Airbnb is definitely a ‘thing’ these days, but did you realize there are two amazing rental opportunities downtown? We can recommend either of these for a delightful visit from relatives or friends or simply as a ‘staycation’ opportunity when you get sick of your own four walls.
The beautiful 1897 Logan Mansion has rooms from $115-$139, all decked out in turn-of-the-last century Victorian finery. Each room comes fulled equipped with a K-cup coffee maker, a mini-fridge stocked with fun snacks and other treats left by the amazing hosts, who want each visitor to have the time of his or her life in Shreveport! Enjoy local historic walking tours, fun shopping at C & C Mercantile and Lighting,
Shreve Towne Studio 512 and The Agora Borealis, all just minutes away. Look at wonderful architecture as you walk through Caddo Common Park. Visit Robinson Film Center, artspace, the Shreveport Aquarium and the Shreveport Water Works Museum. Eat and drink and get caffeinated at Rhino Coffee Downtown, Parish Taceaux, Abby Singer’s Bistro, The Missing Link and other downtown eateries. Blow a piece of custom art glass at Sanctuary Glass Studio at the Red River Brewpub… and all this is just the beginning of your delightful stay.
Earn bragging rights by staying in a space that very few others will be able to claim. Spend the night(s) in a century-old fire hose tower that stands behind Shreveport’s original Central Fire Station. The tower, now called the Kallenberg Artist Tower or ‘KAT’, was built in 1922 and is a single 5-story apartment! Go up to the rooftop to enjoy a spectacular view of downtown.
The contemporary and industrial space is fun, featuring a room on each level (you’ll feel good about the exercise!). The lobby features tower info, coat rack and half bath. Level 2 gets into the heart of KAT and holds the Living Room with large TV, board games and books. Level 3 is the kitchen and dining space, but chances are good with restaurants like Noble Savage Tavern, The Blind Tiger and Retro Down Town Cafe, you won’t be breaking out the pots and pans. Level 4 features the fully stocked bath area and Level 5 is the bedroom complete with queen-sized bed. P.S., pets are welcome too, for a small cleaning fee. The Hose Tower rents for $199 per night.
