“Great hotel, plus they take pets”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

I have always loved Towneplace. I stay in them all over the country. These hotels are always very comfortable, except they don't have king beds. A king bed is one thing I look for. Marriott beds are always top notch, but this one could have been better. I stayed in a TP all summer in West Dundee, IL which had way better beds. Other than that, I loved the kitchen and hot tub, so this was a very nice hotel. I recommend this place.

Hello there! Thank you so very much for taking a moment to review our property. I am extremely happy to hear that you were satisfied with your accommodations as far as the kitchen and pool/spa amenities. I apologize for the issues that you experienced with bed comfort during your visit. I certainly understand how that can affect the quality of your stay. I am assuming that you were most likely staying in one of our rooms that had not yet been renovated, as all of our renovated rooms have been issued brand new Serta Perfect Sleeper Pillow Top Mattresses. All rooms have now been renovated, so if you are ever in the area again, please stop in to give us another try. Thanks again! Have a great day!

Stayed here for a long time while getting knee surgery nearby, then recovery & rehab. Cannot recommend it highly enough. The staff are wonderful, so helpful. The main building has been remodeled and the new rooms are beautiful (not sure if building opposite has been redone yet). It is clean, close proximity to Our Lady of the Lake Hospital, Baton Rouge General Hospital, Bone & Joint Clinic, and others. No room service here, but plenty of restaurants nearby. They have a little breakfast in lobby, not alot (coffee, cereal, yogurt, muffins, fruit), but adequate.

Room Tip: Higher floors suffer less from parking lot and traffic noise.

Stayed 2 nights over Super Bowl weekend in a 2 bedroom unit. Clean and spacious enough unit. Great location off I-10 with plenty of restaurants and bars nearby. Morning breakfast just the basics. Great, friendly staff.

Thank you so much for taking the time to review our property! Having grown up just a couple of hours away from Philadelphia, I am glad to hear that a fellow Pennsylvanian enjoyed the accommodations at my property. I understand that the breakfast service is fairly limited at this time, but we will soon be expanding our breakfast service to include some additional items such as waffles, bagels and english muffins! Again, thank you for the kind words, and from all of us here at the TownePlace Suites Baton Rouge, thank you for staying with us, we are happy that you enjoyed your time in Baton Rouge. If you're ever in the area again, please come pay us a visit! Have a great day!

Marriot lost my reservation. Jason at the front desk was helpful in securing me a room for the night but not at the price quoted to me face to face. Get it in writing!!!! Good room, bad taste. Went to sleeping thinking I was paying one price, woke up to double that amount. Be along time before I stay at a Marriot again.

Room Tip: Get your room rate in writing!

Thank you for taking the time to review our property! I sincerely apologize for the issues that you had with your reservation accuracy. I absolutely understand how frustrating that can be to make arrangements anticipating to pay a certain amount for those services, and then to have those costs be more than originally agreed upon. Please feel free to contact me directly if you would like to discuss this issue further. Beside the difficulties with your rate, I am very happy that you were satisfied with your accommodations. If you should ever be in the area again, please give us another try so that we may exceed your expectations. Have a wonderful day!

We were looking for 2 bedroom suite near Our Lady of the Lake and booked here. Very nice room with one separate bathroom from the two bedrooms. Staff is courteous and on the job. Close to Mall of Louisiana and several health care facilities.

very nice staff. they prettu much give out points for members like crazy. the rooms and hotel in general is clean. the entrance creeps up on you so watch for it and get in the turning lane early. the breakfast was a low budget type that had me buying my own; dont think they actually even have a breakfast room. the ac in the room was so-so. oddly placed tv in the room. the noise level was pretty high during the day which i sleep; not the best for sure. across the road from a hospital medical center deal. overall id say an A- just because of the ac issue alone. pros outweigh the cons though. id stay here again

Thank you so much for taking the time to review our property! It is wonderful to hear that you were satisfied with your accommodations, and I am very glad that you enjoyed the complimentary bonus Marriott Rewards points! We certainly try to do everything we can to show our appreciation for our Elite Marriott Rewards members. I understand your frustration with the air conditioning issues you experienced. The summers in Louisiana leave no room for any lack of functionality where air conditioning is concerned. I will investigate this and ensure that any issues with this particular AC are resolved immediately. I also appreciate your feedback in regard to the breakfast selection. I realize our offerings are limited and you are correct in stating that we do not have a breakfast room. Our property was originally designed when the TownePlace Suites brand did not offer any sort of breakfast, and we are doing our best to offer what we can with our grab and go "Morning Break" breakfast selection. On the bright side, we will be undergoing a full renovation beginning January 2013, after which we WILL have a breakfast room, and will be expanding our breakfast selection. Only a few months away! From the entire TownePlace Suites team, thank you so much for your business. See you next time!

We chose this location for an overnight stay after reading many positive reviews. We were not disappointed. Check-in (and check-out) was quick and easy. Our room was comfortable and clean. Wi-Fi was available. Although we did not use the indoor pool others were enjoying it on a hot summer day.

There is no eating area in the lobby so we took our breakfast back to our room using their disposable trays (which our granddaughter used in the car as a lap board!). Breakfast consisted on muffins, yogurt, cereal, granola bars, fruit, and coffee, tea and juice. Although nothing fancy it was perfectly adequate.

We learned that the hotel, in a quiet area just off a main street, is in a safe area. We inadvertently left a back window of our SUV opened overnight with some items in the trunk area (under the trunk cover). When we discovered it in the morning everything was exactly as we had left it.

We have stayed in several other TownePlace Suites across the country and have always been pleased with our stays. If in Baton Rouge again we would certain choose to stay here.
