One of Louisiana's premier boutique hotels, our Baton Rouge home away from home offers everything you could want from your stay in Creole country. Great food, of course, is a given around here. And you can't get much better than in our very own Tallulah Crafted Food and Wine Bar, where Executive Chef Andy Parson is proud to serve some of the best seafood in the area. The stylish Southern décor is everything you'd expect from a Renaissance hotel, while the 256 guest rooms and huge ballroom are the definition of elegance. Our local Navigator Allison is also on hand to tell you all about the incredible local wildlife, just a short journey from our door, including the must-see Bluebonnet Swamp Nature Center.
A classic farm-to-table restaurant with locally grown produce and fresh seafood.
This is a truly local, made-from-scratch menu. Freshly rolled pasta, house-baked bread…I cannot say enough good things about Nino’s. I’ve never had something that I didn’t like! Their menu is known to change depending on the season and available produce making every time like the first time.

Off the beaten path neighborhood bar. A local favorite for over 50 years.
Locals have probably driven by it a hundred times and not known it was there, yet the Patio Lounge has been in business for over 50 years and has changed very little in that time. Truly the "Cheers" of Baton Rouge and is the perfect place to bump elbows with locals and as the Patio's patriarch (now in his 90s) would say, "Knock a couple times and tell a few lies." Self-described "adult daycare."
