There is a complimentary breakfast and a swimming pool at the hotel. There are many restaurants nearby.
We have reserved a block of rooms until September 17, 2019, including studios ($109 plus tax per night), one bedroom with king bed ($119 plus tax per night), and one bedroom with double beds ($138 plus tax per night). Please contact the hotel at (225) 456-5430 and mention that you are reserving for the South Central Conference Mesoamerica (code: SCM).
There are many other hotels in Baton Rouge. If you are driving to LSU, please park in the Union Square Parking Garage (located behind Barnes and Noble) which is a short walk to the Howe-Russell-Geoscience Complex. Although the SCCM will be held during LSU’s “Fall Holiday” (no classes), the university will still be open and has restricted parking.
