My husband and I stayed three nights at Le Richelieu in the French Quarter of New Orleans while attending the French Quarter Jazz Festival. We agree with the reviews that use the words "charming" and "quiet", and tt was an easy walk to anywhere in the French Quarter. The front desk staff is unfailingly cheerful, polite, and helpful. We liked the easy access to parking and the gated, secure parking area. However, it is not "charming" to have water up to your ankles in the shower because of slow drains. It is not "quaint" to have the cord for the coffee maker stretched across the sink to reach the only electrical outlet available. Our room was small, and the sink and refrigerator and a disconnected stove were built into what was obviously once a closet, so we had to slide the closet doors back and forth to make and pour coffee, then slide again to get cream out of the refrigerator. The lobby and hallways are clean but need updating. The bathroom definitely needs updating. And each night, we fought the bottom sheet coming off of the bed; thick mattresses need bigger sheets or better bed-making techniques. We had to unplug the in-room alarm clock to have an outlet to charge our laptop and cell phones.

Room Tip: The rooms vary as to amenities. Ask for a refrigerator and in-room coffee if you want either.

We stayed here during the NCAA 2012 Final Four, a total of 7 nights. We had no promblem getting to the Superdome, but we could not get a taxis back if our life depended on it (and after you have walked 20 min.in the pouring rain you feel like it did). You can ride the Streetcars part of the way, but the one that goes to the Frenchmarket closes between 9pm and 10pm. Well enough of that the hotel itself is old, but clean. We had a lower level room , which had a little musty smell when it rained. The room was just a regural small old hotel room. There was a mini refrigerator in the closet, it also had a I phone changer, a hair dryer, and a small flat screen tv in the room. I have to say that it was a little noisy escpecially in the morning. They are alway working on sometime outside and the walls are not as thich as otherwise stated by other reviews.(that includes the interior walls).They do have free coffee in the restrurant. You have to get it yourself. We did eat breakfast there 2 times it is ok, but nothing special. They close the restruant at 2pm, but the bar stays open until 12am I think. The swimming poool is very small and I only seen one family using it. This was our first trip to NOLA and I guess for the money this was a good place to stay. I do think if I go back I would look at other places, especially if I was going to a event at the Superdome.

Room Tip: Try to stay on the top floor if you can. I hope you have better luck than us.

Stayed in the King Suite. Roomy, clean, lots of storage and quiet. Dated? Yes but that is part of the charm! Staff is very friendly. The location is prime if you are more interested in the quiet side of NOLA. Frenchmen Street is just a couple blocks away as is the open air market and numerous places to eat. You cant go wrong with this place!

Hotel Le Richelieu in the French Quarter is a charming hotel in a historic building and is quite close to Bourbon St. , restaurants, shops, and places of historic interest such as Jackson Square. It is located on a quiet block and was very pleasant to stay there. The staff could not have been more helpful. Keys are still returned to the front desk when you leave the hotel. I enjoyed staying in my room with two double beds and a balcony. A few suggestions for improvement : bathroom could use some updating, better lighting would help. I would like a coffee maker in the room at least for hot water. A safe in the room would have been convenient.
