Mardi Gras season is officially underway, with festivities continuing until the finale at midnight on February 16th (Mardi Gras day.) This year marks the 173rd year of parading around New Orleans, and is expected to have the highest number of visitors since Katrina. Affordable accommodations are surely hard to come-by, with hotel room nights running upwards of $400 plus tax. However, regular Mardi Gras attendees have discovered the best way to experience the festivities is owning a timeshare, like the luxurious Wyndham Avenue Plaza!Formerly Avenue Plaza Resort & Spa, this property is located on St.Charles Avenue, in the Garden District of New Orleans - close enough to walk to Bourbon Street, but just far enough from the famous festival to enjoy a sound night's sleep. The resort's recently-renovated studio, one, and two-bedroom units are tastefully decorated, and feature mini-kitchens with dishwasher and microwave. On-site amenities include a courtyard pool and rooftop sundeck.
Now that Avenue Plaza is part of Wyndham Vacation Resorts, owners can exchange to top-notch Wyndham timeshares across the globe, in addition to properties listed with RCI or Interval International.
For those interested specifically in staying during Mardi Gras, buying timeshare that's deeded a
fixed week between 5 & 9 will guarantee a room during the Festival.... but act quick, as these weeks are always in short supply! Search our inventory to buy a Mardi Gras timeshare week now!!
