Certificate of Excellence
Welcome to The Charmant Hotel, a 67-room upscale boutique hotel in historic downtown La Crosse, Wisconsin. Our hotel is a renovated candy factory, built in 1898. Architectural details of the original building have been preserved and reimagined, including maple wood flooring, wood beams, and exposed brick. Some say these materials still emanate the sweet smell of candy. Regarding our name, Charmant was a premium line of chocolates produced by the former Joseph B. Funke Candy Company. Charmant is also the French word for "charming," reflecting the hotel's friendliness, whimsy, and allure. Embracing locals and visitors alike, The Charmant Hotel is the heart of hospitality in La Crosse. Our rooms and suites feature premium amenities. Event spaces are available for business gatherings or private dinners. Our restaurant features a warm, inviting ambiance serving market driven, rustic French influenced cuisine using fresh ingredients sourced from local and regional farmers and purveyors. Offering daily breakfast, lunch, and dinner service, the dishes emerging from the open kitchen are fresh, simple, and down-to-earth. The 75-seat restaurant offers outdoor patio dining and a private dining room. Additional food and beverage venues at The Charmant Hotel include a cocktail bar and lounge, a "parlour" offering coffee and spirits, a rooftop terrace serving wood-fired pizza, and a sweet bar with pastries and handmade confections. Bon appetit!

Dear Jodi, I am very sorry you feel this way and your experience should have never occurred. We have addressed the cause and we don't anticipate this to be a situation anytime in the future. I spoke with our Front Desk associate who checked you out and I understand that you were satisfied with the resolution. At Charmant, we empower our associates to make decision as if they were the GM, however I agree that myself or another manager should have followed up here. We will make sure to do better next time and I would love it if you could email me directly so I can ensure things are absolutely perfect for you next stay with us. Thanks for posting your review, we always welcome feedback to continue to progress on expectations and service levels. Best, Sean

The Charmant lived up to its name -- it is very charming. The rooms are beautiful with a lot of attention to detail. We had a view of the river and could easily take a walk along the riverfront.. The restaurant was also great.
