We wanted to stay in a hotel with character in New Orleans, and the Dauphine fit the bill. It is a lovely historic hotel, located a block off Bourbon Street in the French Quarter. Everything in the French Quarter is within easy walking distance. We stayed in a room with balconies overlooking the parking garage - did not hear a sound all night until garbage pickup at 6:30am. The room was not luxurious, but clean and the beds were comfortable. The small pool is clean and well maintained, and the courtyard lounge chairs look comfy - unfortunately the weather did not cooperate while we were in town! The breakfast has a good selection - options included boiled eggs, croissants, make your own waffles, and surprisingly good orange juice. The tea and cookies in the afternoon were also a nice touch. We were able to check in a little early, although not as early as we had hoped (and were originally told). We arrived around 9:15 and left our luggage with the bellhops. The front desk staff were able to assign us a room, and told us it would be ready in about 45 minutes, but it was still not ready when we returned at 10:30. We were finally able to check in when we returned around 11:45. Just a minor annoyance, but I would have preferred not to be told that our room would be ready in 45 minutes when it actually took 2 and a half hours (they had literally just finished cleaning it at 11:45). If you arrive early, I would recommend just leaving your luggage .and not bother checking back until either they call you or regular check in time arrives. Overall, I would definitely recommend this hotel.
