“Definitely recommend if looking to stay in French Quarter”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

We just returned from a 4 night stay at the Dauphine Orleans. Location is outstanding (block from Bourbon, two blocks from Royal and a few blocks from Canal). We felt safe walking during the day and at night. Friends had a wedding there on Sunday night and we had a chance to take full advantage of all hotel amenities. The rooms adjacent to the courtyard have so much character with old exposed brick, rustic wood beams, some had a fireplace etc. We stayed up on the 4th floor in a beautiful king size room. Decent space and the room was clean, bed was comfortable, bathroom was clean and modern. Each room had a refrigerator. The front desk staff were pleasant and helpful but the service staff were so nice and friendly and went out of their way to say hi, ask how you were doing, etc. Breakfast was complimentary but we forgot it was included and never experienced it but heard it includes waffles, fresh fruit, yogurts, juices, breads, etc. We went to the bar in the hotel a few times and really enjoyed the service and recommendations from staff. Only downside to the main hotel was the musty scent and humidifiers would go a long way. The ducts are in need of a serious cleaning as well and you can see the build up of dust in them. The front desk area always smells like a perfume bottle exploded which should also be addressed. We would absolutely stay there again. Miss it already.

Room Tip: We stayed on the fourth floor and never heard anyone the entire time we were there. Room overlooke...

We recently stayed in New Orleans for several days and had a great time. The Dauphine Orleans hotel was very nice, clean and had a good breakfast . The bed was wonderful. The front desk manager Aisha Adams and the gentleman who works in the garage(didn't get his name) both wonderful employees..very helpful. The location was very good also, within walking to everything in the French Quarter. Close but fairly quiet, for New Orleans.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Dauphine Hotel. Its a great location in the French Quarter - walking distance to everything but not on one of the noisier streets. There a free continental breakfast and a free drink at the bar; the customer service was great (everyone was SO NICE!); the room was great - we had a small balcony with an adorable view over the rooftops of the neighborhood. I would 100% recommend and look forward to staying there again!

The hotel looks a lot better on the website than in reality ... badly in need of a refurbishment ... the hallways & rooms smelt musty, rooms are small, TV reception is awful, bathroom was dirty ... breakfast was reasonable, good wifi free was a bonus ... expect a lot more value for the high prices charged ... a good point on the location is that it is close to the Bourbon Street "action" but far enough that noise is not an issue ... am sure there are better in NO ...

We stayed in the "Hermann House" which is their building directly across the street from the hotel in room 238. The room had loads of wonderful character - exposed brick wall, vaulted ceiling with rustic support beams, shutters, etc., yet the room was modern and up to date. The bed was heavenly - a tempurpedic type mattress, and the room also included a refrigerator and safe. Internet connection was fast - even on the complimentary slow speed. The staff was wonderful - they recommended great places to eat and sites to see. They were friendly and attentive. Breakfast was complimentary and included waffles, and a deluxe continental fare with hard boiled eggs, sweet rolls, fresh fruit, yogurts, juices, breads, etc.

Room Tip: Ask to stay in the Hermann House on the 2nd floor - those rooms have the vaulted ceilings. Room 236...

We had 3 nights at Dauphine in February 2013, and thoroughly enjoyed the location. Only 1 block back from Bourbon, but incredibly quiet. The breakfast was great and we had fun making our waffles. The room was spacious and clean, but found the replacement of coffee/tea/creamer etc very poor. Although laughable to us, the access to the balcony by way of climbing through a push up window, could pose a bit difficult for some. We were also advised to place the outdoor table in the gap, just incase the window should came down. As we were under the impression the french quarter would be booked out, due to Super Bowl and Mardi Gras, we did our booking early (April 2012). The night before we were due to arrive, I checked the prices online. They were considerably cheaper than what I had been quoted. At checking in, I questioned this and asked if the lower price applied, but was told no, the prices change on a daily basis, but what I was quoted was the amount to be paid.

Location! Location! Location! A great stay using 2 rooms for 2 nights in December 2012. Very comfortable. Lovely balcony. Great breakfast. Special thank you to Front Desk Manager Aisha Adams for her graciousness. She outshone the other clerks.

Room Tip: Ask for garden view if you want to be away from the street noise.
