Port Orleans French Quarter Lobby opens after refurbishment

Unread post by The Sassagoula Sentinel » July 12th, 2013, 4:59 am

As I indicated last week, the Port Orleans French Quarter lobby has now re-opened for guest use after its refurbishment. The plan was to transition services back today (Friday) and be fully open by Monday, but it looks as if the work is pretty much complete now.

It looks very nice, with a fabulous new patterned tiled floor which looks perfectly in keeping with rest of the room. The desks are now dark wood with accented highlight panels along the upper edge in the new two-person 'pod' style so CMs can come out to interact with guests. The effect is more of a subtle change than the recent Riverside update, as the French Quarter desks were already dark wood.

The lovely backdrop behind the main desk area remains, as do the paintings, but on the sad side, the "When the Saints..." music notes are gone. :( There's also new rug/carpeting and sofas in the TV area, and new golden queue stanchions.

Here are a first few camera-phone photos of the new Lobby to be going on with:
