Another incredible vacation! This place makes me want to do a commercial on it. Our 10 day April stay was our best yet! The staff is excellent,very caring, and Jim and Linda are consummate professionals. We love crepes around the pool, and Michael anticipates every need, with that great sense of humor. Speaking of crepes, don't miss those paper thin wonders out of that quaint kitchen. Those ladies know how to cook! If you want a cookie cutter/no personality/new fangled hotel, stay away from here. This place is steeped in southern hospitality at it's most elegantly delivered, which means to me that the staff WANTS to serve you well. After 4 visits in 3 years, I've stayed in several rooms. The rooms are large, expensively decorated, comfy baths stocked to overflowing, and the walk in closets are devine. I find the suite appliances and baths dated back several decades, but maintained meticulously, speaking of the quality of the original investment. Joanne Kirkpatrick, manager over 30 years, should write a book about making guests feel at home. Her management skills are evident at every turn, and she enjoys a wonderful reputation in the community for this quality property. This staff is dedicated to making sure your stay is not good, but perfect. We travel a lot and I've never felt more welcome, or been more pampered. I was even asked to call and let them know we made it home safely. Congratulations on a first class hotel, Frank, and thanks to Joanne and all the staff! Have our room ready next April. We're already planning. Emails with questions welcome.

My friend Margie Berglund, and I stayed at the LeRichelieu Hotel April 26th, and April 27, 2004. The entire staff really did a terrific job for us. Thank You. Everything was better than I ever expected. The staff really treats you as a VIP guest. Thanks Linda for your exact map directions. This Hotel will always be on my list when visiting New Orleans. May God Bless You All.

I love the Le Richelieu hotel!! We just had our wedding in the courtyard and stayed in the honeymoon suite and it was all GREAT! The staff especially Tamra Mulla was exceptional! I am defiantly going to stay there again and will defiantly encourage others to do the same. Very Warm Southern Hospitallity!

Decided I really needed to do this now. My husband and I and another couple just stayed at the Le Richelieu Hotel, March 29,30 and 31, 2004. It turned out to be just what we wanted. A charming small scale hotel with lots of character and it's hard to believe, but it's actually quiet,and it's in the French Quarter! The secure, free parking is just a wonderful bonus. The cafe is charming and the food very good. Troy was alot of fun. The whole staff was always ready to help. Plumbing a little slow at peak hours, but plan ahead. Location is wonderful. You can walk to just about everything. All in all we were 100% pleased with the whole stay. I almost cancelled because another site had some negative comments on it. Don't know what some people are looking for but if you want the Ritz type, stay there and be a number. Or stay at the Le Richelieu and enjoy a charming, quiet hotel where you count.
