    Hi Elizabeth! Many thanks for your post. We love all of our weddings at the Hotel Lafayette and are always excited to create fabulous memories for our couples.

Re the cake, we weren't sure if one of the cakes were 1/2 and 1/2 and unfortunately didn't discover it until it was time to cut and serve.
