“The staff is very friendly and accommodating.”  I heard this type of comment concerning the staff on more than one occasion in different areas of the resort; the café, Jambalaya, and of the staff who catered our breakfast, lunch and dinner.“The Pheasant Run Resort has character.”  The participants love Bourbon Street, the Atrium, the New Orleans ballroom and the resort in general.  It was not the Westin and that was good.
As I shared with you prior to the conference I had concerns about the resort being dated and in need of some investment.  Despite my concerns I chose to hold the conference at Pheasant Run because of the people who worked there. I was impressed during my initial visit with Karen Horn that everyone and I mean everyone who worked there took the initiative to say HI to you or you greeted them. I visited the resort unannounced twice before signing the contract to see if that day was a dog and pony show and to my pleasant surprise your staff never once failed to make my visit pleasant and satisfying. Kudos to your staff. I would recommend Pheasant Run to anyone at McDonald’s who is looking for a place to hold a conference, a meeting or simply a place to get away."
