Brittany and the front desk
Our vacation was amazing from start to finish. Brittany is the best addition to your hotel! She made us feel like we were home. Honestly, I would visit again based on her alone!!

French Quarter Gem
Fourth stay at Le Richelieu. I like the remodel. Pool is perfect during the summer heat. Bed was super comfy and the AC worked well. The staff is super nice. My fave place in the French Quarter. Quiet area.

Charming historic hotel
We enjoyed our one night stay there. The hotel is charming and in the heart of New Orleans’ French Quarters. The front lobby has historic charm to it and the rooms are no frills but large with comfortable beds. The pool courtyard is lovely and charming as well. Everyone at the front desk was very nice and helpful. The area definitely feels a little questionable as far as safety goes but I did appreciate the security of the hotel and gated parking lot. They specifically opened and closed it for us whenever we came or left. Parking is $50 a day but that seems to be the case for most hotels in the area. No breakfast, or microwave/fridge in the room.
