#1 of 20 hotels in La Crosse
2021 Travellers' Choice Best of the Best
Welcome to The Charmant Hotel, a 67-room upscale boutique hotel in historic downtown La Crosse, Wisconsin. Our hotel is a renovated candy factory, built in 1898. Architectural details of the original building have been preserved and reimagined, including maple wood flooring, wood beams, and exposed brick. Some say these materials still emanate the sweet smell of candy. Regarding our name, Charmant was a premium line of chocolates produced by the former Joseph B. Funke Candy Company. Charmant is also the French word for "charming," reflecting the hotel's friendliness, whimsy, and allure. Embracing locals and visitors alike, The Charmant Hotel is the heart of hospitality in La Crosse. Our rooms and suites feature premium amenities. Event spaces are available for business gatherings or private dinners. Our restaurant features a warm, inviting ambiance serving market driven, rustic, globally influenced cuisine using fresh ingredients sourced from local and regional farmers and purveyors. Offering daily breakfast, lunch, and dinner service, the dishes emerging from the open kitchen are fresh, simple, and down-to-earth. The 75-seat restaurant offers outdoor patio dining and a private dining room. Additional food and beverage venues at The Charmant Hotel include a cocktail bar and lounge, a "parlour" offering coffee and spirits, a rooftop terrace serving wood-fired pizza, and a sweet bar with pastries and handmade confections. Bon appetit!

Weekend stay at the Charmant was nice. We did encounter a few staff mix ups over the stay but all was figured out. The views were gorgeous and the rooms were very comfortable! My family had a nice time but want to give honesty to the hotel for your success.

The Charmant is just the kind of hotel you want to stay in for a long weekend -- clean, luxurious in a great location with fabulous views. We really can't say enough good things about it. The bed was so comfortable. Might be the best hotel bed ever ;) It was so relaxing. We will definitely come back. (And LaCrosse has a lot to offer too - check it out!)

My boyfriend and I came to La Crosse to visit some friends and we wanted to go somewhere nice and this place was perfect! I normally have a hard time sleeping in 'new' places but fell asleep instantly and had a restful night in their comfortable bed (my boyfriend said the same thing too)! I loved the little coffee shop and the chocolates were delicious. I wish their rooftop bar was open, but the lobby bar was nice also. This hotel is close to everything so it was easy to walk to bars and restaurants. If we come back to La Crosse, there is no doubt that we will be staying at the Charmant again!

What a charming hotel! We stayed here for Octoberfest weekend. What a perfect place! Quaint, with quality & cleanliness. Valet was a great bonus with all of the traffic around. Walking distance to downtown restaurants, the River walkway & the festival activities. It’s not a cheap stay but worth it.

Room Tip: Cute rooftop bar, be prepared to pay valet during busy times of the year- only $15 a day, not bad.

Beautiful warehouse architecture especially nice with dog friendly environment. Enjoying meals in the Lounge with our dog made for a great (family) stay! Great riverside parks across the street. Excellent food and drink options available onsite. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
