As pronounced by the locals, "nawlens" Where the drinks are the strongest in America supposedly! Today we had one of the earliest mornings yet. We left Panama City beach at 7.30 to get to New Orleans. We drove through Alabama and stopped to visit a Walmart (freaking huge and so cheap). We got into New Orleans at 3 and did a walking tour where we went down Bourbon St and went to see the Mississippi Bridge. The streets are pretty to walk through. It's ...
... and learnt about how local people live. In the afternoon we sampled another local drink called a Hurricane, as it was raining. On the way back to our hotel it was raining hard but it was warm so we decided to literally go dancing in the rain through Jackson square......amazing moment! Strangley enouh we then saw a plaque in a shop window that summed it up 'Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance ...
... Deparc petitioned his friend Thomas Jefferson (yes the president) for some land. Jefferson secured a huge lot of land and gave it away for free for his loyalty, The fun thing about this plantation was that it was run by four generations of women as creole's didn't believe woman were inferior. The smartest one in the family got the plantation when it was passed on. Elisabeth was the next mistress of the plantation. She was the grandmother of Laura and it ...

There i would unwind from a tiring solo walk around town in the warmth of my hoodie and the living room tv showing the end of the awful looking cowboys and aliens and ...

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.
