Staying at Dauphine Orleans Hotel was such a pleasant experience.. The staff (esp Ayeesha) was so accommodating.. She even upgraded our room to a courtyard suite.. I suggest you get a courtyard room so that you'll have access to a small garden where it's so nice to have coffee and read a book.. I loved the room we had with it's brick walls, and wooden beams. It's so old-timey.. It's only a block away from Bourbon Street, so you're close to the action, but not too close to be bothered by the noise.. The free drink at May Maison was a great way to end our first night in N'awlins.. Plus free breakfast and free wifi.. Will definitely stay here again!!
