“Fantastic hostess, great location!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

We spent Mardi Gras week at Karen's charming bed & breakfast. As first-timers to New Orleans, she helped us out with recommendations on attractions, tours and restaurants with our own highlighted map of the area. We were within walking distance of the French Quarter, the Mardi Gras parades and the street car lines. This is a wonderful place to stay, quaint and off the beaten path, but so close to the action. Karen is truly a wonderful ambassador for the city and so welcoming in her home. We will be planning another trip to New Orleans and will definitely pay Karen another visit!

Room Tip: The green room at the front of the house has very very light foot traffic, but not enough to keep yo...

I was visiting NOLA for the first time, came a day early for a conference, and didn't know where I was going to stay that night- my sister booked a surprise stay for me at the Dauphine House, sight unseen, and I am so glad she did! The location was excellent, room beautiful and very comfortable, and the backyard is cute. I'd definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for great service, great location (I LOVED walking all the way from the B&B to downtown and back- the neighborhoods are gorgeous and so interesting), comfortable bed, sound sleep, and accommodating host.

Karen and her Dauphine House B&B are just perfect! Karen is very attentive without being intrusive to your vacation. She was always a call or text away if we needed her. The House is so close to walk to everything, yet far enough to have a quiet nights sleep. We stayed 4 days had great service from the moment we arrived to the moment our super cabbie picked us up to go to the airport. I am amazed at what a great price our rooms were - especially for the city, location and amenities in the room. The breakfast baskets were very full of freshly made pastries and fruits, half gallon of OJ in the fridge - and great coffee! All of Karen's recommendations were right on...especially the Cooking School of New Orleans...great for both guys and gals. Thank you Karen for a great stay - we will be back!

Room Tip: The back room does have a bigger bath area which will give you privacy for changing and storing suit...

I recently spent 3 nights at the Dauphine House with my 3 best friends. Everything about it was wonderful. Karen is the quintessential Southern hostess. She is warm, welcoming, and prepared. She gave helpful suggestions and always chatted with us when she saw us, but left us alone to explore New Orleans at our leisure. The house is located close enough to the action, but far enough away to have peace and quiet when you want it. It is charming, clean and comfy. The breakfast basket was overflowing with yummy treats which she replenished every day. We had the 2 rooms off the main street. They share a "foyer" entrance so we just kept our bedroom doors open most of the time and we felt like we were at home. The quietest room is the smallest but has the biggest bathroom. The other room is large, but with a small bathroom and some street noise. We did not have a car and it was just fine. We took a cab back to Dauphine one night as Karen suggested not walking home late at night (which is true for any city.) I loved this place and it would be my first choice if I return to New Orleans.

We had an excellent stay. Karen was a helpful hostess and told us everything we needed to know about getting around in New Orleans. The house was near enough for us to walk to the places we needed to go. The breakfast treats were delicious, and we found ourselves very comfortable in our room.

First, Karen is the most excellent hostess! She has many great suggestions and tips for making the most out of your New Orleans visit. The room was comfortable, the breakfast basket was bountiful, and the chicory coffee was delicious! We were able to walk everywhere--early morning Mass at St Louis Cathedral, restaurants, shopping, bars, Canal Street ferry to Algiers. We really enjoyed our trip to the New Orleans Rum Distillery! We have already recommended Dauphine House to other family members!

The Dauphine House is perfectly situated to be close to the action in both the Quarter and the Fauborg Marigny (3 blocks from Frenchman St), yet still be far enough away to be quiet and peaceful. Karen is an extremely attentive and helpful hostess, but does not hover over her guests. She is willing to go above and beyond expectations and truly made for a wonderful visit. I only wish that she had more rooms so it was not so hard to find open dates. :-)
