I found this hotel to be conveniently located to the convention center. Very clean rooms and great views on the upper floors. Seemed like a good deal for being downtown where most rooms go for a premium! I would stay again!

This hotel was the host hotel for the Ironman Louisville this August 2014. Thank goodness they will be having IM Louisville in October from now on. The heat and humidity in KY in Aug. was brutal. The hotel was lovely, the suite was very large as was the bathroom. With 4 of us ladies staying in the suite, it was... More

This was my first full Ironman and we decided to stay at the Galt House as it was the host hotel and close to all the Ironman related activities. the hotel staff was outstanding and made our stay very enjoyable. And I completed my first Ironman race.

The Galt House was a fabulous place!!!! It has a restaurant at the very top floor that has windows around where you sit and eat and it moves slowly in a circle!!! It has other places also to eat downstairs that are not so pricey. My family and I had a ball!!! We took a carriage ride around downtown Louisville,... More

Overall, I found the attitude of many staff members just under the "friendly" level and didn't seem to care if they were helpful or not. Maybe it's just the town and these folks are a product of their environment. They said both towers had been renovated but it appears it was a long time ago. Rooms were so-so. Linens were... More

The hotel was very clean and quiet. Our room was plenty big and included a great view of the Ohio River. It was easy to get anywhere in town whether it was a craft brewery, 4th Street Live, the River, or the trolley. Couldn't ask for a better location or southern hospitality feel.

Huge rooms, friendly staff, elevators ok given the amount of Triathletes & their bikes trying to navigate hotel. The cigarette smoke smell in my room took away from a perfect review. It was strong and I was told an air purifier would be brought up to me but it never was. I didn't have a lot of recourse seeing that... More

This was the second year in a row that I stayed at the Galt House for the IRONMAN event. It is a great location and the rooms are great for the price. It is definitely worth the extra money to get a suite instead of a standard room.

Loved our visit to The Galt House! We were welcomed as soon as we pulled up to the hotel. The bell staff was great and and check in with Bonnie at the desk was wonderful.
