Echoing the sentiments of other reviewers, don't come to the Le Richelieu expecting goldplated fixtures, chandeliers, and plush new carpeting. But...if you want a place to stay that oozes funkiness with a 60's era vibe, this may be the place for you. Staff members are outstanding as mentioned in other reviews. They will gladly call for cabs, offer advice relative to streetcars, activities, food, and music. But honestly, it may be the location of Le Richelieu that is the real star here...the hotel is in a quiet section of the Quarter so you can leave the sights and sounds of the first five blocks of Bourbon Street to the fratboys and cover bands. Just six blocks from Jackson Square in one direction, Le Richelieu is just steps away from Frenchmen Street in the other direction - where you can hear real musicians play all sorts of outstanding original and old-school music at Three Muses, dba, The Spotted Cat, and Blue Nile. At this price and in this location, we can do without digitally-controlled thermostats, lightning-fast wifi, and cookie-cutter concierges who don't know Bloomingdales from Boudin Balls. We love Le Richelieu!
