“A Southern playdate.”
Reviewed 22 November 2013

Although the location is just one block from the craziness of Bourbon Street, it's a quiet and quaint, getaway in the middle of all that's the French Quarter. There are two buildings. One the main hotel and then across the street is another building. We stayed in the auxiliary building on the second floor. The staff were very friendly and helped make our stay a memorable one. The breakfast was a nice perk along with the free drink in the hotel bar.
The negative is that there is several items of deferred maintenance around the room and buildings. The smell of mold is so very strong in the building where the Breakfast room and bar are located. No amount of incense and candles can cover that. For the few days I was there it was not an issue since I thankfully don't have a strong allergy to mold. I most likely would return becuase of the people that work there.

The room was quiet, clean and a great feel. Loved the brick walls and vaulted ceiling. the room is small but done nicely with nice furniture, marble countertop and jacuzzi tub. the courtyard was quiet, peaceful and gave you that New Orleans feel.

Room Tip: Ask for the Herman house or I hear the cottages are very nice as well. The staff is amazingly over...

Clean, Quality Hotel. Always a hotel employee around, so in so far as security, always felt safe.
Clean rooms, The staff was excellent. Don't miss May Baileys, the hotel bar. By the time you leave you will be friends with everyone in there. I have stayed at several hotels in and around the French Quarter. i would put this one right up at the top. My only knock might be if you are on street side, it can be a little noisy but the quality of the bed makes you fall asleep almost immediately after laying down.

Our first stay at this hotel was in June 2009, and since we had a very positive experience, we decided to stay here again on our most recent trip. Other people have already mentioned the convenient location, charming courtyards, comfy beds, and included amenities (breakfast, internet, bottled water, etc). We liked and used all of these. Last time, we had a room fronting Dauphine Street and the noise was unbearable for me, so this time I wisely asked for a room back from the street and it was so much quieter. We stayed in the Hermann House across the street from the main hotel and it was wonderful. You have to use your key to unlock the gate and it often took us more than one swipe but eventually the key would work.

Everything was great except for the hotel bar. Our first night, we were tired but decided to use our free drink coupons. Although no one was smoking in the bar at the time, it still had a strong cigarette smell. My husband wasn't feeling great so he just ordered a soft drink and was ridiculed by the bartender for his choice. We left a standard tip on the table but now I wish I hadn't been so generous, as he later told me that the bar was the worst thing about the entire trip. But other than the bartender's comments, we enjoyed our stay at the Dauphine Orleans and we will strongly consider this hotel for future trips.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the street if you are a light sleeper. We love the Hermann House courtyard...

While attending a professional convention in New Orleans, we stayed at this hotel. It is, at best, a 3 star hotel; though the staff is friendly and accommodating. Decor is in need of a face-lift.

We were located in room 326, with a view out on Dauphine St. For three nights, we heard every single noise that went by the building--Bourbon St. clientele go by until 3 a.m., garbage trucks/delivery trucks start up at 6 a.m., motorcycles, cars honking constantly. I suppose this is "par for the course" when one chooses a hotel in the French Quarter. However, in my humble opinion, these very noisy rooms should not be used as guest accommodations, unless advertised as such, with a huge discount!! The older, main building rooms could definitely use a good update and thorough cleaning (we noticed a glass beer bottle behind nightstand, and half-emptied drinks in mini-fridge from previous patrons). There is also noticeable wear and tear in bathrooms.

The courtyard and pool area is quaint and pretty. This is a nice area to bring back some good take-out on a good-weather day.

We heard that some of the newer rooms were much nicer--be sure to find out the particulars with reservations, as we did not know this beforehand.

Two alcoholic (or non) drinks are included at adjacent May Baily's bar with stay. *Warning- this bar is a bit dark & dank, and smells badly of (animal?) urine. The bar building itself, though, has an interesting history and decor as a former brothel, "May Baily's Place," during the 1897-1917 red-light-district days of the FQ. *

Very good hotel for visiting New Orleans. Rooms are nothing special but very clean and bed was very comfortable. Location is PERFECT. We didn't rent a car and were able to explore bourbon street and surrounding areas very easily.

Friendly staff and you get free drink at the bar next door. pool area is small, but very pretty and relaxing. continental breakfast was nice, nothing too special but enough for a quick bite in the morning. Would definitely stay here again.

I've been reading the reviews for the past 2 months until I actually stayed at the hotel from Saturday-Tuesday and was quite impressed with the cleanliness, friendliness of staff, room and last but not least, the pool! My only knock on the place was the TV system because it was a disaster and had to call the engineering staff daily to have the system reset so I think mgmt should ditch this system and use the local cable provider, Cox or another satellite system. We were not in the room except late at night but it got irritating to call the Front Desk to attend to this issue. However, the front desk person, Stephanie was very open to calling the manager on duty, Shawn and get a credit on my account. It was very professional and courteous and appreciate the gesture. Therefore, I'll definitely be interested in returning on my next visit to the Big Easy!

The hotel has a great location above Bourbon Street and other than the daily garbage truck, external noise was kept to a minimum and it is so easy to walk in the French Quarter to the many restaurants, bars and clubs in the area. Josh was so helpful, informative and friendly about restaurants, activities and things to do in the City and represented the hotel in a professional manner. I'll definitely recommend this hotel to future travelers to the Crescent City and the breakfast was mediocre at best so if you're looking for a better breakfast, go to Mothers on Poydras Street for their brunch or Court of Two Sisters on Royal Street. Josh recommended Louisana bistro, a block from the hotel and their food was delicious and order the Louisana Couvillon, a seafood dish comprised of fish,shrimp,andouille sausage and rice. Good call!

Room Tip: If you're in the main hotel, pick a room away from Dauphine Street to avoid the daily garbage tr...
