My daughter and I spent 2 nights here as we road tripped across the south. Great location, close to the action but still quiet, nice secure parking, and an exceptional staff very friendly. If you love old historic hotels this place is for you. Highly recommended for your stay in New Orleans.

This hotel is near the French Market Place in the French Quarter of New Orleans. All I can say is wow. Your key is an old brass key with a brass circular fob, no swipe card-the old way. The staff is great, there at your beck & call. Parking is the most reasonable in the French Quarter. Our room is... More

Stayed at this property to celebrate my mothers birthday. I live in NOLA and stopped by last month to see if I could have some cupcakes and a gift placed in her room on the day of arrival. Lourdes the manager was pleasant and said no problem. On the day of arrival I stopped by again to have the request... More

In the French Quarter but away from the noise, Le Richelieu is a beautiful hotel. The room was very comfortable with a closet so big it was more like a dressing room. Just 4-5 blocks from Jackson Square and an easy 20 minute walk to Canal Street, it's located perfectly. Bourbon street? Two blocks over. Decatur? One block. My only... More

We had never stayed at Le Richelieu although we walked by it many times over the years we lived in the French Quarter and back visiting. We finally decided to try it on our last visit. It is now the only place we will stay in NOLA. The staff is fantastic, love the location and rooms nice. Also love the... More

we stayed here for 2 nights. It is in a great location as it it away from the noise and partying on Bourbon st. It is just a short walk to the clubs and bars that the locals go to and they are not crowded. There a some great places to eat right there also. The flea market is in... More

The bathrooms were spotless (despite being outdated, which I actually loved), the pool was relaxing and beautiful (saltwater is a big bonus!), and the hotel itself was quiet and perfectly located. Easy check-in and check-out. No problems overall. We loved it!

We stayed here for five nights as a getaway from our hectic New York life. We weren't disappointed. The room are a decent size with opening windows, all with views of the lovely French Quarter. Our favorite aspect of the hotel was the pool. There were table and chairs available to guests, which was a great place to rest between... More

Le Richelieu has been our Haven in the French Quarter for the last six years. I hear there are lots of nice places to stay in the neighborhood, but can't imagine why we'd want to try them. The hotel is on a quiet corner and an easy walk to all favorite restaurants and attractions. Rooms are comfortable and each is... More

We chose this hotel for the location and parking. We were pleased with both. The hotel is a little dated, but the price makes it a great value. The service was excellent - from the front desk, cleaning staff and cooks. I can't have caffeine so I was especially pleased they had FREE brewed decaf coffee. Mid day I asked... More
