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.
