Poor2.0
Paper thin walls. Could hear everything going on in the room besides and above us. Outside our room was a large chesse set that is very noisy and doesn’t close down at any time so at 1am you could hear the loud voices and banging of chesse pieces. Staff weren’t very friendly. Food + drinks were very expensive. And we had to pay extra for parking... would not stay here again.

Lafayette Hotel in November
Lovely older hotel that is updated inside. The condition of the rooms is good and the bed was very comfortable. The bedding and towels were all in excellent condition. The bathroom was nice and bright and the a/c worked well. Staff were helpful. It was a bit further to walk to the zoo than I expected and downtown was quite a ways away but easy enough to bus to. The Russian restaurant across the street was excellent. The price was right.
