We stayed at POFQ in January 2006. So far, it's our favorite moderate resort. Here are some of our photos. (These were all taken before I went digital.)

The stairway from the 3rd floor. I just loved the detail work.


A closeup of some of the detail work.


The pool


Our building - Building 4


Our room (we had a standard room and overlooked the courtyard and could see the parking lot.)


The waterway and boat dock to DTD.


The view from our room.

How cool it appears you are on the second floor on an end room facing the hot tub/laundry room with your end wall as the corridor wall leading to the rooms on the inside courtyard area. When we stayed there in February, we were in the room behind you that faces the inside courtyard. Our bathroom wall is adjacent to that room's bathroom wall.

We will be there in August 08 and I just love all the great reviews and lovely pictures. I'm getting very excited. Do they have elevators? We are staying in a standard room. Do they all have great views? Should I request a particular bldg? With 2 boys 6 & 8 I need to have a good view but accessible to pool, buses, or food court. Any suggestions would be great. Thanks

Love the 360 photos. I've seen them before and always marvelled at how you managed to get them so people-free during daylight hours! Did you need to do anything special to take them, I might have a go at POR next trip.

Thanks for the nice words! Love doing the 360 shots, seems to give a real prospective I Try to shoot around people, and I shoot enough shots that I can stitch them together and sometimes get rid of the people that way. We are going to the CR over the 4th, bet I don't have that kind of luck!!!

The similarity to the actual French Quarter is what is cool. The pic of the "riverwalk" in between the pool and the river reminds me of the riverwalk in NO between Jax's Brewery along the river to the Aquarium and the Riverwalk mall. Have stayed at POFQ and PORx2 and have never noticed that.

Keep the great pics coming! Thanks to all who post!
There is a T.V. in the food court also for the kids.
