Because some of the best music in NOLA happens on Frenchmen Street in the Faubourg Marigny, Le Richelieu is the perfect place to stay. Just one block from Esplanade Avenue, which separates the Faubourg Marginy from the French Quarter, this hotel is also in a quieter area yet still in the middle of it all. A lovely pool makes it ideal for families with children (go see the sights in the morning; hang out poolside in the sweltering hot afternoons). An on-premise restaurant and bar has a wide screen tv, which allowed our group to watch the World Cup without squeezing into one room. (All bars in New Orleans prohibit anyone under 21, and few restaurants could be found with tv's that would allow us to watch the games with our children in tow.) All rooms have refrigerators, which allows the budget-conscious to shave some dining costs by eating the other half of that muffaletta sandwich you ordered from Central Grocery or breakfast in your room (get your food supplies at the Verti Marte on Royal). And, speaking of breakfast, whatever you do, skip the option offered by the hotel and head to Cafe Envie instead (one block away). We will definitely stay again at Le Richelieu.
