Deep in the heart of Louisiana sits the historic Bailey Hotel, where turn-of-the-century style and Cajun hospitality come together. Located in Bunkie, The Bailey Hotel, built in 1907, was placed on the National Register of Historic Places by the Department of the Interior in August of 1999. The Renovation is finally complete after 3 years. Experience antique furnishings, fine Cajun dining, modern comfort and true southern charm centrally located at the Crossroads of Louisiana. Make your visit to Louisiana truly an experience as the Grand Dame has awakened and is the Belle of the Ball. We invite you to stay with us on your next visit to New Orleans and the unique state that is called Louisiana.From it's beginning in 1907, The Bailey Hotel has been the center of community activity. Domino tournaments and bridge games have drawn their share of willing contestants casually sipping their coffee or tea, and who can not wonder if the occasional -mint julip- passed those willing lips. Now, with the complete remodeling of the hotel, the past can be revisited. Old friendships can be reunited, and new acquaintances can be sparked with the flint of the past and the desire to return to those -good ole days-.The Management and Staff of the Bailey wish to invite all to celebrate the reconstruction of not only wood and stone, but of days long since past. Central Louisiana is one of the most easy-going places in the world, especially Avoyelles Parish. The local people are hard-working and friendly, especially to strangers. Our unique outlook on life makes all our guests feel welcome and gives those the feeling of being -at-home-.
