Historical Traveler Reviews Wyndham Garden Hotel Baronne Plaza New Orleans
False Advertising and a Dump
There was no valet area to park in once we got there or an attendant either. There was no restaurant or bar as advertised therefore, there was no free breakfast. The room was filthy. The room next to us was very loud. We asked to be moved to another room the next day and were told that we had already checked out even though we still had another night on our reservation. Our new room was even nastier than the first.
The toilet was cracked in half and filthy and the shower curtain looked like it had never been cleaned. We will never stay and this hotel again and would certainly not recommend it to anyone else.
What a great deal close to Bourbon Street
What a great deal. Clean, quiet and close to the French Quarter (2 blocks.) Give it a try!
Great Place to Stay
My husband and I have stayed at this hotel numerous times and we have had very good stays each time. You cannot beat the price for the ammenities at this hotel. The staff was very pleasant and the room well acquipped, not to mention the convenient distance to the French Quarter. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who is visiting the area.
Stayed there last week.
I've made 17 trips to New Orleans in the past 12 years & this hotel is one of the nicest. I've stayed at numerous properties including many top rated ones.The room was huge,very clean,maids were better than average and staff was great. The location was terrific too only a block to Canal. While I was watching parades I could run back to the hotel to go to the bathroom.If you get what you pay for then I got above and beyond my money's worth. I also feel the CBD area is a lot safer than the 1/4 for Mardi Gras.I will definitely return to this hotel. It's a super value. I did not hear any noises as some people here suggested and as I said it was very clean.I was happy!!I paid around $70 a night at ----------.
You get what you pay for!
Spent one night there- a Saturday in mid June. When I checked in, the bell hop was no where to be found until I unloaded the car. When I faced a long check in line at 3PM, he disappeared not to return. The hotel appeared to be OK but I found it too be very noisy on the second floor. Many times we were awakened by noisy people in the halls and even a fight at some time in the early AM. So, we did not get much rest and when we got up to check out, There was no hot water.(7AM) I mentioned this to the lady at check-out and her only comment was that another guest had reported no hot water earlier and that the manager would not be in until 10AM. So, I feel that the two reasons for paying for a hotel ( sleep & shower) were not met and the staff did nothing to even express regret. Since I got a decent rate, I guess that the old addage of "you get what you pay for" is certainly true.
My room was clean, spacious and the a/c worked extremely well. Had all the in room conviences of higher priced hotels. Lobby is dark and drab and not very welcoming, could definitely use some lighing. It is very convientely located to everything down town. I would definitely stay here again.
Stayed at the Baronne Plaza 3/26 to 3/29. Staff was very helpful (switched to non-smoking room no problem). Rooms are adequate size, very clean, cable tv w/HBO. Location is excellent - walking distance to everything. Highly recommend!
Misleading, dirty, and overpriced
We stayed there for one night and were stuck with a smoking room when I specifically requested non smoking. It smelled so bad, I wondered if there was a person smoking under the bed while we were there. It was dirty and there was soap from the occupant before us in the bathtub-it had not been cleaned. The headboard fell to the ground in the middle of the night and then they charged us twice for parking. I don't know what hotel it is in the picture on their web page but it was not taken in their lobby. It took a good 30min for the valet to get our car and he came driving up from an entirely different street. I wonder where my car had been all night? the only pro is that it is 1 1/2 blocks from the french quarter.
Perfectly Good Accommodation at a Great Price
The Barrone Plaza is one of the better hotel values near the French Quater. For $89 a night during the weekend the rooms were clean, quiet (until the construction crew across the street started work)and comfortable. We were able to check in at 11AM and were not hassled for checking out a bit late. There is a health club (in N.O.?) and whirlpool as well. All of this in an older building with at least some character. Couple this with a two block walk to Bourbon St. and its all good. We will be back.
If you're looking for no-frills in New Orlean
If you're looking for no-frills accommodation in New Orleans, try the Baronne Plaza. On block back from Canal St, easy walking to all attractions in the French Quarter & CBD, trolleycar one block away will take you to the Garden District. But it is definitely 'no frills'- rooms are basic but clean, service is basic and not overly attentive, no breakfast or room service. There is valet parking but that's about it! We got the room $69/night - on a holiday weekend - so we were happy! Why pay big bucks for a bed and a shower when you have ALL of New Orleans to party in 24 hours a day, seven days a week!!

We rushed from the hotel to make the train only to find we had heaps of time. This wasn't just any train. This was "City of New Orleans", made famous by Arlo Guthrie and Willie Nelson. We sat upstairs for a while, but then went and spent most of the trip sitting in the viewing car playing cards. When I say playing cards, I mean that I was playing …
Due to the previous nights mishaps we couldn't leave as planned so we had to hang around the campgrounds for a while before embarking on the biggest drive of the trip. Understandably everyone slept most of the ride today, trying to catch up on missed sleep from the previous night. Our lunch stop was at a beautiful park complex that had a huge wooden playground, some sporting fields and some lovely picnic areas. We spent most ...
... for a couple weeks of real heat but I'm getting the feeling that it won't happen. We will head towards Las Cruces and then on to Palm Springs and Las Vegas before actually crossing the border back to the land of ice and snow.
OK folks, I see that there's a heat wave coming to Edmonton this week (+10C) so break out the lawn chairs and suntan lotion, whip up some margaritas and pretend that spring is just around the ...
Guy: Hey man, betcha I can tell you where you got your shoes.
P: (without missing a beat) On my feet.
Guy: (sounding impressed) Oh, you been around huh?
So, we made friends with the guy after that. Sharing our bottle of Crown helped too I think. He both successfully and unsuccessfully tried the shoe-scam on others while we watched. I honestly don't know how anyone falls for it, even if you weren't forewarned. It ...
Blake and I made it to New Orleans around 2:30 this afternoon and for the first time in over a week had a bed (we are staying at a motel for te night). We both hit our bed for the first time and slept for about 4 hours. We both needed it after last night. Neither of ...
