L’Auberge unveils revamped rooms, suites

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

L'Auberge Casino Resort formally unveiled 754 of 1,000 total newly renovated hotel rooms on Tuesday, including new suites and amenity upgrades. The renovations cost more than $20 million.

L'Auberge Senior Vice President/General Manager Keith W. Henson spoke at the unveiling.

"Over four million people come through the doors of L'Auberge each year and we are so excited to be able to offer a product that is the best of the best," Henson said.

Lake Charles Mayor Randy Roach and SWLA Chamber President George Swift also spoke.

"When you talk about $20-million in renovations - I don't know if those words even go together. How do you renovate for just $20-million ... that's a lot of money," said Roach.

"This really is a must see place of the Gulf coast and we are proud to have y'all in Southwest Louisiana," said Swift.

Casino officials said phase one of the renovation totals more than $20 million, utilizing local labor. Officials said phase two begins in September with completion of all remaining tower rooms and suites.

Officials said a revamp was in order. They said most of the rooms had not been updated since the hotel opened in 2005.

"This renovation just continues to support our dedication to Southwest Louisiana and to make sure we are reinvesting in our product and making sure we reinvest in retail, restaurants and the hotel. This is a total resort and it is known as the premiere destination in Louisiana and we are not going to let that get away from us," Henson said.

L'Auberge donated some of the used hotel fixtures, including beds, chairs, mirrors, televisions and art, to the Habitat For Humanity store.

    The homestead exemption means homeowners don't pay parish property taxes on the first $75,000 of the value of their residence. A local man complains only half the exemption was applied to his bill. But Calcasieu Assessor Wendy Aguillard says it was a clerical error that happened when he added his wife as an owner of his  home. "We've already corrected that office mistake and she and he will now have full homestead for $7500 together." To tell if you're gett...
