At the "locals" end of the French Quarter, a stone's throw from the French Market, the music clubs of Frenchman Street, and excellent restaurants, Le Richelieu is also a few minutes walk to all the popular "must-see" sites such as Jackson Square, Canal Street, and the "mighty Mississippi." Thanks to the streetcar line and public bus system, a car is unnecessary, though the Richelieu provides safe, on-site parking for a reasonable fee. The hotel is very "old New Orleans" and decorated accordingly with beautiful antiques. If you need anything, just ask. The entire staff is there to help you find your way around safely and comfortably. The cozy bar offers lovely drinks, the cafe attracts many New Orleanians, especially for Sunday brunch. The salt-water pool is an oasis of tropical pleasure and as the charming, octogenarian owner says, the lack of chlorine prevents damage to "the ladies hair-does!" My room was clean, comfortable, and the little refrigerator was great for storing drinks and leftovers from the great restaurants. If you like a small, cozy, quaint-but-elegant hotel with a convenient, safe, quiet(ish) location (New Orleans is rarely sedate!), then stay at Le Richelieu and enjoy the best town in the USA.
