“Stay with friends in New Orleans”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2006

We have stayed twice at La Dauphine, most recently for our daughter's graduation from Tulane in May 2006. If you expect white glove service and lavish breakfasts from a B&B, this is definitely not your kind of place, but if you want a true taste of New Orleans, then try La Dauphine. This big, old shotgun house is in the Faubourg Marigny, a diverse, delicious neighborhood adjacent to the French Quarter. Innkeepers Ray and Kim are relaxed and friendly, the rooms are large, and the courtyard garden is a delight. Prices are very reasonable. As other reviewers have mentioned, breakfast is self-serve, as is daily maid service (make up your own bed), and some of the bathroom arrangements are a little unconventional, but all of this adds to the authentictiy and funkiness of the experience. The long side hall is filled with books about New Orleans and other eclectic subjects, and the innkeepers are more than happy to assist you in finding good nearby restaurants, shops, or entertainment. They also maintain a large video library. Staying at La Dauphine is like having a second home in one of the most colorful neighborhoods in the world.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2006

We stayed at La Dauphine for Mardi Gras '06. It's a lovely little b&b in Fauborg Marigny, and the owners, Ray and Kim, are terrific hosts. We had the Alec Baldwin Suite, a lovely room, but perhaps better for a couple than for just two pals. Got a little cramped in there for us two gals! The bathroom (private but down the hall -- robes are provided) was fairly spacious and packed with reading material! :) A quibble on the bath was the shower... the doors were wobbly and difficult to close, the thing was tiny (um, we're big gals, to boot!), and, well, like many shower doors, the tracks were difficult to keep clean. Everything else was spotless, however. The resident dogs are wonderful. And the courtyard is a colorful delight! It's not far from the Quarter (a quick stroll down Frenchmen) -- definitely a bonus!
