This is my favorite hotel in Louisville. Unique experience, large/comfortable rooms, interesting art and a great vibe. The staff is friendly and helpful. The restaurant is outstanding with a nice selection of local foods. Highly recommended.

The art is eclectic. The statues of children in the lobby are borderline child porn and really not comfortable particularly right at the check-in/out. And I am al Lover of modern Art. Restaurant service was ridiculously slow, inaccurate and not at all informed about the Kentucky elements ( eg bourbons to pair, produce, cheese).

Great access to downtown and it is loaded with cool art! Great bar downstairs as we'll right off the Main Street. Huge golden statue of David outside as well. Very cool hotel and a very cool atmosphere.

A friend recommended 21c and I loved it. The vibe is so cool and everyone was so friendly. The rooms are huge and the bed was amazing! The rug felt wonderful and comfy on my feet. The bath products were lush and I want to go back. The breakfast was dab and inexpensive. I wish I had more time

My brother and sister-in-law had strongly recommended 21c as a must experience hotel. My husband and I were in Kentucky for a family reunion, followed by the bourbon trail. We saved our last night visit for 21c. It was such a wonderful experience. From the moment we drove to the entrance and were greeted by a delightful valet, to streamlined... More

Interesting place, luxury and boutique all in one. Love having the Proof restaurant in the building, always catering to my guest special needs. Wish they were closer to my event this week but can't beat this place. Will be my number one spot while in Louisville!

We stayed where the Star Trek Next generation actors stayed (in town for fan reunion). Wish the bathroom had a better layout and the restaurant was a little more user-friendly ( coffee available readily would have been great on Sunday). Great place. Good value.
