Accommodations for weddings, large parties and even the MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) represent the versatility of events that take place at the Belle, which hosted the Mistletoe Market this past fall," said the Belle's Sales Manager, Deon Coates. "For example, we are looking forward to welcoming the Krewe of Romany, the Artemis Krewe and the Krewe of Lyonesse for their 2016 Mardi Gras celebrations, which will be held here." "I would say that our Banquet Chef Larry Warren, and his staff are culinary wizards who have been responsible for creating dishes that are not only original in their presentations but also deliciously prepared. Larry oversees all the meals for the various banquets and scheduled conferences that are held here, and he garners lavish praise," explained Marketing Manager Letrece Griffin. The executive food staff also consists of Director of Food and Beverage, David Utley, who has over 20 years of experience in multi-outlet, high end culinary execution, and Executive Sous Chef Casey Guy. The Belle offers a variety of food choices for hotel guests. "There is also a lobby breakfast bar buffet in the morning, and a full restaurant, Shucks on the Levee, that has one of the most captivating views of the Mississippi River in Baton Rouge." According to the General Manager Patrick Browne, there are 520 employees who deserve credit for making the Belle an icon in the world of entertainment and hotels. "Of that number, 92% of these are Louisianans, hence our commitment to the diverse community as an equal opportunity employer and an asset to the economic stability of the state," said Browne. "We have a remarkable group of employees, some of whom have been with the Belle over 20 years. We strive to enrich their employment and have made a practice of promoting from within." In the tradition of Southern charm and impeccable credentials, the Belle of Baton Rouge welcomes guests to their "home away from home," and offers such things as valet curbside service, free guest parking and a gracious and warm greeting. The soaring Capital Atrium, unique to the Belle, embraces every season with its dramatic d├ęcor. Beautifully clad partygoers and exquisite brides and their guests revel in the glamour and history of the beautiful paned glass ceilings. Expansive conference and corporate meeting rooms, while spacious, remain attractive and comfortable. Guests who like to explore a truly Southern city will find the Belle a brief walk to downtown and the local color that Baton Rouge is so famous for. The countless amenities that are offered every day and for every season are reason enough to choose the Belle of Baton Rouge.
