My wife and I stayed at the Dauphine Orleans Hotel from June 21-23, 2013. I'll start with its location. One block away from Bourbon St. yet very quiet day or night. It has two buildings--one on each side of Dauphine Street. Our first night was in the secondary building-the Hermann building. The room was very quaint and spacious. We went to dinner and returned around midnight for bed only to have to hear the guests above us having sex. Luckily this only lasted a minute. What kept us up till 3am was the noise from their constant walking. It sounded like a thunderous herd of elephants. So the next morning I asked the front desk to switch us to another room. Ashley Noble was working the front desk, and she was awesome! She moved us over to the main building into room 103. A smaller room but we were now on the uppermost level with only one neighbor to our right and no one below us. Perfect solitude! Ok for a quick listing of amenities provided by the hotel: vouchers for a drink at the bar, cookies and tea every afternoon, complimentary bottled water, free wifi, large safe in rooms. Very cool pool and patio area. Complimentary breakfast buffet every morning. Overall, we would definitely recommend this hotel to others.
