“Great place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014

My husband and I went 4 days for our honeymoon. We had a one room suite and it was wonderful, clean, & the staff were amazing and helpful. The bed was very comfortable also the sofa bed no bars sticking into you. Our stay was amazing and would definitely return.

First of all the staff was the best. other then that everything was some what off. The bath room was so small only one person could barley fit. We had a one bed room, nice bed, nice kitchen, but no way could 4 people fit. The pool looks big but the photo is the whole pool, smaller then our pool, we did not use it. The street car was to stop in front of the resort, that was one of the reasons we picked this location, but its not running and you have to take a bus 6 blocks to catch it. Per the door man it will be down for mounts. We made do, but next time we will stay in the French District. So many great resturants, and things to do. We flew in from Chicago and took the train back in a sleeper car, try it its part of the fun.

Room Tip: becuse of the construction ask for a top floor not on the street, looking at the city.

My wife and I what was described as a studio apartment. Adequate for two people and was well appointed for a weeks stay. Staff could not be more helpful, and the valet staff were great for pointing you in the right direction to make your stay very enjoyable. The bathroom was quite small but had the greatest pulsating shower I have ever found. Having visited a number of Wyndham resorts around the USA this one did not disappoint.

Room Tip: Try not to get a room too close to the elevator shafts they can be noisy during the night.

We stayed here for a week in June and were very pleased with our stay. The hotel staff are wonderful , helpful and very friendly! Special thanks to the valet guys who went out of their way to accommodate us, our truck and our motorcycle, which they do not park for you but have to accompany you to the lot each time you want to get it out, which they did always with a smile...the pool area was nice and refreshing and our room was comfortable. We are Wyndham owners and were quite pleased with our first trip and stay in NOLO. This resort is right on the trolley line, but there is construction going on with the track so they provide a bus to ferry you to the trolley further up the line. Easy to navigate, and the valet guys are helpful pointing you on the right direction. Have correct change for the bus..$3 per person for a 24 hr pass!

Green Features: This is a green resort so they provide special recycling bags in the rooms.

My husband and I took the kids for spring break. We stayed in a 1 bedroom--it is just big enough for a couple with two small kids. I cannot imagine sharing the space with teenagers or two additional adults. The bathroom is very small and the shower leaked so badly we had to line the outside of the shower stall with towels every time we took a shower. The hotel kept us well stocked with towels rather than move us.

The hotel was working on the front walk in front of the property so two mornings we woke up to the sounds of jackhammers.

The kitchenette was handy when we needed to reheat leftovers and we were able to do some grocery shopping because of the nice-sized fridge.

The hotel is about a $12 cab ride to Canal Street. The hotel is on the street car line, but for some reason, we were regularly asked to depart the street car after just a few stops and asked board a bus or vice versa during our trips. This was a royal pain with two little kids being that you had to cross St. Charles Avenue to accomplish these transfers. Double check to see if this is still the practice before you choose this as your mode of transportation.

If you don't want to go to far from the hotel to eat, there are plenty of walkable options. There is a huge 24-hour Walgreens two short blocks from the hotel. Also about a 4-block walk to shopping on Magazine street.

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper do not pick the St.Charles side of the street unless of course you get th...

We were given a room in this time share as a gift from friends that were unable to use it this year. We've been to New Orleans several times, but never stayed at this resort or in the Garden District. We had nothing invested and had no idea what to expect. The staff at the Avenue Plaza Resort was charming from the word "go"; kind, patient, polite, and so helpful. I love that fact that they continued to ask if everything was OK or if there was anything we needed. The room/apt. was a bit small but very nicely appointed. We love it when there is a separate bedroom with it's own TV. We had trouble getting the loud air conditioner set at a comfortable temperature. We were either warm or cool. We finally settled on being a little warmer rather than too cool. Also, we found the bathroom to be one of the smallest we've ever had. It was not possible for both of us to be in there at the same time. We had absolutely not problems with the internet. There were three elevators. It seemed as though only two of them were working at one time. They also seemed to be extremely slow and a bit noisy.
The neighborhood has a Walgreens, bars, restaurants is very walkable and right next to the beautiful Garden District with huge, ornate, historic, old homes that will take your breath away! It was a short walk to Magazine St. where there are an abundance of bars, restaurants, clothing, furniture, antique and other unique shops.
Unfortunately, the streetcar tracks are currently under construction so we had to catch a bus to take us to a trolley to get to the French Quarter. It was the reverse coming home. Cost was $3.

Room Tip: The higher up they put you, the quieter your room will be and the nicer the view of the city. They...

We only booked this hotel for one night before boarding a cruise ship at Julia Street terminal. The Avenue Plaza is in the quieter Garden district, although I must admit when we arrived I was a bit concerned as it looked derelict!! I thought for once that Trip advisor had let me down but, as we found out, they are renovating the front of the hotel and there were building works and scaffolding everywhere. Once we were into the hotel itself, we unfortunately arrived just as a hen party was leaving and this did nothing to calm my fears.

Check in was quick and we found our room - it was very nice; however I will say the noise from the air conditioning was unbearable and I had to turn it off all night. Another thing I didn't factor in when booking a suite was that the fridge would also be making noises throughout the night. As you can tell, I don't sleep well if there's a lot of noise!!

We went outside and walked out towards the back of the hotel and all I can say is what a transformation - it was brilliant. There is a garden room where you could get cold drinks in the evening or coffee in the morning, a lovely walled area with swimming pool and jacquzzi, lovely chairs and sun loungers and a beautiful house with a veranda, complete with rocking chair. It totally made up for all the other niggles.

We had the morning in and around the hotel and I must say everything out the front seemed better in the daylight!!

After the cruise we stayed in the French Quarter district and took a bus tour which went past the Avenue Plaza and we saw all the areas like the shopping district which we didn't see as we only had the one night. All in all I think I wouldn't hesitate to stay at the Avenue Plaza again for a longer period and use the trams to get about.
