Do century-old Victorian mansions fringed by oaks and palm trees set your heart aflutter? If so, you’ll love New Orleans’ Garden District, where stately residences ranging up to 185 years old rarely cease to awe those who wander its beautiful streets. Sitting along this enchanting enclave’s edge is Avenue Plaza Resort, a convenient hotel with a fitness center, a pool, a low-key restaurant, a courtyard and a selection of comfortable suites. Its best amenity? Arguably its views over the whole National Historic Landmark neighborhood and beyond.?
Take a leisurely stroll to admire all the dazzling architecture, and then decide where to go next. Another perk of being where you are – specifically, on St. Charles Avenue – is that the streetcar stop’s just steps away. Hop on for a ride to charming Carrollton, the Central Business District or the French Quarter, which begins where the streetcar line ends. If the grand homes in your own neck of the woods haven’t inspired you, surely this landmark destination, with its Creole cottages and double-gallery townhouses, will do the trick.
Your spacious One Bedroom suite features a modern kitchenette with all the necessities, including a stove, a microwave, a coffeemaker, cookware and a dishwasher. You’ll get a cable TV, too, with a DVD player for watching your favorite flicks.
Grab a bite or a sip – we suggest the city’s signature Sazerac – at Mr. Johns, a laid-back gourmet eatery. There are a host of other restaurants in this food city, so be sure to acquaint yourself with the local culinary scene; we suggest Commander’s Palace and hit Israeli restaurant Shaya, for eating out, without having to travel too far.
The Garden District is one of New Orleans’ most instantly recognizable neighborhoods. It’s packed with breathtaking Victorian mansions ranging up to 185 years old and happens to house some of the most iconic local restaurants, too – not to mention popular shopping thoroughfare Magazine Street. The St. Charles streetcar can take you farther uptown or towards the Central Business District and the edge of the French Quarter.
How to Get There
Booked though Wyndham Extra Holidays and requested a wheelchair accessible bathroom/ room. Wyndham confirmed the request was on the reservation.
Almost two weeks before my mother was to check in, I stopped by the desk and spent 20 minutes with the manager on staff. She stated that they had assigned a handicap accessible room with a wheel chair accessible bathroom to the reservation. She also provided me with a glass of water. They were informed that my mother soon to be 96, who had a partial hip replacement, and Alzheimer with her caregivers would be checking in for 5 day stays two weeks in a row due to demolition of a structure under her apartment window.
When they checked in she was given a room where the wheelchair was blocked from reaching the bathroom as the passage between the bed and the bathroom was too narrow. The bathroom had not handicap bars and the wheel chair, had it been able to get there could not get my mom to the facilities.
The hotel staff informed there was no other room for them and that the cancellation policy was 72 hours and they would still charge us for checking in Sunday through to check out Friday.
yesterday, I spoke to Whyndam Extra Holiday, Serena, and was told they only collect the first nights charge and I would have to speak with the staff at Avenue Plaza hotel in New Orleans. The spelling of her name was not provided when requested.
I called back and spoke to Marilyn and she escalated it to a Jasmine who was to have called back yesterday.
Located in the beautiful Garden District with upscale restaurants and shops nearby. You are just steps from the Trolley Car that you can ride to all the sites in NOLA, I highly recommend an all day trip to the WWII Museum - it's truly amazing and a short trip from the resort via trolley.
Great place to stay during Mardi Gras for families and those who want to watch parades without the craziness of the downtown scene. The rooms and facilities are in great shape, and the hotel staff has a well-organized routine to get everyone up the elevators after the parades. Several good restaurants and bars in the area, including street vendors during the parades, as well as two liquor stores (one with a convenience store), and a Walgreens. If you need more than that, the St. Charles street car has a stop right in front of the hotel, which made it easy to get down to the French Quarter or further out into the Garden District for a change of scenery. The street car didn’t run on parade days, but there is a bus line a few blocks away on Magazine Street. All in all, a most comfortable and convenient way to spend multiple days of parade-watching!
had a great visit with family at the Avenue, first class service, the staff was always helpful and friendly. We did encounter a 10 minute power outage and they need to work on the hot water as we were left with cold water on a couple of mornings where i couldn't shower or shave.
I loved the resort and the service of all the employees. The room was amazing and it had everything available for someone that loves leftovers. Small kitchen but adequate and just a very good location. The restaurants within walking distance were very good. The beds were very comfortable and many pillows. Also it has wifi!!!
