I have been staying at Dauphine House for almost a decade now, and unless forced to, I would not stay ANYWHERE else in New Orleans. Located one block off Esplanade, it is close enough to the French Quarter for easy access, but far enough away from the craziness for a good night's sleep. Within walking distance of many good restaurants (La Peniche, Port o Call, and Mona Lisa's to name three) as well as many excellent music clubs. It's a short walk to the Riverfront Streetcar, as well. The hostess has, over the years, become a friend rather than just some stranger we pay to stay in her house. I absolutely cannot recommend Dauphine House highly enough!!
