We’ve passed this place a million times and have always wanted to stay there. We did and enjoyed it. We frequent the area and it was nice to be in safe walking distance after a night out. The staff is super friendly and the hotel is clean. No complaints here. We would stay there again.

This property has recently undergone a renovation. The common areas and our room were still covered in dirt and dust. They had not performed a final cleaning after construction was complete. Parking was convenient but very expensive and the lot fills up quickly. Very walkable area. Close to plenty of restaurants and shopping. This does come at a is very loud and the hotel walls are paper thin. Overall, this hotel has promise. But desperately needs a thorough cleaning.

Parking is not included with the hotel pricing it is additional $50 to stay in the hotel secured lot. Probably wouldn’t have stayed there if I had known up front. Lot was full and prepaid reservations doesn’t mean you get to park in the lot. Had to walk 4 to 5 blocks from hotel to park at another location owned by the hotel and carry luggage back and forth.

The property is advertised online and via Expedia as having parking. I was charged, and paid in advance, for parking. Yet upon returning Saturday night I was turned away by a security guard waving his hands and blocking entry to the parking lot. He said they were "full" and I had to find a place to park on the street, in the pouring rain. Upon inquiry, the rude woman working the front desk said it was "first come, first served" and she would refund my parking fee. She did not refund anything and I still have the charge on my card. I have attempted to enlist the help of Expedia but it has turned a cold shoulder and a cold heart to helping those who stay at places that clearly pay it for advertising. The entire situation is a disgrace. I will certainly never stay at Le Richelieu again and won't be using Expedia, either.

In a residential area of the French Quarters, but close enough to walk to the wild side- Burbon Street, if that’s what you crave. Recently opened, professional and courteous staff.

This is an aging hotel. The rooms need some updating and are overdue for some deep cleaning. We have stayed here a number of times and intend to continue to do so. We hope the new owners take heed about the need for some room upgrades. Thanks
