Just Returned from French Quarter

Unread post by farrellmom » December 29th, 2013, 7:53 am

Was at French Quarter from 12/17 until 12/22 with my husband and teenage son, it was great. We paid for a standard room but was treated to a free upgrade to a third floor river view in building 6. It was very tranquil. At night you could hear the clip clop of the horse drawn buggy on the walkway.
The hotel staff was great and check in lasted maybe five minutes. Our room was very clean and the beds were extremely comfortable. We did experience two issues with bus transportation. One night we waited about half an hour for a bus to the Magic Kingdom. When it still didn't show, we had to take a bus to Epcot and a monorail to Magic Kingdom in order to make our reservations. Another night we caught a bus back to French quarter from Epcot. The bus stop was clearly marked and the bus said French Quarter on the front of it. The bus driver proceeded to bring us to Blizzard Beach at 9:00 at night when the park was closed! Everyone on the bus tried to tell him where he was supposed to be headed. Not once did he apologize or address everybody on the bus to tell us what was going on. Then he was heard on the radio saying he was going to bring us to Coronado Springs. We wound up sitting at a traffice light for five minutes while he talked on the radio with "dispatch". It was the ride from hell. We didn't know where he was bringing us. We arrived at our hotel approximately 45 minutes after leaving Epcot. But aside from the transportation issues, we had a great time at the French Quarter. We would definately stay here again.
