Every March, thousands gather to the energetic city of New Orleans to partake in the renowned Mardi Gras festivities. At Wyndham Avenue Plaza, you’ll be just a short trolley ride away from the vibrant pulse of Bourbon Street, meaning you’re close enough to the action, but far enough away to get a quiet night’s sleep.
The Aveneue Plaza Resort features well-appointed studio, one-, and two-bedroom units furnished with wonderful amenities and essential accommodations. From family-friendly attractions to nightlife at the famous jazz clubs, the historical wonders at the French Quarter to the unique dining experiences, there is something for every here in New Orleans. Come with us as we walk you through a day in the life at Wyndham Avenue Plaza when you choose to vacation down to the bayou.
Wake up in a cozy suite with a modern vibe and a great view of St. Charles Avenue, a bustling street right in the heart of New Orleans historic Garden District. Cook up a nice breakfast for you and your family in the kitchenette, which comes equipped with essentials such as a microwave, stove, toaster, refrigerator, and cookware/flatware. Or take it out to the rooftop sun deck and enjoy your meal in the gorgeous New Orleans weather!
Wyndham Avenue Plaza offers wonderful on-site amenities to keep you entertained and well-accommodated throughout your stay. After breakfast, get some exercise in at the resort fitness center or splash around with the kids at the resort’s on-site pool. Then treat yourself to some high-quality pampering at the spa and sauna to get you ready for the evening ahead.
Visit the concierge services desk downstairs for special deals and recommendations or discounted tickets on any of the wonderful events happening that particular day. Get spooked with a tour of The Ashley House. The building once housed prisoners of the civil war and has been reported for paranormal experience. A woman in the parlor, a phantom pianist, and unexplained footsteps walking around the house. New Orleans has a plethora of great haunted house tours, but this one is closest to the resort and the tours are free!
Venture outside of the resort and you’ll find the best sight-seeing, shopping, and dining in town. The Garden District is one of New Orleans most historic neighborhoods, featuring beautiful architecture, landmarked cemeteries, and shops along Magazine Street for shopping and a quick lunch. Jump on the St. Charles trolley and take a scenic tour around N’awlins. Head over to Jackson Square where you’ll visit the stunning 18th century St. Louis Cathedral and grab yourself a beignet and cafe au lait at Cafe du Monde as you walk around the city admiring works displayed by local artists.
For most people, the evening is spent winding down the day. But in the great city of New Orleans, that’s when the heart of entertainment really starts to rev up its beat. Treat yourself to some incredible dining at Mr. John’s, Wyndham Avenue Plaza’s one-of-a-kind steakhouse for some succulent steaks, mouthwatering seafood, and creole ingredients. For any travelers who are die-hard foodies, this will satisfy your hunger for authentic N’awlins cuisine. The restaurant has been rated Zagat’s Extraordinary to Perfection two years in a row, and is also a favorite of New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a complete day in New Orleans without a little bit of music, and venues are everywhere! Places like Eiffel Society and N’awlins Jazz Cafe offer top-quality live entertainment, delicious cocktails, and are located within minutes of the hotel in the Garden District. If you’re interested in more adult-oriented entertainment, check out Harrah’s Casino. The entertainment venue is a short trolley ride away and features poker, blackjack, and slots 24 hours a day right in the heart of downtown New Orleans!
