Tucked into the suburbs of Baton Rouge, 80 miles from New Orleans, is SpringHill Suites Baton Rouge South. As The New York Times explains, "this laid-back Mississippi River town offers a unique appeal", provided by a "dynamic musical heritage" and "rich culinary history".
The hotel's location puts you less than a 15-minute drive from the state capital's downtown area and Louisiana State University, and ensures easy access to major freeways, such as the I-10 and I-12. It's also less than two miles from the Mall of Louisiana, which offers a movie theatre, restaurants and shopping options like Macy’s and Dillard’s. It wouldn’t be a visit to Louisiana without a stop by the wildlife area of Bluebonnet Swamp Nature Center. 10 minutes by car from the hotel, it's filled with live animal exhibits, forests and acres of swampland.
Facilities on site include a fitness room and an indoor pool with a whirlpool for languid relaxation after a day of sightseeing. Be sure to load up a plate at the complimentary breakfast buffet served each morning. The spread includes items like toast, oatmeal, pastries, juice, coffee, yogurt and fruit. Hot items are also available and there's an outdoor patio for dining in warmer weather.
Retire in the evening to your suite, where a kitchenette -- equipped with a mini fridge, microwave and coffee maker -- is on hand for in-room meals. There's also free Wi-Fi access, and a separate sitting area for evenings in. Guests can stock up on provisions at the on-site convenience store, which is well supplied with snacks.
