We really enjoyed our stay at a La Dauphine our host Ray went out of his way to make our stay pleasant. The rooms were homey and I felt as if I was staying with a friend. Our hosts gave us valuable information on dining and attractions. He even drove us down to get our car that impounded for a parking violation. I surely would stay at La Dauphine again.

The location of this house to Frenchman Street could not be more perfect. We were able walk to most everything and when we could not walk the streetcars were very accessible. The room was quiet, clean and quite comfortable. We will stay here again on another visit.
Thanks for the good words. Hope to see you all back here again soon :-)

I highly recommend this residence for its ambience, location, and price. The hosts are friendly, charming, and accommodating. I felt as if I had made two new friends and hope to stay there when I visit in the future. Mary Kiley Cedarburg, WI
Great. Hope you enjoyed the book I gave you-- The Banquet Years: The Origins of the Avant-Garde in France - 1885 to World War I, by Roger Shattuck. I highly recommend the book. Hope to see you again, Mary. Best of luck to you!!

18 minutes walk to Jackson Square, 4 blocks from Mississippi River, New Riverfront Park to open soon, Smack in Marigny neighborhood, Steps from French Quarter, Walk to Bywater neighborhood, City, Downtown
New Orleans, LA (MSY) 17 miles
Take I-10 East into New Orleans. Follow I-10 into city staying in right lane and take what looks like an exit with Slidell posted above (it's still I-10). Take the Esplanade Avenue Exit-236A (the next one after the Vieux Carre Exit) and turn right. Go one and a half blocks to Esplanade Avenue and turn right at the traffic light. Proceed less than a mile to our street, Dauphine, and turn left. Go 5-6 blocks to 2316 Dauphine to La Dauphine (on the right). (Unbelievably, half the taxi drivers at the airport do not know the streets of the French Quarter-- even with a million tourists a month heading there. So be prepared to direct them-- Dauphine Street is one of the streets of the French Quarter, and runs the same way as Bourbon Street-- that is, parallel.) It only takes 24 minutes from the Airport IF there is no traffic.
