Baton Rouge hotel re-opens

IHG (InterContinental Hotels Group) has opened the Hotel Indigo Baton Rouge Downtown Riverfront in Louisiana following a US$25m renovation.

Once known as the historic Hotel King before being converted to a dormitory during the Depression and then a state office building, the seven-storey building traces its roots back to the 1920s.  In 2009, the transformation was begun to restore the building to an upscale boutique hotel reflective of the surrounding community. 

Featuring 93 rooms and panoramic views of the Mississippi River or historic Baton Rouge, the hotel maintains much of its original architecture.

Located at the corner of Convention and Lafayette streets – just 400 yards from the Mississippi River – the hotel is just minutes from the central business district.  It is within walking distance of the city’s Riverfront Convention Center as well as restaurants, shops and cultural attractions. www.hotelindigo.com
