchased at any of the stops.

Great place in the French Quarter

The rooms are terrific. The building itself is pretty old (as you'd expect in this classic area), but the maintenance is outstanding. This is a perfect place to stay close to the insanity of Bourbon St. without being stuck ON Bourbon St. Friendly and helpful staff; parking is expensive, but that's typical for this area. I'd stay here again, no question.
