My mother and I had a wonderful experience in New Orleans and I must admit that staying in the Le enhanced and improved that experience. From the moment we stepped onto the porch of the hotel, the entire atmosphere changed. The hotel gave off a warm and positive atmosphere all while including the authenticity of the city. The people were... More

A friend and I stayed here for 7 nights. This was my 3rd stay. Love the location. Close to French Market and Frenchman Street. Close to awesome restaurants. The bar is very nice. It's small but has a great vibe.

My husband and I read the reviews on TA and decided on this choice based on them. Thanks for great advice. Charming, comfortable, clean and a very short walk to our restaurant, Irene's. Located in a quiet part of the Quarter, it suited us to a T.

On a recent visit to NOLA my wife talked me into staying at Le Richleau VS a more modern, think Hilton, hotel. She was joining me for a working weekend so we could spend some time together. Once I got over the lack of normal amenities I came to like Le Richleau very much. When I booked I booked a... More

We've spent the past 4 Easter weekends at this hotel. The staff is so friendly and helpful. The location is perfect!! We don't rent a car because this place is so close to all of the attractions in the French Quater!

We had a wonderful stay at the le richelieu hotel. The hotel is perfectly located on the downriver (east) side of the French quarter which is the quieter more charming side. A few blocks to bourbon street, the French market and Frenchmen's street. We walked all over the french quarter and felt safe walking home at night. There is a... More

Really good location, close enough to walk to everything and enjoy the sights and sounds of the French Quarter but far enough away that you dont hear any of the noise. Traditional hotel with a twist of modern style, the rooms where of decent size and had a lovely sharing balcony. The staff where so helpful and recommended which Mississippi... More

Le Richelieu is located at the far end of French Quarter, 3 minute walk from the Ursline stop on the trolley line. Yes, it is an older quaint hotel with so much charm, our standard double was on the larger size, 2 queen beds, updated bath and overlooked the interior courtyard. Very clean and thanks to the hardworking staff that... More

Staying in French Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
