WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind., May 16, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The Whittaker Inn, a one-of-a-kind modern Inn located in the Midwest, has opened its doors to guests and the Greater Lafayette Community.
Nestled within 25 beautiful wooded acres, The Whittaker Inn effortlessly combines the charm and intimacy of a European Country Inn, with the modern amenities and sophistication of a big-city, luxury hotel. With unparalleled service, comfort and cuisine, The Whittaker offers an elevated experience and an exciting new lodging alternative for Midwestern travelers.
Proprietors Andrew and Elizabeth Whittaker, both Purdue University Hospitality and Tourism Management alums, have returned to the Greater Lafayette Area after 20 years in the hospitality industry on the East Coast, to build the destination property of their dreams. The newly constructed 2-story Whittaker Inn features 13 spacious guest rooms, 2 premium suites, versatile gathering spaces, and the on-site reservation restaurant, "The Whittaker Kitchen." *
"Andrew and I are thrilled to come back to a community that has given us so much. For the past seven years, we envisioned The Whittaker Inn to be more than simply a hotel, but rather a place where every guest is warmly welcomed as a friend; to gather, dine and get a great night's rest!
"People are craving unique, elevated experiences and our goal is that The Whittaker will set the standard for personalized service." - Elizabeth Whittaker, Owner
The Whittaker exterior pays homage to the traditional Midwestern farmhouse, while the interior boasts modern amenities and elements of clean, contemporary design. Throughout The Inn, vast windows flood the interior spaces with natural light and afford guests splendid views of the tree-lined landscape and tranquil setting.
The Whittaker is centrally located just an hour northwest of Indianapolis and two hours south of Chicago.
Andrew Whittaker captures the location perfectly: "What's not to love about this site? The Whittaker is just so secluded from everything, yet only five miles from Purdue University, and less than ten miles from the shops, dining and attractions of Downtown Lafayette."
Rooms and Suites: Each of the 15 spacious Whittaker guest rooms and suites are uniquely designed to reflect Andrew and Elizabeth's passion for travel and experiencing other cultures. Inspired by different cities and countries, the rooms are decorated with original pieces of art and one-of-a-kind furnishings. While sleek, stylish en suite bathrooms feature elegant touches like plush robes and handmade soaps.
The Whittaker Kitchen: This culinary centerpiece welcomes guests with globally-influenced cuisine, and inspired American fare, artfully crafted by Chef Andrew and his team using the freshest, locally-sourced ingredients.
All Whittaker Inn room rates include daily made-to-order breakfast options and freshly prepared baked goods, along with a "Happy Tapas Reception" - delectable small plates paired with craft beer + fine wine. (Monday thru Thursday evenings.)
A Place to Gather: Andrew and Elizabeth have created a distinctive property welcoming not just visitors, but the whole Greater Lafayette community to "Celebrate, Collaborate & Educate".
The Whittaker Inn has multiple gathering spaces to be used by guests or reserved for private professional and social gatherings for 50+ guests. Events are enhanced with customizable menus from The Whittaker Kitchen – from luncheons and energizing coffee breaks, to cocktail parties with passed hors d'oeuvres, or multi-course, sit-down dinners.
* The Whittaker Kitchen is open to the public by reservation only. Reservations must be made 48 hours in advance.
