I stayed here for 1 night while in Paducah for business. The hotel was great. The room was VERY spacious and had a comfortable bed. The hotel is within walking distance of several restaurants. The staff was friendly and helpful. They have a nice bar area that is well stocked.

8 girlfriends stayed here on July 9 for a double birthday celebration. The property is beautiful. Bedrooms are spacious and living/kitchen areas are well appointed. Was difficult to find switches to turn on ceiling fan in upstairs bedroom. Air conditioner didn't work in that room either. We loved this guest house and had plenty of room, BUT.... A hot tub...

My partner and I were looking for a hotel/inn/B&B in Paducah for 1 night and stumbled upon the 1857. We found that there is a B&B located above a couple of co-owned restaurants and around the corner, a small boutique hotel. We stayed at the hotel and it was awesome! On the ground floor, there is the reception area and... More

Just checked out of this 'outstanding" boutique hotel in Paducah KY... What a wonderful addition to their downtown river front area. Loved our room with the exposed brick wall and the open shower concept, so unique. And I think it's worth mentioning that I liked their choice of Beekman 1802 soap and shampoo products! They also have a great bar... More

The owner has done a wonderful job converting 2 long abandoned buildings into a charming boutique hotel and bar with live music. He also owns JP a restaurant around the corner where we had a great dinner. Hope Paducah appreciates the great contribution this returning son has given to the downtown

Passing through Paducah on the way to points east, we stayed on the second floor of the 1857 on Halloween night. We invited some friends of ours from another state to meet us there and stay in the other bedroom on the second floor. The 1857 is very well appointed and has that great contrast of 20th century amenities in... More
