An old building which was the residence of the French religious ruler when he visited the city in the 18th century. Has a nice courtyard pool, friendly and helpful check-in and restaurant staff. And, there are some of the currently best restaurants and jazz clubs in town within a short walking distance.

We stayed at Le Richelieu on the 15th while in town for the Stevie Nicks show at the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans. The staff was outstanding, meeting our every need! Our suite was clean and comfortable and the history of the hotel was intriguing and informative. Minutes from anything on foot in the French Quarter. I've already booked...

Great trip! Great accommodations- close to Bourbon and the big party. Noisy at night but you should be out partying anyways 🎉 Roof top pool and gym were a major bonus. We got nice weather and we're able to soak up some sun by the pool. No one else seemed to use it. Clean, well stocked and overall great experience.

Great location in the French Quarter...quiet and close proximity to all the sights and sounds of NOLA! Staff friendly. Bar and dining area very nice. Room clean...furnishings old, but acceptable. Nice stay.

This hotel was chosen by friends from out of town, meeting them here I was immediately pleased with their choice of accommodations. With secure gated parking, located just a short walk from the heart of the French Quarter proved to be convenient, affordable and comfortable. The hotel room was a little dated and the bathroom was a throwback from the...

I went on a trip around the US from New Zealand and I must say this place was my favorite. The rooms are basic but classic. The location is amazing. Just out of the quarter but within walking distance to everything. I felt safe. The staff were attentive and security guards were so kind. I'm definitely coming back here!! If...

This is a lovely old hotel with parking out back. Right from the front door to the wait staff at the bar, we were very impressed with every one. The fact that this beautiful old building is about 3 blocks from Bourbon St. was a real bonus.

Stayed at the Le Richelieu for 4 nights during the last weekend of Mardi Gras. We had an early flight into town and went straight to the hotel hoping to check in and just store our bags. To our surprise, our room was actually ready at 10:30am. The room had a refrigerator so we went out and bought some drinks...

The hotel is in a great location, and has nice common areas, and secure parking. With that said, our bathroom in room 403 was beyond "dated" -it was in ill repair. The photos will show the cabinet under the sink had a spot that actually had paint peeling away and is soft to the touch and rotten. The shower had...

Staying in French Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
