Stayed here for 2 days over a weekend in January on a driving holiday through MS, LA and TX. There are some decor issues in the common areas of the hotel, but overall it isn't bad. Our room had a lovely view of the river through the huge wall to wall window and a comfy armchair beside it. The 2 beds in the room however were quite small, one larger bed would have suited us better.
There were wall and ceiling stains in the corridors and the window frames outside the lift on our floor were plugged with newspaper. The atmosphere was one of a hotel that had its last heyday in 1979. Overall refurbishment of the common areas would make a huge difference to this otherwise well run hotel. The hotel was very busy while we were there and staff were courteous and efficient. Room cleaning was also very good.
The location is great too in that it's near enough to shopping, restaurants and local attractions - it seems quite distant from central Lafayette but central Lafayette is like a ghost town. The Hilton is just around the corner from several great restaurants - we ate in the Blue Dog Cafe and Guidry's Reef, both of which are highly recommended for both atmosphere and food.
