I have a few ongoing searches going for the end of March 2025 - La Belle Maison, the Quarterhouse and a couple others in/near the French Quarter. Has anyone had luck trading into these highly rated resorts? My RCI account is through HGVC weeks, so I don't know if that's beneficial at all. From what I’ve read, these properties become available to me as an HGVC owner 6 months before check in so I don’t see any inventory yet.

Club Wyndham Avenue Plaza is available now for dates I can travel, and I'm wondering if I should just book it if the likelihood of getting into something more centra to action is slim.

We have stayed at Worldmark Avenue several times. The Units are a bit smaller. Not uncommon for Timeshares located in Cities. No Oven. Just Stove Top. There is a St Charles Street Car Stop right out front. So just a short ride to the French Quarter. Just a short walk to the Garden District.

I can not remember the name but we have also stayed at a Timeshare on Frenchmen Street. Just Down River from the French Quarter. Great music on Frenchmen Street.
