“Remember, it's a hotel not a resort”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

We stayed in this hotel several nights as we were unable to get a hotel in New Orleans for the Superbowl. This hotel was close enough to New Orleans (~77 miles) to make it convenient enough to drive back and forth. The hotel is tucked away behind an Outback Steakhouse, and the surrounding area is a bit run down. The hotel itself seemed nice. The front desk staff were courteous and helpful. The rooms were average, and even though other reviewers on this site have found them to be dirty, ours seemed very clean. The in room refrigerator was a joke, as it was about the size of a large shoe box.

Room Tip: Get an upper floor room overlooking the courtyard, NOT the freeway

In Baton Rouge for a short work trip. The courtyard was recently remodeled, as most other courtyards have been. It's a reasonably nice property, very friendly and helpful staff, clean and comfortable rooms. Fitness center was nothing great but it works in a pinch.

I stayed at this hotel for two nights (January 19 & 20, 2013) while in town for the Louisiana Marathon. It was a solid choice, and I have no complaints whatsoever. The front desk staff upon check-in was friendly and efficient, the rooms were quiet and clean, and I'd definitely stay here again. I had called prior to arrival to check on whether the rooms had a fridge and microwave and was told no, but to my surprise the room did have a mini-fridge and I was told upon check-in that I welcome to use the microwave in "The Market" where they sell food/drink items that is open24/7.

I wanted to freeze a couple of my water bottles that had gatorade in them so they would still be cold in the late stages of the marathon. Chaz, one of the front desk staff, accomodated my request without hesitation. Thanks, Chaz! The gatorade was good and cold still at Mile #20!

There is an Outback Steakhouse adjacent to the hotel and the front doors for the hotel and restaurant are literally within 100 yards of each other. There were some other options close to the hotel but I liked being able to take a 30 second walk to dinner!

All in all, this was a solid choice for a hotel since the host hotels for the marathon were sold out. It took me less than 10 minutes to leave the hotel, drive to downtown Baton Rouge and find a parking spot VERY close to the marathon's start/finish line.

Can't go wrong by staying here.

Room Tip: Wouldn't want to be, nor was I, in a room next to the ice machine on the second floor. It was a...

• I stayed at the Marriott Courtyard Baton Rouge Acadian Center @ 2421 S. Acadian Thruway, Baton Rouge (LA) for one night on business
• I have stayed at this property previously
• It appears to be an older property, but is clean and well maintained
• Room was fine: overall good physical condition and comfortable bed
• It has the updated Marriott Courtyard lobby with bristo restaurant and computer stations
• An Outback steak house is a short walk across the parking lot
• There are plenty of parking spaces (no charge) – no issue
• It is located in an office complex directly off an I-10 exit. If you face the I-10 highway, you will have noticeable road noise. If you face away from the I-10 highway, you will have some hushed highway noise
• Nice hotel convenient to I-10, but road noise can be an issue

No frills, but the place never disappoints. The rooms are clean, attractive, and comfortable. When I go to Baton Rouge, this is where I stay. One special recognition for this place is it was pouring rain and they gave me a free umbrella. Big points!

Stayed here during Thanksgiving. This was our fourth stay. This property has been relented updated with very attractive decor. The restaurant area provides lounge areas. Rooms were all updated to include granite baths and up to date linens. This is a very quiet hotel in a busy area. Service has also improved.

Room Tip: Rear of building is quieter

I stayed here 3 nights and had to work during my stay. I basically camped out in their very comfortable lobby and bistro in a booth built for business. I plugged my laptop in, had a private booth equipped with my own flat panel TV and comfortable seating. I never got so much work done before. It was a great setup.

The staff was very pleasant and helpful. The rooms were really nice, although did not have microwaves which I think is a must for a business style hotel. I also think breakfast needs to be included; their breakfast prices were a bit steep.

Overall a nice place!
