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.
