Priding itself on being the happiest city in America, Lafayette has plenty to smile about – not least its location in the heart of Louisiana’s Cajun and Creole region, Acadiana. The area has one of the most celebrated food scenes in the States, with jambalaya, gumbo, boiled crawfish and pecan pie all must-tastes before you leave. The best hotels in Lafayette help you join the feast, either through their own restaurants or by offering easy access to the city’s best eateries – book one via Culture Trip.
This fresh, full-service hotel in Lafayette is near the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, making it ideal for students, their families, faculty, and anyone in town to support the Ragin’ Cajuns sports teams. The fact that fans are a short distance from Pelican Park – home to various youth baseball tournaments – and Moore Park, with multiple soccer and softball fields, is particularly convenient.
