“Our second visit”
Reviewed November 19, 2013

Our first stay at this hotel was in June 2009, and since we had a very positive experience, we decided to stay here again on our most recent trip. Other people have already mentioned the convenient location, charming courtyards, comfy beds, and included amenities (breakfast, internet, bottled water, etc). We liked and used all of these. Last time, we had a room fronting Dauphine Street and the noise was unbearable for me, so this time I wisely asked for a room back from the street and it was so much quieter. We stayed in the Hermann House across the street from the main hotel and it was wonderful. You have to use your key to unlock the gate and it often took us more than one swipe but eventually the key would work.

Everything was great except for the hotel bar. Our first night, we were tired but decided to use our free drink coupons. Although no one was smoking in the bar at the time, it still had a strong cigarette smell. My husband wasn't feeling great so he just ordered a soft drink and was ridiculed by the bartender for his choice. We left a standard tip on the table but now I wish I hadn't been so generous, as he later told me that the bar was the worst thing about the entire trip. But other than the bartender's comments, we enjoyed our stay at the Dauphine Orleans and we will strongly consider this hotel for future trips.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the street if you are a light sleeper. We love the Hermann House courtyard...

While attending a professional convention in New Orleans, we stayed at this hotel. It is, at best, a 3 star hotel; though the staff is friendly and accommodating. Decor is in need of a face-lift.

We were located in room 326, with a view out on Dauphine St. For three nights, we heard every single noise that went by the building--Bourbon St. clientele go by until 3 a.m., garbage trucks/delivery trucks start up at 6 a.m., motorcycles, cars honking constantly. I suppose this is "par for the course" when one chooses a hotel in the French Quarter. However, in my humble opinion, these very noisy rooms should not be used as guest accommodations, unless advertised as such, with a huge discount!! The older, main building rooms could definitely use a good update and thorough cleaning (we noticed a glass beer bottle behind nightstand, and half-emptied drinks in mini-fridge from previous patrons). There is also noticeable wear and tear in bathrooms.

The courtyard and pool area is quaint and pretty. This is a nice area to bring back some good take-out on a good-weather day.

We heard that some of the newer rooms were much nicer--be sure to find out the particulars with reservations, as we did not know this beforehand.

Two alcoholic (or non) drinks are included at adjacent May Baily's bar with stay. *Warning- this bar is a bit dark & dank, and smells badly of (animal?) urine. The bar building itself, though, has an interesting history and decor as a former brothel, "May Baily's Place," during the 1897-1917 red-light-district days of the FQ. *

Very good hotel for visiting New Orleans. Rooms are nothing special but very clean and bed was very comfortable. Location is PERFECT. We didn't rent a car and were able to explore bourbon street and surrounding areas very easily.

Friendly staff and you get free drink at the bar next door. pool area is small, but very pretty and relaxing. continental breakfast was nice, nothing too special but enough for a quick bite in the morning. Would definitely stay here again.

I've been reading the reviews for the past 2 months until I actually stayed at the hotel from Saturday-Tuesday and was quite impressed with the cleanliness, friendliness of staff, room and last but not least, the pool! My only knock on the place was the TV system because it was a disaster and had to call the engineering staff daily to have the system reset so I think mgmt should ditch this system and use the local cable provider, Cox or another satellite system. We were not in the room except late at night but it got irritating to call the Front Desk to attend to this issue. However, the front desk person, Stephanie was very open to calling the manager on duty, Shawn and get a credit on my account. It was very professional and courteous and appreciate the gesture. Therefore, I'll definitely be interested in returning on my next visit to the Big Easy!

The hotel has a great location above Bourbon Street and other than the daily garbage truck, external noise was kept to a minimum and it is so easy to walk in the French Quarter to the many restaurants, bars and clubs in the area. Josh was so helpful, informative and friendly about restaurants, activities and things to do in the City and represented the hotel in a professional manner. I'll definitely recommend this hotel to future travelers to the Crescent City and the breakfast was mediocre at best so if you're looking for a better breakfast, go to Mothers on Poydras Street for their brunch or Court of Two Sisters on Royal Street. Josh recommended Louisana bistro, a block from the hotel and their food was delicious and order the Louisana Couvillon, a seafood dish comprised of fish,shrimp,andouille sausage and rice. Good call!

Room Tip: If you're in the main hotel, pick a room away from Dauphine Street to avoid the daily garbage tr...

Our regular king room on the 4th floor in the main building was very comfortable. The bath was good size with ample, good quality, towels and toiletries. The robe is a nice touch. It was very clean and the climate control worked well. The staff is friendly and helpful. The free breakfast and free WIFI also add to the value. The location is very convenient to everything yet so quiet. I only regret that I didn't spot any of the resident ghosts.
