We came to Blue Green Club La Pension through an exchange with RCI. We are not members of this particular TIme Share location and after reading some of the reviews previously, I had some doubts about our upcoming trip. I didnt expect a 5star hotel and thats not what this is.
We had a very clean, lovely suite of rooms that had recently been redecorated. It had a Jacuzzi bath in it, which was good after the long walks we took around the French Quarter . The staff there, especially Charmaine, was always friendly and helpful. If we needed extra coffee or anything, it was there in a snap. We were on the 4th floor and there is a terrace outside and a Hot Tub and Ice Machine that you can all utilize 24 hrs a day. We felt very safe here even though we were only two blocks from Burbon Street which gets very rowdy at night to say the least.
The restaurants are right nearby and so very good. I especially recommend Oliviers across the street for excellent Creole Cooking and wonderful restful atmosphere. It is a far cry from Acme Oyster House, which had great Oysters and Fried Fish dishes at a very reasonably price but is bustling and noisey. Dont forget to go down the streat to Cafe Du Monde any time of the day or night for their specialties
Chairmaine recommended two wonderful tours . One, a tour that included , Post Hurricaine, Cemetery Tour, The City, and for another day we took the Swamp Tour on airboat. They were both fascinating and well run. There is a River walk and Moon Walk area two blocks from the Hotel for a lovely night stroll by the Mississippi. And dont forget that Harrahs is two blocks away for a little gaming too.
All and all, we had a great get away for a week, and would recommend this place to anyone who wishes to see the city from a perspective of being right in the French Quarter yet feeling very comfortable in a great place to stay.
