The hotel is located in a quiet part of the French Quarter, about a ten minute walk from the bustling center. It has an old fashioned charm but also provides all the facilities you need. The staff is very friendly and altogether we had a great time. PS. Bring a swimsuit to cool off from the New Orleans heat in... More

We haven't stayed here recently, but did a few times in the past. Was very nice then, which was about 6 years ago. Would stay again, nice location. And if I'm correct, the parking is free. We usually go to FQF, and this location is right by the mint, which has numerous acts now. Also, when we stayed breakfast was... More

My husband and I were impressed with how appropriately dated this hotel was. With its creaky floors from wood that would survive a hurricane, it just added to the charm. The people were all pleasant, the location was perfect as it was close to Bourbon Street (but not too close). We loved the aged hotel and would stay there again.

We weren't familiar with this hotel when we started searching for a getaway weekend spot, but we sure got lucky finding it! This hotel is beautiful, comfortable, well-situated and is blessed with one of the friendly staffs we have ever encountered anywhere.

Bit of an old timey place. Needs a bit of an upgrade. Poor wi-fi (mine didn't work at all), bit of an unpleasant smell throughout the place, and over priced for what you get. I checked out after 1 night. Shame as it looks so nice from outside

This hotel was a bit old, the keys were old, the doors rattled when someone walked by, but it was quaint and quiet. The location is excellent. It's off the main section of the French Quarter - thank goodness. I couldn't imagine trying to sleep being any closer to bourbon street. But it is close to everything. I was a... More

Absolutely charming hotel in the French Quarter. Centrally located but on a quiet street. Few minute walk to Bourbon Street and the French a Market. Will stay here again when we come back to New Orleans. Loved it!

Located in the heart of the French Quarter with reasonably priced parking, this is a gem of a hotel should you decide to visit New Orleans. Staff were very pleasant; room was a bit small, but very clean; and the check in/out process was very efficient. On my next stay in NOLA, this hotel will be high on my list.

We were looking for the warm southern hospitality and Old French Quarter feel and Le Richelieu delivered! The staff was very welcoming and the hotel grounds and rooms were authentic New Orleans. The location is in walking distance to everything the French Quarter has to offer and the bar and restaurant in the hotel were great! You won't find a... More
