My three girlfriends and I decided to visit New Orleans for Hallowe'en. We just stumbled on the Cottages when we were searching for a hotel. They far exceeded our expectations!! We stayed four nights in Cottage 5. Prior to our arrival we asked our butler to have our room stocked with wine, beer, champagne and cheeses for our arrival. Amanda... More

We just returned from a 3 day stay in Cottage 6 which was a 1 bedroom unit, there was no sitting room. The room was very clean and comfortable. The place was an oasis with a beaurtiful pool and outdoor common areas. My wife and I enjoyed the quiet and comfort the property afforded. Based on the premium rates, I... More

The Audubon Cottages are just amazing. This place is often referred to as a "private Oasis" in New Orleans....that is putting it mildly. The cottages are are located in the heart of the city, yet you feel like you are in the middle on nowhere. You enter through a keyed private gate right off Dauphine St, and step into pure... More

We stayed in cottage 2. Lovely - looked exactly as shown in photos above. The hotel is one street away from the craziness of Bourbon St, but the minute you go through that door to the courtyard, you're in an oasis. Everything was beautiful upon arrival. The challenges were as follows: - since when does a butler not know the... More

This is a spectacular place to stay in New Orleans! The cottage we stayed in (No.1 - the two bedroom) is a gorgeous space with a large, comfortable living room and two beautiful bedrooms with private baths. The cottage has a private courtyard with a saltwater swimming pool that is well maintained. During our weekend stay, it seemed like we... More

I've always wondered about the cottages and courtyards of the French Quarter. To step through the green gate at 509 Dauphine was incredible. I was greeted by the French Quarter Butler, Amanda, who showed me to my cottage. The building had a private courtyard lined by a brick wall and plants. Even though Bourbon Street is only a block away,... More

I went online and looked at all the pictures of the cottages before getting to them and saw some absolutely beautiful images and expected that maybe the pics weren't going to live up to what I was expecting but once I walked into the cottages I was completely WOWed! My butler met me at the gate and helped me to... More

We were there four two nights and were I. Cottage 7. It was perfect I every way. Beautiful and comfortable room, great linen, minibar. Loved breakfasting. The courtyard. The pool was perfect. Just wanted to hang out there. It was the perfect place fora New Orleans summer trip. It's pricey but way more reasonable during the summer.

The Cottages are truly an oasis in the middle ( not quite the middle) of the French Quarter. The pictures on the website are quite accurate. The courtyard is lovely with the saltwater swimming pool, private entrance and tropical foliage. I stayed in Cottage #6 which shares a patio with the cottage beside it. Right outside my door is a...

I am so happy that I stayed here. It is one of the most beautiful, secluded, and wonderful retreats that I have ever been to. Initially, we had booked cottage #7, but when we arrived, the toilet in that cottage was broken. They upgraded us to cottage #3 for the price of #7. Classy. After checking into the Dauphine, we...
