We were told that this was a boutique hotel.The rooms were of an era but seemed a bit mixed up

The location and parking was fine but please if you are going to have someone check you in and they are the only person in the hotel ..make sure they have some idea about the area,restaurants and local attractions.The reception staff was friendly enough but was from out of town and new nothing....never we wont stay again

The rooms in Lafayette's best (and only) downtown hotel are beautifully furnished, with comfortable beds, a great desk chair, and a bathtub big enough for three.But, on the whole, I can't say my family totally enjoyed our stay or felt it was worth the money. When we arrived, there were 3 hangers in the closet. We asked for more they brought 3 more flimsy metal ones. We also had to request a hair dryer. Most annoying, though, was that our room wasn't cleaned when we were away from about 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. When we told the desk clerk, he claimed their policy was clean only rooms where guests had hung a "Please Service" sign on the door, a policy I'd never before encountered in a hotel and that this hotel had not announced by word or signage. All these things sound rather petty, and while they may be forgiven in a budget hotel, I expect more when I'm paying $136/night (plus tax) for a room.

Room Tip: All rooms are second floor, and the ones off Jefferson Street are quieter.

Walked in off the street to see a room. We were in downtown waiting to eat a late lunch at the French press Resturant three blocks way. The desk person Andrew showed us the room and my husband and our friends decided to stay there. I asked Andrew if he would upgrade our room which he gladly did. Our room was lovely and one of their suites. Our friends were right across the hall in an equally nice suite. Andrew was so helpful with Resturant recommendations and a place for dancing to zydeco music. We left
Lafayette planning our next trip! Sure the Juliet is a bit tired but such a faded elegance from the past!

Room Tip: Ask for a room upgrade

The small and the big: first, the desk clerk checked me into a room that had not been cleaned and had dirty linen in piles all over the room. Redirected to a cleaned room, I found it spacious and pretty quiet with a window on to Jefferson Street (or Rue de Jefferson, as the Acadian's like to say) but getting dingier by the day. The carpet needed replacing. Not until the second day when they had not cleaned the room at all the first day, did I understand why it was so important to clean the room. It smelled like a wet dog had been sleeping on it for a very long time. Whatever room spray hotel housekeepers used had effectively covered that smell for 12 hours. Then the desk clerk referred me down the street to a breakfast restaurant that was not open at all. Oh, after the room had not been cleaned after the first night and I asked about that, the desk clerk replied, "Oh, I'll remind them to do it tomorrow." Not, Holy Mackerel! That should not happen. Sorry. I'll get someone up there right away or we can change your room." At any rate, its convenient and boutique and you want it to be lovely - but its not.

Unless you don't mind staying on a very busy road this is probably the best place to stay in Lafayette. On the plus side the rooms are huge, and it gets all the basics right, comfy bed, good shower, coffee in room etc. The downside is there is no bar, restaurant or coffee shop. There is however a great diner a few blocks away and a few bars in walking distance. Not sure they can justify their room rate or maybe the rate was higher because of the mardi gras parades.

I remember this place when it was an antique store way back in the 1980's and before that when a dress shop occupied the first floor when I was in college at USL in the 1970's. What it's turned into is a lovely little hotel. The room placement on the top floor is unique in mostly a good way. However, the walls are a bit thin. The first time hubs and I stayed there a few years ago, the couple next door played their iPod LOUDLY to try to cover the noise of their lovemaking. Didn't quite do the job. So I played the TV LOUDLY early the next morning. LOL

For the most part, the rooms are lovely, bathtubs are gigantic and the staff is very accommodating. We've made reservations for next year's Mardi Gras weekend. (Feb. 28, 2014 to March 2, 2014) The Juliet is right in the middle, if you want to go to the parade or get ready for the Krewe Ball, it's the place to be.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the lower digits. They face Jefferson St. where there is more to look at.
