We stayed at the Dauphine Orleans for the Rock N Roll marathon. The location was near perfect to get to everything in the French Quarter, and is just a block off the really noisy bits. If we were to do the marathon again, though, I think I'd go closer to the convention center or stay on Poydras directly, just for the added convenience. Regardless it was still close enough to walk to the convention center and shuttles.
Everyone working there was really nice and had great advice. The breakfast was a well stocked typical hotel breakfast bar. The only downside to our room was that it was right over the garage and any time someone remotely locked a car the horn echoed through the room. I would stay here again, but not on the 2nd floor.
Elevator service is very quick, and the courtyard is nice. You will have to walk through outdoor space to get to the bar and breakfast, so consider that in your plans if there's rain. Next time we'll go without the kids and really take advantage of all they had to offer.
