Dauphine Orleans Hotel
Records of the Dauphine Orleans' site date from 1775, and several of the original structures have survived the test of time. One of our most notable jewels is what is now known as our Audubon Cottage where, from 1821-22, John James Audubon painted his famous "Birds of America" series. The restored cottage now serves as our hotel's main meeting room.
The Dauphine Orleans Hotel is a non-smoking hotel located in the heart of the French Quarter, just one block from the bustle of Bourbon Street and two blocks from the antique stores and art galleries of Royal Street. Our French Quarter boutique hotel features a saltwater pool and 111 guest rooms and suites. Fourteen spacious Hermann House Cottage Guest Rooms and Suites, located across the street from the hotel's main building, were originally built in 1834 to serve as the town home of a prosperous merchant, Samuel Hermann. Each room features a Jacuzzi-style tub.
Our main building features three floors of exquisitely decorated rooms, some with balconies overlooking the courtyard or French Quarter. The Carriage House Guest Rooms and Suites overlook or surround the lush courtyard of the Carriage House, once part of the French Quarter town home. Eighteenth Century architecture and period antiques combine to give these rooms an Old New Orleans feeling without sacrificing modern amenities and services.
Upon check-in guests receive a complimentary welcome cocktail at the historic May Baily's Place, once one of the better known bordellos in the wildly infamous red-light district known as Storyville. Daily continental breakfast, afternoon tea, newspaper delivery and wireless Internet access are compliments of the house. We provide secure valet parking in one of the few private on-site parking garages in the French Quarter.
Whether it's to visit one of New Orleans many historic attractions, plan an intimate wedding or an executive retreat, you are invited to step back in time into the romance of Old New Orleans and experience the history, luxury and service of the Dauphine Orleans Hotel.
