Bluegreen Vacations Club La Pension, Ascend Resort Collection

Reviewed August 3, 2007

I would prefer to rate this location a 3-1/2, but that was not an option. Unfortunately, I don't have any other New Orleans experiences to compare this to. This was my first trip to New Orleans. I wasn't sure what the environment would be like post-Katrina. The restaurants, of course, are fabulous!

I stayed at Club La Pension through an exchange company (RCI). Because it is a timeshare, I was asked to take a tour. I declined, and they obliged. I was pleasantly surprised with the resort. I was a little nervous with it having limited front desk hours, but I suppose that's not unusual with the smaller hotels in the area. The resort consists of historic buildings on the edge of the French Quarter (Decatur & Canal Streets). The unit is a quaint, yet sufficient, one-bedroom with a partial kitchen (perfect for leftovers). The unit has a maximum occupancy of four, but I can't imagine more than two people staying there comfortably.

Resort amenities are limited: hot tub -- no pool, laundry facilities, and sun deck, but the area offers plenty to do. The best part of the resort is its location. It is within walking distance to everything the French Quarter has to offer. Fabulous restaurants, The House of Blues, Harrah's casino and Riverwalk are less than two blocks away. The Canal Street streetcar stop is on the corner. No need for a vehicle at this location -- walk it or take the streetcar.

The front desk staff as well as housekeeping were helpful, when needed. I felt very safe traveling alone. Good job, Club La Pension. There is a restaurant on the premises, but I did not indulge.
