I really don't like anything about Alligator Bayou so I started looking at POFQ. It looks really nice as well, although not as romantic looking as POR. The trip is just my hubby and me. Another thing that has me torn now is what I'm reading about the discounts. I keep seeing that discounts for POFQ are less then for POR. We are hoping to take advantage of the bounceback offer when we go in Sept. Does anyone know if POFQ is also the same discount on the bounceback?
I was able to get the bb for POFQ for stays in May and October. I think it might not have been quite as much, but am not sure. I was thrilled to get any room only discount at POFQ!! I have the same problem as you with POR and the AB section. I really love POFQ because of the small size. POR is huge!! Good luck with your decision!!

That's what I'm looking for a room only discount. But yea I'm very anxious about the AB section. Not a fan.

Ok I've made up my mind. I'm going with POR. This is truly where I want I just have to keep my fingers crossed that my request will be granted. I have placed it on the reservation, I guess I will call or fax a few days before the trip. The pics of AB on that Andre's website weren't that bad. It's mostly the room decor that I don't like but oh well. I'll send out positive vibes.

From the sound of it, and looking at current discounts, it seems that while POR usually has 25% off rooms, POFQ only has 5% off. But comparing the prices of like a garden view room at POFQ and a royal guest room garden view at POR, you're not saving more than a $100 or so of I did the math right.
