My stay here started with a ride from the airport on Disney's Magical Express, I was fortunate to be the first hotel drop off. When I got off the bus I was given beads, it must be Mardi Gras everyday! I had no wait to check in.
The only other resort I have stayed at in Disney World was All-Star Sports and this was a big improvement. The resort had a much nicer setting, bigger rooms, a nicer pool area. Even though the resort has a similar motel like structure, you never felt like you were at a motel.
The rooms had good lighting (and I like a bright room), were tastefully decorated to the theme of the French Quarter. The rooms had been refirbished in 2010-2011 (or something like that) and I was worried that the new queen size beds might make the rooms feel smaller, but there was plenty of room for my friend and I. I think a 3rd person would easily be accomodated there, and a 4th would be fine depending on the relationship of the travelers. The new queen size beds were comfortable too.
The room had a table and chairs, nightstand, 3 dressers drawers, a refrigerator, flat screen TV, double sink in the bathroom, a typical hotel hairdryer and a small safe. There was no formal closet, but a clothes bar in the bathroom with a shelf.
The resort itself is the smallest of the moderate resorts and I found it was a very easy resort to get around and there really is no bad location. We weren't close to anything, but then again, nothing was far away either. Everything was under a 5 minute walk from our room (in building 2 - 2221).
I thought the location of the resort was MUCH better then the All-Star Resorts. It was was much closer to everything (except that Animal Kingdom). Whether we drove or took Disney Transportation, it was never a long drive.
Overall, I thought French Quarter was a great resort, I would recommend it to anyone. For couples it has a more intimate feel then some of the larger resorts. For the price it has a good location (you can't compete with the monorail resorts or the Epcot resorts), a great setting, great ammenities and was a managable size.
