Lodging in Paducah
The Holiday Inn Paducah Riverfront opened in July 2017. It’s a beautiful property and only @ 7 blocks from the Studio. To reserve when you are taking a workshop at Ephemera Paducah, use this link: Holiday Inn Paducah Riverfront. We don’t have a specific room block but do have a great rate for our students. (This won’t work during QuiltWeeks, however.)
Above the Studio is The Loft. There are six beds in 3 bedrooms and two baths in this 2,500 s.f. apartment. If you have a group coming to take a workshop and would like to stay in The Loft, contact Kristin. If The Loft isn’t reserved by a group for your workshop weekend, look for an email @ 45 days out from the start of your workshop offering up available beds and the chance to stay above the Studio with other workshop attendees.
We have about every hotel chain in Paducah so if you are “points loyal” you can find brands like Marriott Residence Inn, Hampton Inn, Drury Inn, La Quinta, and Comfort Inn & Suites. Visit the Paducah Convention & Visitor’s Bureau site for contact information. I’m also a Tripadvisor junkie when I travel. Check them out for reviews of Paducah properties.
For these properties, I recommend staying in the Mall area which is Exit 4 off of I-24. It is a straight shot to the studio and less than a 10-minute drive. A very nice property for a good price is Auburn Place Hotels & Suites. It’s recently renovated, large rooms, and I consistently hear about their great staff.
If you have a large group and would like to rent a house within walking distance, my friend, Chad Wilson would be the guy to call. He has a very large Victorian House in Lower Town that can sleep upwards of 7. Chad’s cell phone is 270.853-.6972 and you can send him an email.
Located in downtown Paducah is a boutique property, The 1857 Hotel. Absolutely gorgeous space and in the middle of all the cool downtown stuff. Not walking distance but less than 5 min drive to the Studio.
