Lesbiangaybisexual and transgender (LGBT) rights in the United States have evolved in recent decades. However, LGBT Americans may still face some legal and many social challenges not experienced by non-LGBT residents, particularly in states with large conservative populations, such as in the Deep South; in rural areas; and in some Native American tribal nations.

U.S. federal law does not explicitly include protections against discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity. In June 2020, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that sexual orientation and gender identity are included under “sex” as a prohibited ground of employment discrimination in the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

Same-sex sexual activity is legal in Louisiana, and same-sex marriage has been recognized in the state since June 2015 as a result of the Supreme Court’s decision in Obergefell v. Hodges.
Baton Rouge has a long history of being a  gay friendly town and in downtown we can find a few gay friendly bars as well as George’s Place or Splash Nightclub are  most famous gay friendly bars in Baton Rouge, LA.
Baton Rouge is a city on the Mississippi River, and the capital of Louisiana.

Hotel Indigo is the perfect place to stay in Baton Rouge. Perfect location to stay in downtown. Nice stylish hotel. I was upgraded to a large suite. No complaints at all. Handy if you are going to an LSU game as the bus makes stops here to go to the game.

What an amazing little gem. This is a beautifully charming perfect little boutique hotel. We were on the 6th floor giving us perfect views of the water and city. The bed was one of the most comfortable I have slept in. The rooms are full of nicer amenities and attention to details are apparent, real coffee mugs, better toiletries, practical space in the room.

The hotel has bikes available if you want to ride around to see the sights. Location is perfect, you can walk to so many places and things right from the hotel. The river, museums, bars etc. The team members are all friendly and seem to really enjoy working there. Tal and his restaurant/lounge team went above and beyond and we really enjoyed the food and drink selection. Breakfast and dinner never disappointed.

Enjoyed the BEST girls getaway for the Spanish Town Mardi Gras parade. THIS is the place to stay, directly on parade route, nice bar on site and great coffee shop across the street. I’ve seen many hotels where staff could care less, but these fine folks went out of their way to call each guest by name and offer much helpful advice. Downtown Baton Rouge has a true gem in Hotel Indigo. Can’t wait to go back next year!

The hotel is nice, a bit smaller than it looks in the photos. The offer valet parking upon arrival, the staff was very friendly and courteous. The have a small bar and restaurant off of the lobby, the restaurant served as breakfast included in the price of the stay. The food was good, definitely worth the value included in the stay. Not a quick breakfast like at other hotels. The location is great, walking distance to the river, restaurants and parks. There are some bars in the area and also casinos.

They were clean with modern finishes. The hotel offered good value and a great location. Just a quick walk to many attractions.

This is a beautiful building in a most scenic and historic location. Situated along the Mississippi river levee system, passing ocean-going vessels give one the impression of being on an ocean cruise. The staff, management to housekeeping, all, make you feel that they truly appreciate you being there.

Great location close to river, museums & River Center. Stayed on the executive level…the access to the executive lounge was great! The staff go out of their way to help, which is something you don’t see at hotels anymore! Nice to experience a high level of service…felt like an experience, versus just a place to sleep. I guess because it’s a renovated historic hotel, the rooms aren’t huge, but they make good use of the space. Riverview rooms are an added bonus.

A beautifully maintained hotel located downtown Baton Rouge. Walking distance to many good restaurants and all downtown attractions. Small rooms that are very well maintained. Two onsite restaurants. Friendly and professional staff members serving all areas of the hotel.

Super great location on the river front and downtown area, easy access to get in/out – Super friendly staff and property is very secure and easy to navigate around. We stayed here in the past sir Game Day Weekends and it’s very convenient and just a great place to hang out and relax.

Stopped here to break up our journey from Houston to New Orleans. What a surprise – lovely hotel, friendly, efficient staff, great location. However, the biggest shock was finding an executive lounge providing complimentary wine and beer – almost unheard of in our experience of travelling the USA for over 30 years. Torrie was the perfect hostess and genuinely treats the lounge as if welcoming guests to her home. Shame we weren’t staying longer.

Onto the rooms themselves, which were comfortable and like your regular Hilton room: good quality, done well, with fluffy towels and excellent complimentary toiletries. The free wifi was also good – too many hotels these days charge for something which should be included, but not here. One side of the hotel (as well as the pool) also has views out over the Mississippi, which makes for stunning views. It’s well located, on the river and within walking distance to the various sights (which we did, with our additional day).

We ate in the hotel that evening and the food was excellent – certainly rated up there amongst the better meals of the trip we had been lucky to have. Added to this was the wonderful bar staff – particularly Kelly, who was a really lovely, friendly, handsome, sweet and chatty gentleman. Certainly the second noteworthy member of staff at this hotel and deserving of high praise for excellent customer service skills and genuinely seeming to care. Very nice guy.

Overall, I’d very much recommend a stay at this hotel. Even though – and perhaps because – we hadn’t planned to stay here, it came as a wonderful surprise and impressed with great staff and a high quality stay. I’d certainly recommend staying here to others if you happen to be in Baton Rouge.

Settle into luxury at WATERMARK Baton Rouge, Autograph Collection, a luxury hotel in downtown Baton Rouge, Louisiana offering timeless design and modern amenities near USS Kidd and Manship Theater at the Shaw Center for the Arts.

This hotel has a bunch of personality. The decor and art give it such a cool vibe. It is an old building… maybe a former hotel?? Not sure but it is updated with a industrial flair and a twist of modern. The concrete beams in the rooms are so cool, the closet is wire mesh and see through, the bathroom door is a fogged glass barn door, the shower has white and black tile with all gold or brass fixtures and the brass/gold fixtures are throughout the entire room.

The hotel halls and the rooms are dark – from the paint, decor, the art, and fabrics. It is masculine including the smell of their products, they are wood. Don’t come here expecting all white/gray color schemes! The area is a little downtown district, close to the water, the LSU campus, and food/bars/shops. The staff was AMAZING!

The valet attendants were wonderful and very helpful! The room was very clean and didn’t take long at all to get more towels. I would def recommend and would come back if ever passing through.

Hotel was fantastically situated in the heart of downtown Baton Rouge with nearby art museums, shops, restaurants, business centers and more; all set against backdrop of the Mississippi river.
The entire hotel is obviously an old bank building with all of the pomp of marble and high ceilings as well as fun details originally to the bank vaults.

The check in desk is a little small but the lobby rest./bar area is quite a grand space. In addition to the full dining room there is all a cafe style coffee shop which we found to perfect combination of hot prepared breakfast with quick service.

The elevators are a bit tight and somewhat slow. They can hold around 8 people max (small for modern standards) but again full of charm.Maybe original to the building?

Our room was on the 12th floor. Love the modern bank and industrial decor. Very spacious entry into room with large vanity area. (maybe a little too dark). The toilet and shower was amazing.

The food was good too. I would recommend the Footosh Salad w/tabouli and grilled salmon (add on)
The room was clean and spacious. I was on the 12th floor and didn’t have any issues with noise from the street, the hallways or the guests in the next room. The hotel was very quiet on the days I stayed.

I would definitely recommend this hidden jewel to anyone staying in BR.
