Noise in the halls until 230 in the morning. Leaky, noisy toilet made noise all night long and then no hot water in the shower. Breakfast wasn’t great. The hotel is really beautiful and the rooms were nice.More

The Lafayette was a wonderful venue for a wedding we were in town for. Catering, bar, and staff were all great. We also enjoyed our suite. The hotel could use some touch-ups, but overall it was charming.

It is about a 10 minute walk. Definitely a good location to walk to the Key Bank Center. I would stay there again if going there for an event.
