“Funky, nice, amazing value.”
Reviewed October 30, 2009

This is listed on this site as the Red Lion, it's now Radisson.
It has a very funky decor. We stayed on the 3rd floor and it had Sleep Number beds, full body showers, laminate floors, heavily textured walls and generally really interesting furnishings. It really was like a boutique hotel for one of the cheapest rates in the area. I've stayed in worse, big name hotels in Los Angeles for three or four times the price.
If you want a plain room and are going to be offended by something different you should keep looking. It is right next to the freeway and you can hear it.
A great find. I loved it.

I don’t stay at Radisson’s because of their inconsistency and made an exception becomes rooms were hard to find in Baton Rouge with an upcoming LSU football game and the rate seemed fair ($95).
This property is located right off the I-10 @ Acadian Thruway. This property has obviously gone through a major renovation recently. The lobby is hip and adjoins a small bar lounge area that is wide open. Lots of unique lighting and bright colors. This décor continues into the guest areas. My room on the third floor was a total surprise. Room was standard size, king Sleep Number bed, flat screen TV with the same use of lighting and color, textured walls and a hard wood floor. There was a work station near the window with a comfortable office chair. Free internet was provided and the connection was good. No interruptions or drops during my stay. The bathroom was even more of a surprise with a walk-in shower with a full body shower head system. Now that’s a first in any of the properties I have stayed at. The bathroom was equipped with some modern fixtures and a one piece glass vanity sink which was cool.
There were a couple of negatives, but not major. The heating/ac unit was a wall unit controlled by wall thermostat. The room was quite comfortable but the unit was loud when it cycled on. You think if we can send a man to the moon we can improve on this type of heating/cooling unit. My room faced the freeway and while the traffic didn’t bother me at night, don’t expect to sleep late. By 6:15am the traffic woke me up with its steady roar. Lastly, there were not enough electrical outlets in the room for a business traveler. The desk work station only had one plug!
Overall an exceptional stay. I recommend this property!
