Let the good times roll when you stay at one of our Holiday Inn® hotels in Baton Rouge. Follow the bends in the mighty Mississippi River, immerse yourself in Cajun culture and get your fill of spicy crawfish.
Our hotels in Baton Rouge make it easy to experience the flavor of Louisiana Cajun culture, a zesty tangle of Native-American, African-American, French and Spanish influences. That cultural gumbo is reflected in the collection at Louisiana State Museum, where exhibits range from a 48-foot shrimp trawler to Fats Domino musical memorabilia. Take a free tour of the marbled interior of the Louisiana State Capitol, built during the turbulent tenure of Governor Huey Long and the nation's tallest capitol building. Afterward, wander the capitol's immaculate gardens, ripe with roses and bougainvillea. Our Baton Rouge hotels are near elegant Nottoway Plantation, where it's easy to envision the Grand White Ballroom filled with fluttering lace fans and swaying hoop skirts.
Just minutes away from our Baton Rouge hotels, the Mississippi riverfront buzzes with restaurants serving savory Cajun specialties like shrimp etouffée (a thick stew over rice). Spicy boudin sausage is sold at local cafes, markets and even gas stations. Finish with warm bread pudding for dessert. Downtown Baton Rouge also has a wealth of dining options. Dig into a pile of spicy steamed crawfish and end your evening dancing the Cajun two-step at a local club.
Book a stay at our Holiday Inn Baton Rouge hotels in spring to experience Cajun Country Mardi Gras, or in autumn when Louisiana State University hits the football field. Whenever you visit, you'll find the city's trademark hospitality in season.
First room had a mildew odor and we were quickly and pleasantly given an upgrade to a new room by the manager in duty.[Less]

Best Staff and lodging ever
By VA Golden Girl
Thank you for absolutely the best stay ever while on a vacation. .From the time of arrival to the time of departure, you could not have been more accommodating and friendly to our group or any of the[More] others we saw staying there. The front desk was awesome.. the bellhops were absotutely fabulous.. the manager always made it his duty to stop by and say hi, ask if everything was okay.. wanting to know what else if anything was needed. The maintenance staff for the minor issue we had, was on point. Words cannot express the pleasure had while staying at this facility. They should all be commended for their work ethics and courtesy shown to their guests.. Absolutely stay here if you are going to this area.[Less]
Only there overnight
By Mom and Daughter
We only stayed overnight and did not use any facilities. The staff was extremely nice and welcoming. The room was ok, a bit small. Room was mostly clean, but not as much as I would expect. Shower had[More] hair on wall and glass doors not cleaned fully.[Less]
