We stayed here between Christmas and New Years. I hadn't been here in 20 years and it was even nicer than I remembered. I loved the atrium area between the two towers. The location is great...easy walk to 4th Street Live, Louisville Slugger, Yum Center and the Bourbon Trail bars. In cold and rain, you can actually make your way... More

My family and I stayed here overnight on our trip home. We were greeted warmly by the registration desk. The lady kindly assigned us a river view room. The room was spacious and the view was incredible! The room was also very clean. This hotel is large, we had fun just exploring it. It is located close to the Louisville... More

This was a great place to stay! We were in town for a music fest and the room was perfect, staff was friendly. The hotel was a great downtown location along the river and many things were very close by to walk to.

My wife and I stayed at the Galt House before the Derby festival marathon. Check in took too long as there were not enough staff working the desk. Our room was very dated and smelled like someone had poured fabreeze everywhere.... The furniture/furnishings were old/dated. With so many properties in the downtown area in Louisville, I will choose to stay... More

We were here for a girls weekend in Louisville. I booked the room through the hotel in hopes for a better room/location/rate. We had a rate better than through any site and were on the 24th floor with a good view of the river. For the price, it was a decent place. I wouldn't pay over $140 for this room.... More

Girls night out was a complete let down staying in this hotel. Check-in was a joke even with a confirmed and verified reservation before our stay. Bellman was a complete racist and would not take some of our bags. We tried to report him to the front desk staff but no one cared. We were missing linens in the suite.... More

Excellent hotel. Have stayed for business and pleasure on several occasions. Great accommodations and wonderful location. Close to many downtown attractions and interstates. Enjoy the ease of getting around downtown. Rooms are always clean and nicely furnished.

It's a great location and our room was very reasonably priced. The staff was friendly and efficient, but the overall experience was so so, even considering the room wasn't crazily expensive and our expectations weren't all that high. We weren't expecting a 5-star hotel but even with those low expectations we were pretty underwhelmed. The place seems a bit rundown... More

My husband, 9 month old son and I just returned from a weekend-long stay at the Galt House Hotel & Suites in downtown Louisville. We chose the hotel as we were attending a wedding and the Galt House Waterford Room was hosting the reception and we wanted proximity / ease with our young son. I love detailed reviews, so here...

We stayed on a Sunday night for Forecastle fest, which its right next to. Our room was clean, tidy and spacious. The beds were quite comfy but the pillows were not. Wifi was free and strong throughout hotel. It lacks personality for sure but downtown location is good, and it has everything you need.
