FAUBOURG MARIGNY 4 BLOCKS TO FRENCH QTR
People often compare New Orleans to San Francisco, Savannah, Charleston, Paris, or Marseilles. It's not like that at all. The biggest difference? The streets are full of live music year round. You've never seen so much "street theater."
Our most cherished guests come for the wonderful food, music, architecture, history, artists, and writers of the Big Easy, and our French-Caribbean ambiance.
We live in the old French area, as my Creole ancestors did, coming from France and Spain in 1the 1700's. My mother and father grew up speaking French just a few houses away from us. Our district, Faubourg Marigny, is a quieter version of the adjacent French Quarter - you can actually sleep at night here. It's a safe, artist/gay residential area with about seventy bed and breakfasts. The city attracts one million visitors each month, so accommodations here book up quickly.
Within a couple minutes walk of our front door, you'll enjoy great local restaurants:
* Marigny Brasserie
* Spotted Cat
Not to mention an overabundance of art galleries and antique shops. There's a Cuban grocery store right across the street, and Jackson Square is just a twenty-minute stroll through the adjacent French Quarter.
Marigny, in the opinion of many, has become the more bohemian extension of the French Quarter, the neighborhood of choice for writers, painters, musicians, street entertainers and artists of all sorts.
Throughout the old, French District, you will see artists painting on the streets, musicians "jamming," and French doors of bars and restaurants open and inviting you to come inside. A mellow, village-like atmosphere prevails throughout the neighborhood. This is the real New Orleans.
Our nearby Country Club offers a large pool (clothing optional), full bar, and lunch most of the year at a daily rate.
Ray and Kim love hosting nice, relaxed people who enjoy new surroundings and experiences, and can "go with the flow." We steer clear of the formal, pretentious crowd - no "putting on airs" here. Come stay with us if you think we're your kind of place.
La Dauphine is a very laid back guest house for the budget-minded traveler. We're also just a twelve-minute streetcar ride away from the Convention Center.
For your safety and serenity, no unregistered guests are allowed in the rooms. No cooking is allowed and there is no kitchen access.
Our guest rooms include:
* Queen four poster beds
All of this in a charming yet unpretentious renovated Victorian, 100-year-old house. Continental breakfast is included. On street, unrestricted parking is readily available in front of the house. Hoshi -an intelligent, mellow, friendly Japanese Shiba Inu dog - also lives in the house.
English, French, German and Danish spoken.
