My girlfriend and I stayed at the Richelieu August 8, 2009 thru August 12, 2009. As many others have said, the rates are great, the hotel is clean and quiet and very well located in the Quarter i.e. close enough but also far enough away from things. The employees are all helpful and we really appreciated the now-usual help in printing our airline boarding passes. Advice is readily available at the front desk and it was nice to converse several times with the owner, Mr. Rochefort. This is my sixth time staying at the Richelieu and we look forward to the next time. (If looking for a fun time, go to the dog park on Dauphine Street, just a few blocks NW. Fun to watch the dogs and their owners.) Glad to have been back at the hotel again !!!
What can I add that hasn't been said before. Just got back from a long weekend stay. August 20-23. This hotel is a hidden gem. The courteous staff will go above and beyond any others in town. Quaint little courtyard with nice pool, close walking distance to the Quarters. Private onsite FREE parking, one of the best showers ever. Felt like we were part of a family. Give it a try next time in town!
Stayed at Le Richelieu July 24th - July 26th 2009. Enjoyed the stay tremendously. I enjoyed the old world charm of the hotel and the staff was attentive to my every need. This was first visit to New Orleans. Will definetly recommend and visit again. Parking was great and the neighborhood was quiet, yet close to everything. Can't say enough good things!
Hi everyone, I recently stayed at Le Richelieu,2009, the whole hotel experience was great: the staff are very friendly, informative and ready to help whenever they can. My room was cleaned everyday (sheets were changed, rooms dusted, bathroom cleaned), which is very important to me. I like the fact that I could leave mu hotel key at the front desk - you don't have to worry about misplacing the key. They serve breakfast/lunch for most of the day, so you can have a lie in and still eat breakfast at 1pm! The bar staff are so sweet and freindly, I felt really safe at all times. They also have a swimming pool, which is great for afternoon dips as New Orleans gets very hot in the summer! The location is great: it is a couple (literally) of minutes from the french market, the famous Cafe Du Monde and Canal Street is just 5 minutes up the street. Taxis are parked outside of the hotel everyday so you can easily catch a cab to any destination. Overall I would give this hotel 8 out of 10. It really is a small, clean, central and safe hotel to stay in.
I was married at the LeRichelieu this past March and it was wonderful. All our guest rave about how friendly the staff was and the wedding was one they will never forget. It was beautiful and fun. Thank you to everyone at the LeRichelieu for making a very special day perfect!! Drehr Chidester
This place can only be described as wonderful. Nice employees, great food, come and go free parking, old world charm. I could go on and on but I know after you have experienced staying here you will finish my praise for me.
Two of my brothers and their wives from New Jersey and us met in New Orleans for holiday. It's always great to see family but it was better than expected because of Le Richelieu. The front desk staff were always helpful and friendly, Renny is a great bartender, the waiters were excellent and the cleaning staff kept everything perfect. I can't say enough nice things about Le Richelieu. It was our first trip to New Orleans and if we ever come back (we always opt for a new place to travel. The USA has so much to see!) we know where we are staying. Thanks much to all who made our stay so pleasant.
This is the longest period of time that my wife Ala and I have been separated from Le Richelieu. Lots of reasons why........some good and some bad; but we're coming back before year end.
We stayed three nights the end of march. We had not planned to come back (there is so much to see in this country and we have so little time), BUT -- the staff members were SO NICE (every single one of them that we encountered) that we have decided to come back about the same time next year. We hope! (Your web site says every day is full from January to March 2010. I hope it is just a glitch!
Stayed Easter week. Fantastic room and the staff COULD NOT HAVE been more helpful or friendly. We'll be back next year.
