The staff didn't have any sense of urgency and would do things that didn't make logical sense. The price was unbeatable and overall it was a good experience. Christina the sales woman is what made the experience go smoother. The hotel itself as far as rooms went was not as nice and the desk staff was not willing to actually do work.

Everything was wonderful, the hotel was very accommodating, the ballroom was elegant and beautiful, and the the staff went above and beyond. There were rooms downstairs that we were allowed to use to get ready in, and the upstairs powder room was a beautiful place for pictures. My only complaint is that the upstairs deck could be so much better, maybe a tiki bar set up or a garden bar. They also did our food and we chose the pasta bar which was amazing!

Donna McKnight, the event planner for the Lafayette was wonderful. She was responsive to every email, every question... and I had a lot of them! We had rave reviews on how great the food tasted and how fast the food service was. Don't forget to figure in taxes and tip when figuring the cost of your meal because that added almost $700 for me the weekend of the weeding... YIKES!
Also, though I didn't know about it until aftewards apparently the staff was less than thrilled about setting up my table decorations DESPITE the fact we had been promised that it would be handled 100%. My cousins took care of it for me, and it turned out beautifully!

Things are VERY different now. They now have Donna McKnight, the awesome banquet coordinator who helped us in every way possible to make things easier for us. From the initial meeting til after the wedding, working with them had been seamless for us.

We opted for a dessert reception, and we were amazed at what their pastry chef, Kathy Sloan, lined up for us. She even gave us her personal email so we can send her information and pictures of ideas that we found online. During the planning stage, she and Donna responded to our questions through emails and calls very promptly, which really gave us peace of mind knowing we were working with reliable people. We even got some useful ideas from them too!

But what we really appreciated was that they took care of setting up the venue for us - decor, buffet table, wedding cake setup, everything! For a very minimal fee, we never had to do it ourselves or impose on anybody in the wedding party or family to help us do it. On the actual day of the wedding, who would have the time really? We wanted our friends and family to enjoy our wedding day, and they let us do just that.

Things may be different now, but when I got married there, I had to be on top of everything to make sure it all went well.For ex: they didn't put out any garbage cans for the appetizer stand, so people put dirty plates on my guest book table and everywhere else UNTIL I TOLD THEM TO CLEAN IT UP! I also had to ask them to put a sign on the door telling guests how to get back in once they went to the bathroom b/c it would lock them out. I had to ask for CLEAN linens because many were soiled (even though technically fresh from laundry). Many chairs were dirty, and I had to have them replace them. I had to ask many times for them to vacuum. It went off well, but it wouldn't have had I not been on them the whole time!

The Lafayette Hotel responded with the following comments:

I would like to take this time to appologize for the negligence that you received while you were here. However, at the time of your event, the Hotel leased the Banquet Halls, Dining Room and Lounge out. Since then, The Hotel has taken over the entire facility. We have All new management and have made Several changes. Again, I appologize for what you experienced here. I assure you that our Staff here is very dedicated and any event here will be a wonderful and memorable One!
