Great location! Quaint and clean. Good value. Staff at hotel very helpful. One by the name of Ariani (not sure of spelling) was so helpful with directions and best places to eat. Taxi service was also easy to access. Very positive experience.

We made our reservations based on location, but became suspicious when it was irrevocable.
We expected a 4 or 5 star property, but it hardly merits 2 stars.
The staff was correct but far from the southern hospitality one could expect.
The location is very nice and in the French quarter, but this is were the good part ends.
The musty odour and the outdated decor soon starts to irritate when you feel you have been had.
The wifi is not secure, so access to https sites is not possible.
We did not have breakfast there as we just wanted to leave as soon as we could, and we will never be back. Tourist trap to stay away from.

We drive from Iowa and since we have a car, need a hotel with a parking lot. The ambience of Le Rich is quiet, the staff are wonderful and the hotel itself has that N.O. flavor. I just wish they had coffee makers in the rooms. You can request one but I am not sure if you have to pay for it. We take our own now. The suites are large. We've been staying at Le Rich since 2003, with a few years in between at The Prince Conti to be closer to Bourbon. With us now being over 50 years of age, Le Rich is perfect for me and my husband because we now spend most of our time in the area around Le Rich and only hit Bourbon a couple times mostly to visit Johnny White's Hole in the Wall bar.

Room Tip: Pay the extra to get a suite.

My wife and stayed there for a 34th anniversary trip. This is a wonder hotel, with lots of charm, great location, and wonderful staff. First the staff. Everyone from the folks at the front desk to the maid service were very friendly and full of good advice. For example, when we told the bartender that we loved the food in NOLA and want to cook it when we got home the bartender went to the lobby to get us a magazine of NOLA cookbook and another staff person who was there gave me a list of "must have" spices.

Now for the location. The hotel is a five to ten minute walk to every thing in the French Quarter, and only a couple blocks from Frenchman Street - the best place to hear jazz.

Finally, a couple things about the hotel. Fantastic. Nice beds, great furnishing, free WiFi, a swimming pool, a cozy bar, and a wonderful restaurant. You have to spend time in the bar. The bartenders make you feel like family and are very interesting people. Also, don't forget the restaurant - we only ate there once for breakfast, but what a great breakfast.

My husband and I found the Richelieu when we were hoping to stay on the quiet side of the Quarter. We were not disappointed and have come back many times. A little old and quirky, but the staff are wonderful, the breakfast is good enough the locals come to enjoy it, and the balconies off of the rooms are fabulous!

Room Tip: Ask for a third floor balcony room. But be aware there can be some street noise; like carriages cli...

Great place to stay in the French Quarter! Rooms are clean the front end staff is very helpful. One pitfall don't order the breakfast WAY over priced and not that great; good at best. But overall worth it.

We had a very nice time . We really enjoyed the room and the staff was very friendly. We liked having the option of being able to walk everywhere. Hope to go back one day. Loved having a balcony. Would love to checkout the suite. The price was fantastic. Thank you!!
