The hotel is housed in a mansion dating back to 1818. It is surrounded by twenty-six acres of beautifully landscaped gardens bursting with flowers, a white bridge gracing a small clear pond, Mississippi songbirds, pebble paths and moss-draped oak trees. The guestrooms feature priceless art and antiques, while providing modern comfort. Nights sparkle under candlelight and crystal, during five-course dinner featuring gourmet cuisine and fine wines. The hotel is located close to Mississippi River and Isle of Capri riverboat casino. It offers easy access to Alexandria International Airport (AEX).
