The location is great for events downtown. I like to walk, and the central location is nice. Staff was really friendly. We were there for a show at the Saenger which was just a couple blocks away. I would stay there again I didn't like the parking setup. I don't know where the garage was, and you have to stop right on the very busy Canal street and valet. It was pretty much a zoo in front of the hotel the whole time~ But again, the staff was helpful and friendly
Having no working remote control for the TV (who doesn't love bonding time), and no free lotion (ashy legs for the win!). There was a swingers convention going on at this hotel, which we were not made aware of, and were continuously cruised by older couples while simply trying to smoke cigarettes. We're not bored with our sex life just yet.
Good price, really liked the option to earn rewards for not having room cleaned by staff for duration of stay, location, and bag storage No kitchen appliances in room, expensive breakfast
We were unable to reach our hotel. No one told us when we made our reservations that Mardi Gras parades (at least two) would be passing by our hotel after 4:00 p.m. (which is check in) making it impossible to get to our hotel. We waited in traffic for over 3 hours trying to reach our hotel, then the New Orleans police started diverting all the traffic and set up barriers making it impossible to be anywhere near Canal Street. The front desk at the Marriott told us they couldn't guarantee we could reach the hotel by midnight. We had to drive to Baton Rouge to get a hotel and missed out being with family the next day for our grandchild's 1st birthday.
Location - close to great places to eat, shopping, and Bourbon street. The doormen were very kind and helpful. Lots of drunk people everywhere... but that Bourbon street for ya! Also, housekeeping didn't come to our room one day. At least it wasn't clean when we got back at 5 pm, and at that point I wanted a nap.
The hotel was clean modern and near Canal Street but not in the center of the French quarter so a lot of walking I was there for rest, the bed was hard the covers were not long enough to cover your body the thermometer was not functioning properly the alarm clock went off every hour even though it was in the off mode you could not unplug it the TV reception was like rabbit ears ... beginning around 3am the people next door started screaming and fighting I called downstairs it took forever for them to come up and quite these people down it was so loud it sounded like they were murdering someone and then once the security left they started slamming doors so I got very little sleep the security people should have kicked them out of the hotel but they didn't I complained the next morning about all of these things to the supervisor Dominique and her response to all of these issues was well we can't control the noise in the rooms
Service and location.
Right by Bourbon St room was clean and nicely appointed great central courtyard with pool Location makes it noisy rooms on one side were noisy to a non-stop generator terrible pillows no room service uninformed staff (front desk not aware there was no room service, housekeeping not clear whether feather pillows existed... isn't this a basic requirement in most hotels? plastic mattress cover - I guess too many people enjoy the party atmosphere too much & they have mattress issues!
View from room Tired liooking
I have always stayed here but this time the services was so bad !! They couldn't find my reservation and the stuff was rude
Pool was awesome, Carousel Bar was amazing, staff was top notch. Criollo was a very tasty restaurant. Location! Limited channels on TV cable, wifi was a little slow, other than that, very nice
The location is excellent I thought the hotel looked a bit run down,not a 5 star hotel.. I did not like the fact that there was no complimentary coffee or news papers The coffee was available in the gift shop for $3.00+ / cup. Not acceptable for a supposed top flight hotel, Forget trying to get a seat at the famous Carousel bar, but it was the first weekend of Jazz Fest.
Location The room was too small especially the rest room. The hotel is nice but needs an update. The mattress was old and lumpy. I would not recommend this hotel to a friend.
Our room 1236 was a great room for us! The facilities were great and the staff was lovely. We enjoyed the food in the restaurant and the Wednesday jazz players. We would definitely return the next time we are in town!
We are frequent visitors of the Ritz Carltons and this was the worst facility I've ever been to and service was poor. I was paying $600 a night and felt like I was staying at a Sheraton or worst.
