205 Rooms / 30 Suites
Drive down Baton Rouge’s bucolic River Road as it follows the gentle curves of the Mississippi and you would never guess you might bump into an epic luxury hotel and casino complex on this quiet two-lane stretch.
Rising in a 12-story monolithic tower above a 74,000 square foot casino, L’Auberge Casino & Hotel Baton Rouge sits on 575 acres that used to be two plantations overlooking the river just a few miles south of Louisiana State University. The hotel’s interior is decked out like a cozy, amber-lit French lodge laden with fireplaces, wrought-iron gates, artisanal glasswork, rich paneling, and furniture upholstered in reds against a backdrop of earth tones.
Open since September 2012, the hotel’s 205 spacious guest rooms, which include 30 suites ranging in size from almost 800 to 1,000 square feet each.
Have an Abita beer or a Sazerac at the open-air bar alongside the beautiful rooftop pool overlooking the river, followed by a spa treatment in the privacy of one of the outdoor cabanas a few steps away. Once you’re nice and relaxed, head downstairs to try your luck in the casino with nearly 1,500 slot machines and 50 game tables, including a poker room.
