The Conference Center and Ballroom areas were remodeled in 2012, including the spacious lobby area, which can be used as a pre-function gathering place for cocktails and registrations. The Legends Tavern is located just off the lobby, and is also available for use as an event room for private parties, weddings, and reunions. In addition to two on-site restaurants and our Lafayette Executive Catering Service, the ballroom is also located in the restaurant district with many major chain restaurants and favorite local spots nearby.
