Lovely hotel, wonderful staff. The hotel is very pretty, very clean. The staff is just so friendly and helpful. We always stay here for a tennis tournament in April, and have never had the first problem here. Will always stay here when in Lake Charles. It is near a mall, a lot of restaurants, and the casinos.

We visit family frequently and this will be the place we book from now on. Renae, Kat, Jerome and Lee were just amazing! The bar was awesome and the food was the better than Ember! The room was really clean and smelt great and the whole hotel was clean and very nice!
