I watched the re-opening of this downtown Baton Rouge Hotel lastnight on a local television telecast. I must say that they took what was a total disaster and made it into something beautiful. If you've ever been to Tsunami's balcony and looked off to the right you saw a big torn up building that used to be a hotel that Huey P. Long and even Fidel Castro stayed in. For decades it was a big piece of junk. Now with the renovation of downtown Baton Rouge its once again a very nice looking hotel. Read about it here
Downtown Baton Rouge Is Here
They've done alot to rebuild and bring people back into downtown Baton Rouge and its worked. Many of my friends and I frequent the downtown establishments now days where as 5 years back we'd stay away from the area. They've made the area safe, created weekend events and created a very pleasent atmosphere through improvements and new construction.
