Ray and Kim have nailed the details at La Dauphine - the bed linens and towels were nicer than I have at home! The wi-fi connection was consistent and the bed was wonderfully comfortable. We stayed in the Matisse room and I've rarely felt so instantly at ease in a space. We're accustomed to staying in other parts of New Orleans that have more traffic and noise, and we found the neighborhood around la Dauphine to be extremely quiet and serene. Ray clued us in to coffee shops and restaurants just a few blocks away, and we found them to be affordable and full of locals. La Dauphine is a great place to stay if you want to be within "striking distance" of the city's tourist attractions, but not in the thick of things. We couldn't have asked for more congenial hosts and we enjoyed several lively and interesting chats. Hoshi and Tanuki are polite and affectionate and they helped us not miss our own dog so much! We will definitely be back...can't wait to see you again, Ray and Kim!
