The 1857 Hotel

All ten of our boutique rooms offer visitors a unique and distinctive hotel experience. From vaulted ceilings to exposed brick, our hotel rooms beautifully blend modern decor with the industrial design of the original building, which dates back to the 1800's. Within eyesight of the Paducah Riverfront and adjacent to the historic Market House Theatre and the preeminent Luther F. Carson Four Rivers Performing Arts Center, guests of the hotel find themselves literally at the heartbeat of Paducah.

With no less than 10 fantastic local restaurants within walking distance, guests have unlimited options from which to choose. Downtown is also the proud new home of a several distilleries and local craft beer breweries. Many of these venues, including The 1857, feature weekly live entertainment and, as a result, downtown is truly bustling and very lively on weekends! While all of these entertainment options are the reason many guests seek downtown - and The 1857 - we recognize this may be problematic for others. As we never want our guests to be uncomfortable, please be aware that weekends are very lively in downtown! With multiple room options, we invite guests to discuss any concerns with us when booking weekend stays.

​Combine our location and our facility with our own brand of Southern hospitality and you'll find the most unique boutique hotel experience in the region.

The 1857 Hotel Event Center

From weddings and receptions to corporate events, the beautiful event space at The 1857 is the place to be. The gas fireplace with seating,
the fully stocked bar and the stage for entertainment ensure that creating ambiance isn't necessary around your event.
Your guests can dance the night away on our original refinished concrete floors,
flow outdoors to our unique bricked alleyway and find refreshment at our fully stocked bar.

If that isn't enough, we've taken care of the decorating for you with an array of beautiful, one-of-the-kind art pieces in a variety of mediums.
Want a decorating style all your own for your event? We work with florists and event planners to ensure that
our space fully completes your vision for a perfect event.

If you think your event could benefit from some staging or overnight rooms, we are happy to provide you with a package that will allow you
to book some or all of our unique, distinctive boutique hotel rooms to fully accommodate the needs of your event and guests.
