    I have been working on a list of units at The Quarter House in New Orleans. Every room is unique so it is difficult to determine the room type. I would like more detail like square footage of each unit but for now this is what I have.

    Quarter House - Phases 1-5, 7 - 69 Units
    Quarter House I - Phases 6 & 8 - 42 Units

    Units by type:

    One Bedroom - 48
    One Bedroom Deluxe - 10
    Two Bedroom - 7
    Efficiency Lockoff - 1
    Two Bedroom (larger deluxe?) - 27
    Two Bedroom Lockoff - 12
    Penthouse - 6

    The only thing I am not 100% certain on is the two types on non-lockoff 2BR's. There are 2BR's with one bathroom and 2BR's with 2 bathrooms. The suite types on their website show these as 2BR and 2BR Deluxe but these names are not specified on the HOA budgets so it is very possible that some of my 27 "larger" units only have 1 bathroom. I categorized them based on maintenance fee amount. The fee amounts seem to be very consistent in relation to the type and size of the units.

    It is interesting that there is a single unit that is an "Efficiency Lockoff". I had been fairly certain that QH had no studios but this is a small lockoff type splits into two studios.

    The 2BR lockoffs and the penthouses are probably around the same size in total. Five penthouses are on the 5th floor and presumably extend into the attic as a second floor while one Penthouse is located on the 3rd floor.

    The reason some units are not listed on the unit location diagram is because it is only phases 1-7. If you don't see a unit on that diagram then it is likely part of phase 8.

    If you need info on a specific unit number shoot me a PM.

    I know this is an older post, but thanks for the info. We own 2 weeks at the Quarter House - a 1BR deluxe and a penthouse. The penthouse, #516 is the only unit in the resort with a full kitchen (includes an oven). I haven't seen 2 units that are exactly the same. That's one of the many things that make it delightfully unique.

    Also unit 118, “The RiverBoat” room, on the ground floor has an oven from what I remember and the unit pictures I took back in late March of 2005 (not sure if it still has one now)

    Actually many units have a full kitchen including an oven. The QH has also been gradually updating some of the "partial" kitchens with ovens. I own several units and some of them have ovens. The only way to know for sure is to call because it is not by any specific unit type.

    I found out recently that unit 232, which is a 2BR lock-off, has 3 bathrooms. It has 2 baths in the larger half and one in the smaller half. I was pretty sure that only the Penthouse suites had three bathrooms but 232 is at least one exception.

    I also found out that 418, which has the maintenance fee of a 2BR deluxe and is almost 1,000 sq ft, apparently only has one bath but I need to verify it with a second source.

    This is great information. It's good to know that the Quarter House continues to update the units. I believe our penthouse unit (516) only has 2 bathrooms (one downstairs and the other off the master bedroom upstairs.) We haven't stayed in it yet but look forward to in 2015.

    The QH does quite a bit of updating every year. They do a great job.

    I thought all six penthouses had 3 baths but I do have unit 516 as having 2 baths in my database. It's crazy how much the units vary.

    When you exchange in with Interval International, do you get the room that is on the confirmation?

    I believe it is 1BR Deluxe. It probably sleeps 6. It should be larger than the smaller 1BR units. It is on the 5th floor. It has a higher maintenance fee than the other 1BR deluxe units but this probably has to do with it being a Phase 7 unit rather than size. I do not have any details on windows. If you occupy it please update us on any additional details.

    If you call QH and ask for Sheneka she can fill you in on the specific details.

    I am pretty sure that you do. There have been threads in the past where the exchanger received the same unit number. Obviously any resort has the right to swap the units but they are supposed to hold true to the details on the certificate. That said, I think QH keeps it straightforward and never swaps units unless something is inoperable.

    I am supposed to be downsizing my portfolio but I just picked up another 2BR at the QH. It was a good deal so I couldn't resist. Now back to trying to get some sold...

    We just received an Interval confirmation for unit 216, which is described on the confirmation as being a two bedroom with one bath. Can anyone tell me more about this particular unit?

    The reservation is for a week starting March 25, which is Good Friday. Are there any particular plusses or minuses for being in New Orleans over Easter weekend?

    Chris Owens Easter Parade – This is an annual Easter parade. The parade snakes through the French Quarter in colorful floats, and included marching bands, and the St. Charles St Car band. We were on Bourbon St (in 2005) catching beads and necklaces they threw from the floats. Both sides of the street were completely packed with people. Haven't been to Mardi Gras but I can now imagine it must be one heck of a crowded celebration just based on what I saw during the Easter parade.

    Lots of vendors selling things at that time as well in and around Jackson Square (more than usual I would guess). For example the following was a neat set of cloth prints? that I saw during parade day.

    I don't have very much on 216. It was part of phase 5. The sq ft should be decent. The suite name is Chateau Chartres. Can you give me some additional details from your exchange certificate? Is there an oven or a washer/dryer?

    Some single bathroom units are handicap accessible and only have a shower with no tub. Not sure if 216 is like that but I know 318 & 418 are like this and probably 218.

    The confirmation just says it's 2 bedrooms and one bath. An Interval rep (who called to say we had gotten the confirmation) said in a voice mail message that it included a kitchen. I'm not sure whether it includes a washer/dryer.

    Thanks for all the great information. Do you (or anyone) have any info on room 202? Good/bad/average? I've heard conflicting info on whether or not it has a kitchen. Thank you!

    All the units have a fully equipped kitchen so it definitely has a kitchen. Some have an oven but most do not. I believe that all have at least burners, a microwave, a fridge, and stocked with the standard. II classifies a full size kitchen that is missing an oven as a "limited kitchen". So when you see a QH unit on II showing the full "K" it means it should have an oven and this should be reflected in the details.

    Unit 202 is small, near an elevator, and likely noisy.

    Coincidentally I just exchanged into 322AB adding another LO unit to my same owned week 51. I just want to confirm the II details some of which I know are incorrect like they only show one fridge. The Beds are listed as Queens in both rooms. Do you know the sq ft?

    Thanks :)

    It’s a 2 BR/ Lock off, and its 987 square feet. I can confirm that there is a fridge on both sides of A and B and the beds are Queen Size. Both bedrooms have the exposed brick wall and I love the location as you walk down the long hallway on 3 then around the corner and down the steps, this is where you pass thru and can see down to the garden area of QH… I love how quiet this unit is…
