    This is a nostalgic hotel in a great location of the French Quarter. I loved the proximity to Canal Street, the ferry, streetcars, and Riverwalk. Our room was dark but I soon learned that low light is very normal in the Quarter. The hotel had a nice wine gathering on Tuesday and a continental breakfast on Sunday (nothing fancy - just typical pastries, juice, & coffee). The hotel did NOT try to sell or push any units - they did NOT pitch anything - BIG SMILE for that. We also loved the parking arrangement that the Quarter House had with the garage around the corner ($20/day in & out all you want - valet). This was a great benefit as parking anywhere else was an expensive challenge. Hats off to this hotel for keeping a great French Quarter ambiance and giving pleasant service.

    The location of this timeshare is ideal. You are 1 block from Canal St., 2 blocks to Bourbon St., and a bit more than that to the Mississippi. So many wonderful restaurants and music halls are just a short walk from Quarter House. Some roads in the Quarter are closed during the day. As you walk along, you hear the most amazing street performers. The staff is one of the best things about the place; they are friendly and very helpful. They also have a small pool in the center courtyard. I would highly recommend this timeshare for everyone. Since parking is next to impossible, I would not recommend renting one. Cabs are easily found and this is an easy city for walking. Plus, you have to try the streetcars. You can take the bus to City Park, where they have a wonderful art museum and a display of Faberge Eggs.

    This might just be my favorite timeshare resort anywhere. I can't think of any place I'd rather spend a week.

    Location, facilities, and amenities are first class. The entire staff is absolutely wonderful -- friendly and helpful.

    We've been back five times since the original review. Can't think of anything that would make me change it.

    I have to comment on our November 2011 visit. We own a 2BR unit for Week 47, normally Thanksgiving week. In 2011, Week 47 was Thanksgiving week on every timeshare calendar except Quarter House's. So, we show up a week early and having just driven 1,100 miles, were faced with the prospect of turning around and going home. No worries! Quarter House had a 2BR lockoff available and simply did a switch for us! It was my mistake but QH turned it into gold!

    We stayed at the Quarter House Resort for the first time from March 19, 2011 until March 26, 2011. The Quarter House is in the heart of the French Quarter and is convenient to anything you would like to do in the French Quarter. There are plenty of restaurants, bars, museums and all within walking distance. We hired a taxi from the airport and did not have any interest in renting a car. It was not needed.

    The unit we stayed in was the 'A' side of a two (2) bedroom lock-off. It was very spacious for the two of us. It was over 800 square feet, a bedroom with comfortable king size bed and private full bath with jacuzzi tub and hair dryer in the bathroom. The unit had a total of two (2) full bathrooms and a washer and dryer in the second bathroom. The living room, dinning room and kitchen were all in one area which was comfortable. There was a sofa sleeper, a TV with DVD and VHS player, a receiver that played music throughout the unit with separate controls in every room. This was a nice feature. The unit also had a balcony on Chartres Street which was large enough for many people. There was a sign that said, LIMIT OF 4, but we invited our neighbors from unit 'B' over to watch the St. Joseph's parade on Saturday night. I have to say, this was awesome to watch a New Orleans parade from a balcony in the French Quarter. We all got lots of beads.

    The unit was clean, nice and modern with a feel of old charm because of the exposed brick walls and old windows. I was advised that the unit would be getting granite countertops in the kitchen and bathrooms as well as flat panel TV's but they were in great condition. It appears the resort stays on top of renovation with gradual and steady renovations instead of massive overhauls.

    Resort sponsored activities: The resort has a FREE continental breakfast with mimosa's and a person playing the piano on Sunday morning. This was followed-up with a walking tour of the French Quarter by a local tour guide. They offer a Monday afternoon cooking class for $5.00 per person with samples of the food made to enjoy. We enjoyed the three courses very much, but the chef, Duke of Cafe Giovanni was very entertaining with lots of information on the area. The resort also offers a FREE Tuesday wine and cheese tasting event with a piano player for that event as well. None of these events were part of a sales presentation, which was very gratifying.

    We did not have any issues with checking in, however, when we asked for an extra hour to checkout to allow our clothes to finishing drying, Shanika was very abrupt and did not initially grant us the one hour extension. The was the first of many encounters with the staff members and the only time that we were not treated well. Every other encounter with the Quarter House staff was pleasant and with immediate gratification.

    The resort has a small hot tub and pool in the courtyard. I saw a couple of different people use the facilities, but it was mostly empty all the time. There is a small fitness center and the front desk will print your boarding passes for you. There is WIFI in every room and is FREE. No additional fees were assessed at check-out.

    The resort and area is geared to adults even though there were some younger guests around. The French Quarter caters to adults mostly in my opinion and I would not want to take children down Bourbon Street to have beers spilled on them or the visual body parts that are not always the most flattering, in my opinion again.

    I bought this timeshare, sight unseen prior to my visit and I am so happy with my purchase. I plan on visiting the resort for the same week next year and just loved the temperature and activities in the area. It is a great resort, great staff with one exception in a great location with an awesome unit.

