The Juliet
A Boutique Hotel
800 Jefferson St.
Lafayette, LA 70501
(337) 261-2225
Lafayette has all the usual chain hotels and they all provide a clean decent room for the night. But for that special occasion the 20-room Juliet is Lafayette’s answer to elegance and fine service. The rooms are large and individual, the bathtubs are oversized, and the flat screen TVs are a step up from the chains.
