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!
