Lodging in Paducah
Our partner hotel for 2020 is Auburn Place Hotels and Suites Paducah. We have special rates for some workshops (links are on the workshop descriptions). Our visitors who have stayed here rave about the convenience (right off of Exit 4), breakfast is included and the people there are so. stinking. NICE! I think there are also cookies at night. Their recently renovated the rooms are large and work well for sharing.
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. This year many workshops have “Loft pricing” included. If you and some friends are registered for the weekend, one of you should grab it and the apartment is yours! If The Loft isn’t reserved by a group for your workshop weekend or the instructor is staying in the private Queen Room, 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.
There are a couple of B&Bs in walking distance of the studio I can highly recommend: Mavhouse or Pinecone Retreat. Also search on AirB&B for “Southern Comfort Paducah” and the rooms listed are in a house virtually across the street from the Studio and run by one of our former mayors and her husband. The Respite Bed & Breakfast is brand new and about 7 blocks away.
There are some nice boutique hotels in downtown Paducah. The 1857 Hotel is absolutely gorgeous space and in the middle of all the cool downtown stuff. I also appreciate they they showcase local artists’ work in their facility. Not quite walking distance but it is less than 5 min drive to the Studio.
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. The closest chain hotel is one of our newest properties, the Holiday Inn Paducah Riverfront, about 9 blocks away.
Most of the reputable chains are located 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.
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.
