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 Super Fest during Memorial Day weekend a local favorite. The Blue Bayou, Dixie Landin’ and BREC’s Baton Rouge Zoo are also popular.
