I can now say I've been catfished—by a hotel. For four years, I've been itching to stay at the Dauphine Orleans and, for a two-night stay bordering on $600 (not including parking), disappointment doesn't come close to describing my emotions. Upon entering the room, my friend looked at me in shock that not only was I paying the price I was but that this indeed, was the room we were staying in. Not only did parts of the room look like they were on their last leg, the cockroach we discovered in the bathtub was also as its ended. The toilet in our room was reminiscent of one you'd find in a concert venue and not a hotel room. As for quietness, I hope you enjoy the sounds of the mini-fridge situated on the floor switching on every so often, lulling you to sleep. The one window in the room was inaccessible as it was drilled shut by balcony doors which adds an entombment-like feel to a room that only has three lamps (if you could call them that) in the main area. I could drone on about the depressing condition of the room, contrarily though I have nothing but nice things to say about the staff at the Dauphine Orleans. From the front desk attendants to the kind woman who brought us extra towels, everyone who works at the hotel is kind and ready to help you should you need it. Sadly, the staff's kindness is unlikely to bring me back to this hotel which, in short, is in need of some major love, remodeling and updating.
