I've been reading rave reviews of this property, on the AOL New Orleans Travel Board, for a few years, but the weekend before last was our first opportunity to stay here. It was everything we expected and hoped it would be. The hotel just oozes New Orleans charm, from the friendly desk clerk at check-in, to the room (junior suite), to the food and the servers in the restaurant at breakfast. We're returning next weekend, with two other couples, for a birthday celebration, and I'm eager to introduce them to Le Richelieu. We're frequent visitors to New Orleans, having stayed at many of the French Quarter and Central Business District hotels, and I'd have to put Le Richelieu right at the top of desirable places to stay in New Orleans.

My husband and I spent a wonderful long weekend here over Thanksgiving 2003. We were celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary. We stayed in the "wedding suite", which was just perfect. We were very impressed and felt very welcomed by the entire staff. We can't wait to return, this time bringing our teenagers to experience the French Quarter.

We love this "little hotel". It is always our pleasure to stay here when we visit New Orleans. It is clean, quiet and the owner and staff are wonderful. We love the size and the quaintness of the surroundings, the wonderful little restaurant and bar, and the parking, a big plus for the quarter. Looking forward to our next visit, can't wait!!

Found the hotel by accident after deciding to spend New Year's Eve in New Orleans. With the Sugar Bowl that weekend and the holiday, many hotel's were booked. We drove around calling places and by luck, the Le Richelieu had a room. It was wonderful luck as we found our stay to be one of the best we've ever experienced at a hotel. The hotel is close enough to everything to be convenient but far enough that the noise of Burbon St does not intrude. The staff was excellent, very knowledgeable, friendly and accomodating. I highly recommend the hotel and am looking forward to staying there the next time I go to New Orleans.

Last week, we stayed at Le Richelieu for only 2 days prior to our cruise but we thoroughly enjoyed every moment. The people we met at the hotel were the most friendly of any staff we have ever encountered in a hotel. Colleen, Pam, Troy, Tasha and all of the staff at the front desk and in the bar/restaurant made this trip pleasurable from start to finish. The Paul McCartney suite was perfect and we slept great in that wonderful bed. We only regret that time did not allow us to return for the day following our cruise, as planned, so that we could say a proper goodbye to everyone. We'll be returning soon and totally look forward to our next stay! We couldn't recommend Le Richelieu more!
