Great location in the heart of downtown. Two Casinos close by

We chose the hotel based on previous reviews and proximity to downtown restaurants. Unfortunately, most places downtown weren’t open so we had to drive to find food to eat. The hotel staff was great. Unfortunately, the room was not. The bed was very comfortable, which after days of driving, was a welcomed comfort. However, the room was dirty. The carpeted floor was sticky. There was a toy/trash under the desk. The toilet was obviously not cleaned. Last, the paint was chipping on the bathtub (it stuck to my feet in the shower). That said, I didn’t feel comfortable bathing my child in it and I reluctantly let him crawl on the floor. With all of the health and safety measures hospitality is supposed to be taking for COVID, I was really disappointed in how this room was lacking basic cleanliness and highly doubted we were in a safe and sanitized space. A nice staff and cozy bed doesn’t quite make up for the rest for me on this one. We would skip it next time.

Very clean, friendly and helpful staff, great rooms and free full breakfast along with being a short walk to the river center!

Very clean. Staff was very friendly. The shower floor should be scrubbed a little more and possibly a new shower head but other then that the stay was great.

Good location, friendly staff, free airport shuttle, breakfast... Really everything I needed for a short business trip stay.

The property was conveniently located in downtown near restaurants and super easy to get to campus.

Everything was clean and functioned well. Super comfortable bed. Fully equipped - gym, business facilities, etc. Central city location. No complaints, good value.

There is no parking available. You take your chance of parking in a business spot or paid parking lot

Good location and good value for money. Clean. Airport transfer is a plus.

Very clean and accommodating! Rooms are large,bed linens are clean, and free breakfast is good. Good price!

Staff was professional and friendly during my one night stay. Room appeared updated compared to the building age so I inquired and learned it was a recent conversion of what was a bank at the beginning. Nicely done work and materials. It was convenient for my travels.

Very nice. Free breakfast ends to early. Would stay again.

The room itself looked decent and it was clean. The price was reasonable for a downtown location. The two biggest complaints that I have is the bad view and bad breakfast. The interior rooms on the second floor where we stayed have a window that faces into a void and ugly middle area with nothing but a drain in the middle of the floor/roof. All you can see is that void area and the windows of the other guest that have an interior room on second and third floor. The breakfast was really bad. All the food was overcooked and they didn't have much out. The first day of our two days at the hotel, the man that ran the breakfast was coming out and asking if everything was okay and explained that the food truck had not arrived yet and they were lacking things. Well it was 9 AM and breakfast ends at 9:30 AM. Breakfast on the second day was just as bad if not worse. Not sure if the food truck was late on the second day too, but there wasn't much out that day either. Either way, lack of food doesn't explain why the food that was out was do bad. Nice guy running breakfast, but the food was very bad.

We were met by the most friendly and helpful valet. The check in process was fast and efficient. I was impressed with entire staff I came in contact with. Our room had a sliding bathroom door that had come off the runners. A maintenance person was send up very quickly. When the repair was going to be lengthy, we were delivered key cards for another room in short order. The room was very clean and comfortable. We enjoyed a good and plentiful continental breakfast. Check out was a breeze. The valet brought our car around quickly and loaded our luggage for us. I will be sure to use this hotel in any future trips to Baton Rouge.

Room very clean, staff friendly, close walk to all things to do downtown!!
