“Cute quiet clean New Orleans hotel!”
Reviewed 3 June 2014 via mobile

The building is very old, so yes it has a "smell"- but not a bad one. I made sure to request a coffee pot and balcony when making the reservation- and we got them. I loved that each room is unique, we had real coffee cups to use, etc. the housekeepers and staff were all extremely friendly. Location is great, walking distance all over french quarter. Coffee shop and cafe 1/2 block away.

We were booked at Richelieu for Sun. & Mon. 5/25 &5/26/14. (our first visit to this hotel, 8th visit to NO) We arrived a day early & were hoping for a cancellation. No such luck. However, Becky, at the front desk knew our chances for a room elsewhere were just as bad. She then took about 15 min. attempting to reach her manager re: a room that was available but had no hot H2O that night. We took the room at a significantly discounted rate & because we did, she also discounted our next two nights. Our stay was fabulous, the hotel is clean, friendly, convenient, & great value. We will definitely stay again our next time in NO! Jim & Mary T.

My girlfriends and I stayed here in March (2014) and couldn't have asked for a better location. You are right in the center of the French Quarter and within walking distance of Bourbon Street and Jackson Square. The hotel itself was very clean and unique, but it a bit dated (my friends didn't seem to mind though). There was no noise and the staff was very friendly.

A very enjoyable stay. The hotel was very clean and nicely appointed. Wonderful location. The bed was very comfortable. Staff was good, especially Molly, who was very helpful and pleasant upon our arrival rather late in the evening. Would definitely stay here again!

Le Richelieu delivered exactly the feel and atmosphere I was looking to experience in New Orleans. It is a nice, clean, well-maintained hotel with hints of quality, older and unique furnishings that show its history in the city. You get the wonderful experience of a good night sleep in a safe and comfortable place, without the standard Marriott / Hilton name brand and more of that quaint, southern feel you are looking for. It is perfectly situated 2 blocks south from Bourbon, 1 block over from Frenchmen, and 3 blocks north of Decatur Street and the French Market. Ask for a room with a Balcony, and just watch the amazing people and horse drawn carriages go by, while having a beautiful view of the architecture and unique but consistent houses. We didn't eat at the Hotel, but it looked great and the pool was well kept and beautiful.

New Orleans is a must in and of itself, but staying here just makes the trip that much more worth it.

The hotel is situated a 7 minute walk from the end of Bourbon St, and very safe walking in the area at 2am. No noise what-so-ever from the entertainment strip. Rooms are good, bed is very good and all is clean. No noise from the A/C and could not hear the elevator at night.The staff where always on hand with good and courteous assistance, and the breakfast good at $16. Tried to find a better place for breakfast but there was none.

Room Tip: I was booked into a room on the south side. No a sound from either people of the lift. The A/c was n...

This is a very cute hotel that definitely fits in with the style of the French Quarter. We were a little disappointed by the size of the room when we first checked in, especially the shower and tub (my husband is 6'3") but it was clean and quiet so that was really all we cared about. The cafe is good for breakfast bu it closes at 2 so be prepared to go out to eat dinner. The wireless internet was a bit of a joke : the signal didn't reach as far as the bed so we had to sit on the floor outside the bathroom. The morning person on the front desk (she has a wrist brace) was great; super helpful and knowledgeable but the one in the evenings (dyed blonde hair) was utterly useless. Overall, our stay was good. The hotel is in a good location to get where you want to go but not so close to Bourbon that you hear everything going on there at night.
