Where should I stay to visit Tulane and LSU?

I'm driving in on a Monday, and leaving early Friday. We have Tues/Wed/Thurs to visit 2 campuses and spend a full day in New Orleans. Not sure if I should stay in NOLA all 4 nights. Budget is an issue, so if I can save some money by staying in Baton Rouge for a night I would do that. Not sure which days we'll be visting schools yet.

I would stay out on St. Charles near the Tulane campus. There's a Hampton and Best Western out there. You can take the street car downtown to the FQ for dinner or go to one of the fine restaurants Uptown. Clancy's is a great one. I would drive to BR for your visit there and stay that night then head back to NOLA.

There are some nice hotels at Exit 158 at College Drive.

Best Western Plus Richmond Inn and Suites @ 5668 Hilton, Baton Rouge, LA 225 – 924 – 6500.


Hampton Inn @ 4646 Constitution Avenue, Baton Rouge, LA 225 – 926 – 9990.


Double Tree By Hilton @ 4964 Constitution Avenue, Baton Rouge, LA 800 – 652 – 7160.


Holiday Inn @ 4848 Constitution Avenue, Baton Rouge, LA 225 – 448 – 2030.

Also directly across the street from Tulane is the Parkview Guest House. Its very reasonably priced & includes a full breakfast, right on the streetcar line; Audubon Park is right next door. Lots of little restaurants through the area and around the bend.

We've stayed there several times and have always been happy. The proprietors don't hover like a B&B.

To get a really good feel for the LSU campus, it may be fun to stay at the Cook Hotel, the only hotel located directly on campus. Tiger Town is nearby with lots of restaurants..The Chimes, Serrano's (Mexican), Five Guys Hamburgers, Chipotle Grill, Louie's Diner and more.

New Orleans is an easy drive 1.5 hours away if you decide not to spend the night.
