Hotel Overview

With Louisiana State University nearby, our Baton Rouge hotel is a favorite for visiting students, faculty and staff.

Show More / Less

While the central city location makes us stand out, it's the southern hospitality at our Louisiana State University hotel that guests especially enjoy. Our proximity to the highway and the I-10 and I-12 split makes us a prime location for business travelers and those looking for quick commutes during their stay. Whether you are headed to a meeting or a plantation tour, it's quick to get there from our property.

Baton Rouge, Louisiana is already known for hospitality, but we go above and beyond. Enjoy complimentary high-speed wireless Internet in each guest room, and a complimentary full hot breakfast buffet every morning featuring your breakfast favorites. A buffet of hot waffles, biscuits, gravy, fruits, pastries, cereal, yogurt and 100% Arabica coffee ensure your day is off to a great start.

Our pet-friendly hotel has spacious rooms and suites available to accommodate families or those who just want a little more space with their four-legged friend. Numerous plantations surround our Baton Rouge hotel, and a tour is the perfect way to explore the culture and history of the area. The downtown area is full of excitement, with the Bayou Country Superfest® during Memorial Day weekend, a local favorite. The Blue Bayou, Dixie Landin and BREC's Baton Rouge Zoo are also popular.

We specialize in extended stays at our Baton Rouge hotel, perfect for business travelers with Lamar Advertising, Clean Harbors®, Entergy® or Synergy® Home Health. Suites are more like small apartments, so business travelers with PreSonus Audio Electronic, Inc., Southern Financial Exchange, Ben E. Keith® and First National Bankers Bank® feel right at home. FEMA workers are often here for weeks, and the sport court, fitness center and business center make long stays more enjoyable. Guests living within a 40 mile radius of the hotel will have an additional $300.00 per stay authorization that will be released upon check-out if no damages or charges are incurred.
