The LaSalle is centrally located to all points in the Ft Wayne area. I was assigned the Lincoln Room which has an exit to the parking lot which made it great for loading and unloading. Disappointments were that only a continental breakfast is served during the week (oatmeal, yoghurt, coffee, tea, and fruit). I would have preferred eggs of some...

The pictures, description and price on the website will throw you off.

The place is nice enough if your looking just for someplace to sleep. We had a room on the second story which was not any bigger than most hotel rooms. So if you have trouble with stairs make sure you reserve a room on the first floor. Breakfast was contanental. Some not so fresh fruit, packets of oatmeal, bars of...

It was probably a great place to stay 10 maybe 15 years ago. It is in need of major help. Rosanna runs the place. She is accommodating but needs help.

Rose is a charming hostess, and has decorated her house with artistic touches throughout. Don't expect a plastic, antiseptic hotel; this is an old house with plenty of character. An easy walk to the Grand Wayne Convention Center, Parkview Field, and downtown dining or fast food. Sheltered parking in the back.

Well, this was a very relaxing stay. The host Clark collected me late at night from the airport in a vintage Mercedes. We had a nice chat over the 15 min journey. On arrival he had upgraded me to the Hugh McCulloch suite. I was a lone traveller and after my 18 hour flight I needed the sleep. I said...

I stayed in the Hugh McCulloch suite in January of 2016. My husband & I were meeting some friends in the area that weekend. I was looking for something different than the usual hotel room.

Our stay at the Lasalle Inn was just ok. The rooms are very old looking and the maintenance done on the rooms look like they did things on the very cheap.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The LaSalle Fort Wayne Downtown Inn, a small independent boutique hotel, offers an alternative to the only other downtown hotels, two large ones with internationally known names. It offers the finest in downtown luxury in the 1842 home of Civil War hero Sion Bass, a protected historical site. It also offers the only moderately priced standard rooms in downtown in the large adjacent 1901 Neo-Classical house. We are close to all major downtown venues, including the Grand Wayne Convention Center. Lite breakfast comes with the booking, a full breakfast tailored your wishes is reserved at booking for $10. We are the intimate venue of Fort Wayne Jazz Cabaret in association with the Indiana University-Purdue University (IPFW) Department of Music. Amenities include fine original oils from Paris, internet tv with Netflix in every unit, double whirlpool tubs and saunas in the Sion Bass House, an ADA compliant unit, suites with full kitchens,and, yes, with some European flair and interest in the serious global issues of the day along with the celebration of life. We are growing in customer services and eye appeal with the growing downtown entertainment and cultural center around us in Indiana's second and much older city. We are Fort Wayne, come look us over. ... more   less
