Each hotel employee I came into contact with was friendly and helpful. The room was clean, and comfortable. The best thing about the hotel was the location, conveniently located in the heart of downtown. Unfortunately, the hotel needs a bit of upkeep. Our rooms had a variety of things needing repair, from broken door chains to broken chairs and peeling... More

I don't think anything could be improved upon...well, one small thing...On Thunder Day, people arescamming the elevator queues by going to 2nd and 3rd floors riding down and staying on resulting in the 1st floor patrons, who follow the rules and get in the queues, not being able to load in an already full car. My suggestion would be to... More

The Galt House is in the thick of things downtown, for sure. Really cool spot! The hotel itself is huge and the service is amazing! There are shops and restaurants all over inside, and on top is the restaurant Rivue, with a couple of revolving sections so you can view the amazing waterway while dining. Way cool and awesome cocktails!... More

We stayed here for a Volleyball Tournament with our daughter. The hotel did a great job making us feel welcome. Our stay included parking for both vehicles and wireless internet in our room. We greatly appreciated both of these things being included as they were a source of stress to me prior to our arrival. The front desk staff were... More

Very nice hotel with lots of amentities. I enjoyed the convienent service of having resteraunts and the sky access walk available in the hotel. I had to travel to the Kentucky International Convention Center and the sky walk made this walk very simple.

This is a gorgeous hotel in downtown Louisville. Rooms are very clean and spacious, and include a separate living room. Beautiful lounge and easy access to everything. And don't forget about the free parking.

Paid close to $500 for one night. No valet parking and had to park across the street from the hotel. We felt unsafe and disregarded. Certainly overrated. I did not care for the staff. The rooms are outdated.

We thought since the Galt House was the official hotel for Derby and all Derby related events we'd stay with them for Thunder Over Louisville. We paid 4 times the normal room rate and was told it would allow us an exclusive experience for Thunder Over Louisville as no one could be on the properties without wristband identification as a...

This is the best place to stay in Louisville. It is on the river and close to all attractions. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The suites are very roomy and comfortable. It rained the whole time we were there and because of the inside walkways we never got wet. I love this place.
