Guest rooms could use an update
This Hilton markets itself as a "historic hotel," and recent guests do indeed feel that they've stepped into the past during their stay. The furnishings found in each of the rooms are reminiscent of those used when the property was known as the Heidelberg Hotel and Capitol House and frequented by Kingfish politician Huey Long. There's a touch of modernity as well, from the complimentary Internet access to the MP3 alarm clocks in all of the rooms. Travelers also appreciate that this hotel is less than 3 miles north of both the Capitol building and Louisiana State University. Recent lodgers suggest that a day spent exploring the old town Baton Rouge area (with complimentary transportation provided by the hotel) is best bookended by a meal at the hotel's Kingfish Grill. And if you're a Hilton Honors member, remember that you can earn or cash in points here for additional stay benefits.
