Port Orleans Resort French Quarter

thumbsup.gif (7680 bytes) INTERCOT Favorite

French Quarter buildings

Without a doubt, our favorite moderately priced resort, themed after the French Quarter in New Orleans. This resort houses 1,008 rooms in 7 colorful three-story buildings adorned with wrought iron railings and tin roofs. The Delta City is alive at this charming resort.

The Mint

Guests arrive at Port Orleans Square, which houses the resort's main building. Styled after a turn of the century mint, with check-in windows styled after those used by bank tellers, The Mint is where guests will find the front desk, food court, gift shop, and arcade.  This hotel has a great pool, "Doubloon Lagoon," surrounded by a sea serpent water slide being commanded by King Neptune. The combination of detail, service, value and comfort make this resort outstanding. Its smaller footprint provides a more intimate feel than its other moderate counterparts on property.

The Port Orleans Riverside and French Quarter are "sister resorts." This means that they share recreational facility access and guests may utilize the swimming pools at either resort. Each resort has its own main building, food court, gift shop, and front desk, but only Port Orleans Riverside has a full service restaurant.
