I have been going to New Orleans for fourty years and have stayed in many FQ hotels. I was looking for a hotel in the lower FQ with a pool. I am so delighted to have "discovered" Le Richelieu after all these years! The decor really captures that FQ ambience without those hefty prices. Our room was clean although dated but so what? Our bed was comfortable, the staff was very friendly, the pool was great for a summer stay in the FQ, we loved the quiet neighborhood around the hotel and loved the convenience of a bar and restaurant (breakfast and lunch) onsite. I would definitely stay again!
