Three miles northeast of the airfield and six miles west of downtown, our hotel is across the Red River from Pineville in central Louisiana. A mix of cultures combined with Civil War landmarks create a relaxed, yet lively, atmosphere that’s steeped in history. The area recognizes our national defense prowess with the Louisiana Maneuvers & Military Museum as well as our iconic plantation heritage. Cajun and Creole cuisine are the inspiration for mouth-watering plates of seafood and classic meat pies. If the great outdoors is what you are looking for, explore the state’s only national forest, Kisatchie; bayous and cypress trees; and rolling OakWing and Audubon Trail golf courses. Nearby businesses include Boise Cascade, Proctor and Gamble, Dresser Industries and Cleco. Our hotel is just a short three-mile drive to the Riverfront Convention Center and 50 minutes to Fort Polk.
