My friend and I stayed here in August 2004, we had an amazing holiday in New Orleans made so memorable by the warmth of everybody at Le Richelieu. I have been following the news in the UK and seeing the heratbreaking scenes in the aftermath of the hurricane, I am so deeply saddened by it. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

My two friends and I spent 4 nights at your hotel this past April. It was our first time in New Orleans. Everyone at the hotel was so pleasant and kind. Our prayers are with all of you and hope you all are safe.

We have stayed at Le Richelieu 3 times in the last 12 months and always enjoyed our stays. We left the Sunday before Katrina hit. I hope all is well with all the employees and the hotel itself. Although we will have to cancel our October trip it appears I hope to see you again in April. David & Nancy

Making contact after Katrina: Joanne Kirkpatrick is safe and very concerned about everyone else. She is on the road to a relative's home (this message sent via a friend). Co-workers and friends can reach her (temporarily) at e-mail; bakerne@lisd.net. She asked that I convey her prayers, caring and concern. I can't help including my own concern for all of you. Please know that the people of New Orleans and the Gulf Coast are in the hearts and prayers of millions of people all over the world.

Dear, Dear Friends, First of all let me say thank you to John & Ala Donabie for having the foresight to find the status of the "faces" of the hotel. We hope all the friendly employees of the hotel have remained safe and finding out about any makes us breathe a little easier. We had planned to visit in October again this year but that seems unlikely I suppose. We would like however to ask the reservation desk to keep the website up to date as to when you will be prepared to accept reservations. We want to come and visit you our friends as soon as possible. Until then we will have you in our hearts and minds. We survived the '94 earthquake, you'll get past this. Very Truly Yours, Dan & Randi
