Le Richelieu Hotel


Le Richelieu Hotel

Le Richelieu offers the charm and history of an old New Orleans boutique hotel, with reasonable rates and an amazing location close to Decatur Street, Jackson Square, Washington Artillery Park and more can't-miss French Quarter attractions.

Built in 1845 and expanded in 1902, Le Richelieu was reincarnated as an apartment building, a mansion, and even a macaroni factory before the current owner turned it into a full-service hotel in 1969. Its past as an apartment building means that each room is spacious and well-appointed, with a range of amenities and free Wi-Fi. The Terrace Cafe and Lounge offers light bites and expertly made drinks, so it's easy to end each evening with your favorite nightcap.

Many staff members at Le Richelieu have worked at the hotel for over 10 years, with several enjoying a tenure from the hotel's early days. You'll get knowledgeable directions on the best places to go to hear genuine local music, including the nearby Frenchmen Street, which offers the city's best jazz clubs.
