The Hotel was one of the lucky ones that didn't suffer damage from the floods, it's much larger than it looks from the front,& the rooms are a good size, the air conditioning is brilliant & a must at 96 degrees with a really high humidity outdoors ,I wouldn't recommend staying anywhere without it.I would recommend a suite with a...

Our favorite hotel in New Orleans. Off the beaten track at the end of the French Quarter but easy walking to French Market or other attractions Rooms are comfortable, clean and quiet. Staff very friendly and ample self parking. We go to the bar when in town even if we're not staying. Local hangout for breakfast which is excellent

We enjoyed our stay at Le Richelieu as it was a great boutique hotel in a very convenient location. Our room was quite spacious and on the second level with a small balcony overlooking the pool . The room was decorated with older style furniture which was perfectly suited to the hotel itself as well as the historical area in... More

Le Richelieu is a terrific hotel, well trained and friendly staff. We ate breakfast daily at the hotel before setting off into the French Quarter. Bar is also available near the beautiful courtyard and pool

This is a gem of a place. Well located in the French Quarter - with parking! Fee wifi too. Rooms are a bit dated, but are in keeping with this quirky and atmospheric hotel. There is a small pool in a court yard as well. The lobby & bar are well presented. Breakfast is expensive for what it is, so... More

We recently stayed at this charming hotel in the French Quarter. It is close enough to everything to walk, but not so close you are in the midst of all the noise. The hotel is small but very well presented. The breakfast room is lovely, although there are many other great cafes nearby to choose from as well. We happily... More

Stayed here for night while traveling with a friend. Lovely hotel in French Quarter. Far enough from the noisy Bourbon street. The room was clean and big enough for two! We also had a nice view overlooking the pool. A big plus for us was their private parking as we were traveling by car. If I'm coming back to New... More

We decided to take our kids to New Orleans, and our base of operations was Le Richelieu. It was a perfect choice! I confess that I've always wanted to stay in a French Quarter-style hotel, two or three stories with wrought-iron balcony details and a historical vibe. With a family, I felt it was advisable to stay away from Bourbon... More
