My mother and I stayed here for a long weekend for our annual mother/daughter trip. Overall, solid QUIET hotel (we stayed in the back on the 2nd floor):
-As noted above, quiet. We didn't have a balcony but were spared the sounds of drunken, late-night revelers. Because of this location, it also seemed safe.
-Comfortable and spacious: Big room--almost felt like a suite with plenty of room to stretch out in the living room and kitchen areas. Also appreciated the full size fridge for leftovers and water.
-Clean: As I will note below, the hotel needs some updating but despite that, our room was very clean.
-Location: On the edge of the French Quarter---close enough to be a short walk away from the fun but far enough away to be quiet.
The Not So Good:
-Per above, the hotel needs some updating. It's not trendy or chic and travelers who are used to swanky, lush hotels will not find this at Le Richelieu
-The rooms are very cold: We called the front desk to turn down the AC and was told that its impossible to turn it down in each room because its controlled by the front desk for all the whole hotel.
Overall, I'd come back to Le Richelieu. Seems to capture the feel of NOLA well--like so many other things in the Big Easy, it shines despite the fact that it's a little bit older and could use some TLC.
