The hotel is adjacent to the Shaw Center and the River Center Convention Center, it is less than five minutes from the Louisiana State Capitol and it is only three miles from Louisiana State University. We are pleased to provide our guests with a smoke-free facility. The hotel offers a complimentary shuttle within a five mile radius of the hotel. Our 290 elegantly appointed guest rooms have been designed with all of the comforts and conveniences of modern hospitality, while maintaining the luster and appeal of the original building facades. The third floor pool and garden deck overlooks the Mississippi River, as do the two river-view ballrooms. The Hilton hotel was a significant part of Louisiana's colorful political history. From Huey P. Long to John F. Kennedy, the hotel was home to American Presidents, glamorous celebrities and generations of weddings, conventions, and loyal business travelers. Historic Baton Rouge exhibits the warmth of Southern hospitality. From a taste of Cajun Country to the west, to the romance and charm of Plantation Country to the east, visitors to Baton Rouge delight in the seamless merger of past and present.
