Very much enjoyed our stay at your fine hotel the end of September. Close enough to Bourbon Street without the constant noise. Staff was always courteous and helpful. I will definitely visit again and recommend to anyone else who is visiting New Orleans.

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.
