Perfect place for watching the sun set over the Ohio River! Lots of good places to eat from high dollar to fast food. Enjoy the view from the Rivue, as well as the food. Joe's Crab Shack, which has outdoor dining overlooking the river has a great atmosphere also.

I've been happy with my 4 days stay at the Galt House. Big rooms and very quite. No noise coming from the corridor because a couple of doors are dividing the bedroom from the entrance area. Big bathroom with a nice and wide shower. Air con a bit noisy. 24 hours cafeteria.

We stayed at the Galt House Hotel Aug 1-4, 2015. I reserved an Executive Suite with 2 queen beds and a pullout sofa for my family. After a highly successful stay several years prior, we were looking forward to another outstanding stay. We got to the hotel at 3:30 pm (check-in was 3 pm or after). There must have been... More

The Galt House is on a terrific location. You are able to enjoy every thing from the river front, dinning, museums to the Burbon trail. The hotels rooms were fine other than my heating and cooling unit was a little noisy. Looking forward to returning to complete the trail.

The Galt House is very large, but very welcoming. The rooms were a bit dated, but comfortable. Make sure you request a king size bed if you want one, otherwise you will be given a two double bed room. The staff was friendly, and outgoing. We were pleased with our stay!

This is a fine hotel in a great location. It is seriously in need of some updating in the rooms and fitness area. The staff was, overall, excellent and helpful. My suite was spacious, but, oddly, lacked much furniture in the sitting area. Balcony had no furniture and lots of spiders. The common areas are excellent. Overall a decent value... More

The best things this old hotel has going for it is the location. The hotel is fairly clean, but it is old and needs some remodeling especially in the hallways and public areas. Overpriced medium food.

This hotel is in a fantastic location. We were minutes from anything downtown had to offer and walking about felt safe and secure. The rooms are well apointed, clean and comfortable. Not surprisingly, parking is not included but cost me half as much as a recent trip to Cleveland. Staff were very friendly and oerall a good impression was made.

Overall we enjoyed our stay, we did the romance on the river package and had a great weekend. The hotel was fun and in the center of all activities, but we probably felt we could get a very similar experience from a less expensive hotel.
