“Perfect setup for trial war room”
5 of 5 starsReviewed October 31, 2013
The recent addition of the Speakeasy Penthouse, http://www.hoteldefuniak.com/speakeasy-penthouse?rt=1&ri=14652586, to the Hotel Defuniak’s lineup of services to out of town attorney’s makes it the perfect place to set up shop for trial across the street from the courthouse. With a great work area right in the room, you can comfortably prepare for trial and have a retreat at the end of the day. Tom and his staff know the needs of attorneys during trial and they are always available to assist. Book early!
“Great for traveling attorneys”
5 of 5 starsReviewed October 21, 2013
I have stayed at the Hotel Defuniak twice while having trials in Defuniak Springs. Tom and his crew provide a great, relaxed atmosphere. They will bend over backwards to help with those last minute needs. It is always great to start the day with a great breakfast and return to a familiar face. I highly recommend this hotel!
