Dauphine Orleans Hotel, New Orleans
There are a total of 111 rooms and suites on the property each with its own character and charm. The rooms are divided between the Main House, Hermann House Cottage Guest Rooms, and the Carriage House Guest Rooms.
The Main House has three floors of rooms. Some of these rooms have lovely balconies overlooking the courtyard or French Quarter. The Hermann House Cottage Guest Rooms and Suites include 14 spacious rooms and 2 one-bedroom suites. These rooms are across the street from the Main House. In 1991 the hotel did renovations and uncovered the original brick walls and cypress posts that are now part of each room.
The Carriage House Guest Rooms and Suites include a combination of 8 rooms and suites which overlook the lush courtyard of the Carriage House. The house was once part of a French Quarter townhouse. These rooms feature eighteen-century architecture and period antiques.
All of the rooms at the Dauphine Orleans feature wireless internet access, cable tv, coffee makers, a safe, and a telephone with voice mail.
The hotel is located in the heart of the French Quarter. You can't go wrong with this location. It is so easy to explore the French Quarter and be close to the hotel when you are ready to take a break or set down your bags from shopping on Royal Street.
Right next door to the hotel is May Baily's Place which offers cocktails in one of the better-known bordello's of the infamous Red Light District.

There is onsite valet parking available at the front entrance of the hotel. The valet can also assist in holding your bags if you have a late flight out of New Orleans. We took advantage of this service and it was so nice knowing our bags were locked up while we had a chance to enjoy a few more hours in New Orleans.

That is such a beautiful place! I am loving the brick wall in the bedroom! Something about brick... I just love! I find it cozy and rustic. Looks like a wonderful place to stay! The pool seems to be a nice place to relax. Ahhh I love relaxing by the pool. =) The photos you took are beautiful! Thank you for sharing!
What a quaint hotel. This is definitely a place I would stay at when I visit New Orleans. I absolutely love the brick walls in the bedroom. Glad I came across this review.
What a neat hotel. I love how it looks so ghostly and slightly haunted. It seems to have the quintessential New Orleans charm and character. I am a big traveler and I've been really wanting to go back to NOLA. I'll definitely look into this hotel when I start planning my trip. Thanks for sharing!
That looks like a beautiful place to visit and that pool is to die for! I'm hoping to plan a getaway soon and this looks like it could be the perfect place to visit! The french quarter has to be one of our favorite places we've been so far so I wouldn't mind visiting again! Thanks for sharing!
My parents have this thing, where they visit historical hotels whenever they travel. I bet tis one would be right up their alley! Love the look of this hotel room.
WHat a charming hotel! I love the look of the guest rooms and the color of the place. The swimming pool looks cool and refreshing as well. I love that it's a saltwater pool, hardly any are anymore!
Thank you for your wonderful review. I am liking the photographs you took of the Dauphine Orleans hotel, and will check them out when I get to visit New Orleans!
This looks beautiful. I wish I'd known about this when we visited last year. We didn't say in New Orleans (just drove through), but we might have had I known about this hotel. It's stunning.
What amazing character! I visited New Orleans once as a child but didn't truly get to experience the city in full. I have always wanted to go back and truly be a part of the history of the city. This hotel definitely looks like it would help me do just that. The unique rooms and the history of the building itself are amazing. Thanks so much for sharing I will definitely be making note of this for the future.
