... did we know, 10pm is early in New Orleans if you can believe it! I guess the bars don't have to close at any specific time, and with Voodoo Fest going on down the street and not over for the night quite yet (a huge music festival that takes place yearly at City Park....this year it included Jack White, Metallica, Neil Young, NAS and Skrillix to name a few) this was early still. Also with Voodoo Fest taking place this same weekend every year, this had become the ...
... bar called The Cat's Meow. I didn't intend on going there, but really needed to escape the heat. Ordered a HUGE Scotch & Diet. The karaoke host sang some great songs. Can't say the same for the customers though!! Had a couple of drinks in one of the gay bars, but to be honest, the music in gay bars in the states is USUALLY awful. They tend to rely on boring video compilations. Give me a live DJ playing a bit of Funky House or Disco ...
... by with other people behind you. We did finally find the Hertz return, but it was confusing, as if you missed one of the last signs you’d end up back on the highway headed north.
We dropped the car and got the shuttle back to Terminal A whereDelta is located. There was only a short line for luggage drop and then no line for security. By the time we got through we had 2 hours to spare. I was able to get a 3 Finger Combo ...
... Men at work" who sang the song "I come from a land down under". It was a very interesting evening.
We enjoyed a famous New Orleans "muffuletta". They are massive, I could only eat a quarter
of it. We also listened to some jazz music by a street performer while we had coffee and beignets (a type of donut covered in icing sugar)at the outside DuMonde cafe on a lovely sunny afternoon. We really liked ...
... and the Pacific and is an excellent piece of documentary making that combines historical footage with special lighting effects and sense-surround - the latter feels like sitting in a massage chair when it was turned on. There’s also a recreation of a US bombing raid over Germany which includes the nose of a B29 bomber being lowered from the ceiling.
Dinner at Antoine’s was an experience. I arrived before my 6pm booking and spent 10 minutes wandering around ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Dauphine Orleans Hotel New Orleans
Stayed for Jazzfest 2001. Room was nice, but for the first two days, the a/c was broken. While a bit uncomfortable, it was tolerable. The staff seemed very understanding and brought us a fan. In consideration, we receive a fair refund (for the uncomfortable days) and an apology. I was very please with the professional way they handled this.
Daupine Orleans Hotel was WONDERFUL!!!!
The Dauphine Orleans was awesome. We stayed there on our honeymoon for a week before we left on a cruise. They were so nice! Champagne in our hotel room, etc. It is close to EVERYTHING, and we felt EXTREMELY safe there. The people were very polite, and the pool was tons of fun. We also had a patio courtyard that I would wake up early and drink a cup of coffee in, while my husband slept in. We had an unbelievable time there, and really would recommend it to anyone. We will definitely be going back someday!!! :)
Ususally stay at another favorite hotel but it was booked for this weekend holiday. Traveled with friends and we had three rooms. All three were decidedly different in quality and price. Suties are overpriced and overated unless you like to spend your time in the two person jacuzzi and the very large bathroom. The room itself was a back to the 1960's with white painted brick walls and TV in a cabinet. Of the three rooms, the best was the second floor in the patio area. All three were patio rooms across the street from the main hotel. Downsides: two of three had poor showers. Two of three had TV remotes that never worked, even when the front desk replaced them. Two of three had refrigerators that did not cool. One room had a bedspread that was very damp. "Expanded" Continental breakfasts were over-rated and standard fare - donuts, cereal, fruit, coffee and juice + boiled eggs. Afternoon hors-doeuvres were supposedly available 5-7 pm but after 5:30 all that was left in three evenings was the cheese tray. The better part: location is good. Beds are very comfortable, down pillows are nice, body pillows provided, upstairs patio room was very attractive, in-room safes, patio area is quiet and restful, though not large. Valet parking 18.00 per day is within the facility. Our collective vote: we would stay there again, though it would not be our first choice. Don't expect new or slick. There are other, nicer boutique hotels in the area that offer better amenities and still retain the Old New Orleans flavor.
Lock your doors!
My husband and I stayed at the Dauphine Orleans in 2001 and had a wonderful time, therefore booking our trip for the following October 2002. What a difference! The staff was hostile, and our second to last night there, our wallets were stolen out of our rooms! Call us naive tourists, but no one at the hotel showed ANY compassion. We had lost everything - it took 2 hours for the police to show up after we had called the lobby for help (they were there for another episode!) and the manager of the hotel whisked us off into the cafe because it was "bad for business" for us to be talking to the police in the lobby! They treated us like we had the plague, offered no assistance, and when my husband finally asked why they were treating us like this, the manager coldly said, "The police are handling it." My husband found a pile of pornographic magazines in the closet as well so maybe we were staying in the staff lounge. We also noticed the there was only one lock on the door, and no one at the front desk at night when we returned the night of the robbery. Naive tourists again! Terrible way to treat paying customers - we asked our travel agent if we could be reimbursed the last 2 nights and the hotel declined. If you're looking for that wonderful New Orleans hospitality, don't go here.
We truely enjoyed our stay at the Dauphine Orleans. We had a problem with our first room and the staff quickly moved us to a very nice room bigger than our first. Bernice was such a bright spot to each morning at the continental breakfast. The continental breakfast was exactly what we generally eat in the morning. Toast, yogurt, hard boiled eggs, english muffins and great coffee. All of the staff was friendly and very helpful. We loved the Evergreen rooms! We would stay at the Dauphine Orleans again!
Romantic Romantic Romantic Rendezvous
My husband and I just returned from our stay at Dauphine Orleans and it was great. The Romantic Rendezvous Package is wonderful. The location is great, not to far from Bourbon Street and the staff is great. We are already looking forward to our next stay at the Dauphine.
My boyfriend and I recently stayed a night at the Dauphine Orleans and it was great! They give you a complimentary cocktail and a list of restaurants that also offer you a free drink. That wasn't the best part but it was my boyfriends 21st birthday so it was a bonus. The bed was so comfortable, everything was down feather! There was a safe in the room! The bathroom was cute too! They even have bathrobes. There is parking for $15 a day which I felt was better than parking outside for $9 or more. The staff was really nice and the bar, May Baileys, used to be a brothel! It's supposedly haunted. I'd stay there again!
The location of the Hotel is one block from the action on Bourbon street - however it is in a quiet location. The service is outstanding. Everyone working at the Hotel provides excellent service - going above and beyond the call of duty to ensure their guests are enjoying themselves and are well taken care of. Wouldn't recommend any other Hotel.
Nice Boutique Hotel
I've stayed a couple of times at the Dauphine Orleans and have really enjoyed it. The location is hard to beat and the service very good. The continental breakfast goes beyond the normal 'doughnut' fare. If you're looking for a smaller, boutique style hotel to enhance your experience in New Orleans, this would be a top choice!
Nice, convenient hotel
My wife and I stayed at the Dauphine Orleans hotel in Feb 2002 a few days after Mardi Gras. We thought it was a nice, reasonably-priced hotel. The best thing about it was the location. It is one block north of Bourbon St so you're close to the action but in a quiet area. The room was ordinary but fine -- Ok with us since we spend so little time in the room other than sleeping. The breakfast was good -- fruits, breads and drinks. The staff was nice and their recommendations were good. Overall a good, nice place at a reasonable price.
