The Galt House was a very pleasant surprise - very charming with a great staff. I didn't want to stay at one of the usual chains, so coming to the Galt House made me feel like I was home. With just a couple of minor elevator issues during my stay, I'd genuinely recommend that if unique is what you seek... More

Because of the time it took for elevators to get to the floors, anywhere from 5 to 15 minutes, we spent the majority of our time walking to the 16 floor. It seemed the staff just did not care or this situation was a normal thing. Would think twice about this venue

This was our second time to stay at the Galt House for a conference, the first was in 1996. The hotel is still very nice, rooms are clean with all the amenities you would expect. We stayed on the Suites side of the hotel. The staff, especially the concierge staff are excellent.

I stayed for a convention in 2012 and adored the property...This weekend it was still great for so many amenities and options on property, but I felt like it was lacking an overall cohesiveness. Multiple restaurants had staff issues, the beds were extremely uncomfortable and the shower door didn't shut right as well as the bathroom was missing a fan,... More

Try taking a shower - fake tub which moves under your feet, towel rack out of reach of shower, no heat lamp in bathroom. Not enough electrical outlets by night stand for two people to charge their phones. Friday night dinner took over 50 minutes to our salad, it was like they forgot our 2 tables - they gave us...

While the hotel was clean and the staff were great, I really expected more for the money we paid. Elevators were on the fritz, almost impossible to get to your room or back down from your room. Great location but I wouldn't stay there again. The air conditioning in the room was noisy and hardly shut off at all.

We stayed in a 2 room suite w/2 queen beds. Very large rooms w/2 TVs was great to be able to still watch TV after kids went to sleep. Also had pull out couch available. Could easily sleep 6 people in this room.

The Galt House was a nice hotel, but it wasn't anything above average. The dining options at this hotel are limited, which was a bit disappointing. Our room on the 23rd floor was nice and clean and had a view of the river. Staff was nice too.

If this place didn't have an historical reputation, it wouldn't be in busines. This hotel is the equivalent of New York's world famous coffee served in those little blue cups. Looks terrific from the outside, but at the end of the day it tastes like sh........well you get it. My wife and I came expecting a nice stay in Louisville... More
