“Stylish, comfortable Marriott Suite hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

The one year old SpringHill Suites Lafayette South at River Ranch is great. The suite is spacious, well laid out to provide maximum convenience and comfort, stylish, immaculate, bright, and the hotel has excellent staff. We particularly liked the extremely efficient but very quiet heating/cooling system that operates far better than similar hotel units. The sink outside the toilet shower area is not in your room but in a separate cubicle and the living room area is well separated from the bed area. The design is also clever in that the flat screen TV is positioned on the wall between both so it easily works for both area without the need for two TVs. The breakfast was very good and the area spacious enough that even though we were not part of the team and families it was not too crowded for us to find space and the food was replenished enough to deal with the crowd. We even liked that the staff was very open and honest that they need to modify the shower door design to prevent leaking onto the floor and are working on it....and was interested in suggestions from frequent travelers. All in all, it is a classy, comfortable hotel. If you are in the area specifically for the music venues in Lafayette, Mamou and Eunice you will find it a bit far but it was perfectly located for all other reasons for visiting the area.

Room Tip: As with all other chain hotels, ask if there are any teams that will be there and request a room on...

I travel quite frequently and I don't know if I've ever stayed in a better designed hotel. Whoever the architect was really did a spectacular job setting this place up. Everything is laid out for the best use of space. This is also the best hotel I have stayed in, worldwide, for lighting. Finally, someone woke up and put some decent lights in the lamps. The staff was great and the breakfast one of the best in this price range.

This looks like a brand new hotel in a very new looking area. About 15 min drive from highway. Near shopping area.
Rooms were clean, but rooms were missing soap and tissue boxes.
Breakfast must be accomplished early otherwise it gets too crowded and some items were missing. Front desk was helpful and lobby was clean.

Spent one night at this hotel. It's relatively new and the room is in good size. Front desk personnel was very friendly, as well as the person serving at the breakfast area in the morning. No problem to stay at this place again in the future.

This is a new hotel. It's clean and located in a wonderful area of shopping and nightlife. The breakfast was very nice with many choices. My only complaint would be the suite floor plan. It's laid out all wrong with the sink outside the bathroom in a cramped alcove that the bathroom door hits when opened. The small kitchenette had no sink for making coffee and the living room couch wasn't placed in a way to see the tv. Otherwise it was fine. Great price for a quick stay over.

I highly recommend the Springhill Suites at River Ranch in Lafayette, LA. I was on an extended project and stayed there every week for 5 months. The rooms were very modern and clean, the staff was excellent and the location is awesome,

Excellent service, impeccable, comfortable, modern rooms with great seating, lighting and access to outlets. Breakfast is wonderful, with fresh fruits, walnuts and 3 kinds of raisins for the oatmeal, among many other hot and cold selections. Appreciated the free in room wifi and kitchenette. Great, central location with walk to upscale shopping. The hotel was fully booked during our stay, and I don't think the front desk manager ever went home during our stay, yet always greeted us with a smile.
