“Hurricane Issac outstanding care”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2012

Avenue Plaza has been my favorite place to stay on St. Charles, clean, efficient, comfortable with especially nice showers. The staff have always been excellent; efficient and very prompt to attend me. This August my stay was extended through Hurricane Issac, during which the Avenue Plaza lost power but still gave exceptional care to its guests throughout. Flashlights, drinking water, hot coffee and barbequed burgers and franks were made available, with regular updates on the hurricane and accommodations. When the hurricane subsided and power could not be restored they relocated all of their guests (several busloads) to another lighted and comfortable Wyndham resort downtown. I am very grateful that I was at the Avenue Plaza during the hurricane, and very grateful to the wonderful staff who made the discomforts of this so minimal.

Arrived late 0200 after a long flight from Australia. Desk clerk was incredibly helpful with our check in and assisting us getting a meal locally. Good sized hotel room with 2 queen sized beds, very clean, an amazing laundry facility complete with large plasma TV. Daytime concierge a little unhelpful. Nice courtyard and pool area. Fantastic streetcar access from right outside the hotel only 10 minutes to bourbon st by streetcar and only $1.25 per trip. 10 or more cafes and pubs within walking distance most with reasonably priced meals. Blind pelican was good. Also take the streetcar away from city to Oak St. The Maple Bar on Oak has great entertainment on a Tueday. We saw a Grammie award winning big brass band. For breakfast you get good value for money at the streetcar cafe, and if you walk a little further there is a fantastic old style diner that have amazing breakfast and bottomless coffee. You can also walk to a convenience store about 50 meters, a Waldgrens, and a cosy bar 2 doors down that do take food, alcohol, and laundry open 24 hours.
Great value for money hotel close to lots of amenities with easy city access.

The hotel was very comfortable. We arrived really late but the valet for parking was right there waiting. Room was clean and spacious and bathroom was nice. The recommendations for restaurants were good. We experienced no problems and had a pleasant stay.

Just returned home on Friday 10th, 2012. This was a really nice 1 bedroom suite. Very Clean,had all amenities you would want for a great stay. Someone said they didn't have a full size mirror in their suite, we did on the 9th floor. pool was nice, only half size but clean. Hot tub was very Hot, the way they should be, onsite people were very helpful and friendly. Steak house next to Ave. Plaza was very good. Take the bus or walk to a very nice supermarket called Fresh Market for local food shopping, excellant food , fresh breads, anythying you would want plus liquor up stairs. The Zoo was not worth the price, weather was soo Hot and Humid most were hiding in some shade.They also charge extra for the train ride and other activities. WW2 Museum was excellant, spent 7 hours at this , The movie which is $11.00 if your not a member or senior was a spare not expense show. very moving. The swamp tour with the boats with large fans to drive them was very good. Get a single bus pass each day, cheaper and if you loose it your not out a weeks worth of tickets. Cafe DuMond was OK, eat quick or the flys will get the food. French quaters flea market is typical, they pretty much all sell the same cheap goods, made in China. Some local goods like paintings and crafts can be found and bought for a high price. All in All a very interesting place.. watch out for the very large Roaches, they love the hot humid weather.

Room Tip: I have been in a lot of time shares exchanges and this place was better than average, free ice-cream...

Had a few problems with maintenance--kitchen drawer stuck; leg on bathroom drain stopper was broken; and hot water line on kitchen faucet was blocked. However, maintenance engineer corrected problems to our satisfaction. Requested a 2nd wine bottle opener since the one 1st supplied was broken. Concierge area was under construction and for a short time trash and clutter could be seen. Otherwise, we had a pleasant stay--helpful staff, attractive pool area, and relaxing guest room supplied with light refreshments. Use of computers was free.

Great location for bar/ restaurant hopping on St Charles, nice and clean pool, fantastic steak house on site! Fun 24/7 bar next door for karaoke. Loved my stay for my birthday. Walk down to the Blind Pelican for drinks, 15$ taxi to quarter, great shopping on Magazine st.

We stayed at the Avenue Plaza Resort through our Worldmark timeshare.

The hotel was just okay. It met our basic needs - having a place to sleep and a place to shower away all the NOLA humidity. Other than that, the room that we stayed in was out-of-date - worn down furniture, dim lighting, carpet flooring, etc.

However, the location of this place was great! It's located in the Garden District and there's a trolley right outside the hotel. Had we known this, we would've opted out of getting a rental car - which by the way, we'd pay $$ for daily parking at the hotel.

So for those of you looking to travel to NOLA, get the multiple day trolley pass! It's so worth it!

Altogether, I would like to go back to NOLA. I'd only come back to this hotel if I was on a budget.
