I live in Louisville and my husband and I decided to have a little staycation. I had never been to the Galt House but, of course, knew of it. We had a king bed room that looked over the city. My advice would be to ask for a view of the river. The bed was very comfortable and the vanity... More

The Galt house is a good venue however we did not get what we purchased. We reserved a Shopping Package for two rooms each with a water front view. We ended up with a view of a pointed roof top from both rooms totally obstructing the view of the river. We purchase a Shopping package for both rooms and it... More

I booked this room through Priceline.com and saved about $20 on a Waterfront Balcony Suite. The room was very large (2 beds, 2 baths, a vanity area, wet bar, pull out couch, 2 tvs). The view of the river was great! I would stay here again, but only if the room was discounted...maybe I'm cheap, but $350 (after taxes and... More

I would not suggest staying here. It's a lot of money for not a lot of satisfaction. Room service was speedy but everyone was pretty rude from the Front Desk to Al J's Bar. (*Not including the gentlemen that helped us to our room at check-in with our bags and back to our car at check-out with our bags. They... More

This hotel has the potential to be a 5* hotel. It's in a prime location, it has great restaurants and bars and great meeting facilities. However, there are several basic areas that come up short. We stayed on a Saturday night after attending the Louisville boat show. Getting from the parking garage to the lobby/check-in area was a bit tricky... More

Huge hotel with great parking and clean rooms. Close to the arena where University of Louisville plays basketball. Good restaurants in the area. Hotel is a little dated but still a very nice facility. Most rooms have a fantastic view of the river.

If you need help ask a security guard or someone who doesn't normal face the public. The public facing staff like front desk and concierge are rude and condescending. I spent 45 minutes looking for my car because the hotel staff took my parking ticket when I checked in and I didn't have record of where my car was. When... More

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary at the Galt House hotel January, 2015. I had requested a room with a decent view since this hotel is on the riverfront of the Ohio River. At the same time, being on a budget, I also selected the least expensive rate on the room selections, so I wasn't sure how all that... More

more than a little overpriced now that they are charging $15 for parking that is not shown when booking .Reviewer Kat E from Germany has it about right but perhaps a bit Germanic. It depends on what you are use to..nice hotel in many respects but also could use new updated and fresher rooms and lobbies. I can not recommend... More
