We had a late night check-in and the desk clerk, Justin, was very efficient and friendly. The lobby was extremely spacious and beautiful with a small fireplace lounge area. Our room was clean, comfortable and tastefully decorated with updated furnishings. There was an added touch of a quiet ceiling fan in our room--something not usually seen in hotel rooms. The free breakfast buffet was held in the sports bar so there were lots of tvs everywhere which my husband enjoyed. The food was wonderful, plentiful and delicious and the wait staff was very welcoming, friendly and attentive. I returned later to get a coffee refill only to find the dining area was getting cleaned up. One of the ladies very happily refilled my coffee cup and did so as if she were waiting for me to come back. The checkout clerk was also very informative and friendly.
This hotel is near a business district and LSU so I'm sure it would get quite busy during football season.
I would stay here again!
