The nice, on-site spa with its sauna and exercise facilities is a great place to work out or just relax. Escape the Louisiana heat for the afternoon and get a full body massage, wrap or facial.
If you’d like to buy a timeshare unit at the Avenue, you can do this, too. You’ll notice there’s a timeshare sales facility on site downstairs.
Other cool features?The thing that makes this hotel really interesting to me is the Ashley House behind the outside pool. During set hours, you can tour this antebellum home built in the early nineteenth century or you can book it for special receptions. Not only is this one of the oldest buildings still standing in New Orleans, the Ashley House is supposed to be haunted by Confederate ghosts!

New Year's Eve day was a nightmare: 9 busloads of high school band students checked in for the football game! They were wild: running up and down the halls, slamming doors, screaming, shouting and playing their instruments thru the night. It was so bad that we had to threaten the front desk with calling the local police if they didn't calm things down. We checked out early after the uncaring attitude of the manager the following morning. We asked for a partial refund, wrote a letter and to this day have never received an answer.
We would NOT recommend this place to anyone. There are many other places to stay in New Orleans that will treat you better!

There always seemed to be a lot of coming and going of people whenever we walked through the lobby. It appeared that bus tours used this hotel as there were times that groups of 20 - 25 people would be milling about.
Off the lobby is Mr. John's Steak and Seafood Restaurant, a well-known local establishment that is noteworthy. There is a small concierge office off the lobby as well.
Upstairs in our unit we were pleasantly welcomed by a compact living room with large TV, sofa, and chairs that shared a room with a one wall mini kitchen with a small table and chairs. The appliances, though small in size, were ample for a vacation. There was an apartment size refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, and a small bar area.
To the right of the front door down a small S-shaped hallway was a bathroom and one bedroom. In the hallway was an extra storage and linen closet.
The bathroom was small, upgraded, but not luxurious at all. It met our needs but with nothing special to write home about. The bedroom was of average size, decorated in the heavier darker colors of the old South. It contained a queen sized bed, small desk and chair, second TV, and small closet. A nice touch was the overhead ceiling fan for stuffy hot New Orleans nights. Within hours of our arrival it was apparent that the air conditioning was not working correctly. Within minutes of a call to the front desk, a maintenance person arrived to repair it. We were nice and cool after that.
Windows in the bedroom and living room looked out over St. Charles Avenue and though we were initially concerned this might mean some noise, we were never bothered during our week's stay.
The timeshare also has a spa, but we did not partake of its pleasures - too many other things to see and do. Check-in and check-out went smoothly with no glitches.

This particular Super 8 has an outdoor pool and whirlpool. Toast and coffee were available in the lobby area for breakfast. However, we opted for breakfast at the Roadrunner Cafe, which was located down the street from the Super 8.
Note: Holbrook is a good base from which to explore Petrified Forest National Park and the Painted Desert.
