From journal Weekend Getaway to the French Quarter

The staff was very helpful and friendly; daily housekeeping was provided at no additional charge. The desk called us the night before check out to arrange taxi service for us to the airport.
Due to the resort's location, a car is not necessary. We chose to walk to almost all sites, although we did use a public bus and street car. There is also a free ferry to take you across the river to visit Mardi Gras World. Resort location is very important in New Orleans; we would advise staying at a resort within the French Quarter. The resort offers parking for $15/day if needed. Parking is about a block away. There are many restaurants within a few blocks that range from $8 to $50 per meal.
I would advise not eating at the restaurants on Bourbon Street. The atmosphere was exciting, but the food was better away from Bourbon Street. You must stop at Cafe du Monde for a beignet and the Central Grocery for a muffuletta.
There are many tour companies offering city, swamp and plantation tours. We chose to take a city and swamp tour. Both were very informative and enjoyable. We also took a two hour tour down the Mississippi river on the Steamer Natchez. It was a relaxing ride that explained the value of ports along the Mississippi. Be sure to look for discount coupons for restaurants and tours. Check on the internet or get them from the Visitors Bureau before you go.

The very best part of the hotel was our own personal suite mouse, which stayed with us the entire time! We felt it was probably an ancestor from generations who have lived in the nether regions of the hotel. It was quite cute, ate very little--a few kernals of popcorn, some nuts, and a bit of broccoli--and left no noticeable mess.
All in all, while we had a wonderful time in New Orleans. We would not stay at the Quarter House again and would advise RCI that they do not come close to deserving a 'Resort of International Distinction' rating.

I would suggest staying here if you want to be close to everything and don't want to bother with transportation. Otherwise, with a slight inconvenience of no parking garage attached, it can be a problem when it's raining. They also charge $.75 to use one washer and dryer located in the laundry room. On Saturday-Monday mornings, continental breakfast is served. Maid service is provided every day as well, which was very nice.
