I just returned from a stay at the Dauphine Orleans Hotel. What a find! It is a block from Bourbon St in the French Quarter and surprisingly quiet. Upon arrival, my group of six (three rooms) were upgraded to the patio rooms across the street from the main hotel. The front desk staff was very friendly and suggested restaurants in the area. We used our key to access the courtyard. The rooms surrounded the courtyard with doors and shuttered windows. We had a very spacious room with exposed brick wall and beams on the ceiling. There was a large bathroom with a jacuzzi tub and bathrobes. The bed had a very comfortable memory foam mattress. Everything was very clean. There was a happy hour shortly after we arrived and we enjoyed a free drink over by the pool. We had an easy walk around the French Quarter and had a great dinner at Landry's followed by beignets at Cafe du Monde.
In the morning there is a breakfast with a variety of choices including make your own waffles, yogurt, fruit, juices and coffee and breads and cereals.
The history of the hotel is fun with a past of brothel and hospital. There is some documentation of hauntings. This is also the property where John Audubon completed his famous "Birds of America" series.
I would not hesitate recommending this property or returning to it. There was nothing I didn't love.
