Stayed at the Holiday Inn on Farmington Ave and I truly recommend the hotel for your stay whether vacation, business, or otherwise. Upon arrival, Melvin was the front desk agent that greeted me and gave me as much help and answered every questions about Kentucky sites. Amanda and Brooke were sweethearts. Shawn was my guide about Kentucky and emphasize his... More

This hotel is very nice, clean, and has all the modern amenities. Everyone was very nice and we found the customer service to be exceptional. We ate at the restaurant and really enjoyed the food - very fresh, delicious meals. Rooms are very stylish and new. Great distance to the expo center if that's what you're in town for. Great...

This was our first time staying at this Holiday Inn for our annual trip to the Derby. It was perfect. The location is great. We walked over to Churchill Downs on race day and easily got around the city to 4th Street Live and Bardstown Road for some fun. Brooke at the front desk was the best and made sure... More

I stayed in Louisville for one night while attending a convention at Freedom Hall. This hotel was located right off the Interstate, and within walking distance of the Hall. Realistically, if you do not want to walk, you would be able to take the shuttle from the hotel, so that was really not an issue. For me, I always like... More

This was our 2nd time in two weeks to be in Louisville. We stayed at 2 different Holiday Inn's, and I really did like this one better. I like to walk and see things while my husband is working. There were a lot of places to walk to. Church Hill Downs was within walking distance, as was the U of... More

We recently stayed here while in town for the National wheelchair Basketball Nationals held at the Expo Center. We stayed for four nights and enjoyed every night there.

Broken TV (no one to fix it), broken dishwasher in restaurant so serving on plastic, $10 buffet that is not edible (instant oatmeal packets and eggbeaters unstirred), no water in shop to buy... Good location.

Although the room was as nice as could be expected, the hospitality that you would expect from staying at ANY hotel was not there. As we walked in neither one of the two attendants at the desks even looked up. Not once did they say hi or acknowledge that someone even walked in. Even when we approached the desk, we... More

We arrived a little early and our room was not ready. They offered us drinks while we waited. Staff is very accommodating with a can do attitude! Only complaint we had was the Breakfast Buffet. Now worth the price. I think they were scrambled eggs?? Opt for the menu, or try something close by for breakfast! Nice rooms, clean and... More

I really liked the location of the hotel. You are across the street from University of Louisville Sports Stadium complex. The hotel is also about 1/2 mile away from Churchill Downs. The Kentucky Fair/Expo complex is also across the street. There are numerous restaurants within a short distance of the hotel. The hotel is newer and is in the current... More
