Stayed here on the July 4th holiday...very pleasant surprise.
Rooms: We were in a one room suite - similar in layout to an embassy suites room. Slightly larger than I expected. Very well kept & appointed, had a new, almost elegant feel. Lots of LSU memorabilia. Good kitchen & fridge.
Hotel: Five story hotel, again - clean, new, very well managed. Breakfast buffet was good - nice dining room and large TVs. Shaquille O'Neal pool was a little small - not sure Shaq himself could stretch out in it.
Location: Right in the middle of the LSU campus, which is just a couple of miles south of downtown. Nice quiet location, at least in the summer. Would be the ideal place to stay during football season. Only potential drawback is that you'll need a car - no restaurants or bars in the hotel or the vicinity (except for breakfast).
Overall - excellent alternative to large chain hotels. Highly recommended-
