“Lovely hotel in Garden area of New Orleans”
Reviewed 12 May 2013

On arrival receptions seemed very busy, Beautiful room/ suite. Noticed was quite a small bathroom but not a problem to us, as luckily we have no disabilities. both had two perfect nights sleep there. Trolley bus outside, can get into town easily but felt we were in the best place as a few good restaurants there so after the first nights visit to Beake street by trolley bus...really interesting!!! the following day we did the open top bus tour from around the corner, stayed in town during the daytime and came back 7.30 PM and went on later to eat at Thea a lovely bistro type restaurant recommended by Tourist board ....well done them !!!! Hotel convenient to walk around the Garden quarter, view a graveyard which us a MUST also, but not in the hustle and bustle of New Orleans the whole time, Jacuzzi in rear if hotel, complimentary tea & coffee extra to that in room useful.

Room Tip: Heard the ice machine which if outside our bedroom would have been noisy. Apart from that ALL rooms...

My husband and I are fans of the UCONN women's basketball team. The final four was in New Orleans. We booked through RCI and were excited to go. After booking I read some reviews, and was a little concerned. Some of the reviews were not very good. We have to disagree. The hotel was absolutely lovely. Very clean, nicely decorated and a very good location, right across the street from a streetcar stop in the Garden District. There is a pretty pool area, with Jazz coming from somewhere, nice and relaxing. The onsite restaurant is Mr. John's steakhouse. Really great meal with a nice atmosphere, need reservation, especially on Saturday night. The hotel staff was very good, helpful in recommending restaurants, tours, etc. Down the street is a small moderately priced restaurant named Cheesecake Inc, dinner was good but dessert was fabulous. The cheesecake topped with Bananas Foster is my new favorite dessert. Awesome good. We had a wonderful experience at Avenue Plaza and would recommend it without hesitation. Bonus!!
We won!!!!!

Room Tip: We were on the sixth floor and the view at night of the city lights was really pretty.

I was able to book a studio unit at the last minute for Jazz Fest this year. We'd stayed at this location a few years ago and was pleasantly surprised at the upgrades. Although our previous unit was a full 1 bedroom, the size of the studio was perfectly fine for the two of us. Yes the bathrooms are tiny but hey, you're in the city. The staff was very friendly and provided great insider tips on how to navigate the city. Although I like the location of Wyndham's other property more because of its proximity to Canal St., I would not hesitate to stay here again. As mentioned in other reviews, the Streetcar stops directly in front of the hotel so transportation is never an issue. It ran until 4AM.

How much do we hate this place? Well, imagine a room placed right behind the very loud elevators that go up and down every couple of minutes. Imagine being in a room right next to a train track. Imagine an uncaring and incompetent "service" staff. Now multiply that by 100. ... You'd be getting close to how much we hate this place. For a Wyndham and we have a platinum membership, there is just no excuse. ... But you have to remember, if the staff is this incompetent, uncaring and borderline insulting, they must feel that they have permission to be that way from upper management. ... Obviously, my wife and I will never stay here again. ... We have stayed in the Wyndham Belle Maison before without even a hint of a problem. If you must be In a. Wyndham in New Orleans, it'll be the Belle Maison. This place is unforgivable.

The property is a suite hotel. The converted hotel rooms were done fairly well except the bathroom is absurdly small and when you sit on the toilet you do a lot of shoulder rubbing with the vanity. The shower was nice but tiny, and the bracket for the handheld shower head was broken you had to wrestle that in order to start a shower. The kitchen was nice and complete. It was hard to figure out what housekeeping services were provided and when the trash would pile up and take up too much space I would have to go ask someone how to get rid of the trash. I also did not care for the secret condo sales pitch that they kept wanting to give to us. They held free activities but when you inquired you had to go to a timeshare pitch to get the freebies. Not very transparent. The bell hop staff were very helpful.

After looking at what felt like all the hotels in New Orleans on this site we picked this one and are glad we did! We brought our 3 and 5yr old boys here for the weekend and we all had a blast! From the valet to the bellboy to the front desk, ALL of the hotel staff was VERY friendly,helpful and welcoming. The room was clean and comfortable. The kitchenette was a bonus. So much easier to bring your own food when traveling w/ little ones. It was great to get on and off the street car right in front of the hotel (less walking for the boys). The boys and us, loved the pool and hot tub after a day full of activities. It was nice to go into the city but then come back to peace and quiet. We have NO complaints. We would DEFINITELY stay here again! Thanks for making this family vacay a memorable one Avenue Plaza!

Room Tip: Request an upper floor on the city view side. It was nice to wake up and go to sleep w/ a whole vie...
