Wonderful Experience! I loved this place! It is a trip back in time on the Ohio River, and not far off the highway. The rooms were super clean, the beds were very comfortable, the food was great in the bar/restaurant off the lobby, and the price of an overnight stay was a huge boost to our budget. The free breakfast the next morning was over the top! There’s a Starbucks in the lobby! What more could you ask for? We would never stay anywhere else in that area.

A step back in time! I loved this hotel, it was like stepping back in time! I stayed two nights and hope to return someday to stay again. Located in the heart of Marietta, you can't go wrong with this choice. The room was very clean and comfortable. Bradley at the front desk was friendly and welcoming too! I will definitely recommend this hotel to friends and family. Thanks for a great experience.

A great getaway weekend. A really fun place to say. Full of history in a historic town. Food is good at the hotel and restaurants within walking distance. You can get lost in the lobby just looking at the history of the place. It's fun just to watch the river traffic and occasionally hear a train whistle. It's a little walk back in time. Each room is different, so sometimes you don't know what you're getting, but they're all very nice and clean.

Wonderful PlaceTo Stay The entire place is so charming and so relaxing. Breakfast was very good and the hotel bar was great for an end of day nightcap! Conveniently located in the heart of downtown Marietta. Shopping and entertainment all in walking distance. Wonderful place to watch the Ohio River barges go by.

The Amazing Lafayette Hotel This was our 2nd visit to Marietta and the Lafayette Hotel. My husband and I love this hotel. It is unique and so much fun to explore. The view from the rooftop deck is so beautiful Our room was comfortable and so quiet! I loved the pillows and the bed is very comfortable. They gave vouchers for breakfast (good for weekdays) ...you can order the traditional breakfast at no charge. This included 2 eggs, bacon, sausage or ham...various toast choices...hashbrowns and coffee. If you prefer to order something else from the menu, the voucher is good for $5.00 off. It was a great deal!!! Very tasty breakfast and the wait staff was great!We sat in the Riverview Restaurant/bar for a drink and we love the atmosphere. Unfortunately they are extremely short staffed and the bartender Mandy was handling all the drink requests and food orders!! She was always professional and polite, even under the stress of trying to please her customers! Mandy was amazing and such a hard worker! 5 stars for her and also the gentleman who waited on us the previous night! I'm sorry we didn't get his name but he was running running to serve his customers. Loyal staff for sure!!I love the Lafayette Hotel and the town of Marietta ! The beautiful river always makes me happy!

Historic Experience Beautiful room full of antiques and ambience. Very comfortable and just plain fun. Vastly superior to any cookie-cutter chain. Free parking and great location to walk anywhere you want to go. The public spaces are especially nice. Great lobby.

"My friends and I take a yearly trip (seniors) and we chose Marietta for its historic legacy. We chose the Lafayette Hotel for the same reason. We were awestruck by the beauty of the hotel. It was everything we hoped it would be down to the architecture and antiques. The reception staff was most hospitable, kind, and informative. Our rooms were lovely and well appointed. The view from our window was beautiful. The hotel was very quiet. The restaurants were right on the mark. Prices were affordable and service was excellent even with a big car race in town. Housekeeping was also top notch. Our rooms were always clean and refurbished when we returned. Everyone, staff, and residents were most friendly. We have traveled to many ports of call and we all agreed this was the nicest stay we had even with the torrid temperatures. We hope to return and will highly recommend the Lafayette Hotel to our friends. Our stay was from June 21st to June 23rd."

"Historic Lafayette Hotel - the class of 1973 from Parkersburg South High School would like to thank Launa Morus and her staff for their hard work on ensuring our 50 year class reunion was a success. Launa was so easy to work with and went above and beyond to meet our needs. Our event was a great success!"
