This was such a great find they have my NOLA business forever. Every single staff person was super helpful and efficient, the price was terrific, the room was HUGE, the food was cheap and delicious, the bar was quaint and the pool was perfect. Private, gated, affordable parking was a plus. The hotel is in the French Quarter but not... More

We were very satisfied with this hotel. The staff was VERY friendly and helpful throughout our visit. We researched the hotel prior to staying so we knew it was going to be small and somewhat "dated" in certain areas, but that it really part of its charm. In talking with some of the wait staff and bartenders, we learned that... More

A 5 min. walk to the center of the Quarter. A laundromat 2 blocks away. Trolley tracks 1 block away and a good restaurant around the corner. The staff is friendly, helpful, and efficient. Sure it is older but so is the Quarter. There is a small but clean pool area with a good bar and place to eat adjoining.... More

I was a walk-in customer and the staff was great!! This was my first time in New Orleans and they were very helpful on where to go and what to do. The pool was warm and relaxing after a long walk. The rooms were nice and clean, but the WIFI didn't work so well from our room. Will definitely stay... More

We had a great stay here on our last visit to NOLA. Perfectly located at the back of the French Quarter - still close to Bourbon street if you want to do that scene but right around the corner from Marigny and Frenchmen street. The staff is so helpful and friendly and the quaint restaurant and bar are a good... More

Great access from I-10, within walking distance to French Quarter, boutiques, Bourdon Street and Jackson Square. Breakfast and lunch was delicious. Pool was nice and quiet.... More

Because some of the best music in NOLA happens on Frenchmen Street in the Faubourg Marigny, Le Richelieu is the perfect place to stay. Just one block from Esplanade Avenue, which separates the Faubourg Marginy from the French Quarter, this hotel is also in a quieter area yet still in the middle of it all. A lovely pool makes it...

We stayed here for five days. Walking distance to the French Quarter. We could go have a nice dinner. Walk a little further and listen to grow alive music, have a drink and walk back. Awesome way to experience NOLA. It was great to have parking on site although we rarely used our rental car. One evening we had the... More

Such a cute little hotel! My husband and I really enjoyed our stay here. The staff was wonderful & very helpful. The bed was comfy & the room was clean! The location was great, it's on the quieter end of the Quarter yet close enough to walk to all of our favorite places such as, Bourbon St, The French Market,... More
