Historical Hotel with history: The Lafayette Feb 02, 2012
I have never been to Marietta, Ohio until i was invited to a wedding there. The wedding was being held at the Lafayette and i stayed there for 2 nights. The hotel is not bad, the history pertaining to hotel is worth a read as it dates back to the early 1800s and surprisingly is still in use today.

Key points I liked about the hotel was the lobby & staircase. It has this Victorian look about it and the staircase when folks ascend and descend is reminscent of the scene in the movie "Titantic". The hotel was a restaurant and serves the regular 3 meals a day.

Key points i did not like about the hotel was the parking. There is a small parking lot located to the left of the hotel, right by the Ohio River. I did not like the hotel parking becuase space was limited and it is public parking as well.

Our room i shared was decadent and even thought the history had this Victorian feel to it, our room looked Victorian with a 80s looking TV! i wasnt really feelin' it!

I would recommend booking like at a Holiday Inn but if you want to stay at a place that has a 'grandness', book here
