We chose this hotel because it was within 2 blocks of Rapides General Hospital where my father was in ICU. Upon arrival at 11pm, the night manager (Toya) was super friendly and very helpful. In fact, throughout our stay here (4 nights), Toya always greeted us with a huge smile and always wanted to know if there was anything she... More

I can not say enough about the service that I received at the Alexander Fulton Hotel. There is a General Manager there who is very knowledgeable and on point when it comes down to planning or making preparations for any event that you may have coming up in your life. She was very helpful to me when it came down... More

I enjoyed my five day stay at this hotel. We were in town for a family reunion and the staff at the hotel were very accommodating and friendly. Our room was very clean and cold upon arrival and the housekeeping staff fulfilled every request we had each day. Every time we walked through the front door, all staff greeted us... More

This hotel use to be a pretty happening place, but now it's run down, dirty and in a sketchy part of town. My girlfriends and I stayed here for 3 nights for a teaching conference held at the college. We arrived to a rude receptionist and a smelly dirty room. There are stains on the carpet and on the bedspread.... More

The website for the hotel is deceiving. It looked like it had been remodeled and was very modern and nice on the website. When we arrived, it looked like someone slept on top of our bed after they made it. We could see all of the dirt and dust under the dresser that had been vacuumed around. Our entire floor... More

Worst hotel I have ever stayed at. Dirt on the fan, mold on the bathroom, broken bathroom door rotted wood,and weird smell. If you look at the online pictures the are grossly misleading. The hotel was almost abandoned. Loud noises from the road. Horrible is an understatement.

I stayed in the Alexander Fulton last weekend. Even though the furniture is old my room was very clean and comfortable. When I walked in the front door I could tell the hotel had a historic and beautiful feel to it. The front lobby personnel were extremely friendly and helpful. I did not like the fact that each time I... More

Upon arriving, I could tell the hotel hadn't been renovated for quite some time. Apparently they do not clean often, as the same food particles in the elevator remained from the day prior. Plus, the elevator walls were damaged. The room was "ok". It was old and outdated, just like the television. No cups to make coffee, no kleenex, and... More

Recently stayed at this hotel, because of an event being held at the adjoining Convention Center. The fact that I could walk directly from the hotel into the convention center without ever having to go outside was great. And the adjoining parking deck is very convenient. However, the hotel itself was a real disappointment. I checked in and was assigned... More
