I landed in Louisville at 8p and went straight to this hotel to check in. I was greeted by a young manager who explained that the reservation I made 3 weeks prior wasn't going to be honored. Apparently, the person in my room the night before decided that they were extending their stay. Now I travel quite a bit and... More

Only had a quick 1 day trip but the hotel had been recommended by my brother. The art is very interesting and gives a nice contemporary vibe. The rooms were big and the bed excellent. The location is nice near the river and downtown. I had dinner in a private room and it was delicious. Would highly recommend

This is probably one of the most beautiful hotels I've ever been in. It's really a museum of modern art that happens to have a hotel and a great restaurant attached to it. Beautiful. Modern. Great location. Don't use valet parking ($25); you can park in the garage next door for $7/night ($5/night if you leave really early). Oh -... More

I was so impressed with the art and how it was EVERYWHERE! They did such a wonderful job with hospitality. It was seriously the best hotel and location. It was so easy to walk to all my site seeing destinations. I would go back everyday if possible.

21c is one of my favorite hotels to visit. It is clean, modern, fresh, and comfortable. How can you beat a hotel that combines comfort with art?! Make sure you check out Proof for cocktails and for dinner or brunch. The staff is always friendly and helpful. Be sure to check out the gallery while you are there. And say... More

Hi Meredith M, Thanks so much for your sweet words. I wish I could live here too and I already work here. I hope you like the blue penguins as much as the red penguins when they get to Lexington. We'll be there soon! More

21c should be on everyone's bucket list! The hotel is an experience! An ARTFUL experience!! The hotel is filled with contemporary art from the red studded limo that sits out front, to the rubber ducky that greats you in your bathtub. 21c is a fun, friendly hotel... Proof on Main, a farm to table restaurant is fantabulous!!!

i booked way in advance to get a room at the 21c. i had a late flight, arrived to find that there were no rooms and they stuck me at a horrible convention hotel, terrible. worse yet, they lied about it. the room i'm in smells bad, the bed is lumpy, who cares if they are paying for it... liars!

One of a kind, top notch hotel with a great restaurant and bar. The art is fun, the food is top notch, and the staff is the best. Don't miss if you are in Louisville (or one of the other towns they have a hotel in - Cincy or Bentonville, AR)
