Welcome to The Lafayette Hotel - a grand riverboat era establishment and a historical landmark.
Here on the banks of the Ohio River today, you can view the same magical beauty that fascinated early settlers in 1788, as evidenced by inscriptions in the letters of Rufus Putnam,
"A country of most pleasant climate and of the rarest beauty and enduring charm. "
The Lafayette Hotel takes great pride in our riverboat heritage and we would like to share our passion for this era with you. The Lafayette offers impeccable service, exquisite food, guest rooms that have been host to many dignitaries, and the largest banquet facilities in the area with a staff to help plan your special event. Let us welcome you - after all, we've been preparing for your visit for over 100 years.
