“Nice find in a crazy city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

Selecting a hotel without knowing the area seemed rather overwhelming. We decided to try this place because the price was right and we were quite pleasantly surprised. The desk staff was very pleasant and the valet was professional. Our room was very clean and the beds very comfortable. The bathroom was surprisingly nice as well. We didn't use the kitchenette much but with nice having a big sink. We did use the pool and it was very nice. Other guests were quite friendly also. It is a bit off the beaten path but with the trolley directly out front, it was easy getting to burbon street and the surrounding activities. The fitness center was outstanding! One negative was the noise from the hallway was very noticeable. YEs, it is a timeshare but I was happy to have a nice room. I highly recommend this hotel!

Room Tip: We had a room on the 12th floor and it worked well for us.

This is not a resort. It is a hotel converted to a Timeshare. We are well aware of that as we have had our Timeshare for 26 years. This was a last minute exchange to use up some Timeshare value that would have been expiring later this year. We had a great time and all the good things you read in the other reviews are correct. We would have rated this facility 5 stars except for the proliferation of smoking areas. EVERYTHING outside is fair game for smokers. That second floor terrace balcony folks rave about? Take your nose clip because you'll find smokers. Going to the pool with or without kids? Don't worry, you'll get your day's allowance of second hand smoke!

Come on Wyndham!!! This is 2013. The rest of the world does not cater to smokers anymore. Give them a small corner of the courtyard and save the majority of your visitors the pain of putting up with the stinking smoke!

The area and convenience to public transport are terrific. We loved our visit to New Orleans except for the stinking smoke when we arrived back at the Avenue Plaza!!!

Room Tip: We asked for a room away from the elevators but didn't get it. Unless you are a light sleeper it...

The location was great. The streetcar stops right out front, and a Hop-on/ Hop-off Bus Tour stop is just 2 blocks away.
The place itself is very clean, and very up to date. Great shower and the bed was very comfortable. Laundry room on-site and wireless internet and kitchenette in the room. We didn't use the pool area, but we had a clear view from our room and it appeared beautiful. 2nd floor balcony is a good shady area, a nice place to just sit and read. We were thrilled with our choice.
The staff, especially the housekeepers and the valets, were extreemely good at their jobs. Very helpful and eager to do so. We are not picky people, but we do expect a clean, safe place to call "home" while on vacation.
We will definately stay here if we ever go back to NO. Can't go wrong choosing this place.

We stayed here for a week through RCI in March 2013. We very much enjoyed our stay in a studio with kitchen. We overlooked the pool area and Ashley House.

We took a taxi from the airport and having the Street Car right outside the front door was our mode of transport for most of the week. There were a number of restaurants within walking distance and the hotel was great at making diner suggestions and even gave us discounts and free dessert coupons.

We rented a car for the last day and drove out to the 9th ward as well as went to a couple plantation homes and toured a rum factory. Drove to the airport and dropped the car off on the day we left so worked perfectly.

We went on 2 "Free Tours by Foot" and you pay what you think the tour is worth, Unfortunately the one we really wanted to go on was cancelled so we had to go with another company. Well worth doing these tours. We also went on the Tastebud Tour and had a great time. We got to sample some of foods that New Orleans is famous for. Well worth the cost of the tour.

We had an issue with our air conditioning and they were there to fix it immediately so we were very happy with everything!

Avenue Plaza is right on St Charles trolley line so convenient to all the sites and resturants. Great staff will hook you up with variety of tours, recommend Cajun Encounters city/cemetary tour!
No need for rental car, take the airport shuttle right to hotel.
Nice rooms with kitchen, pool, close to resturants on trolley line.
Good views from higher floors!

This was my first visit to New Orleans and I wasn’t sure what to expect with regards to my accommodations. The Wyndham Avenue Plaza is a timeshare that also rents to anyone as long as there is availability.

To my pleasant surprise, my stay at the Wyndham exceeded my expectations. The staff was extremely friendly and eager to help. Our room was spacious with two queen size beds and very clean. The bathroom was recently remodeled in 2011, and somewhat on the small size with a stall shower instead of a bath/shower combination. The beds were very comfortable with plenty of pillows if needed.

On our final day, the hotel provided cooked crawfish to their guests, which was delicious . We did not receive any high pressure sales pitches to purchase a timeshare. They offered, and we declined. The one nice amenity we received as paying guests was hotel staff came daily and changed our towels and emptied our trash. This is not customary with their regular timeshare guests.

All in all, we had a fabulous time in New Orleans and would highly recommend the Wyndham Avenue Plaza to all. It is two miles from Bourbon Street, and there is a trolley right outside the hotel to take you downtown. Both trolley service and cabs are very reasonable throughout the city.

Everything about my stay was excellent. Having valet parking was well worth the daily $12 charge. Riding the trolley system is fantastic..$3 full day (until 4 a.m.) is a bargain. Room was deluxe..even the amenities of soap, shampoo, etc were top quality.
