October 27, 2001, this hotel became home to 80 people that came together to celebrate my 50th birthday and in December 2008, 80 people are still talking about it! This is the perfect place for you group. Katrina might have changed New Orleans, but the family at LeRichelieu lives on along with the memories they created for us. When I go to New Orleans, I come home to LeRichelieu and the staff I consider my family. If you don't stay here, you have missed New Orleans!
My wife and I we're married in the courtyard of your hotel 17 years ago today.Golden Anniversary 17 on the 17th! Seems so long ago. Not in a bad way just looking at the pictures we were so young! The staff was great and served as wedding party and witnesses to the ceremony. The weather couldn't have been better that day; 82 degrees and sunny. I remember because it was almost hot compared to up here by Chicago. And '91 was our first trip to New Orleans so we couldn't have asked for a better introduction;Xmas time in the Quarter!Anyway just wanted to say thanks for everything that day and a few more times since. We've stayed at the hotel another 2 times over the years and good to know the hotel is there waiting for us to come back "home".The Quarter is definitely a familiar place now. Steve and Peggy Hicks
MY SISTER AND I STAYED AT THE HOTEL FOR TWO NIGHTS IN NOV.2008.IT WAS A TRULY WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE. THE STAFF WAS AMAZING.THEY WERE SO FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL.THE BAR WAS A GATHERING PLACE FOR THE NEIGHBORHOOD.LIKE CHEERS ,WITHIN MINUTES EVERYONE KNOWS YOUR NAME.FRANK YOU SHOULD BE PROUD . I WOULD RECCOMEND LE RICHELIEU TO ANYONE VISITING NEW ORLEANS.
We stayed at Le Rich for our honeymoon. Being locals, we knew we had a unique set of hotels to choose from, but the reviews I saw convinced me to book at Le Rich. We're so glad we did! The staff is friendly, the hotel is so quiet and it's in the middle of everything we wanted to do. We will definitely return.
My wife and I had just a one night stay but were most impressed with this small but full service hotel. The staff could not have been more accomodating. We especially liked the quiet location. Don't change a thing!
Wonderful hotel. Stayed numerous times over the last few years. Same great service each and every time. Some of the best Bloody Mary's on the planet!!!
Had heard rave reviews of this "quanit and charming hotel" for years from friends of ours who grew up in N.O. and are frequent visitors... Visited last January during a private event and we were VERY impressed.. Your hotel has an old-world charm and we found breakfast and coffee most relaxing in your polished wood bar area.. Everyone on your staff treated us grand and your room staff were very accomodating and through. Congratulations on a great rebirth after Katrina...
Good Luck in this tough time to the "Le Rich"! Had awesome time in the VIP Suite for our honeymoon in Jan. 1994! Great City back then! Great memories! Be Strong NOLA!
How did we make so many trips to this wonderful city and never stay at this fantastic hotel? The location is great,the Richelieu "family" is warm,welcoming, and go out of their way to make one feel at home. Our plans changed last minute and we were able to add a couple of days on the front end of our trip--One phone call from the road, and within minutes Tamera had taken care of us-we stayed in 203, balcony room the first night and then moved to 212,also a balcony room. Both were great-beds were perfect with lovely furnishings. The pool/courtyard area is a perfect spot to begin or end your day-with a small intimate bar and breakfast area that complete the package. This was the first time we have been in New Orleans with a car,being able to walk out the door,hop in your car and go was super-there was always someone in the guard house-and parking is included at no extra charge. So here's to you Le Richelieu--you are the real deal-your old world charm and elegance will keep us coming back for more--till then Take good care!!
My son and I stayed with you last week from August 9 through August 14, 2008. It was perfect as a "home away from home" and at an ideal spot in the Quarter for a family traveling with children, but who still wants to be within walking distance of all the cultural and culinary delights. I have already recommended you to friends traveling with or without children. All in all, you have a wonderful neighborhood feel and everyone was cordial. The pool and courtyard area were wonderful, too. Thanks again!
