    Wyndham La Belle Maison October 8th-12th, 2016

    We visited Wyndham La Belle Maison on a timeshare exchange. The resort is lovely! We had a one bedroom unit on the 3rd floor. It was clean and updated with huge floor-to-ceiling windows in the living/dining/kitchen area. We had a terrible view - the parking garage of the Sheraton Hotel next door, but the unit was light, and we did not plan on spending much time in the unit. The high ceilings made it seem much larger than it was. There were no windows in the bedroom, but there were double French doors leading to the room with shutters that could open to let light in. The bathroom had door leading to both the bedroom and the living area. The Exposed brick on the walls in the bedroom and living room accented the New Orleans decor. The bed was very comfortable, and the furnishings were in great shape. There was a sleeper sofa and a dining table that seats four. At check in, we were asked if we needed a unit with a stove (this was not on our confirmation). We had a refrigerator, microwave, sink and dishwasher. We did not plan to do any cooking, so we declined. I don't know if there would have been an extra fee for this.
    We did not have a car, and we did not need one. The 11 bus on Magazine street, right outside the resort, took us to the National World War II Museum (outstanding museum) and to the Audubon Zoo. Canal street is only 2 blocks away and the trolley line is right there. It was an easy walk to Harrah's casino, the river, and the French Quarter. The desk staff were very helpful and gave us suggestions on where to grab breakfast. The breakfast/brunch place across the street, Ruby Slippers, always had a long wait so we did not go.
    The pool was very tiny, but we did see a family with 3 small children come up on the elevator with pool towels, so they got use out of it. The "spa" was drained while we were there. There is a small fitness center with a few commercial-grade machines. The vending machine in there was out of order, as was the trash chute on our floor.
    There is a laundry room on the 7th floor with washers and dryers at no charge. In the welcome basket in the unit were a couple of detergent packets, which was a nice touch.
    This is a perfect location for exploring all that New Orleans has to offer, and was a wonderful relaxing place to return to each night after a long day of exploring.

    We had a view of the atrium from our windows when we were there last year, so at least you got to see outside!

    It's in a great location for exploring the quarter though, and with urban units I don't really expect much of a view.

    I do love those high ceilings and exposed brick. And it's great to be so close to the FQ but also be able to enjoy peace and quiet when you get back to your hotel.
