2021 Travelers' Choice Best of the Best
Welcome to The Charmant Hotel, a 67-room upscale boutique hotel in historic downtown La Crosse, Wisconsin. Our hotel is a renovated candy factory, built in 1898. Architectural details of the original building have been preserved and reimagined, including maple wood flooring, wood beams, and exposed brick. Some say these materials still emanate the sweet smell of candy. Regarding our name, Charmant was a premium line of chocolates produced by the former Joseph B. Funke Candy Company. Charmant is also the French word for "charming," reflecting the hotel's friendliness, whimsy, and allure. Embracing locals and visitors alike, The Charmant Hotel is the heart of hospitality in La Crosse. Our rooms and suites feature premium amenities. Event spaces are available for business gatherings or private dinners. Our restaurant features a warm, inviting ambiance serving market driven, rustic, globally influenced cuisine using fresh ingredients sourced from local and regional farmers and purveyors. Offering daily breakfast, lunch, and dinner service, the dishes emerging from the open kitchen are fresh, simple, and down-to-earth. The 75-seat restaurant offers outdoor patio dining and a private dining room. Additional food and beverage venues at The Charmant Hotel include a cocktail bar and lounge, a "parlour" offering coffee and spirits, a rooftop terrace serving wood-fired pizza, and a sweet bar with pastries and handmade confections. Bon appetit!

We come to the Charmont once a year for a family gathering. It is close to everything, within walking distance. The rooms are comfortable and sound proof. The staff is very attentive. The coffee shop was was a very nice touch. The woman running the coffee shop was amazing. The valet parking was a very nice touch. You can come and go with your car and they bring it to you within a minute. No homeless people hanging at the entrance like you see at other hotels. Always felt safe coming in and out.

Loved it so much we extended our stay! The room was warm and very comfortable. We could walk to surrounding shops and we appreciated the easy access to the riverfront bike trail. Meals in the restaurant we as delicious as they were beautiful. It’s worth the trip.

Excellent facility in the downtown area. Renovated warehouse style. Very friendly and engaged team. Valet parking is quick and reasonable. Comfortable beds. Nice conference room on the lower level with an area outside the conference room for a meal buffet.
