My daughter and I spend a weekend here while job hunting, school interviewing and house hunting. This was the perfect home base for all of our explorations. We have made many many trips to New Orleans but this was our 1st time staying outside of the Quarter. It was wonderful! The staff was amazing, so very nice. The rooms were spacious and well appointed, the beds very comfortable and everything upgraded and modern.
Having the streetcar stop right out front made everything so easy.
Would recommend this to anyone visiting this amazing city!!

we stayed here for about 4 days with our timeshare exchange. the staff were friendly and helpful and the place was clean(newly renovated bathroom too). the bed was comfortable and the suite was spacious..but the best part of our stay was the location! it was right where the st charles streetcar stops in the garden district so we didnt have to drive around exploring NOLA (parking can be hard to find downtown unless to opt for pay parking).. there's a walgreens nearby and some good local restaurants like the voodoo barbecue as well as some fastfood places like kfc. it also has a pool area (we didnt get to hang out here because we were out exploring the city) and a fabulous roofdeck with a view of the city skyline!

We stayed at the Wyndham Avenue Plaza the week of Memorial Day through our timeshare. The hotel was in a nice location. Though we were far from downtown, we could catch the trolley to downtown, which the stop happened to be just across the street. This was very convenient and we could be downtown in a few minutes.

The amenities of this resort were very nice. There was a deck in front of the hotel where we could sit, drink a cooler or beer or smoke while feeling the breeze and watching people and cars go by. There was also a sun roof where we could just rest and look over the city. The fitness center was very nicely equipped. It was like my YMCA was picked up and dropped in the hotel; way better than most hotels and other resorts I've been to so far. We didn't get to see the pool as it was down for renovating.

I definitely recommend this resort. It has everything you need while on vacation. Plenty of restaurants, bars and stores within walking distance. The hotel is in the Garden District, which turned out to be a very nice location. We had a good and if in NOLA, we will be back.

Tips: There is a Wal-Mart about 5-6 blocks away from the resort, where, of course, you can get affordable snacks, food and drinks. Just ask for directions, driving it's only 5 minutes away if that. There is a laundry room in the resort that guest can use for free where you can leave for home with clean clothes.

We were very pleased with the Avenue Plaza. We stayed 6 nights during the second weekend of Jazz Fest 2012 (May 2-8). The location was great and so easy to take the St. Charles street car. A plus for Jazz Fest attendees was that the city bus stopped right across from the hotel and took you right (with many stops, but that was a great way to see the city) to the fairgrounds where JF takes place. We stayed in a 1 bedroom and it was really nice, recently redone and clean. The kitchenette had everything you could possible need and had granite countertops, stainless appliances and some had looked like they had never been used! It was a bit pricey, but I guess that is just a product of coming during a very busy time. The reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is that the bathrooms are VERY small, like another reviewer said, no fan in bathrooms, and at the time we were there the pool/back patio area was closed because they were renovating. I think they could have done this during the winter vs. May, when the weather can be pretty HOT. I also would have appreciated some kind of notification when I made the reservation. I am not sure it would have made a difference, but I would have appreciated knowing.

Room Tip: We chose a room that did not face St. Charles in case the streetcars were loud. I am not sure you e...

We stayed here on a deal through our in-laws time share. Having stayed in other time share resorts in SF, Kona, LV, Scottsdale, Orlando, and Whistler, BC, I would have to rate this as the best we have stayed in thus far. Great location, room, and amenities. Our only knock on the place was not having a fan in the bathroom.  We stayed in the studio with a king bed...such a comfy bed, by the way.  If we come back to NOLA we'll stay here again.

Loved our 4 night stay here! Room was clean and comfortable. Staff was courteous and accommodating. The Garden District is a lovely oasis outside of the frenzy of the French Quarter. Beautiful neighborhood right on the trolley line and access to everywhere. Would absolutely recommend to others and stay here again!
