Nice access to riverfront, good access to downtown, easy to get to the non traffic side of LSU campus. Staff was friendly. Investors in this hotel have apparently decided to mine this property and get what they can out of it without putting anything back. The rooms need updating badly, decor is old, beds old, carpet stained and torn. No HD TVs, old decor, dingy. You can tell it was a once proud property that is now just playing it out till the end. It will soon be another victim of poor ownership, poor management and lack of foresight. Its on a train track, so you will get a nice wake up call every morning.
The location, the view from our room, the quiet, well-appointed room, free parking, extensive free breakfast buffet! Front desk staff could be more welcoming.
Gated parking. There must have been a group of 40-50 individuals crowded around the front entrance while checking in, cars parked blocking traffic waiting to pick up employees. Later in evening, cops were called to break up the crowd. The employees seemed to have zero leadership and were there for a paycheck, when questions where asked to them the answers were short and rude. Once checked in, bathroom was dirty, hair and used dental floss on walls, mold appears to be around the top base of showers.
Location was convenient Room smelled like cigarettes even though it was "smoke free." I have asthma and there was nothing they could do about it. Not to mention there was cigarette burns on the bedside table and in the curtains. The Internet was extremely slow and the TV was at least 15 years old.
The staff was friendly and helpful The place was gross. Just dirty everywhere. Our room had stains on the walls and furniture. The bathroom was moldy and nasty with other folks hairs of all kinds, stains all over the bathroom, dust on the Kleenex box and hair dryer that also had hairs on it. Hairs on the "clean" towels. Broken light fixtures with the broken piece just leaning against the wall. The bathroom door handle was disgusting, stained with splashes of something and sticky. The shower was nasty with mold, hair, and lime rust all over the shower head. The popcorn ceiling was splotched with darkness from being a smoking room in the past. Pieces missing of furniture. The stand alone chair was covered in stains.
I liked how the staff was accommodating and upgraded us when our room reeked of smoke and was dirty. Our room was disgusting. For the high price I paid to stay there, it was filthy. Our room was almost unbearable with the smoke smell. The bathrooms were gross and needed a deep cleaning. The bathroom floor was also sticky. The breakfast was two thumbs down. The hallways and common areas were just below par. Overall cleanliness was terrible.
Never, ever again! Dirty, gross smells, dirty sheets. Just ew!
Nothing The smell of this hotel is horrendous. When you enter the lobby, there is a smell that attacks your nostrils. This place needs a thorough cleaning and an overall update. The staff is lazy and always have to be searched for. They sit around and chat as if they have not work to do. Security is a joke. I would never stay here again.
Price Not a variety of slot machines
Location and friendly staff Needs updating
Nothing Poor quality
The room was impeccable. The front desk, maid, luggage handler, and all phone reps were beyond friendly. I wish I had gotten their names for praise to the managers. Especially considering how busy they must of have been for the holiday, they went above and beyond. The view from our room (river) was perfect and the fireworks show from the pool deck gave me chills! The restaurant staff... Let's see. I placed a breakfast order to go about an hour before they stopped serving on July 4. All staff was wonderful, and I have no complaints. They went above and beyond. While the food was good (lacking much flavor, but cooked okay), the service got them a 30% tip on a to go order. On July 5, I dined alone and ordered the buffet. My 'server' must have partied a bit too hard the night before. All she served me - without me having to ask - was the check, which she brought as soon as I got my food, right after I had to ask for my first water a second time. The buffet had a nice spread, but I guess she assumed that since she didn't have to serve my food, I wouldn't need service at all. I had to ask for refills twice more. She got a 10% tip, and I should have just given that directly to the busser. I was confused about the pool. They gave all of these rules about passes for guests, with it being the 4th. So, I followed the rules and turned 4 people away (my parents and their two out of town friends) from watching with us at the pool. During the show, we were surrounded by loud, obnoxious people NOT WEARING THE 'REQUIRED' WRIST BANDS. if they're going to set restrictions, they should stick to them. Obviously those who don't follow, will also tend to be disrespectful to those around them. Also, not the hotel's fault, I blame parents... The kids were in the pool ALL DAY splashing everyone. I know my mom wouldn't have stood for that. And maybe they should have someone by the pool making sure that all guests can enjoy the amenities, rather than just the children and the parents who used the pool as included childcare. Also, I found out later that the free buffet that was to be for paying guests was in the lobby and the staff said free food from 7-9. We all assumed it was by the pool since the wrist bands were for the pool area. So, we missed out on that and paid for the pool deck food, which was okay.
The rooms were clean with attractive, fresh decor and the breakfast buffet was excellent. The rooms were rather small.
Loved the location, ease of getting around downtown BR, Live after Five was awesome. Need new pillows. Had a great time.
Very clean and comfortable , staff was very helpful
The maintainable crew was amazing and deserve a raise The room was to small for the money I paid
great downtown Baton Rouge location My room had no cold water, only hot. And the buttons did not work on the telephone.
Really great on the first night. We had the pool to ourselves. It got a bit crowded after that but understandably since it was the holiday weekend. Overall a good place to stay --- but I found the city itself a little depressing! Overall a good place to stay --- but I found the city itself a little depressing!
Super clean and elegant. The bed was insanely comfortable, and the staff was amazing. Everyone we interacted with was so nice! We would definitely visit again!
The hotel is in a great spot downtown. We woke up Saturday morning and walked to the farmers market for breakfast. The bed was very comfortable. The room was quiet and clean. No refrigerator. No bottles of water(didn't care if they would have been $4).
Visiting LSU with son who is a rising Freshman, we couldn't of picked a better hotel. Close to LSU and all good places in BR. Downtown is revitalizing with open bars and restaurants close by. The bar and restaurant at TheWatermark is top notch and thriving. We will be back!
