The pluses.....great location for quick access to great restaurants, the French market, and cafe du monde. Away from bourbon street craziness. Quiet and clean. Great air conditioning. Nice, secure, self park at reasonable rate of $20. Friendly front desk and security personnel. Decent sized room. Refrigerator. The negatives....lack of electrical outlets, dated decor, shower didn't drain properly, toilet sometimes didn't... More

Quaint hotel in south east corner of the French Quarter. Walking distance to everything we wanted to see and do. Salt water pool in the court yard and the bar were greatly appreciated after a busy day of sight seeing. Staff were friendly and always helpful. You felt like you were in New Orleans not just another hotel in another... More

We were looking for a place for a couple of nights but didn't want to completely bust the budget. Hotel is old, has an old smell to it but seemed clean and room was comfortable. Only thing about the room was the 1" or so drop off as one steps out of the bathroom...we almost fell a few times coming... More

This is a great city and I will return for another visit. When I do, I will choose to stay at Le Richelieu. The location is great. Near Frenchman's and Esplanade - away from the primary tourists. It's olde and dated like all the classic places in the Quarter. It's not shiny but, it's comfortable and full of life. Very... More

An elegant, older hotel which is excellent value for money. Secure parking for $20 a day. A perfect location in the French Quarter - easy to walk to so many places including both Frenchmen and Bourbon Street - and yet far enough away not to be bothered by the noise. All the staff were very helpful. Our room was large... More

I chose the Le Richelieu because the reviews were largely good and I was looking for something relatively inexpensive to stay at while attending a friend's wedding, especially since I was traveling abroad the following week. The Le Richelieu is in a great location. French Quarter, but quiet. When you walk in, however, you are greeted by an incredibly musty... More

Two years ago we stayed at LeRichelieu while in NOLA .. we loved it so we returned again this year. The location is just perfect, right on the she of the quarter, so close to the Marigny and Frenchman street. Had another great stay. We were pleasantly surprised to get a completely renovated room, brand new modern bathroom and super... More

The hotel has on-site secured parking which is hard to find in the French Quarter. There is a short walk to the centre of Bourbon Street, Royal Street, Canal Street, the French Market and Jackson Square but far enough away not to be disturbed at nighttime. There is no breakfast offered in the price but there is free coffee and... More

Stayed in this hotel for business, but would love to return to New Orleans for a vacation. This will be where I stay. The hotel is dated, but the employees were very friendly and the location couldn't be beat.

A 10 minute walk to Frenchmen Street music clubs, the French Market, the Riverfront Streetcar stop, and a variety of restaurants and cafes. We were upgraded to a better room due to the length of our stay (7 Nights). Our 4th floor room had a nice view of Barrack street and rooftops across the way. The window was sticky but... More
