As a travel writer from Austalia who has been to New Orleans dozens of time, I've stayed at most of the mid-to-top level hotels in the French Quarter and Garden District. The Dauphine is one I am happy to call home multiple times and they have a few other great hotels as well as the Audubon Cottages in their group as well.
The staff are superb from the parking attendants with their sage advice on what's hot and not to the front desk girls and guys who know you by name immediately and make you feel at home. It's not an ostentatious or overly plush venue but one that is supremely comfortable from the lobby to the rooms, from the pool to the famous bar which exudes charm.
Thankfully it's a couple of blocks from Bourbon Street so you are not exposed to the noise and yahoos but still a convenient and safe stroll. It's also only a couple of blocks from Canal Street where you can catch busses as wel as the glorious trams that head out to the Riverbend and Garden District. So convenience is one of the plusses that this well maintained property can boast as well as its own parking garage which beats the street for easy auto transfer and storage,
I've stayed in a variety of rooms and loved them all. There are bungalows over the pool which I eagerly anticipate staying in when they are available.Like I said, they run the Audubon Cottages which are magic with their own private gardens, antiques and unique room layouts. Plus the rooms on the various floors are quiet, spacious and clean with the housekeeping staff always on the case keeping the hotel pretty, neat and inviting. A real oasis for the Nawlins habitue.
