“Very nice hotel!”
Reviewed 10 August 2008

I cannot say enough about this hotel... I will recommend it to anyone I know going to La Crosse. The staff is probably the most compatent staff I've ever experienced. From the front desk to the maid service to the bartender, everyone was friendly and helpful. The hotel sparkles - usually you can find a corner in the bathroom or someplace in the room that is a little "unclean". Not in our room! The decorating was very pleasant, the bed was comfortable and the bedding was soft and fresh smelling. We had a king room with a whirlpool and everything ran properly, there was plenty of hot water and you could see the TV from the tub (yay!) The view from our room (#321) was phenominal. This is the only hotel (that I could see) on the river. Sometimes you can hear the boats, but I really liked that. The hotel also has a full bar with appetizers in the lobby and you can sit out on the patio right alongside the river. It was just a joy to stay there - we will definately go again.
If there is a downfall, it's the location. If you want to walk to downtown, it is about 3-4 blocks away. But if you're willing to walk, it's no big deal. It certainly wasn't to us. I actually think the location is more of a bonus because it's quiet, secluded and right on the river.

Nice location, down by the Mississippi, but a bit of a walk to the Riverside Park and the centre of town. Spacious room (king jacuzzi suite on first floor) - but disappointing that we were unable to open the French doors leading to the grass by the river. We enjoyed room-service from Piggy's restaurant (excellent food; huge portions) and breakfast (included in our room rate) was adequate.

We loved this place! The people at the front desk were friendly and acted more like family than employees. My husband forgot his razor and they quickly gave us one and were so gracious asking if we needed anything else. Our room was right on the river and we loved being so close to the water. We walked to a church downtown, and to places to eat. In all our travels, this has to be olne of the top spots. We will be back again next year.

Friendly and courteous service at the front desk. Morning buffet is nothing to brag about but the service was great. Rooms were large and comfortable......get the King Room w/jacuzzi. Walking distance to virtually every bar and restaurant in town. Great wine bar a feet away. All around good stay.

Just pulling up to this hotel, situated on the beautiful Mississippi river, just below a bridge connecting La Crosse and Minnesota, it's pretty obvious that this is a nice place.

Getting into the spacious and nicely designed lobby was even better. I travel quite a bit and it's always nice to stay at a hotel with accommodating staff, beautiful setting (inside and outside the hotel) and a great location. I felt very relaxed the entire stay.

The exercise room was a little small but very well kept. They had some nice elliptical machines with attached TV’s as well as a stair stepper, a recumbent bike and a nice set of free weights along with a weight bench. I got a great workout any time I wanted (its open 24 hours, with a great sunset view of the river) and always went to bed relaxed.

Downtown La Crosse is very nice and easily accessible by foot or by car. There are a lot of local restaurants and bars within walking distance.

I can't say enough nice things about my experience at this hotel. Give it a try, I was very pleased with my stay.

We stayed there while on a motorcycle ride from the Twin Cities. I was told they were booked up that weekend so keep there number on my cell. When we got into La Crosse I gave them a call and they had an opening. The room was clean and smelled clean not musty or anything of that nature. The pool was clean and a nice patio outside over looking the Mississippi river. The hotel staff very professional and nice. We had the Jacuzzi tub suite for about $150 a night. The breakfast buffet was taste and was set up pretty good. One thing you have to try is across the street to Piggys restaurant, great food nice place. Check it out on line at piggys. We are looking at doing this again next fall for coloramma, and eating dinner there again.

This hotel was perfectly located for our stay. We attended the Between The Bluffs beer and cheese festival yesterday and walked there from the hotel. We arrived around noon and knew it was a 3 pm check in but went in anyway. The woman at the desk said she would check to see if a room was available yet and I told her it would be nice to get a quiet room away from the stairs and elevators as I am a light sleeper. She said she would check while we wandered around looking at the pool and the area where the breakfast buffet was located. The hotel is also on the Mississsippi River so we took a look out the windows at the great view. She called us back to the reception desk and said that a room was cleaned and ready for us. While we were wandering the girl (Amanda) at the breakfast area told us about the buffet and talked us into coming the next morning. Our room was beautiful with a king bed and whirlpool and a view of the river. Everything was very clean and comfortable. I had gotten a coupon out of a La Crosse tourism book so instead of $135 for the room I got it for $99. Great price for an excellant hotel. That night we had the fan on low cool and could hear nothing else the whole night. Breakfast the next morning was also very good with cooked to order eggs and a wide selection of many other hot and cold items. It was $8.95. And we can't say enough good things about Amanda, she was always at the table at just the exact times that we needed something or to take the plates away and what a great personality. You will not be dissappointed with this hotel as far as location, people, and a great stay. We look forward to returning.
