The problem at the quarter house is the all night bar next door and the hookers on the corner


Be back at the resort before midnight and you will probably be fine

My goal is to be back in by 6pm each night when I'm there by myself…I figure I can grab food at lunch to eat at dinner and then I'm good to go…

thanks Ron

Go have fun, don't act like you are alone! Stand tall and confident and most of all don't listen to Ron, he is telling bogey man stories!

Actually, I think Ron was giving an honest "heads up" piece of advice.

And 'all-night' bar encourages drunks appearing for MORE drinking the later it gets in the night as other bars close their doors.

As for the "ladies working the evening corner" ... the ladies (if they are ladies and not some cross dressing men) might not be a BIG issue ... but the later at night it gets, their patrons might mistake a non-player as interested in providing a service.

NOLA sells FUN to the world but does have a very dark side. If you are out and about for music or dining later than 9PM... consider taking a cab directly from the from door of one place to the next (like the timeshare resort) and drink very little.

No leg pulling Denise

I had to step over guys sleeping on the sidewalk in front of the bar next door and a young lady offered to rock my world.

I like the property a lot but I won't go there with my wife again

So you WOULD go there again Ron? Just not with your wife?

Go to a hardware store and get a pepper spray. Learn how to use it (spray some trees out back!). Keep it in your hand when you're near the dark and dirty places.

Wife and I will be at QH Thanksgiving Week. Been going there for years and haven't had any problems. Don't expect any this year.

The 100 block of Rue Chartres is colorful, to say the least.

French Quarter can be.....shall we say....a bit seedy at times. Go. Have fun, but be aware of your surroundings and don't be out by yourself late. A 10 p.m. curfew wouldn't be unreasonable.

Ron,

Is there a good safe place I can order some food and stay in for dinner when I'm there by myself?

Daisy Dukes restaurant is right next door. Open 24 hours. Decent affordable breakfast and darn good BBQ wings. We always order wings to have on hand for late night snacks. But LOTS of other good places in the area.

Daisy Dukes right next door

I don't want to overstate the problems. I never thought I was in danger. But my wife didn't much like it At night

Day time we walked everywhere

Ron, Thank you I appreciate the help… I think I will order some extra food at lunch times and bring back to the QH for dinner...

Ron,

There are dozens of places within four or five blocks -- too many to list.

Might I suggest that dinner time is not high risk? You will not have a problem coming home from dinner.

I don't look at drunks or bums lying in the street as being high risk either. If they are lying in the street, it's because they can't get up or need the sleep.

I am not concerned about homeless or prostitutes. ..generally they will leave you alone if you leave them alone. I would be more concerned about biker bars, drug pushers, and evidence of regular street fighting and or gang activities. .

Most of this thread is about bums, drunks, and hookers so I addressed those.

The 100 block of Rue Chartres won't work for bikers -- there no place to park. I've never seen pushers, street fights, or gang activities in the area either. Maybe someone else has. Maybe I don't stay out late enough.

The 100 block of Rue Chartres, where Quarter House is located, is pretty tame as far what happens in the street or on the sidewalk. Quarter House, Sneaky Pete's, Evelyn's, The Jimani, Daisy Duke's, Jimmy J's, the pizza joint, the adult toy store in the block won't tolerate activities that take away from their business.

I'm not about to say there is no crime in the French Quarter. I will say that the "entertainment section" of the French Quarter, especially the first few blocks of Bourbon Street off Canal, is one of the most heavily-policed areas in the country.

Don't let negative fantasies keep you from staying at Quarter House.

Then it must have cleaned up a LOT since I lived there in the late 90s. Just two blocks from Bourbon Street, if you visit a convenience store, you have to order what you want across bulletproof glass from outside the building, and the clerk collects your money and delivers your goods via one of those sliding bank box type setups. At least it was like that in the late 90s.

A male in my early thirties, I wasn't comfortable walking any streets at night except Bourbon itself and Canal. At least on Bourbon all you got was those "Bet I can tell you where you got yo shoes" imps.
