“An enjoyable small hotel experience”
Reviewed 7 February 2012

I was part of a large group that stayed at the Dauphine Orleans over a long weekend in early February. The hotel is in a very nice location, within walking distance of restaurants like Acme Oyster House, Eat, Jagerhaus, Oceana Grill, Desire Oyster Bar, and Deanie's. One short block and you're on Bourbon (but you don't hear the noise) and one more to Royal. The staff was very friendly and helpful, often offering their assistance even before you could ask. The rooms are fairly small (main building), but clean. Our room faced the parking garage, so there wasn't much to look at from our balcony. The memory foam mattress was very comfortable. The bar (May Bailey's) makes for a nice meeting place and the bartender, Sarah, does her job well. The breakfast was more than continental but not a full spread (waffles, hard boiled eggs, cereals, fruit, yogurt, bagels, etc.). The breakfast area opens at 6:30 AM on weekdays and 7:00 AM on weekends, so early risers like me don't have to wait for that first cup of coffee (however, there is a cup-at-a-time coffeemaker in the room). I was expecting the hotel to be a bit more upscale. There are improvements they could make in the way of general maintenance that would give the place more appeal, but it was still an enjoyable small hotel experience.

I was just in New Orleans the last weekend of Jan 2012. I chose the Dauphine off of Trip Advisor and I wasn't dissappointed! The outside was charming in the typical French Quarter style. The Pool area was quite charming as well and was located in the interior courtyard with balconies looking down on the pool.

I stayed in the main part of the hotel and the room was modern and above all CLEAN!!!!! and was nicely furnished. The maid service was great, and very attentive when you call. The coffee and bottled water was a great amenity.

They gave us towels aplenty, a blowdryer and a safe (which we didn't need because we felt that safe in this hotel). I can't stress enough how clean and new everything was.

Our room was ready when we arrived at 11AM on a Saturday morning. It is 2 streets away from Bourbon Street, so close enough to be near the craziness but far enough to not even hear the night life.

Staff was very friendly and got us cabs when needed. It is about 7 minutes from Jackson Square if you walk fast, 15 minutes if you walk slow.

We slept through the night and morning without any noise waking us up.

The 'Deluxe Continental Breakfast' was a little lacking, but it was free and the coffee was good, and they had 'to go' coffee cups.

Room Tip: The main hotel area was very clean and modern.

Spent a total of 13 nights at the Dauphine, pre and post cruise with NCL. Most staff were excellent, friendly, and willling to stop for a quick chat. Had some small issues with our room and both were attended to quickly. We spent our pre cruise nights in a balcony room over Dauphine Street...too noisy most nights for my liking but our pre teens slept through the bar crowds heading home. The weather was also a bit lower than average some day so to sit on the balcony required a blanket. Nothing special about the continental breakfast, waffles, hard boiled eggs, sausage, breads and pastries, fresh fruit, cold cereals, yogurt, juices and coffee/tea/hot chocolate. Almost no variety in the choice of fruits or pastries over the 10 days we initially spent. The rooms were clean, quiet in terms of hotel noise, but unfortunately the balcony doors do not keep out the street noise very well. Regular room amenities...coffee, free wi-fi, refrigerator (in the balcony room), robes, hairdryer, soaps and shampoos (no body/hand lotion). The beds were very comforable! We found the location great, close to everything we needed. The most disappointing part of our stay was THE POOL IS NOT HEATED as advertised!
While in NOLA we rode the trollery cars to uptown/garden district as well as to City Park for Celebration in the Oaks (ok, was expecting more spectacular), made a visit to the zoo (excellent), the aquarium (interesting), the insectarium (very educational), took a plantation/airboat tour (well worth the money), managed to see the Saints at the Superdome (wow, but not impressed with the fan who blew his noise maker in front of us and wouldn't stay seated), ate at many great restaurants and heard alot of great music! I would definitely go back again.

Room Tip: Balcony rooms not recommended for light sleepers!

This was our first trip to NO. Wanted to find a hotel close to Bourbon St. This was perfect! Pleasantly suprised by how big the room and bathroom were! The continental breakfast was one of the better ones we've had. The coffee was awesome too! Staff was very helpful as well! Can't wait to get back to NO and looking foward to staying at the Dauphine again!

Room Tip: Try to get a room away from the street...a little noisy in the morning (garbage trucks, etc)

Staff is friendly and helpful. Rooms in the main hotel are of a typical modern standard. Good value with the included continental breakfast, and great location. You might want to beware of the rooms that face the brick wall of the alley; there will be some noise from garbage pickup early in the morning, though none from the street partiers. Best bet for quiet might be one of the pool-facing rooms. You'll get a free drink ticket for the attached May Bailey's bar, a nice way to start your foray into the Quarter for the evening. It is also located immediately by one of the city's (and the country's) top dining spots, Bayona. But the whole Quarter is within easy walking distance, as is Congo Square/Louis Armstrong Park. No restaurant, so no room service, though I'd imagine the desk knows which places will deliver, if that's what you're looking for.

Room Tip: Rooms which face the alley may get some early morning garbage pickup noise. Jacuzzi bath was welcome...
