Miss Ginger's travels have taken her to two cities this weekend, and so far, both have been a delight!
She started the trip with a couple of days of duty in Baton Rouge, but this week, instead of staying in the run down Marriott with the terrible freeway noise, Queen G and her coworkers stayed at the brand new Renaissance Baton Rouge, which was a truly lovely experience!
The ultra-modern lobby is the first inkling that the hotel is something special, and the bar, restaurant, and guest rooms don't dissapoint, either! Subtle local touches, like the use of an alligator hide motif on wallpaper, textiles, and other surfaces, along with custom designed "cajun dictionary" wallpaper in the guest bathrooms, allow the hotel to maintain a clean, modern feel while winking at the traditions and motifs of the market! Queen Ginger had not previously stayed in a Renaissance property, but will certainly seek them out in the future!
The Roosevelt, and the Sazerac Bar, are truly among the many treasures in New Orleans, and must certainly be a part of your next trip to this vibrant, newly-energized city!
