I will avoid too much fluff-speak:
Date of Stay: 16-23 November, 2012
Party of...2 humans, 1 dog (yes they are pet-friendly - BIG SMILE)
Type of stay: Timeshare (in house exchange - no charge)
Room: 504 - dark, no view, and a little cramped but well-equipped & nice enough for us & Einstein. Could use some furniture/lighting/bedding updating.
Check in: Quick & I mean QUICK and friendly - we checked in after midnight. One paper plus $100 cleaning fee for the dog and 1 paper for parking directions ($20/day valet - cheapest in the city and only 2 blocks from entrance to QH)- DONE! Room keys in hand :-) - maybe 3 minutes.
Quarter House atmosphere: friendly and ZERO timeshare push (another BIG SMILE). Tended to be a bit dark everywhere inside. Elevator worked. Front desk personnel very friendly. Buzzer for front door made me feel that I was in the "red district" but I never had a worry - even walking the dog early morning or late night. I did NOT like the auto-reminder to "watch your step" that played at full-volume when anyone went through the front door.
Tuesday Wine hour: very well-attended - nice gesture. Looked like a lot of owners have been around awhile.
Sunday Brunch: Like any continental breakfast at a Best Westerns or La Quintas.
Cooking Class: Cancelled (not sure why)
Building Exterior/Entrance: Nice - need to have wheelchair ramp for suitcase carts. It was impossible to maneuver up/down door steps. Again - they need to lose the recorded "watch your step" warning.
Check out: Handed in keys - quick & easy. Done! Fridays are busy check-in/out days.
Would recommend to anyone with a small pet. Couples or families. No heavy partiers please - this is a nice, friendly, NOLA vacation spot and I hope it stays as it is...maybe with a little more light in the rooms. Would loved to have read more of the history of the building also.
