Our family is hosting our daughter's wedding reception in the main special event space in the 1857 Hotel venue. We've secured several rooms in the main building for guests as well as the guesthouse located around the corner above TriBeCa Mexican. This is a wonderful space for two to three families to stretch out and spend time together. The bedrooms...

I am a business traveler logging an average of 4 nights out per week. I stayed in The 1857 guesthouse. It is clean and could be comfortable if the heat worked in the kitchen area and...

We are In town for a wedding, not knowing the area we booked this place on the recommendation of our friends who are getting married. Wow is all I can say...I travel all the time for work and my husband and I travel often for pleasure, so it takes something unusual to really knock my socks off...this place is it!...

My husband and I along with another couple had a wonderful experience at the 1857 Hotel. We stayed in the queen rooms that were impeccably decorated and clean. Bed and pillows were comfortable. Shower was massive with a large over sized shower head. No shower curtain was needed and I don't understand the other reviewer complaining about this. Oversize flat...

Paducah is a hidden gem. Our stay at the guest house was perfect. Central location, first class customer service, and very relaxed atmosphere. We stayed on the third floor, after a complimentary upgrade (thanks Paul). The pool table was fabulous. It was like staying at a friend's house. Can't wait to go back!

This hotel is amazing. They only have a very few rooms and they are excellent. The king suite I had had an amazing tub/shower area. The bed was comfortable. There is a nice bar in the hotel and plenty of restaurants around the hotel within walking distance. This was my second time staying here. I will definitely be back and...

This is a fantastic condo above The Tribeca restaurant in a beautiful restored building in the center of Paducah's historic district. As a group of seven ladies, we rented both floors which consist of three bedrooms, two kitchens and two living areas with a great outside deck. Plenty of room for all and we would definitely stay here again. Because...
