This hotel is a wonderful example of big-city design brought to a smaller scale in the Midwest and executed perfectly.
If you've been to a Soho House or Ace Hotel, the Charmant replicates that feel in LaCrosse and brings the design quality of the entire town up a notch.
The service was great. The restaurant and bar are excellent. The rooms were pretty good and the overall design was outstanding.
I'd recommend it for anyone from Chicago or Minneapolis, looking for a different weekend out of the city.
The bike networks in LaCrosse and the quirky, bar-packed downtown were a lot of fun for us.
Try it - you might like it.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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.
