Lodging in Paducah
We love Auburn Place Hotels and Suites Paducah. 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 involved in their hospitality. Their large rooms work well for sharing. We are partnering with them for 2022 a little differently. We don’t have room holds for each workshop, but have a rate for our students as space is available. Call the hotel at 270-444-7667 and ask to make a reservation for the Ephemera Workshops. The code should be in their system, but if not, tell them it is code EWS when making their reservations. Sorry, but their system does not allow for online use of the code at this time. The rate is $84 per room, per night, plus tax. The reservations must be made by phone to get the rate.
There are AirB&Bs within walking distance of the studio I can highly recommend: Pinecone Retreat. The Respite Bed & Breakfast is relatively new and about 7 blocks away and the Belle Louise, is just a few blocks away. Both have multiple rooms and could accommodate a small group. The closest chain hotel is one of our newest properties, the Holiday Inn Paducah Riverfront, about 9 blocks away.
In downtown Paducah, you will find a nice boutique hotel, the 1857 Hotel is a fun space and in the middle of all the cool downtown stuff — walking distance to bars and restaurants. I also appreciate that they showcase local artists’ work in their facility. Other downtown lodging options are the Foxbrier and various locations found on AirB&B.
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 Visitor’s Bureau site for contact information. I’m also a Tripadvisor junkie when I travel. Check them out for reviews of Paducah properties.
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 a text.
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 and would like to stay in The Loft, contact Kristin. This year we are housing our instructors in The Loft during workshops. We may open up other rooms/beds to students prior to class. If so, look for an email about 45 days out. However, if you are interested in staying in The Loft at times other than classes, reach out to Kristin.
