We stayed here the weekend of the Rock and Roll Marathon. We picked this hotel because it was right on the race course. It was our first visit to New Orleans and we loved staying in the Garden District. It was so convenient to be able to take the streetcar down to the French Quarter or uptown. We were very glad we decided not to rent a car. It was nice to sleep away from the hustle and bustle of the French Quarter but still be close enough to get there quickly. The rooms were very comfortable and clean. We would definitely stay here again.

We’re so glad you enjoyed your stay with us during the Rock and Roll Marathon. Our location is definitely in a great location for our guests. The streetcar seems to be the most popular form of transportation to the French Quarter. We look forward to your next visit.

Everything was pretty good! I was concerned about the location, but it actually worked out really well. It is a few short blocks from the Garden District and a pleasant Trolley ride to FQ. I would recommend this location over being too close to FQ because at some point you'll want to escape it.

Check-in was easy and the staff behind the desk were all very nice. The room was what we expected, clean and comfortable. Most of the other staff were friendly, I was surprised to see some on their cell phones, too busy to say hello........

When I checked in I asked not to be courted by the Timeshare salesmen, they did reach out to us but did make themselves a nuisance like other properties. Thank you!

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the back or you will hear the trolley outside.

Let me star off my review by saying this was the best trip my husband and I have taken in a long time. We have been all over with our timeshare but out of the US cities we have had the pleasure of visiting...New Orleans takes the cake!
This lovely establishment is in the garden district only a few blocks away from the wonderful and famous Commanders Palace restaurant and voodoo BBQ! There is a trolley stop right across the street! Very convenient! $3 for an all day pass you cannot beat it!
Our room was a spacious one bedroom with a nice kitchenette with a full size refrigerator 4 burner stove top microwave and dishwasher. The bathroom was small but it did the job and the bed was very comfy after drinking voodoo juice all night on Bourbon Street!
I loved waking up leaving the hubby in bed to sleep in and going down to the pool area for an early morning dip and free cup Of coffee. The pool was on the small side but after melting away in the heat of NOLA it was very cold and refreshing! The staff was also very refreshing and nice all every day at all hours of the day. They were all fantastic!

We loved every moment of our trip and we are planning our next trip back as soon as we can buy tickets!!!

First and foremost, the staff is just like the rest of the locals: helpful, friendly, and good at what they do. The rooms are very comfortable, clean, as are the the rest of the amenities.

What my wife and I enjoyed most about Avenue Plaza was the location. [You'll notice a recurring theme throughout these reviews... but it's absolutely the best location we know of in the city] With the St. Charles street car right out front, you have access to both the must-see parts of NoLA and some more off-the-grid places. It was such a nice feeling to know that we could have all the fun in the world only to escape to our own little sanctuary at the drop of a hat (or the toss of some beads).

I chose Avenue Plaza Resort because of a decent review on Trip Advisor. All I can say is people must be easily pleased. Rooms were a decent size, clean and adequately furnished. The first morning I called the lobby and asked what time breakfast was served to, the answer was 'we do not do breakfast, we have no breakfast restaurant'. I then asked if they could ask Housekeeping to collect some laundry, their answer 'we don't do laundry'. After 2 days it was obvious my room had not been cleaned, I called the lobby and asked 'Could someone please clean my room' You guessed it, the answer was 'We don't clean the rooms' I now know this is a timeshare property and the objective is to sell any passing guests a timeshare somewhere within the Wyndham Empire. There was no pressure and the staff were great but the lack of facilities and the fact it is a timeshare property should be clearly highlighted so any guests know what to expect. Based on this experience I would never stay at this hotel or any other Wyndham Hotel if it operates the same way as Avenue Plaza Resort.

Thank you for taking the time to provide this feedback. We are sorry to hear you were unsatisfied with the room and resort accommodations. Our goal is to make each guest feel at home by providing kitchen and laundry accommodations. Because we have condo-style resorts, certain hotel amenities such as daily housekeeping do not exist. We strive to provide this information to the guest through our website, pre-arrival letter and confirmation letter. We apologize for any confusion and will work to better communicate this through additional channels in the future. We are sorry for your experience and greatly value your feedback.

Couple with older parents visiting New Orleans. Booked through Booking.com for a decent rate. Front desk, valet, and hospitality staff could not have been more friendly or helpful. Beds were comfortable in our rooms - 1 bedroom queen suite and 1 efficiency king. Nice fitness center, on site laundry, in room safe, and free wifi. St Charles streetcar stops right in front and the car was available within 5 minutes of calling every time. Easy in to French Quarter and great access to Garden District including Magazine Street.

We came to New Orleans for our third time to stay here. LaTosha at the front desk and Jerome Junior and Senior continue to be delightful and helpful. We asked a special favor of Latosha at front desk and she said she would do if able. What a wondefful surprise for us! The renovations and updates have been completed! The rooms are lovely! We love that the St Charles St street car is just out the door. Christmas in NOLA is such fun, even if it was chilly for us Floridians.

Room Tip: We love the rooms on front of building so we can watch the streetcars.
