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 loved everything about the Charmant from the minute we walked in the door. What a gem for Lacrosse. We could have easily have just stayed at the hotel for the whole visit -the atmosphere is so welcoming and lovely you do not want to leave. We want to replicate every aspect of the bed in our own home.

Hotel's Favorite
Old candy factory now restored into a great boutique hotel right off a wonderful river park. Beautiful hotel with industrial sheek feel. Rooms aren’t huge but everything is nice quality. In entire hotel it appears they really thought things out—the right fixtures, furnishings and decor. All very high quality, huge quartz/glass shower, nice bed linens, etc. restaurant is good, bar. What sets this place apart is the amazing friendly staff. Roof top bar w food not open on M-T when we were there, but main bar and restaurant is good. A couple area restaurants are owned by same group—we tried Love Child which I would recommend. Beautiful park next door on Mississippi River w a nice garden on far north end by the tour riverboat. Highly recommend

The Charmant Hotel is a delightfully renovated 19th cy. brick warehouse across a park from the MI River. Service was good & very friendly. Tho' we didn't eat dinner there, the menu's wine list was impressive; the house wine I tried at happy hour was very good. Attractive rooftop deck with bar/snack service.

Beautiful accommodations, pet friendly. We enjoyed our 46th anniversary and felt very pampered. Our dog, Abby, was treated as well as we were! The soaking bath was to die for and the bed was very comfy! We certainly will consider another stay!

The Charmant Hotel was absolutely lovely. I appreciated the more modern and comfortable decor in the lobby areas in contrast to the age of the space; the contrast of old and new worked! I also made a mental note as to how the space was was laid out, as it was open and welcoming.

Excellent location. Great service. Rooftop bar is a treat. Staff are extremely attentive. A lot of restaurants, distilleries, shopping experiences close by. River is close by and easy to access. Definitely would stay again.

We’ve stayed at the Charmont at least a half dozen times. It is always the very best experience. The hotel is beautiful, clean and the staff go above and beyond to make your stay exceptional. Rooms are perfect, food delicious, rooftop and bar so wonderful. Lovely coffee shop on premises too. You honestly never need to leave the place as they have it all! Thank you🥰

I would highly recommend staying at the Charmant for any special occasion. We stayed there on our wedding night and we’re met with impeccable service. The room was beautiful, food was delicious, and the view of the river from our room was amazing!

This re-imagined historic chocolate factory ticks all the boxes for charm with modern style. From the sleek lobby to the cute coffee & pastry nook and the rooftop bar featuring the "Charmant" water tower, it's appealing. The staff is very friendly and nice. The food and cocktails were good. The regular King room was very roomy with big windows. If you're sound sensitive, be sure to ask whether your room assignment is below the rooftop bar (which is the reason for 4 stars), Valet parking is the only option (or chance a ticket on the street?) even though where they park the car is right to the side of the building in a big lot. Within blocks of the historic downtown area one direction, and a gorgeous park and the Mississippi river and riverwalk the other direction.

Neat boutique hotel near the university. Fun French vibe, decor, and menu. Friendly staff. Very quiet at night, which is a plus when you're on a business trip. One thing that stood out that I appreciated a lot is that the bathroom amenities were generous! I wear my hair long, and I was able to use the shampoo and conditioner and get a great wash. Small thing, but very nice. I will be back.
