The 754 newly remodeled guest rooms at L’Auberge Casino Resort Lake Charles exude warmth and southern hospitality—about what you’d expect from a property inspired by Texas Hill Country. The 26-story resort sits nobly on 242-acres of wide green yonder in between New Orleans and Houston on the Contraband Bayou. Including private villas and suites, over 1,000 high-end rooms are up for grabs.

A porte cochere with a lantern cupola greets guests at the entrance of the property. Once inside, a fireplace lobby lounge rises three stories high to a beamed ceiling with a ring of balconies layering up along the way. Interiors are characterized by stone, wood and turn-of-the-century arts and crafts furniture.

The resort’s rustic-themed 70,000-sf casino is just beyond the lobby where 70 table games and 1,600 slot machines cause waves of excitement beneath vibrant vaulted ceilings. The serious gamblers in your group can get their game on in a 2,000-sf high-stakes Poker Room, which also includes tableside massages.

Part-time gamblers will appreciate the recently renovated High Limit Salon, which offers a plush VIP bar, lounge area and a variety of table games and slot machines. Amidst L’Auberge Casino Resort Lake Charles’ warm design and high-octane energy is also a resort ready to take on your toughest meeting challenges.

“Groups are able to get down to business and have fun teambuilding events that bring them closer together,” asserts Jennifer Jacobson, senior hotel sales manager. “Poker tournaments take place in the casino—golf, spa, fishing and hunting events in the surrounding area.”

Roughly 26,000 sf of meeting/conference space unravels throughout five richly decorated meeting spaces. The largest is the roughly 14,000-sf L’Auberge Ballroom, featuring modern A/V equipment and a 40- by 30-foot stage that can be converted into a 1,404-seat performance venue with tiered seating. The ballroom is richly decorated—a paneled wainscot and beamed coffered ceiling create a warm and inviting atmosphere.

Groups seeking some G&G time will find the 18-hole championship golf course, with marsh and lowland features and eight dynamic lake challenges, well worth the time. The course is the only one in Louisiana designed by Tom Fazoli.
