    How was your stay in 508 for week 51? Was it a large unit? I bet that’s a fun time to visit with it being Christmas

    It was not bad but the bed arrangement info in Interval is incorrect. It shows a King and a Queen in the second bedroom but there is only one King. The sleeping capacity ends up being accurate because there are two sofa sleepers in the living room instead of the listed one. It is not like QH changed the arrangement and did not update Interval because there is not enough room in either bedroom to have a second bed as a Queen. This arrangement ends up not being ideal for us since we put the kids down fairly early and having to use the living room means there are kids in each of the three sleeping areas and no place to chill without bothering the kids. In a lock-off where there are two separate living rooms I can keep one of them to myself.

    The rant for our needs aside, the room is pretty nice. The entrance opens to the kitchen and unlike some of the rooms it is clearly separated from the living room. It is not large, but no need to spend much time in it. From there there are a few steps up, then you can go upstairs to the two bedrooms or a few steps down to the living room. It is nice to have a separate bathroom downstairs while still having two dedicated bathrooms upstairs in the bedrooms.

    Heading upstairs is a decent amount of stairs that u-turn half way up. The Master has a skylight and no windows. It was a nice surprise to see that the skylight had a motor to open it up but a big disappointment to find that it did not work. The motor hummed but never moved. The second bedroom had windows.

    All three bathrooms had Jacuzzi brand jetted bathtubs.

    As usual I forgot to take pictures.

    We have never stayed there. But it is a 2 Bedroom 2 Bathroom 905 square feet with Saturday check in. Hope this helps.

    Has anyone stayed in Unit 432B at The Quarter House? It is Saturday check in and the small one bedroom side of a 1 bedroom lock off. Is this a nice room? With windows I hope? Or at least sky lights...
    Thanks!

    I would make a quick call to the front desk and ask. I have the full 432AB as 2BR 3Bath with two Queens and two sofa sleepers but I do not know if that is accurate. It "should" have windows on both sides given where the unit is located.

    We just got an exchange into 507B. Can anyone share any information they know on this unit? Interval has it listed as a studio, but I thought they are all at least one bedroom?

    507 is literally the only "efficiency lockoff" unit they have. So yes, I believe 507B is the one & only studio.

    507A and 507B are both studios. The other 121 possible unit numbers have at least a private bedroom even though some are very small.

    I guess all this shows what a complex facility is Quarter House. You've been working on a QH database for how long now? And we're still guessing about the characteristics of some units.

    I for one would be happy to try to fill in some of your blanks next visit to N.O. QH has been very willing to show a unit as long as it is not occupied.

    It’s definitely no cookie cutter facility, with the maze of hallways.

    We've owned a week in Unit 427 for ten years and I still make wrong turns trying to get to the elevator.

    QH has 5 floors. Don't know much about 504, except it's a one-bedroom with a full fridge but no washer/dryer.

    You can call the front desk & they'll happily give you more details, including square footage.

    (Oh, and please share any info you may get from them). :)

    Based on 232B, I’d make the assumption that it is the same size unit. If it is, 232B does not have any windows. It is located at the very end of the hall at the opposite end of the building. I believe it’s about 500 square feet of space.

    Thought I would just share some quick info I learned about 507B. It is 519 sq. feet. I will provide more after our trip!

    Although I own at QH, I'm going thru RCI for an upcoming trip as I have RCI points to burn. I'm apparently assigned 1-bedroom room 517 by RCI, but I'm not sure if that is set in stone or not. Anybody have thoughts on this unit? I'm told it has a washer/dryer & faces a courtyard.

    Separately, it looks like I'll be charged $20 a day "resort fee", which is a bummer. Anyone know if I have to pay for the full 7 day interval ($140), even though I'm only staying for 4 days?

    Resort fee of $20 at Quarter House? That's a new one on me!

    QH has an arrangement with a parking garage up Iberville and the daily rate is $20/day. Might that be it?

    Nope, parking is a separate charge. The $20/day is right on the RCI website. I just don't how how they calculate it (for the whole interval vs. days you'll be occupying it)

    I'm assuming II does this as well, but don't know for sure.

    Well, I'm back & might as well answer my own questions.

    517 is nice, but the 'courtyard' view is of the smaller courtyard & you're on the fifth floor so you don't really see anything down below. The bedroom is on the interior (windowless) & was very quiet.

    The $20/day RCI resort fee is just for the days you actually occupy the room, so we paid $80.

    I stayed in 503 over Labor Day weekend. It is close to the elevator but we did not hear much if any noise from either other guests or noise on the street. Reason being is that you walk in to the open kitchen with square dinning table with four chairs. There are two doors from the kitchen, one to the bathroom and one to the living room. Once you walk in to the living room, there are two couches that convert into beds on opposite sides of the walls with a coffee table. It is a decent size room. There is also another door to the bathroom which was annoying because you were always hitting one door with the other, we tried to lock one but since this is a one bathroom unit, sometimes there was a need to get dressed in the kitchen area if there was company in the living room. There is a separate bedroom with a sloped ceiling and a queen size bed. It was cute but it was tight for even short people to maneuver around the room. There was only one window in the unit that faced Chartres Street that afforded a little light towards the living area. Overall, I would not prefer to stay in this room ever again.

    I am also an Quarter House owner and this was an exchange through RCI. When I checked out and received the bill, I politely mentioned that I was an owner and the lady working the counter, removed the newly added resort fee for exchange visitors. I was happy that I did not have to pay anything for my stay there except the exchange fee.

    Hey, thanks for the tip! I just called to inquire about this & they refunded me the $80.
