Service from start to finish is fantastic .GREAT friendly and knowledgeable staff AND they serve Community Coffee - YUM! Beds are very comfy and we just loved the sounds of the old floors cracking! Great access from I-10, within walking distance to French Quarter, boutiques, Bourdon Street and Jackson Square. Breakfast and lunch was delicious. Pool was nice and quiet. Awesome place to stay!

Room Tip: Room 223 and 222 was pool side and had no street noise.

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.

We stayed here for five days. Walking distance to the French Quarter. We could go have a nice dinner. Walk a little further and listen to grow alive music, have a drink and walk back. Awesome way to experience NOLA.

It was great to have parking on site although we rarely used our rental car. One evening we had the pleasure of meeting the owner.

Place is very old and quirky in a good way. A bit of a pain to alway's have to leave our room key at the old fashioned front desk. But we'd stay again in a heartbeat.

Such a cute little hotel! My husband and I really enjoyed our stay here. The staff was wonderful & very helpful. The bed was comfy & the room was clean! The location was great, it's on the quieter end of the Quarter yet close enough to walk to all of our favorite places such as, Bourbon St, The French Market, Jackson Square & Cafe du Monde. I would definitely stay at Le Richelieu my next visit to New Orleans!

We had a great stay at Le Richelieu. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel is located on the edge of the French quarter only a few blocks from Jackson Square. The hotel is older, but has a lot of charm. We had the king suite which is essentially a one-bedroom apartment. It was very spacious and comfortable. Self-parking is on-site and is only $20/day. You can come and go as much as you want, although a car is not needed if staying in French Quarter.
A minor complaint for no coffee in the room, but there is a great coffee shop 100 feet from the hotel. Wi-Fi was poor in our room, but we had good 4G cell phone coverage, so not a big deal. Since it an older buidling, it doesn't have enough outlets for all the tech goodies, recommend bringing a power strip.
Overall, we had a great stay and would choose this hotel again. Great value for a hotel in the French Quarter.

Room Tip: Get a suite if available. Rooms in the back were very quiet.

Had a great weekend in New Orleans. Hotel at edge of French Quarter several blocks from Bourbon Street which was a good thing. Away from all the noise and late night partying. Walkable to all sites in quarter and to tram. Room was decent size but needed bathroom updates. Very clean and comfortable. Very well priced for French Qtr.

Room Tip: Our room was on street side which was quiet. Our friends were on pool side and heard people partying...