The staff was incredibly lovely! They were super helpful with events going on in the Quarter, and the hotel itself is a perfect location! We had amazingly comfy king bed with a gorgeous shared balcony off the back. I loved that among the bathroom amenities that they included a makeup remover toilet! That was truly a life saver after a long night of great music and libations in the neighborhood. We will definitely stay here again when we're back in NoLa! The bathroom was a touch out dated for those that mind, but we certainly didn't! :)
Bar staff great Wifi was not available which should not happen Rooms do not have Ethernet so working was not possible
It was a rough start from check-in: - The designated room on our paperwork (King) was not available at check-in, leaving us a couple in two beds - Upon getting to the room, there was toilet paper and urine in the toilet. - There was makeup all over the collar of the bathrobe (being billed as "take it home for $120") - They were able to move us the next night to a king room, which we found out during the middle of the night did not have a working heater (35 degrees outside at this point). So we moved to our third room of the trip that second night. I'll echo the same concerns with customer service that I see in other reviews here. It's a pity because the property itself is well situated and in good company with the likes of the Ritz and Roosevelt. But it failed to meet any standards for cleanliness and overall guest experience.
Hospitality, clean rooms, great view, pool, but location was everything especially for the French quarter No complaints here
front desk staff balcony complimentary morning coffee pool property outdated stains on sheets
Rooms were really spacious and clean. Great location on the outskirts of the French quarter.. staff were friendly. Toilet didn't work, but husbands a plumber so wasn't an issue for us. We did report it on checkout.
We found a roach in our room the first day. When we told the woman at the front desk, she was nice and apologetic, but said it happens when there's rain. I understand, having dealt with roach in my apartment, but asked her to have the room sprayed, and wondered why that wasn't the default answer. The water stank. It smelled like putrid pond water, like it came from the river or Lake Ponchartrain. It was hard water too, so rinsing in the sink or shower is a long chore that never seems possible to finish. I believe this is what made the tub slimy and slippery. It didn't appear dirty, but it was impossible to stand in the shower without a wash cloth underfoot. The hotel is located on the 2nd-6th floors in the Ritz Carlton. The Ritz locks their doors in the evening, but the key readers don't allow Courtyard guests in, so you need to go around the block to get inside. Either way, it's a maze of elevators, since you always need to take at least 2 elevators to get to your room. The Ritz spa smells like an over-chlorinated YMCA pool, and permeates the entire lower floor. Coupled with the arctic air conditioning, coming in from the outside is a violent jolt with a mild burning sensation in the nose. And it's $25/person/day for the privilege of immersing yourself in the water.
Beautiful hotel and very helpful staff
Romantic style of hotel. Poolside dirty. Big construction in front of hotel which is and was not published .....
We only stayed one night but the staff were excellent, very welcoming and friendly. They let us check in early and gave us drink tickets for the hotel bar May Bailey's, even giving us an extra ticket since there were 3 of us. The bartender at May Bailey's was great too, very amiable, and told us the history of the bar and humored my friend when he asked about ghosts. When we came back late at night and were taking pictures, one of the staff recommended a good view from the second floor balcony if we liked pictures. The beds were heaven. I didn't even want to leave the room, those beds were soooo comfortable! Breakfast in the morning was pretty good with lots of options, better than any continental I've ever had. We had a wonderful time, only wish we had been able to stay longer! In future trips to NOLA, I will definitely be staying at the Dauphine Orleans again. Nothing major, just a hair in the sink and one in the tub. Otherwise very cleanly.
Doorman mervin, attentive hardworking and caring. Excellent employee. Not clean, walk across the floor your feet are filithy. Tub not clesn.
Great location. Great water pressure. Gym was more than adequate for me, although was small, so if more than a few people wanted to work out at the same time, it could get a little crowded. Very friendly/helpful staff.
Wonderful boutique hotel just far enough away from Bourbon street to avoid the noise and crowd but close enough to walk to anything in the French Quarter.
Near the famous Bourbon St. Dirty room and absence of small fridges in the room
