EMBASSY SUITES HOTEL — BATON ROUGE MODERN, APPROACHABLE ELEGANCE. EMBASSY SUITES spent $14 million dollars renovating our hotel with one goal in mind: providing a high-end contemporary feel that is never intimidating or off-putting. While many new and renovated hotels place form over function for effect, that’s not us. Comfort and approachability are what we’re about. We don’t have any guest rooms. We only have 500-square-foot suites with separate living and sleeping areas. We want you to feel at home and our oversized suites do just that. Being a full-service Hilton product, we know a thing or two about meeting planning. We have more than 7,000 square feet of meeting space, accommodating a boardroom setting for 10 or a 400-person training session. We have comprehensive audio visual capabilities,

high bandwidth internet, and ample free and easily accessible parking. You can also earn Hilton Honors points for meetings you place, getting you one step closer to that well-deserved vacation. Find out why we’re consistently rated one of the best meeting venues in Baton Rouge.

IT’S ALL ABOUT THE FOOD. WE’D PUT our five-star chef up against any in the city—or the entire state of Louisiana for that matter. Chef Steve is the former head of culinary for Hyatt Hotels and brings a breadth of skills and enormous amounts of creativity to every dish we serve. We offer a wide range of meeting and event food options, all prepared onsite, that range from high-value to breathtakingly extraordinary. Whether you choose offerings from our broad

published menu, or want to create your own custom menu in consultation with Chef Steve, we can promise that your guests will rave about their dining experience.

YOUR HOTEL’S DÉCOR SHOULD NEVER WORK HARDER THAN ITS STAFF. SERVICE. SERVICE. SERVICE. While many hotels distract you with ornate and overwrought aesthetics, our staff would rather impress you with its attentiveness to your needs. There’s no more important stay or event than yours. We understand that and strive to deliver an experience that suits your style. Want us at your beck and call? Just ask. No two guests have the same expectations and it’s our job to tailor the experience we deliver to match each and every unique need. For a little more than you’d pay for a rectangular box, we offer you so much more. ■
