My husband and I spent the tail end of our honeymoon staying in New Orleans at La Dauphine. Right away Ray and Kim went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. They allowed us to check in early and never made us feel like we were an inconvenience. Upon arrival, there was an insider's guide to the French...

Ray and Kim are friendly hosts who know and love their city. Their library of restaurant and tourist guides is comprehensive and up to date. A terrific collection of other books, videos and DVDs is available, especially covering international travel topics. Just 2 1/2 blocks from Frenchman, La Dauphine also provides easy access to the Quarter, I-10 and the Central...

We stayed at La Dauphine in New Orleans for five days during Jazz and Heritage Fest and it was wonderfull. This bed and breakfast, located just outside of the French Quarter, has comfortable rooms, and it has a very laid-back feel to it; just like the city and its people. Ray and Kim, who run the place, are very welcoming...

Michael and I love coming to N.O. for the French Quarter Fest. We have always stayed in the Marigny district because it is fun, affordable with easy access to the Riverfront streetcar and FQ. This was our first stay at La Dauphine, we love it ! The historic shotgun style house has modern conveniences including highspeed internet access, cable TV/DVD/VCR,...

My husband and I have been to New Orleans many times over the years and we love it. I have always dreamt of having a place there and living with the locals. After staying at stuffy hotels on Canal St. and in the French Quarter, 'La Dauphine' was just the change that we were looking for. The style and decor...

This bed and breakfast is wonderful for people who like a relaxed atmosphere with a comfortable room and high ceilings. The owners are Ray and Kim; Ray knows practically everything and everyone in New Orleans and was quite familiar with restaurants and other spots throughout the city. His recommendations were always accurate. Ray and Kim went out of their way...

What makes this B&B exceptional isn't that it's extremely luxurious, because it's not. It's a atmospheric, traditional New Orleans house with beautifully decorated (though a little bit crowded) rooms, a back garden ideal for al fresco breakfasting in a very nice and quiet neighborhood. What makes it truly lovely though is the hosts. Ray and Kim went above and beyond...

We stayed here in December, and again, it is just so comfortable. I noticed that in my last review I stated that the rooms had very "NO decor "-- and then in rereading it, realized that not everyone will understand that "NO" means New Orleans, and not "none". The rooms are large, comfortable and each one has a different New...

Ray and Kim run a very comfortable and homey B&B. We felt as though we were visting close relatives, with the freedom of accessing the guest' fridge in the middle of the night. The rooms are large and comfy with very NO decor. W/D available. It is such a relief, after staying in hotels, to have no fear of leaving...

We initially chose La Dauphine because of its artsy bent and its location, just a few blocks east of the famous Jazz Club, Snug Harbor. When I left a phone message requesting a reservation, Ray (one of the owners) promptly called me back, and we right away became engaged in a conversation on various topics. Upon arrival, my son and...

Staying in Faubourg Marigny & Bywater

Neighbourhood Profile
Faubourg Marigny & Bywater
Nestled between the French Quarter and the Ninth Ward, the Faubourg Marigny & Bywater environs are largely residential. Of course, folks around here love to go out and have a good time as much as they do anywhere in NOLA. And if out-of-towners want to join in the festivities, well then so much the better! Home to some of the most revered live music venues in New Orleans, an eclectic gaggle of gourmand dining destinations, and a come-as-you-are vibe that’s as infectious as it is alluring, this is real deal New Orleans oozing with southern hospitality and the promise of a most epic night out. For endless opportunities to boogie, to admire row upon row of lovingly restored homes, and to escape the fray of the more touristic parts of town (but still live it up in grand style) head to Faubourg Marigny & Bywater.
