La Dauphine is described on its website as a “laid back guest house for the budget-minded traveler,” and that is indeed true. We have been staying at La Dauphine during the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival every year since 2007 and each year when we arrive we feel like we’ve come back home. Ray (and Kim) are welcoming and hospitable and although it breaks one of the “rules” for guests, there is always a hot pot of coffee for us no matter how late in the day we awaken. [During jazz fest as the week goes on this becomes later and later.] The rooms are comfortable and each one has a private bathroom so that I almost feel like I’m in my bedroom at home. I know from personal experience that staying at La Dauphine is more comfortable than staying in a hotel or condo and the hospitality can’t be beat. This guest house is in the Marigny neighborhood, within walking distances of Frenchman Street and the Bywater, areas famous for drinking, eating and live music entertainment. It is also easy to take a bus into and across the French Quarter and connect with other buses or streetcars that will take you all over the city. Because of this we never rent a car when we come to New Orleans and we rarely need to use cabs to get around. We have everything we need from our comfortable home away from home, La Dauphine.
