“great historical building in the french quarter”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2012

I have visited New Orleans many times but have never stayed in any of the historical hotels in the French Quarter. It was great being within walking distance of everything and I thought the building was beautiful. If you want fancy fixtures you should probably stay in one of the highrises on Canal St. That is not what this place is about. Everything in our room worked fine. The parking is a great plus. This is a quiet side of the Quarter, which I personally like. We had a great time. I would definitely stay again.

This is an amazing place to stay when visiting NOLA. The location can't be beat! you are 2 blocks away from everying including, trolly car, bourbon, frenchman st. the marken, coffee shop, restaurants, shopping etc. The owner Frank is a wonderful man with an amazing heart, his staff are like family to him he states and I can see why, they are like family and make everyone who walks through that beautiful door feel at home. We had a balcony room on the 3rd floor and it was wonderful, bed was comfortable, small fridge and everything we needed. The outdoor pool was fabulous and I won't stay anywhere else, it is close enough to catch the action for anything, but far enough to retreat and hang on the balcony for a couple cocktails while enjoying the sounds, smells and tastes NOLA has to offer. I would recommend without hesitation, not a fancy place or high class, but that isn't what NOLA is about anyway. Stay here, you won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: 3rd floor balcony is private, 2nd floor is shared with others staying on this floor.

The place still has its charm but is overrated by some reviews. The desk and bar staff are not as friendly as some report. They appear to be bored and going through the motions. The room was OK. The bathroom was decent sized but badly in need of new fixtures. We had to call for service twice on the toilet and it still never worked right. The shower head was unadjustable and pounded water down on you. The A/C unit was ancient and unadjustable. The bed was OK, and there was a walk in closet and outer deck to the street. I had heard that there was no coffee maker in the room, but when we asked, they brought one up with coffee for each day for free. Otherwise you have to walk down to the bar area to pour your own free coffee and bring it back to room. Don't know why they dont just provide coffee makers in each room. Strange, quirky place to stay but a good quiet location near to most things on that side of the quarter. A bit more of a walk to the busier west side.

Room Tip: Ask for one with an outside balcony and ask for a coffee maker. Good Italian restaurant a block awa...

I almost don't want to share this info-since this place is such a great deal and great location and I want to be sure I gert the room I want when I return.
We found the staff welcoming pleasant and very funny. Ladies talking to you you through the kitchen windows was one of my highlights as was chatting with the owner Frank who still stops to pick up items on the terrace. My other highlight was sitting out on our balcony after a long day havign a night cap or sipping a coffee as the sun was rising . We loved room 311. Our intention is to return to New Orleans every year and Le Richelieu is the only hotel we will ever stay in again. There is no better location. That said it is the staff that made our stay special. .We will thank them personally when we return. Frank you don't own a hotel you own our home away from home. Like other reviews state is you want the new stuff go somewhere else. But if your interest is New Orleans the music and real life in New Orleans this place is it
We won't stay in another place-there is no need. There is a coffee shop and bar around the corner a deli and variety store a block up, The Market and street car two blocks south, Bourbon two blocks north. Frenchman two blocks east. Preservation Jazz Hall 1 block south. And all of this is in an amazing neighbourhood. Good luck to me finding the room I want now!!

Room Tip: There is no fitness centre and I didn;t order breakfaast. There is no NA option Tell them bob says...

Yes, this hotel is charming. Yes, it is a bit old. Yes, it is in the quiet part of the Quarter. Yes, the staff is very nice. Yes, it is a wonderful place to stay! If you want all the modern amenities and fluff go elsewhere. This place is the best. Stayed here last October and again in April. Each time in a one bedroom suite. I choose Le Richelieu as my first choice place to stay in the French Quarter!

Room Tip: Choose a one bedroom suite when lower prices are available....lots of room for a low price!
