    I stayed at POFQ in January and I'll be staying at POR in May. So I'll finally be able to compare the two. I did fall in love with FQ when I was there.

    Riverside has always been the choice for my family. We have 3 children and Riverside had all the ammenities you'd expect for a family. We always stayed in the Mansions (Mangolia Bend mostly) which is close to the bridge to the pool and close to a bus stop.
    From what I've heard, FQ is good for adults and is certainly much smaller. But the winding trails, onsite restuarant, beautiful landscaping of Riverside "had me at hello".

    My vote is for FQ. The pool is just cool. Also, it was nice only having one bus stop and having a seat on that bus.

    I can't vote, as I haven't been to either resort. But the main question is whether the rooms are nicer in one hotel or the other, since you can travel freely between the two resorts and use the restaurant,pool, etc. I am also thinking of staying there in Dec for 10 days so any opinions to the actual rooms would be great!

    We loved POFQ for our honeymoon as it was quiet and v romantic. Riverside is probably better if you are a family.

    The rooms in French Quarter and the Magnolia Bend sections of Riverside are very similar in style. The Alligator Bayou section of Riverside is furnished differently. All the rooms have the same basic furniture - 2 double beds, bench, mini-fridge, small table & 2 chairs, nightstand, and TV armoire with drawers. Some of the Alligator Bayou rooms have a trundle bed (small flat bed with thin mattress that rolls under one of the others, suitable for a child) so they can sleep 5 people.
    French Quarter and the Magnolia Bend mansions are three stories with elevators; Alligator Bayou buildings are 2 stories with no elevators.

    Here is a room in French Quarter:


    This is a Magnolia Bend room (in Parterre Place building):


    and this is one in Alligator Bayou:


    Hope this helps!
