So, let’s talk about a hotel. I love a classic hotel, and I love when a major brand takes over a classic and restores it to it’s original opulence. Whenever I am in Baton Rouge, I stay at the Hilton Downtown. This hotel is a classic, a blast from the past in the best way. When I walk in, I feel like I’ve entered someone’s finely manicured living room. You are surrounded by chairs, couches, and tables that evoke The Renaissance, with the most lovely chandelier above. The restaurant has a well rounded menu, and I for one have to brag about the 6oz Filet Mignon they serve; please try it if you eat red meat. But, let’s go up to the room. As I exit the elevator, there are lovely touches like classic rotary phones near the elevators. This time I had a room with a balcony that overlooks the river, if I can take my eyes off the stylish classic charm of my room. If you like old fashioned opulence, stay here; cheers.
