Stayed at the Dauphine for 3 nights on my very first visit to NOLA. I was very impressed with almost every aspect of the hotel for the price I paid. The hotel is literally only a block away from Bourbon, yet quiet enough that you wouldn't even realize that fact in the evenings. The rooms are a bit on the small side, but this is to be expected for a boutique French Quarter hotel. The memory foam bed was heavenly! I would have liked to have had a small fridge for drinks and such, but it wasn't all that big of a deal. We were offered complimentary drink tickets and breakfast upon arrival, but unfortunately we never took advantage of them so I can't comment on the quality other than saying that I think it was amazing that they were included in the nightly rate. There is a parking garage in the hotel which costs $30/day. Seemed outrageous to me, but they can get away with it because parking space is at a premium in the FQ. Be sure to clarify with the front desk though what constitues a full day though! We arrived at 7pm and were told by the valet that we wouldn't be charged for that day, but ended up being charged at checkout for the full day. After some haggling with the front desk they finally reversed the charges. The hotel has a small saltwater pool onsite and a hot tub which can be accessed across the street at the Dauphine guest house courtyard using your room key. We really enjoyed grabbing drinks off Bourbon and bringing them back to the hotub on the chilly December nights! The hotel is really in an excellent location for walking the FQ. It is only a short walk to almost all the hotspots. (i.e. Cafe du Monde, French Market, St. Louis Cathedral). I was really pleased with my stay at the Dauphine, and would absolutely stay here again on my next visit to NOLA!
