Lodging in Paducah
Our partner hotel for 2021 is Auburn Place Hotels and Suites Paducah. We have special rates for our workshops using the CORPORATE NUMBER EWS which you will input on their registration form. 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. They recently renovated the rooms which 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 and would like to stay in The Loft, contact Kristin. This year we are housing our instructors in The Loft during workshops as many of them are doubling up on teaching classes to maintain social distancing. If you are interested in staying in The Loft at times other than classes, reach out to Kristin.
There are a couple of B&Bs within 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 and also new is the Belle Louise, just a few blocks away.
In downtown Paducah, you will find nice boutique hotels. The 1857 Hotel is absolutely gorgeous space and in the middle of all the cool downtown stuff. I also appreciate that they showcase local artists’ work in their facility.
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 a text.
