4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I attended at the ABA Marketplace Convention in January. My wife and I stayed at the Seelbach and generally enjoyed our stay. It was very cold outside (4 degrees the day we left) and our room had issues staying warm. Our bathroom was also very small, but was expected at this old historic hotel. We had dinner and breakfast at... More

We stayed at the Seelbach for date night. I loved the classy feeling of the hotel as soon as we walked in. Our room was small, but sufficient, with a great energy and historic feel. One of my favorite parts of the stay was the faint sound of big band music we could hear making its way up the venting.... More

We stayed here for a wedding on New Year's Eve and were treated to a historic hotel in the center of town. Our room was small but well equipped with outlets for our pones and ipads and free wifi. The real treat of our visit was the host at the concierge room who had stories of the history of the... More

The Hilton Seelbach really is a beautiful historic hotel and I was really looking forward to my stay there. I chose the concierge level as I enjoy the breakfast and the option for afternoon drinks and snacks. When I pay extra to stay on these levels I do have higher expectations and I am honestly not hard to please. Perhaps... More

Beautiful hotel with old world charm. Perfect location for plays, dining and shopping in downtown Louisville. Incredible staff and relaxing atmosphere. The bar at the hotel is a must see and great place to unwind at the end of the day. We will definitely stay there again.

Rooms are average and bathrooms are tiny! Lobby is beautiful and there is some history about the hotel that is interesting. The Executive lounge is average at best and small area. The location is nice if you want to go to a concert or explore the Fourth Street area.

Stayed here for 5 nights on the 10th floor. Nice room, beautiful furniture and great pillows. Bathroom had a great shower with lots of hot water and good water pressure. Towels were plush and large enough to dry off with using only one towel. Breakfast was nice and tasty but somewhat pricey. Valet parking was also efficient.

If I can save 1 person the pain I've endured from this hotel it is worth the time to write this: the bathrooms are cold, small, cramped on the commode. The beds are lympy, the pillows hard. The valet will rummage through your car and may wreck you vehicle as they did mine. I would definitely skip this hotel at... More
