“Great location and ambiance”
Reviewed 22 August 2014 via mobile

Our favorite hotel in New Orleans. Off the beaten track at the end of the French Quarter but easy walking to French Market or other attractions
Rooms are comfortable, clean and quiet. Staff very friendly and ample self parking. We go to the bar when in town even if we're not staying. Local hangout for breakfast which is excellent

Stayed July 2014

We enjoyed our stay at Le Richelieu as it was a great boutique hotel in a very convenient location. Our room was quite spacious and on the second level with a small balcony overlooking the pool . The room was decorated with older style furniture which was perfectly suited to the hotel itself as well as the historical area in which it is located. Noise was never a problem. The staff were very friendly and helped organise our tours. There is parking available as well as a small café restaurant in the hotel.

Room Tip: Room with balcony overlooking the pool was great.

stayed 3 nights here and we loved it! perfect location, very quiet, staff were friendly and helpful, had a kingsize with a the balcony and loved having adult beverages on the balcony in the evenings. Huge plus for us was the cleanliness of the room...bathroom was outdated and the room needed painting but it was clean...bed was extremely comfortable!! I usually don't set an alarm just wake up but not here, overslept twice :) also liked the secure parking at $20 a night and this is a budget friendly hotel

Room Tip: ask for a room with a balcony

Le Richelieu is a terrific hotel, well trained and friendly staff. We ate breakfast daily at the hotel before setting off into the French Quarter. Bar is also available near the beautiful courtyard and pool

Room Tip: ask for a view over the courtyard

This is a gem of a place. Well located in the French Quarter - with parking! Fee wifi too. Rooms are a bit dated, but are in keeping with this quirky and atmospheric hotel. There is a small pool in a court yard as well. The lobby & bar are well presented. Breakfast is expensive for what it is, so you might wish to find somewhere else in town. We enjoyed staying here and would stay again - you get the authentic New Orleans experience!

We recently stayed at this charming hotel in the French Quarter. It is close enough to everything to walk, but not so close you are in the midst of all the noise. The hotel is small but very well presented. The breakfast room is lovely, although there are many other great cafes nearby to choose from as well. We happily made use of the free coffee and tea each evening as there were no facilities in the room to make our own.
The room was big enough for the two of us and we had access to the balcony, which was lovely in the evenings. Good air-conditioning, which we needed as it was very hot in July.
Overall a great place to stay in a very interesting city.

Room Tip: Having access to the balcony was good.
