Unusual setting for a hotel, located on a plantation built before the Civil War. The mansion and grounds are well maintained and the tour of the mansion was fun and informative. The price of the tour was included in the room fee when you stayed at the facility -- a real perk. Our room was up a steep flight of stairs, that information would be useful if included in room descriptions. Our room and bathroom were comfortable and modernized but with period-reminiscent pieces also in the room. These pieces were attractive but ornate and could have done with better dusting. The food in both café and restaurant were delicious and the staff were very attentive. The landscaping was quite attractive and across from the Mississippi River. It is about 20 miles from Baton Rouge and there is not a lot to do locally but it was a very restful and relaxing place to stay. Apparently, the venue is the scene for many weddings and large gatherings. Television reception, it was football season, was good. Wifi was inconsistent.
