BATON ROUGE, La., June 26 // PRNewswire // -- Radisson(R) Hotels & Resorts today announced the addition of the Radisson Hotel Baton Rouge, a 132-room hotel located at 2445 S.

"This hotel represents the vibrant new identity we're building for the Radisson brand, combining a contemporary, dynamic atmosphere with our distinctive 'Yes I Can!' service that guests will experience from the moment they walk through our doors," said Fredrik Korallus, executive vice president and chief operating officer for Radisson Hotels & Resorts.

All of the spacious rooms feature an array of contemporary amenities including Sleep Number(R) beds, offering guests adjustable firmness, goose down duvets, high-speed Internet access, high definition television and complimentary USA Today newspaper. Each guestroom floor features its own cultural design element and the hotel specialty suites offer five styles - Executive, Acapulco Ambassador, Tropical Rain Forest, La Cocina, and Grand Cabo Presidential - each with its own distinct design to provide stylish comfort.

The hotel offers more than 5,000 square feet of meeting space, including three separate banquet rooms that can accommodate up to 440 people.
