The Avenue Plaza is located on the edge of the Garden District a few miles from the French Quarter. It's quieter in this area of New Orleans with some neighborhood restaurants within easy walking distance. You could also purchase RTA passes at the Walgreens to make use of the public transportation system that runs along St. Charles Avenue to get to other areas of the city. The only problem at this time is that the St. Charles streetcar which normally runs right in front stops about 6 blocks short because of construction and doesn't seem to be ready to resume the normal route any time in the near future.
We found the staff at the Avenue Plaza to be very helpful and courteous. The room and the common areas were well maintained and clean. The room itself needs some basic redesign. The space seems roomy enough but there's not enough storage to unpack your bags. The only furniture in the room is a small dining table with 3 chairs. There is no comfortable chair for reading or lounging in the room. There is a small kitchenette with a refrigerator, cooktop, coffee maker, and microwave along with a sink. This came in handy since the bathroom was very cramped so we needed the counter space here for our personal items.
The shower takes up half of the bathroom and is large enough but lacks any shelves for your shampoo and bath soap. Where do you put these items?
The laundry room on the 2nd floor has lots of washers and dryers for guests to use at no charge so we were able to do a load while we were there.
We also took advantage of the Ashley House tour provided by the staff. Plan to take this in during your visit to learn about it's haunted history.
