Stayed in Luxury King room. Room was large exceptionally clean and well decorated with beautiful windows overlooking quaint tree lined street. Service was excellent from valet to front desk. The bed was extremely comfortable!! We also enjoyed walking through the art museum. A perfect get away for the weekend! Thanks 21c!

We stayed at Museum 21c in a balcony room as a birthday treat. The staff were very friendly, the room was fabulous especially with such a huge balcony. We had drinks in the bar and breakfast at Proof on the Main which where both were excellent. Loved the quirkiness of the hotel with unusual museum exhibits and the red penguins.

This was one of the best overnight experiences we have had in years. This place is so unique from the art on display to the quality of the amenities in the room.

Needed a short Spring break and have never been to Louisville. I was sure we would have a nice stay as the Cincinnati 21c is always a delight. The Louisville location did not disappoint. The service is top notch. The room lovely. The art thought provoking. We loved our visit and highly recommend the hotel.

My friends and I were meeting in Louisville for a weekend of bachelorette fun and we looked no further than 21c. The hotel is unique and had that modern, southern flair I wanted! Upon checkin we were informed that we had been double booked and our room was going to be "downgraded" to a regular double. I say downgraded, but... More

We used Louisville as our base to explore the bourbon trail & stayed at the 21 c because it was rated the best in town, and had received much acclaim. It is a nice hotel, and the concept of a hotel intermingled with a free modern art museum is really cool. The lobby has a changing display and there are... More

I had a company conference in Louisville and we stayed at 21c. Great things to say, rooms were immaculate, the staff were always available and prompt, food was great! Very close to many things in the city! No complaints, would return! Please visit the bar - Proof - Great Woodford Reserve cocktails; manhattan's and old fashioned's!

We've stayed here annually virtually every year since the place opened. It's our go-to choice when we visit the Humana Play Festival each spring. The rooms are comfortable and interesting (the "light well" gives you the sense of daylight, even when you don't have an exterior window.) The staff is gracious, relaxed, and accommodating. And the fantastic art in the... More
