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

Our son plays football at the University of Louisville. This has become our 'Home Away From Home.' Initially we selected this hotel because of its location - a ten minute walk to the stadium means we don't have to get into pre- and post-game traffic. Our family and friends have stayed at this hotel over the course of 3 years... More

This hotel had everything we needed! We came in December, so the indoor pool was great. Brought our infant son, and the room had plenty of room for the pack n play and I felt comfortable with him crawling around the room, as it appeared very clean. Restaurant was a great addition. We will be back!

Very nice property. After landing at Louisville Airport we phoned thie Holiday Inn to request shuttle service to the hotel, which didn't take too long for the shuttle to arrive. On arrival at the hotel, we were able to check in very quickly, as the desk clerk had our reservation ready for our arrival. The entire staff was very personable... More

stayed here due to an early morning flight after staying at two other properties this week. One Marriott and another IHG. This hotel made me feel welcome. Food in restaurant was great at dinner and the staff throughout the hotel is amazing. 5 minutes to the airport and a free shuttle! Amazing decor and very affordable! Will definitely stay again.

We stayed for two nights on a recent business trip in a king room with a view toward the nearby University of Louisville football stadium, which, though we didn't try it, looked walkable. The hotel is fairly new, and everything we used was in good working order, including the workout room treadmill and equipment, which is important to me. It's... More
