A quick checkin from POFQ!

It is lovely here right now. The staff is attentive and aer going out of there way to make our stay magical. The buses are okay but going to every stop in POR does add on about 10 minutes to the ride.

The grounds are spotless, everything is washed in the overnight. The pool area is well staffed, the lifeguards do not take their eyes off the pool and a good thing. There are some unsupervised youngsters running around and the staff is vigilant in enforcing safety rules.

The doormen are wonderful, especially with the children. My DGD is enchanted, looking forward to each time we come back. Wishing coins are given out as well as hidden around the lobby. She is having a ball!

The Holiday music is fun here too. You can hear it as you approach the center area, making the season seem so close .

Our room is clean and our Mousekeeper has been having fun with Kady's animals. They were swinging from a hammock one day and we have seen other windows decorated with stuffed toys peeking out from towel swings.

It is starting to get busy now, the lobby was full of guests checking in this afternoon so I expect that the Holiday is beginning.

DD and DSIL have stopped into Scat Cats for an evening cocktail and enjoyed the entertainment. Dyson Elliot is as entertaining as always.

If anyone has questions about dining at Boatwrights let me assure you that we had a great meal there. The food was good, the service stellar and the atmosphere was fun. A short boat ride to a good meal and an excellent excuse to tour POR.

We never went to POR going to a park and only went there first one time coming back from DHS.

POFQ offers high-speed internet hookup in EACH room, right? For $10 a day, cord included in room? Just checking...I've seen people post from there, and I've seen internet access included on some amenities lists, but its strangely absent on other lists. Just something I'm worried about, since my upcoming trip there I'll be solo for half of it and I want to be sure I can get on the net.

Yes, $9.95 per 24 hour period (i.e. the connection runs for exactly 24 hours from the moment you first log on and accept the charge, not just from midnight to midnight of one day). A standard ethernet cable is provided in the room, but it is fairly short and will really only allow you to use your computer on the tabletop.

The POFQ pool was completely closed for refurbishment for about a month early last year, but I'm not sure what you're asking about the slide at the moment though...?

Can somebody tell me if the coffee makers take cone or basket filters? I know there are pods in the room but DH will like his own coffee. TIA, Kim
