Stayed there for a night. Is a decent place. Has an old hotel charm. Breakfast was not included in our room rate so not sure of how it was. Conveniently located in the middle of town. It has easy access to taxis and the airport.

Marriott experience is always exceptional and this was the case at Louisville Marriott Downtown for recent visit. Warmly greeted by staff, easy check in and comfortable room. When traveling to Louisville area I recommend the Louisville Marriott Downtown.

My family and I spent September 6th at the Louisville Marriott Downtown. This is a very nice hotel with an extremely convenient location. Close to everything, 10minutes drive to Churchill Downs, 2 blocks to 4th Street Live, and within easy walking distance of several other restaurants and bars. Everyone we encountered, from the valet, to the check-in staff, the welcoming... More

Girlfriends drove from Chicago to an event on Friday night at the KFC C Yum center. The hotel was very nice and well appointed . Located within walking distance to everything. Easy access off the expressway.

Attended the ESTO (Education Seminars for Tourism Organizations) conference in August at the Downtown Marriott. I was VERY impressed. The hotel is a short ride from the airport and very classy. Check in was easy and we requested an upgrade to a higher room with a river view and got it. We were on the 14th floor and to the... More

Fine enough hotel but didn't think a Marriott would still charge $9.95 for 24 hours of WiFi and $16 for breakfast (which was provided by my sponsor for the conference). Also, no airport shuttle and $22/day parking? Its just Louisville. Blankets had no ventilation I was baking and sweating my butt off. Also a water main break lead to a... More

starlitdazzle, Thank you for your review. We take your feedback seriously and are very disappointed over the events during stay. While the water main break was an emergency that required immediate assistance, I can understand that a brown water shower is completely unacceptable. We are extremely sorry for this event at the hotel. On charging for WiFi and breakfast, we... More

Very nice, clean and well run hotel. Staff is gracious from the front door forward. Everyone eager to help with a smile. Room is comfortable, clean and quiet. Ask for a room facing the river for a better view. Free wifi. The Champion Sports Bar has excellent variety of beer and excellent food. Had a turkey burger that was terrific,... More

This is one of the nicest Marriott Hotels I have stayed at so far. The hotel is beautiful, the service is good, and they have a wonderful breakfast. Since I have been doing work in Louisville and will do more over the next year, this hotel is my number one preferred hotel in the city.

This hotel is conveniently located downtown within walking distance of museums, bars and restaurants AND the river front. Beautiful public spaces and very nice rooms, although you should get clarification when upgrading because I thought I was booking on the concierge level and the only thing I really got extra was free WiFi and a robe. The banquet food was... More
