Located a block away from Bourbon Street, the Le Richelieu in the French Quarter is close to dining, shopping, parks, cultural and historic attractions, and a short distance from the Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium, Audubon Aquarium of the Americas, and the Louisiana Children’s Museum. The hotel has free Wi-Fi, patio, cafÃ©, lounge, and an outdoor pool.
For accommodations, families will like the two-bed double room, the one-bedroom king room with a living room and sleeper sofa, and the two-bedroom suite with two baths. All rooms have refrigerators, and suites also have microwaves.

Members of my family have been coming here since 2002. There are reasons: great location (most major sites within easy walk); quiet; clean; great staff and a nice little restaurant and bar. We didn’t have a car because of such a great location but know there is a secure lot. Reasonable rates. Bit dated but in a charming sort of French Quarter way. Almost hate to tell you about this place...
Another stay at Le Richelieu. Convenient location 2 blocks north of French Market. Secured parking. Nice little restaurant/bar and pool. We got a second floor room that opened out onto a wraparound balcony. Has a small refrigerator. Very nice staff all around. Our favorite place to stay.
