“Great Location, amazing price!!”
Reviewed March 15, 2014

The hotel was so close to so many parts of this amazing city! Turn any direction to experience great food, music or attractions. It was close to Frenchmen St., the market, Bourbon St yet was quiet and clean, with very friendly staff. I cant imagine staying any where else when I come! We got the best price by going to their website and getting a Room Only booking.

As first time visitors to NOLA we were very lucky to stay at Le Richelieu..
The location was close by all the sites and public transportation when you wanted to leave the Quarter.
The staff was friendly and so helpful.The rooms were beautifully cleaned each day and had ample space.
The bar was warm and freindly and a great place to end the evening. You might even get to meet Carol, the owner or her dad,,Frank,a real Southern gentelman.
Would stay again in a minute!

Room Tip: A room with a balconey is great.

My husband and I stayed with another couple at Le Richelieu for my 25th birthday. We arrived at the hotel and were absolutely thrilled with the location and the Classic French quarter style of the building. Our room was a single on the fourth floor, we didn't have a balcony but we did have a pretty view of the street. It was cool outside the weekend we went, so we didn't note the lack of central air right away, but trying to sleep later I did notice it was a bit stuffy. We opened a window (the street below was very quiet) and the ceiling fan in the room worked great so it wasn't too bad. The bed was comfortable, and the little kitchenette in the room was cute. The Parking was awesome and our car was behind a secure fence. We were able to walk to all the cool spots around the French quarter including Bourbon and Frenchman. The location and parking make this a great place to say, but the room itself isn't anything special. Would stay again but would definitely request a balcony.

As I am writting this review, we are still staying at Le Richelieu. We came down to spend 10 days in this fabulous city. It is also our first time for Mardi Gras and the location, service etc were excellent for the price. We appreciated not being on the party streets, so this location is perfect, short walk to the parades, Bourbon street etc. Room is very clean, large walk in closet with a refrigerator, and friendly staff. That is all I need!

My wife and I stayed for 4 nights in January before embarking on a Caribbean cruise out of New Orleans.
The location is perfect for those people who like to be close to the action. Just a few minutes from Bourbon Street, Frenchman Street, & Decatur.

The French market is less than a 10 minute walk. The rooms are smaller but very well appointed and comfortable. Although we were on a side street, there was very little street noise.
Small quaint bar room with excellent staff. Staff at the front desk were friendly and very helpful

Would stay there again.

Room Tip: ask for a room with a balcony if you don't mind a little street noise. Chartres St is busy.

We visited New Orleans in the days preceding the NBA all star weekend. Because of this we initially had difficulty in obtaining accommodation in the French Quarter. Le Richelieu was not our first choice but in hindsight we were glad that we stayed there.
The hotel is well positioned in the French Quarter just a short walk from many of the attractions. The staff are friendly and helpful and the accommodations quite comfortable.
We had a room with two double beds on the 4th floor. The fittings are not new but the rooms are clean, tidy and comfortable with a real atmosphere. Our window opened to a view over rooftops and true streets were generally quiet at night (apart from the occasional procession!).
The Hotel is good value and I would recommend it for people looking for something outside of the run of the mill larger chains.

The front desk staff were helpful and informative but not intrusive. The hotel was clean, and the location was just perfect. Close to lower Decatur where the Quarter is relatively calm. I couldn't bear staying on bourbon street. I really like that the hotel is independent and family owned. That makes a big difference in a city that has been taken over by chains and in desperate need of small business ownership. The hotel is really lovely and feel very New Orleans. Be aware that if you have a room on the terrace, it is not a private terrace so you may have people walking up and down in front of your room. I would definitely stay here again!
