I was lucky enough to get a balcony room. On a quiet street, but great spot for coffee or lunch! One of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in! Staff was awesome - from the bartenders to the cleaning staff. Lovely courtyard, cozy bar where the walls are lined with photos of celebrities from it's hey day. Excellent location... More

Now this was a find! I wish I had found it before, like for our wedding anniversary trip two years ago. This is a small hotel, but it has a lot to offer. We were there move a friend out of her apartment to assisted living. It was hard work and emotional as well. This hotel gave us a sanctuary... More

We arrived early and were given a room with no delay. We stayed in a lovely room overlooking the courtyard. The room was large, the bed comfy and the bathroom very blue! It was very hot so we just opened the windows. Although we heard some hallway noise early in the day, we heard nothing at night. Breakfast was yummy.

The Le Richelieu is a hotel with history. If you want trendy - don't bother. If you want hurry up - find another place. However, if you want to walk to the French Quarter, eat a good breakfast in a small hotel restaurant overlooking a lovely courtyard, and stay in high-ceiling old rooms try Le Richelieu. The lobby, hallways, and... More

My husband chose this hotel due to its location and proximity to Bourbon Street, the Riverwalk, French Market and downtown. The hotel was charming and the King Suite and gated parking were definitely a plus. The staff was extremely helpful and very knowledgeable about every single restaurant, attraction, and/or places to see and visit while we visited New Orleans. The... More

I stayed here for two nights before leaving on a cruise. This was a return trip for me, but my last visit was as a youngster traveling with my Mom. The staff has mostly been here for years and bent over backwards to be helpful for everything from helping me get my luggage to my room to providing menus for... More

We chose this hotel because the great reviews and location and were not disappointed. The staff was great, sweet, helpful. The location was fantastic, as we were interested in enjoying the music on Frenchman and staying a little away from the madness of Burboun. The hotel room was clean and roomy and quiet and we had a nice balcony. The... More

When you stay at a hotel that has employees at the same hotel for 40+ years! it says everything about how people are treated and how details are covered. One of my best friends recommended the Le Richelieu and I will be back.