    The best location in the French Quarter. Safe and convenient to everything. Charmingly appointed and quaint courtyard with pool. The staff are super friendly. The rooms are terrific but on last visit needed a bit of updating. My favorite place in the French Quarter.

    This is a great resort. It would be a 5 star if they had not been renovating a large number of units when we were there in May 2008. The staff are excellent. There is daily maid service and the renovated rooms are very pleasant. We stayed in a one bedroom which was part of a lock off and it had great amenities and style.

    The location is one of the best in New Orleans in the French quarter close to Canal and two blocks from Bourbon St. While the French Quarter survived Katrina very well and is back to normal, take the Katrina bus tour and you can see the extent to which the City was and is still damaged and the efforts to re-build. The food and entertainment are still outstanding.

    Quarter House is in great shape since Katrina - if anyone is worried about it - don't be. Most of the same staff is back, the Quarter is back with wonderful food & drinks! The Quarter House is just as good as ever.

    We have owned at the Quarter House for 8 years. Traded once for Orlando and it was a major disappointment. We also go to the Quarter House when we are on business in New Orleans and also for long weekends. We will never stay anywhere in New Orleans except the Quarter House. The majority of the staff have been there for years and years and are always extremely friendly and helpful. This is probably one of the best timeshares on the market.

    Great location and units are nicely furnished. The location can not be beaten, and the units are quiet (especially shocking since the resort is in the Quarter). The resort is nicely secured (access controlled at night). You can walk to anywhere in the Quarter, and to most other locations: Frenchman's Street, Harrah's, the Aquarium, etc. etc. Can not say enough about this resort. You will not find a better resort in New Orleans or anywhere else for that matter. Stayed there most recently in Jan. 2006, and we plan to return in the Fall of 2006.

    Beautifully decorated unit, friendly and helpful staff, and a great location. The courtyard is a peaceful place to relax, listen to the fountain, and read the paper. We'd definitely stay here again.

    Located in the first block off of Canal Street, this resort wins hands down for best locality to several fine restaurants, just two streets over from Bourbon Street, and 2.5 blocks from the riverwalk where the Aquarium, Harrah's Casino, and the Canal Shoppes awaits you. I was there for seven days and only drove my car once.

    The Quarter House don't have a parking garage, but use one nearby. It costs $15 a day and that's a discount! It was only a block away, but when it's raining, even that's too far. There aren't many amenities or activities located on- site due to so much going around the area.

    I would suggest staying here if you want to be close to everything and don't want to bother with transportation. Otherwise, with a slight inconvenience of no parking garage attached, it can be a problem when it's raining.

    They also charge $.75 to use one washer and dryer located in the laundry room. On Saturday- Monday mornings, continental breakfast is served. Maid service is provided every day as well, which was very nice.

    This resort is located in the perfect location for visiting New Orleans, you will not need a car. It is within walking distance to everything, Bourbon Street, Jackson Square, Riverwalk and Harrah's Casino. You will not get bored visiting New Orleans. Make sure to book reservations early to all famous restaurants in the area, so you can get in. There is entertainment everywhere, great Jazz and Irish Pubs and don't forget Bourbon Street.

    We have been going to New Orleans on vacation now and staying at this resort for over 6 years now, and thinking of adding on more weeks. The Quarter House has all the New Orleans charm of the French Quarter. The staff is always very nice and very helpful.

    A great opportunity came our way last year to purchase a one bedroom unit at The Quarter House, sight unseen. We knew it was a great location, liked everything we read about QH and everyone gave it great reviews. So we took a educated gamble & feel like we hit the jackpot on this one.

    We love the Quarter House, the location is excellent and the staff is very willing to help in any way they can. The Old World decor gives QH character, warmth and beauty of another era with all the modern conveniences. This is what makes it so special. We would highly recommend The Quarter House to anyone.

    We stayed there in March 2003. The rooms were extremely small. We kept tripping over each other just to get dressed. I was jolted in the middle of the night with a loud scream-a huge roach was crawling over a young girl who was with my family. The front desk refused to move us.

    There were wires hanging down from the front of the TV set and the place smelled musty.

    "The best 5 Star Resort in the French Quarters". I have been an owner for 4 years. I've never traded my week at the Quarter House, and never will. I choose to pay for another hotel if I go some place else. Thats how great this place is. The staff is always friendly and helpful. I love it so much I bought a 2 bedroom unit, and plan on bringing more family and friends to New Orleans because of how beautiful the Quarter House is, and how much there is to do, both in and out of the French Quarters. What a wonderful place!

    I love the Quarter House. It's in a great location in the French Quarter. The rooms, hallways and corridors have original interior brick walls - absolutely beautiful. The rooms are spacious and comfortable with tasteful antique furnishings. We've stayed many places in the French Quarter, but this remains our favorite!

    Whenever I trade my week from the Quarter House to another resort, I always feel as though I traded down. The Quarter House is incredible -- the rooms, the staff and the amenities offered are top notch.

    In New Jersey, many people ask me if I go to Mardi Gras. I explain to them that although Mardi Gras is grand, every week night and weekend is a celebration in the Big Easy!
