We bolted home to Ohio from Y Nationals and needed a respite stop. Boy did we stumble upon a gem! This place is in THE perfect location and affords a gorgeous view of the Ohio and Muskingum River confluence. The bar is amazing! Shirley Temples all around with a beer and vino for the adults. Beautiful views, great ambiance, we decide to tour some rooms.
I highly recommend actually looking at the rooms, because each is so individual that it might make a difference about where you will stay! send one in to make the call. Staff were very accommodating with my requests to see the rooms, and it was worth the time. Prices are very fair.
We had room 414, excellent suite, 2 bathrooms (2 girls) separated sleeping areas, brand new pull out queen, and queen in bedroom. Period "Lafayette"ish furnishings...pretty.
This hotel is reportedly haunted, and me and my teen girls had tons of fun wandering around and checking the old place out. It has endured floods, floods, and is old enough to be...had a couple experiences......Fun!
We will be back to this great River Town.....ate at the Brewery....generic eats but walking distance. will venture out more next time! Love the LaFayette!
