French Quarter Inn-
I stayed here during the triathlon weekend and picked this hotel since it served as race headquarters for packet pick up. The transition area was also set up just in front of the hotel which was very convienant. The hotel itself is fairly nice, appeared to be clean, and the staff was pleasant. There were some animals but I don't think you would have noticed if you hadn't seen them. The walls throughout the hotel are very thin and you can easily hear the occupants in the other rooms which wasn't a big problem for me. Breakfast is an extra eight bucks and the dining room doesn't open till 8am. I was really surprised by this, since a lot of hotels are including breakfast in their nightly rates now. But the 8am opening time really surprised me. The hotel was full of triathletes who were up early for the race which made a 8am breakfast too late. It seems that the owner would have recognized this and had made arrangements for the dining room to open early, After the race I overheard another triathlete ask the front desk if she could extend her checkout 30 mins past the normal checkout time of noon. The clerk immediately refused the request and stated the the owner was very adamant that there would be no late check outs. Additionally, the pool was not in service during my stay. Despite the temperatures in the 90's during memorial day weekend, they had not opened it for the summer yet. Overall, I was left a bit disappointed by my stay, the room was just average, and a bit noisy The hotel could easily make up for its shortcomings by being more accommodating. As it was, I never felt welcome at this hotel and it seemed that the owner simply tolerates the triathlon crowd rather than embracing us customers. The French Quarter definitely has potential but next time I'll probably stay somewhere else.
