Located in buildings that date back to the early 19th century, the Dauphine Orleans Hotel still retains its period architecture and a rich history that’s uniquely New Orleans.

This part of the French Quarter is set a block away from Bourbon Street, with its nightlife and creole restaurants, but feels far removed from its hustle and bustle. "Guests tend to like the atmosphere a lot", says Frommer's, and Fodor's praises it for being a "secluded respite".

The buildings cluster around three quiet courtyards and a saltwater pool -- said to be the oldest in New Orleans. The breakfast room was actually where John James Audubon, the 19th-century naturalist and artist, painted his Birds of America series (and discovered several new species in the process), while he was staying in the self-catering Audubon Cottages.

The Main House guestrooms come with free Wi-Fi, daily bottled water and flat-screen TVs. Upgrade to a Premium Room for more space and a balcony overlooking Dauphine Street (Premium King rooms may not have a balcony but are more spacious).

This part of the city was a thriving red-light district in the late 1800s, and the hotel’s bar was once a popular bordello. Today, sip on a welcome drink while admiring historic portraits of the local madams, or browse the lending library. Refreshments and snacks are also served every day from 3-5pm.

From the press:
  • “Within walking distance of the action but removed enough to make it a secluded respite, this French Quarter hotel has a lot of charm” -- Fodor’s
  • “It's just a block from the action on Bourbon Street, but you wouldn't know it if you were sitting in any of its three secluded courtyards. Guests tend to like the atmosphere a lot” -- Frommer’s
