“Great location and wonderful atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2010

I can't imagine staying at a better place in NOLA. We stayed in the building across the street from the main hotel and it had a lovely courtyard - it was very peaceful and serene. The room was spacious and newly decorated with a small refrigerator (great for leftover food from the many wonderful restaurants). It was very close to the action, yet it seemed very far removed from the craziness of Bourbon St. The hotel staff is gracious and very good at making restaurant recommendations (Deanie's Seafood is close by and terrific). We also enjoyed our complimentary drink at Mae Baileys and the continental breakfast. A fairly basic continental breakfast, but you could eat it outside in their lovely courtyard near one of their pools. Rates are good - and they sometimes run specials, such as complimentary parking. This is a great place to stay in NOLA.

We stayed here the weekend before St. Patrick's Day 2010, which was a very busy weekend. Because many hotels were booked to capacity, we did not get the best rate, but we would be willing to give them another chance in the future because everything else was so great. We were placed in the building across the street from the main hotel (Hermann House, I think they call it). Our room was a bit small for the price. But it was clean and well appointed, the bed was really comfortable, and the bathroom was larger than many places we've stayed in NOLA. Once parking, taxes, and fees were added, however, the room was nearly $300/night. And the size of the room warranted a rate of $179 at best. Price was our only complaint. The location is wonderful. The staff was super helpful and friendly. We loved the jacuzzi in the courtyard. Great for soaking tired feet at the end of the day. This hotel is a nice blend of NOLA charm and modern amenities. Furnishings and fixtures are clean and up-to-date (flat screen tv mounted on the wall, bathtub with jacuzzi jets, free WiFi). But charm does not suffer. The room door seemed to be a former window that had been transformed into a door. The courtyard was lush and well-kept. May Bailey's is a great bar and a quiet retreat after the noise of Bourbon Street. Note, however, the free drink with check-in is for beer and wine only.

Excellent location, a block away from Bourbon (close enough), and far enough from its noise and croud. If you are exploring the French Quarter this is a very good option to stay at. They allowed us to check in as we arrived, 2 hours prior to check in. Room was spacious, and king bed was awsome!. Bathroom very clean, w/ enough room and well equiped. Would definetly stay there next time at NOLA.
Bayona restaurant in front of Hotel was excellent!. Also, if you like Tequila, Rita's Tequila about 2 blocks away from hotel had a very good selection, and is also a quite/upscale spot in the middle of the Bourbon Street rumble.

Our stay at the Hotel Dauphine was amazing. Once we arrived we upgraded to a King room with a balcony which we did not regret since the views were amazing. The entire staff were friendly and accommodating. They answered all of our questions and gave helpful suggestions that made our first trip to New Orleans memorable. The best thing of all was the location, however, as we were literally one block from the center of Bourbon Street.

Great hotel potential The complimentary continental breakfast is way more than that and the Ladies that keep it running are great. The group of people that clean the room and supply the amenities in the rooms including a robe do a good job It has an on sight bar May Baileys great escape from the craziness of NO and a lot of locals come in that's always a good sign. Our room was very small for two but decorated very nicely but the really bad part was the noise not from the street from the underground garage and I guess people who walked in and out of that area including anyone who worked there late at night between the beeping locks of cars and the loud voices sleeping was difficult on top of that there were workmen with power tools at 8 a.m. come on even in suburbia people are not allowed to make loud noises until at least after 9 a.m. I wanted to let the management know about this before i left cause I would really like to come back to this hotel it has so much to offer I didn't get that the day guy cared but there was a young guy who comes in around 11 he at least said he was sorry for the noise I still would give this a thumbs up but be careful where your room is and hopefully the people who work there will realize the walls are thin keep your voices down

We did plenty of research when we selected a hotel and it really paid off. The location is unbeatable, one block north of Bourbon in the heart of the French Quarter. You can walk everywhere. The staff is courteous and helpful. The rooms had a New Orleans flair to them, were clean and had good water pressure. The beds were awesome, it was hard getting out of bed in the morning. The morning breakfast is free and has the standard continental items. When weather is good you can eat outside. The bar on premises is also very nice.

I highly recommend. Constructive criticism would be to update the elevator finishes, they were a little beat up, but who goes to New Orleans to critique elevators!
