In the heart of the LSUcampus on University Lake; this is southern hospitality at its best!

Breakfast was good. Room was large. It was better than several other places we’ve stayed in BR.

The hotel is on LSU campus and very convenient. It was a very quiet stay and wonderful to visit with my son who attends LDU. We will definitely use this hotel again.

I love that it is on campus! This makes it great for walking around and exploring the campus area.

Lovely updated hotel on the LSU Campus. A lovely entrance, friendly staff, delicious hot breakfast.

This is the hotel linked to the Lod Cook Conference Center where I attended a business meeting. The hotel matches most high end business hotels (Marriott, Hyatt, etc.) at which I have stayed. The hot breakfast in the morning is very nice with a good variety of options. The only tricky bit is in navigating to it. My Uber drivers were a bit confused as the hotel shows up at the conference center by the street address, but it is behind it. Gladly stay there again if I am back at LSU for meetings.

Got up graded to a King Suite. Would have preferred bacon at breakfast. Food at the event was excellent especially the gumbo.

The hotel was nice with some LSU touches, but nothing special. Our room was so small and cramped. For $139 a night, the room should be larger. It was the smallest I’ve ever stayed in. There is no bar area or restaurant which would have been nice.

Continental breakfast is comical, and while I understand the intent is to get you to buy the full breakfast, when you have small kids they dont eat old muffins and oatmeal. Staff has no sense of humor. Guy commented on my Vanderbilt hat, so I cracked An LSU joke and he got all butt hurt.
