“GREAT new property in Lafayette!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2012

The Homewood Suites in Lafayette is absolutely wonderful. The staff is friendly, the rooms are HUGE, and the property is spotless.

When we checked into our rooms last night, there was a notice that today, b/w 10 and noon, they would be testing the fire alarm system. So, at 10:30, the alarm began shrieking, awakening me. (Hey, I like to sleep in, when I have the chance!) It was hurtfully loud, & continued for 20 minutes. I understand that perhaps these tests need to be performed, but do they have to last for 20 min.? It was incredibly annoying. Other than that, this is a beautiful hotel.

Dear JanetCranky,

Thank you so much for taking the time to write and post your review of your recent stay with us. We thank you sincerely for your gracious comment that you found our hotel beautiful. We appreciate this so much! We also want to sincerely apologize that you were disturbed by our fire alarm test. We are required to perform semi-annual testing of both our visual and audio fire system elements. We do try to perform these at a time that will not inconvenience our guests, and we regret you were impacted by our testing. I will be sending you a private message in case you would like to contact me personally to discuss further. We do hope your experience won’t keep you from staying with us and would love to see you soon!

Thank you again, and wishing you safe travels!

Since this property is part of the Hilton chain, I'm trying to figure out who would prefer to stay at the old, traditional "Hilton" a few blocks away. The Homewood gives you so much more. As previously noted, the suites are spacious, well-furnished and nicely decorated (perhaps a little garish for the home -- kind of New Orleans style) and have kitchens and living rooms. Indeed the entire property feels very upscale, including the large "great room" that also serves as the breakfast room in the morning. Monday through Thursday nights, they give you a free dinner (not sure you want it though -- you're in one of the best food towns in America!), and the breakfast spread in the morning is undoubtedly the best "free breakfast" in town. Especially on weekends, prices are quite competitive with much lower quality accomodations. Location is excellent, right in the heart of Lafayette.

During our stay, much of the clientele seemed to be well-mannered oil services employees, who looked like they might be shipped out to an oil rig later that day. I kept thinking I wanted to work for that company, who obviously thought enough about its employees to put them up in the best digs in town.

The only negative I could find is that the hotel is big. If you don't get a room near reception, remember that that there is another entrance further down with an elevator that will make your comings and going much faster.

Stayed here last night. Hotel is exceptionally clean, beds comfortable, rooms were quite large. Welcome reception and breakfast was great. The location is convenient but a little hard to get in and out of during rush hour. I will be back!

We were in Lafayette for a wedding on New Year's Eve with several families. We booked two single suites and one double. The rooms were far above expectations. They were spacious, comfortable and nicely decorated. The service was impeccable. We visited with all the families in the courtyard and the kids enjoyed the basketball court and hot tub.

We traveled to Lafayette for a Family Reunion during the Thanksgiving Holiday. We booked 2 suites (1 King Suite and a 2 Queen Suite). All accommodations were excellent! This is a new hotel and the hotel was fully staffed during the holiday. The adults and kids equally loved the location! The breakfast and dinner (received on Wednesday night) was "excellent". Everyone is friendly, helpful and professional. There are several restaurants and shopping within walking distances to this hotel.

We will return to this location to stay whenever we are visiting in the Lafayette area.
