Book your stay for the 2019 Louisiana Housing Conference through our partner and host hotel, Hilton in Downtown Baton Rouge. Discounted rooms are available for conference attendees through the reservation link here.
The special room rate will be available until March 11th or until the group block is sold-out, whichever comes first. For easy access and travel to and from the conference, we recommend selecting a hotel in or near Downtown Baton Rouge.
Visitors to Baton Rouge won’t want to miss the downtown experience. It’s a thriving, flavorful, historic area on the Mississippi riverfront that reflects the heart and soul of Louisiana. It’s home to busy office towers, theaters, museums, elegant hotels, dining and nightlife, beautiful scenery, trails for walking, running or riding and a scenic town square where you can attend exciting events, play chess or just enjoy a cup of coffee in our favorable Louisiana weather.
Offering world-class performing arts inside the Shaw Center is the Manship Theatre, an intimate 325-seat venue that features a steady rotation of dance, comedy, film and nationally known music acts, with a focus on jazz. A commons area in front of the Shaw Center has interactive fountains, space for events, immediate access to downtown attractions, and a direct view of the magnificent Old State Capitol—now a Louisiana history museum, complete with a gift shop.
In between the two is Galvez Plaza, with a stage for live music and the international award-winning Crest, a 65,000-pound, 35-foot-tall, steel, curved sculpture that doubles as a performance stage cover. As well as playing a starring role in outdoor concerts presented at the plaza, the Crest has become a symbol of the new downtown vibe and a tourist attraction in its own right.
