Stayed here on business recently. Great location right on the MS river. The rooms were updated, but you could still feel the years on them. The gym is rather small, but adequate (would be nice to have more weights!!) and the pool is a bonus. The real stars were the staff. Great front desk staff and an incredible housekeeping staff....

Almost directly under the "blue bridge" that crosses the Wisconsin channel of the Mississippi River. Get a river front room to enjoy the boating and sun lovers if you stay during the warm months. Service and check in is great, room is clean and perfect; the little bistro is convenient and the river walk is nice for enjoying walks along... More

9/7/14 - Great place to stay in LaCrosse. Right on Mississippi with a nice 'riverwalk' to stretch your legs. Easy walking distance to all the restaurants / bars on the main street. Check-in staff was great (around 9pm). The staff in the 'lounge' and for breakfast were equally great - friendly and helpful. Free ample parking, no loud noises from... More

We love this location right on the river, and walking distance to downtown. The rooms are great, and the lobby is nicely designed. With a checkout time of noon, it seems strange to only have "The Bistro" open until 10 am. Hardly time to get up and going and have breakfast for some of us!!

Thank you Julie L for the kind review on Trip advisor! It is true that our Bistro closes for full breakfast service at 10AM on weekends BUT, we can offer you a cup of coffee or hot Starbucks drink anytime of day or night as all of our front desk staff are fully trained on Barista duties. You just pay... More

we stayed for a night in late August in a king room that looked out onto the Mississippi River. A nice sized room with a king pillowtop bed, very comfortable. When we needed a few extra items, the staff was immediate and friendly bringing items to our door with five minutes. We also wanted to exchange our decaf coffee for... More

Our family met the family of two of my college roommates for the night, so 14 people. Because there were so many of us, we kind of took over the lobby when it came to supper. They were so accommodating and even helped us rearrange the lobby furniture while we ate. After that we spent the evening outside on the... More

Have stayed many times at this awsome hotel! From Cookie our Houskeeper to the General Manager Amy, everything was top notch! The newly renovated hotel is clean and fresh! The Bistro (that looks out over the River) is the Best! La Crosse is such a great place to visit, and the La Crosse Courtyard is the best place to stay!

My daughter was getting married at a nearby venue. Most of the guests were coming from out of town and some as far away as Venezuela. The hotel staff were exceptionally accommodating and helpful. There was a problem with the rehearsal as it was scheduled to be outside but when the weather turned rainy we were at a loss as... More

I have to say that La Crosse surprised me. It was a great small city with a vibrant downtown district. I loved the little touches like the poetry and dance steps stamped in the concrete sidewalks and the very lovely gardens near the north end of the riverfront park. The hotel is right on the river in downtown La Crosse.... More

Great riverfront location and handy for either downtown or festivals. About 7/10 of a mile to Festival grounds. Parking good. Bad floors on 3rd level...noisy and active underfoot....contractor should have repeated "Floor Installation 101". Elevator (just one ) needs some maintenance too.
