Wrapping up a long day on the road, heading back home to New Orleans, exhaustion took hold and I realized I had to stop for the night, despite being so close to my destination. I saw the Marriott off the highway, and headed there. The women at the front desk were incredibly helpful and friendly. I had a key in my hand in less than five minutes. The next morning, when my bill was slipped under my door, I discovered that (perhaps out of pity, I don't know) they had given me a 20% discount.
The room was large, and maybe the cleanest hotel room I have ever been in. The bed was very comfortable. The woman who answered the phone and took down my request for a wake-up call was extremely courteous, and the call came on time.
The only negative is that the hotel is right next to I-10, and we could hear the traffic all night, even up on the 9th floor. I suppose it was no different from what you would hear staying a downtown hotel in any major city, but one does not necessarily associate Baton Rouge with unmitigated hustle and bustle, particularly at all hours of the night. And, in fact, I have stayed at the Baton Rouge Hilton, which is downtown, and did not have the same experience with outside noise. But all in all, a minor blip to a wonderful stay when I needed it most.
