We normally stay further west at the Fairfield Inn in Sulphur but decided to redeem a freebie night at this property on this trip. It turned out to be a good choice. The lobby is of the new modern design with the dropped gauzy blue curtains. It does present a different ambience than that most other hotel lobbies.
Brittany checked us in with a friendly smile and answered our questions about the hotel and area. We were on our way to room 425 in a flash. The room was fine. It was clean, cool and laid out for efficiency. Everything worked and although the room corner faced the 210, the road noise was not a factor during the night.
This location has a full bar in the lobby and because this was Lundi Gras (Monday before Mardi Gras) there was a happy hour (2 for 1) drink special from 5-7 PM. There was a spin-for-a-gift wheel going on and gifts ranged from a simple cup to a free night. We won some beads, a cup and a travel water bottle. They also laid out some boudin sausage bites and several King Cakes, both of which were quite tasty. Breakfast the next morning was the usual SHS fare and we easily found enough to satisfy our appetites.
Overall, this is a nice place to stop and all of the staff are very cordial, helpful and proficient in their positions. There was even a nice young man in the lobby offering to scrape the ice from our windshield if we wanted. I haven't had that offer since I stayed at the Mclean Hilton in Tyson's Corner years ago. A nice touch. The rates are quite a bit higher than the Farifield down the freeway but if you want to splurge a little, stay here in Lake Charles.
