... grupy z Polski jeszcze tam nie było więc zostawiamy po sobie ślad. To by było na tyle z tych pierwszych kilku dni, jeśli coś nam się przypomni na pewno dopiszemy. Dopiero dzisiaj tak naprawdę zaczynamy funkcjonować w amerykańskim czasie więc postaramy się zaglądać tu troche częściej. Przed nami cały dzień w jak narazie fascynującym Nowy Orleanie, ale o tym w kolejnym odcinku ...

They use them because they're white (apparently gators can only see black and white) and they float, so they cause the ripples that attract them. We parked in a small reedy area and the guide (a 20-something year old local) jumped into the reeds right next to a 15-year old gator they've called "Nola". He even let some of the tourists pat her...which I felt was really ...

I found out that the school bus guy had pulled in a few days earlier, he had been parked on the street and was being hassled by the cops so Pearl let him park there.

Historical Traveler Reviews Quarter House Resort New Orleans
Great French Quarter Hotel
Two of my friends and I just got back from NO. The Quarter House is great! We got a room with a balcony in room 208. Not all has a balcony. It is only a block away from the action, but far enough to get peaceful sleep. For us the hotel is a family oriented, and we were the only single young people there. Regardless, we loved it. Around the corner is ACME, which is great Cajun restaurant. We probably won't stay again since we like to try different places. But I highly highly recommend it. Mardi Gras was great too!!!
I stayed here in 1997 for my honeymoon and it was fantastic! The room was so beautiful and I loved the jacuzzi. The location was great, the staff was nice. I liked that they were there 24 hours. The croissants & mimosas in the morning was a nice touch too. I highly recommend the Quarter House. Its a bit pricey but its really worth it! It currently rates as the best place I've stayed in the French Quarter.
It Was Great!
We had 23 people staying at the Quarter House, 129 Chartres in the French Quarter the weekend before Thanksgiving. It is a resort atmosphere! 6 of us stayed in one of the lock out suites which had a kitchen, 2 bedrooms, and 2 living areas with sofa sleepers! The staff treated us very well - the rooms were clean, and the trip was very enjoyable. It's worth every penny of it. Check out the virtual tour on their website - you'll be pleasantly surprised! Tell Vondell we said hi!
PERFECT ROMANTIC RETREAT
In the heart of French Quarter, and absolutely withi walking distance of all the FQ landmarks.
Old world charm abounds, staff is most attentive, our one bedroom apartment had all the comforts of home and a fully equipped kitchen complete with bar glass rack. The brick courtyard is perfect for late night soaks, and although the pool is small it offered great ambiance and lots of privacy even at 3:00 AM We will absolutely go back!
Nice New Orleans Experience
Had a nice time at the hotel. Most of the staff was very nice, especialy Mike and Mr. Roy. Stay away from Aida.
If you have the choice stay at a room that ends in A or B. Avoid staying on the bottom floor if possible. Great location, on the edge of the french quarter, just far enough to be able to sleep and close enough to be in walking distance from all. Don't bring a car if you can help it, you'll pay extra for parking and you will not have much use for it. Hotel parking is a good deal, no need to go looking for alternatives.
If you like Mexican food, the restaurant around the corner is very authentic and a great value.
The Quarter House was well worth the price
I called the hotel the night before to tell them we would be checking in late. They let me know the front desk is staffed 24 hours. We we got in, check-in was smooth and our suite was just as shown on their web site. The front desk personnnel was courteous and as helpful as one can ask for.
Another couple was joining us and since we had a one bedroom with a pull out sofa, I asked if we could upgrade. They said if someone checked out early, that it could be arranged. In the meantime, the front desk supplied us with one of those fabric air mattresses with electric pump for the sleeper sofa. Our friends arrived that night and found the sofa bed to be as comfortable as any bed.
They had a free continental breakfast on the weekend with fresh fruit filled croissants as well as fresh fruit, coffee and orange juice. Delicious. the hotel also had a free wine and cheese party in the courtyard by the pool on Sunday evening.
Housekeeping at the Quarter House was great, and on our last day, we came to get our bags and I noticed they had even stripped the shower curtain. I guess so there would be no chance of any mildew building up as you might have read about in reviews of other hotels.
All in all, the staff at the Quarter House is great. As we were waiting for our ride to the airport, a delivery man told the desk about some water on the floor from the pool in the courtyard. In less than 2 minutes, maintenance had it cleaned up. This place costs a little more, but you will probably never read a unhappy review about the Quarter House.
The Quarter House was the best thing about our New Orleans trip! Everyone was helpful, poliete and went out of their way to see that your stay was the best. Our "condo" was perfect. I would highly recommend The Quarter House for your stay. It was worth the money and is within walking distance to everything in the French Quarter.
Actually wanted to stay here, but the hotel was fully booked due to a convention. However we went to take a look at it (out of interest) and it looked pretty good. The staff were very helpful - especially the conceirge and reception staff who booked us on a local tour - they were very, very friendly and seemed interested in how guests returning from trips had gotten on. We would definitely stay there if we returned to Nawlins! The only thing I would say is it doesn't look great from the outside (the windows especially don't look like they've been cleaned in a while) - has anyone who's stayed there managed to see out of them!?
Quarter House Wins Our Votes!
Review of the Quarter House on Chrtres St. by email@example.com, Sacramento, Ca was right on! Great place to stay. Rooms & swuites are sumptuous, excellent service. It's with walking distance of most of the French Quarter; Jackson Square & the French Market are just a few blocks away. Canal St. & the St. Charles streetcar (to Garden District & Uptown) are almost next door. The artsy Warehouse District & even parts of Magazine St. are within walking distance. We've stayed there 3 times & love it. Tip: Catch Chef Vincent's cooking class on Wed. afternoons.
We have stayed in New Orleans about 12 times and have found the Quarter House to be the perfect stay. All the rooms are 1 or 2 bedroom suites with kitchen. They have a pool and hot tub which are small, but that is the last thing you should be doing in the French Quarter. The rooms are very nice and quite. The best part is everthing is close
Bourbon street 2blocks Casinso 3 blocks jackson Square 3 blocks French Market 6 blocks River walk 4 blocks Downtown 2 to 6 blocks
It's great and remember when pricing rooms the tax was included in the price they quoted us. At most places they add at check out and it is usually $20 to $35 per night
