“never any problems”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2011

I have stayed at this location several times while visiting my son at Purdue. It is close to campus, with many stores and restaurants nearby. While I was there for parents weekend, the parking lot was full, but across the street there is a parking garage available and the hotel validates- so no big deal at all. The rooms are quiet for the most part, although this time I was near the service elevator, so it was a bit noisier. Also, dont pay more for the larger king room --while it is larger in size, the space seems wasted. There is a couch, in a "living room" area, but no television there, so we found that area useless. The room was exceptionally clean, which is one of the most important factors for me. The beds are comfortable, and the shower was nice and large with great water pressure.

This is by far the best place to stay when going to Purdue University. Beds are soft and comfortable and there is a bar and restaurant at the hotel. There are great city views from rooms and there is no noise. Small indoor swimming pool is great for quick exercise. Front desk staff were so welcoming. Only negative is that the prices go up astronomically when anything is happening at Purdue. It is really one of only two decent places to stay though so we sucked it up!

I was very surprised to read the poor reviews for this hotel.

We booked this hotel at the last minute, after deciding to stay in town after a wedding. While we didn't end up on the same floor as the other wedding guests, our room was still great.

It was very clean, spacious, and the beds were very comfortable. Other reviews complained about being able to hear noise from other rooms, but we did not experience that. And we know that there were people in the room beside us. The furniture was not brand new, but was definitely not outdated. I'm sure it would have been nice to have had a flat screen tv, but we never even turned the tv on.

I'm used to staying in Holiday Inns that offer free continental breakfast. That is not the case for this hotel, although the restaurant in the lobby offers both a buffet breakfast as well as ordering from a menu.

The room was a bit pricey, but there was nothing wrong with the property itself.

Room Tip: Don't get a room on the 2nd floor - that's where the receptions & parties happen.

Stayed at the City Centre for a family wedding in Lafayette. Entire staff, including group sales, front desk, bar and housekeeping were all professional and accommodating. They gave us a nice upgrade as well. Only thing we were not completely happy with..the lobby was not cleaned on Sat. night so there were bar glasses and trash in the lobby Sun morning and Sunday brunch was $13.95 - a bit steep for a family.

My wife and I spent the night at the City Center Holiday Inn for the second year in a row, making a "getaway" of picking up our children from summer camp. This hotel does a very nice job! We were upgraded to a corner room upon check-in and following an appropriate time in the room, the manager called to ask if our room was satisfactory. The room was nice, albeit it seems odd to not have a flat screen television these days. Our room was comfortable and quiet and we enjoyed a cocktail in the bar following a delicious dinner at Bistro 501 - a French restaurant just a couple blocks away. We plan to continue this nice getaway for at least another couple years.

I booked this over several local hotels based on online pictures. I wanted to stay close to Purdue University, so selected this. When we arrived in the afternoon there was plenty of parking, and everything was quiet. We then headed over to campus to shop, and eat dinner. During dinner it started pouring down rain, and we arrived at the hotel around 6pm.

There was NO PARKING LEFT. There was a wedding, and all of their wedding vendors and employees were parked in the hotel lot, leaving us to park at a parking garage across the block. I talked to the manager who told me, people must just be here for the Indy 500 (this is over an hour drive away). I replied no, the majority of the cars in the lot were Tippecanoe and Benton county cars (local), to which she just said that's how it is.

Later on, we realized our room was just outside the pool room door. Talk about loud. Until 2:30am when I finally called to complain I listened to people yelling, running up and down the halls, and laughing very loud. After complaining, guest services finally came up and knocked on the room next door, and asked them to quiet down. I finally fell asleep after 3am, and my little boy woke me up at 5:55am.

This is not to mention you can hear every flush, or water running of the room next door at a very loud decible.

We're up in the Lafayette area a lot and will NEVER book here again. I'd rather go camping (and believe me - I do not camp).

Room Tip: Don't book here.

we stayed here for my birthday so we wouldn't have to drive after hitting the bars. our daughter came by before our festivities began to swim in the pool. they didn't tell us when we were checking in that the pool was closed... on a saturday! the guy that was filling the pool said it would be ready in a couple hours, so we waited in the room and ordered pizza for a couple hours and went back to hear it wouldn't be ready till the next day! with check out at noon and my husband and i planning on being hung-over the next day, we talked to the front desk and got the ok to check out later in order for her to come back and swim. sunday came and the water registered at 50 degrees! the poor kid wanted to swim so badly that she struggled through it for about 10 min until i made her get out with blue lips!! if we had known the pool wouldn't have been ready, we would have gone to the hilton instead.
aside from the pool problem, the rooms need some serious updating. it looks like a beautiful hotel on the outside, but the inside looks like any other hotel that hasn't been updated since 1985! not what you expect for the price!
i wish there were more options downtown lafayette, but if we ever decide to get a room there again, i'll be going to the hilton!
