I like this location on St Charles, it is just far enough out of downtown and the trolley is just out the front door. The rooms a very comfortable and include a kitchen. The staff if very friendly and helpful. They have some great suggestions for close by restaurants and sightseeing.

Full disclosure: I didn't pay for this room, i attended a convention in N.O. with a time share owner. Arrived by car, had to go around the block to wait for a valet spot to open. Valet was quick, though. I'm paranoid about my luggage so i loaded 4 people's luggage on a cart while the owner checked in. Very nice lobby, fast check in. We got a room on 4. Hallways, elevators were nice and clean, lift was fast. Two room suite with *kitchen*, microwave, fridge/freezer, coffee pot, dishwasher (and dishes!), and a stove. Opened the blinds, the view could have been better, but not bad. Married couple that owned the timeshare got the bedroom w/big screen TV, 3rd guy got the sofa bed and i brought my bedroll to sleep on the floor (why do i get the short straw on these things?) Plenty of plugins for cel phones, laptop, PS3, and another big screen to hook it to. Bathroom was tiny, but nice. No tub, but big shower, which is where my only complaint comes in, those swing out door for the shower? They never work right, and its not like we were having a group shower (lol), but we got water everywhere. I was usually the last to take a shower, so i mopped it up. Climate control ran like a top, though we had to adjust it when we got there. Very quiet, lots of channels on the TV, pool and hot tub were clean, though i never got a chance to use them. Sundeck on the roof, 12 floors up. No wheelchair access to that, so bear that in mind. Gym was well equipped, didn't use that, either, though. WiFi was bordering on terrible, but still ok. I had my laptop and had trouble, someone else in the party had a Nook and reported no problems, so maybe it was me. At the time of the trip, Dec 1 2012, the street cars were being renovated and not running down ST Charles, so that was sort of lame. Valet was prompt with the car when we left, though the desk crew was a bit slow collecting the parking fee. Good times were had by all, would stay again.

Room Tip: Get a room about halfway up facing Downtown or St Charles Street.

It is a great value in the Garden District. Streetcar stops in front of the Hotel and is a cheap way to get around.It is a time share property but we were never approached about buying a time share.Staff was friendly and all and all it was a good experience.Room was spacious and included a full kitchen.

Stayed here for a short trip to New Orleans and had a good time. The front desk was very helpful and the bell staff was superb. The only problem was that the streetcar line directly in front of the hotel was under repair, however we could catch the bus and then connect.

....I would not stay here again.Its a Wyndham time share property. They rent available rooms to tourists,You are not treated as an "owner".Front desk told me that the coffee/breakfast area and gym etc were for owners.Nothing about that when reservations were made.We used all that stuff anyway but it felt funny.Front desk service was uneven. Some helpful/some not.The property is more like a nice Interstate hotel than a New Orleans resort hotel.It is aging some and hot water was scarce for one day.
A tip off I missed - I learned of the place through an email from Cooking.com!

Room Tip: Higher floors have better views.

We stayed here a week. After having a negative experience at another Garden District hotel it was heaven to move here. The staff are very friendly, the room is large with a full size kitchen, and it is very convenient to transportation. Additional goodies are themes every day. There is a nice restaurant attached to the hotel and other good restaurants nearby. I highly recommend this hotel

We greatly enjoyed our stay at the Avenue Plaza. We had a studio room complete with a kitchen. The kitchen was well appointed with all necessary dishes and silverware. Our room was updated, clean and very comfortable. Sitting on the roof deck at the end of the day was very enjoyable. The staff was helpful and courteous. Unfortunately, the streetcar was not running due to maintenance and the buses were crowded. It is a short ride to Canal St and the $1.25 single ride, $3.00 all day Jazzy pass were a deals. If is located in a quieter neighborhood in the Garden District away from the hustle and noise of the French Quarter. A short distance down St Charles Ave is the Fresh Market. It is a great place for food shopping. Parking is on the expensive side but with the inexpensive passes on the transit system, we did not find a car necessary.

Room Tip: A higher floor away from St Charles Avenue noise would be preferable.
