“Charming”
Reviewed 11 April 2012

Stayed in the King Suite. Roomy, clean, lots of storage and quiet. Dated? Yes but that is part of the charm! Staff is very friendly. The location is prime if you are more interested in the quiet side of NOLA. Frenchmen Street is just a couple blocks away as is the open air market and numerous places to eat. You cant go wrong with this place!

Hotel Le Richelieu in the French Quarter is a charming hotel in a historic building and is quite close to Bourbon St. , restaurants, shops, and places of historic interest such as Jackson Square. It is located on a quiet block and was very pleasant to stay there. The staff could not have been more helpful. Keys are still returned to the front desk when you leave the hotel. I enjoyed staying in my room with two double beds and a balcony. A few suggestions for improvement : bathroom could use some updating, better lighting would help. I would like a coffee maker in the room at least for hot water. A safe in the room would have been convenient.

This lovely small hotel combines atmosphere of bed and breakfast with services of a hotel. Located in the quiet section of the French Quarter, I was within easy walking distance of delicious bakeries, great restaurants, art galleries and shopping. The rooms were decently priced and well furnished. My bathroom could have used an update, but it wasn't a big deal. I stayed four nights in a one bedroom suite and thought it was well worth it. A great way to stay comfortably in the French Quarter and avoid big hotel crowds and prices.

This was our second trip to Le Richelieu. For this trip we booked a suite. There was no balcony and the air conditioning in the sitting room did not work. The bathrooms are really showing their age as is the hotel in general. The lobby and bar areas are very nice however. Each morning that we ordered room service, it was a guess as whether it would be as ordered. One out of three was correct. We very much like the location and the protected parking; but we won't be returning. There is also the POSSIBILITY that this was where our M/C number was swiped. The card was used the evening we checked in and we had not used it any other place that day.

The Richelieu is a small hotel a couple of blocks off Bourbon Street. It is quiet but still centrally located, and perfect for those who really enjoy walking everywhere. The rooms are not fancy, but are clean, have everything you need, including free internet. My one complaint was that the water temperature when one took a shower was kind of funky, would go from hot to cold and hard to regulate. Housekeeping did a great job, got in and out and was very pleasant. There is a little bar/cafe in the back and a pool with outdoor seating surrounding it, great for sipping the free coffee in the AM. The front desk staff are very helpful and full of suggestions about places to visit. I would definitely come back.

We would go back to this hotel. The location in the French Quarter was perfect...we walked to everything. There was a $20 fee per day to keep your car in their gated lot...which was definitely worth it....parking is really hard to find around there. While the hotel is historic, our room was very nice and had a lot of character. Our room was very quiet. (4th floor) We had a view of the courtyard and the New Orleans skyline.The staff was great, and there was a really nice little courtyard with a pool...very relaxing.
