Storied Tradition meets Modern Features At Our Baton Rouge Hotel 

The moment you step foot onto our picturesque property you’ll be wrapped up in a feeling of Tiger Tradition.  You’ll be greeted by the friendliest staff in the city who will likely feel like family by the time you depart.  Our walls are adorned by memories from years past including benefactor Lod Cook with numerous U.S. Presidents as they dedicated the hotel.   We are also home to original George Rodrigues paintings including an iconic Blue Dog wearing the infamous white LSU football jersey and one from Rodrigues’ personal collection commissioned for President Ronald Reagan. Our hotel and adjacent conference center sit on the beautiful LSU lakes which provides a surreal escape and a scenic course with 10 miles of lakefront paths for walking, running, or biking.  We are a quick 5 minute drive to some of the trendiest areas of town for dinner and socializing including the Historic  Merchant’s District and Mid-City.  Our hotel is home to the LSU football Tigers on home game weekends, hundreds of LSU parents throughout the school year, and countless business and leisure guests.  All are welcome here.  Let us make The Cook Hotel at LSU your home away from home.
