Tripadvisor Guest

“Breakfast at Paulette’s was divine with scrumptious gourmet pancakes, fluffy muffins and buttery croissants with butter and an assortment of jams. We also really appreciated the welcome wine as well as the turn down service with port and chocolates. They really thought of everything and the coffee service was excellent. I enjoyed it being right outside my room! We will definitely stay again in the future and are already planning our next trip.”

“The service is impeccable; every staff member we encountered welcomed us with warm southern hospitality. We were greeted when we arrived with a glass of wine, and turn down service came with port wine and chocolates. I didn’t think things could get better, and then we had dinner at Paulette’s and it was delicious. Our whole experience from beginning to end was wonderful. This place is truly special.”

Kara W.

“We loved everything about the property! I booked our stay on a whim, knowing nothing about the place and ended up discovering a gem! The rooms were exceptionally clean and comfortable with thoughtful, luxurious amenities. The beds were feathery soft and the robes and towels nice and fluffy. The hotel staff members were warm and welcoming – always courteous with genuine smiles upon their faces.”

“Really lovely hotel with great views of the Mississippi River.”

Alison T.

“One of the two or three best hotel experiences of our lives. The room was beautiful and the location more or less perfect, but the staff was amazing, and the food and drinks were astonishingly good. I’ve never enjoyed chatting with the bar staff while eating (divine) pop-overs and sipping beers more.”
