Very elegant room, excellent location on river, easy access to interstate, convenient Skywalk system. Service was A+. Only one issue - My room was on the end next to the fire escape, and apparently some birds had a nest there. I live in a rural area and am used to waking up to birds chirping, but these birds made quite... More

A friend and I stayed here to attend the theatre festival 2 blocks away. The Galt House is very convenient for that, and anything else you have to do downtown. Pros: Fantastic service. Everyone we encountered - doormen, check in desk, wait staff - was friendly and helpful. Huge room. We had an executive suite and it was the size... More

Appreciated the late checkout. The hotel really understands the needs of runners on race day. The check in line to register was long but they moved through it very quickly. Nice large room with a fridge & table.

Stayed here for a competition weekend. Suites were nicely appointed, huge, clean and very comfortable with frig and wet bar. Had meals at the Café and at the deli. Breakfast buffet was very well done (café). Service throughout was friendly. There were 3 very large groups there but other than a backlog at the elevators on Saturday, it was not... More

We stayed in an exec suite on the 5th floor. Very clean, very nice staff. Room was great, 2 queen beds with pullout couch. Big living area. Fridge, but no microwave, when I asked for one, they said they had none in the hotel that we could use. That would be the only negative thing. In a room that big... More

I will preface this by stating it has been a little over a year since I stayed here. That said, I was not very impressed by this legacy hotel. The rooms were dated, smelly, and did not offer many amenities. For example, there wasn't a microwave or fridge in the room-- something I have come to expect in the 21st... More

We were able to stay at the Galt House for a special rate as participants in the Kentucky Derby Mini Marathon. Other reviews for this hotel weren't awesome, and we don't know why. Our executive suite was the size of a small apartment, as it contained a living room area with wet bar and refrigerator. The bathroom was quite large... More

Hotel overall quality was excellent - room service was fantastic - both meals I enjoyed were delivered within 20 minutes and again the quality was great. Room amenities were great and the bed felt like home, comfy and cozy. The hotel has always been a choice of mine and will continue to be in the future.

This was my second stay but my wife's first. She was overwhelmed by the cleanliness and beauty of the place . This made her trip all the better and for me that is all that counts. The view of the river at night the amenities available makes this a friendly place to relax . The night life is close and... More

Wish there would be microwave and refrigerator in room. Food bought in the conservatory was so-so. I had a breakfast sandwich from a vendor in the conservatory and it was yucky. Cold. For such a nice hotel this wasn't a very good experience.
