Have stayed here many times over past 7 years and each one just as enjoyable. What a true small luxury hotel should be. From check in and concierge to morning papers and breakfast. Never misses a beat. Only slight nick are dated televisions. Rooms are superb though.

Stayed in Le Richemond again on this trip and overall it is a solid, service oriented, old worldly hotel in a positive way. While the decor and ambiance doesn't immediately feel like it, it is still functional and effective, and the service orientation makes it a highly valued experience in the end. Room sizes are in general good vs. some...

This is an excellent hotel with great sized rooms and great in room facilities. It is in a great location and very convenient. The only downside is the entrance lobby and the bar.
