“Great place but poor accommodation.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

Second time in a row we made reservations months in advance and we asked for a certain type of room and were denied when we arrived. We have been staying at Dauphine Orleans for years! We love the coziness of the place in general and the bar is great but not sure if we will stay again if the room is not right for us.

On a quick trip to New Orleans we stayed at the Dauphine. It's close to good restaurants, Bourbon Street and shops. The staff was very helpful and their breakfast was a great start to the day. Only complaint was that we had to climb stairs to our room. After a long day of walking and shopping stairs were a hurdle.

Room Tip: Find a room where you don't have to walk stairs because their rooms were great otherwise.

Quaint, charming, quiet hotel just 2 short blocks from bourbon street. Love the pool, courtyard, breakfast, and may baileys place bar. Tons of character and French quarter charm and in a great location- close to all the action!

The Dauphine Orleans is in a great spot relative to Bourbon Street and great restaurants in the French Quarter. The hotel has a really neat history (don't want to spoil the story, but make sure to read the brief history in the hotel books in the room).

Room Tip: Suggest a room in the main part of the hotel closer to the center of the property. We stayed in the...

We love this little hotel. It's steps from Bourbon St and all the crazy action but quiet. Surrounded by great restaurants, antique shops, jewellery shops, bars and cafes. A short walk from the square and the cathedral. A stroll to the French Market.
The rooms are spacious with King beds, a little shabby but who cares. The staff are very helpful. Take their tour recommendations.

The hotel is very nice. We got a good price through Hotel Tonight and we are more than satisfied. Memory foam bed, plenty of towels, quiet, in other words, just perfect for what we wanted. There are several connected building with courtyards and pathways between them. It gives you the feel of exactly how old the buildings are. Its location is prime as well. There are lots of excellent restaurants and music venues within an easy walk. Besides, they have a few ghosts.

For our first visit to New Orlean, I have to admit I was a bit sceptical and wasn't sure what to expect for a hotel in downtown NOLA - however, I was blown away by the charm and exceptional character of The Dauphine and would definitely stay again! We stayed for 4 nights across the street in a Premium Hermann King Room. The exposed brick walls and ceiling beams added so much character to the room. Complimentary breakfast and wifi were a bonus. Very clean and great location. Amazingly quiet given how close to Bourbon St the hotel is.

Room Tip: The Hermann rooms across the street have fantastic charm and a lovely courtyard garden.
