Visiting Louisville for the first time on business, my wife and I stayed at this historic hotel downtown and were very impressed. The common areas, including lobby, dining area and bar are elegant and historic, and the list of luminaries who have stayed at the hotel. We were treated to a talk from the hotel's historian, who regaled us with... More

Only stayed one night for a weekend getaway. Rooms are nice, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was good. Great location: Walkable to most downtown restaurants and events. Starbucks on property and a high end restaurant on site. Fairly price.

I recently stayed two nights. As a Diamond member. I have stayed at many Hilton's. Unlike the Palmer House in Chicago, this hotel has employees whom take pride in great service. I stayed on the Executive floor, super nice and spacious. The hotel maintained it's history while adding some modern updates. We had a great stay and the Executive lounge... More

Beautiful southern charm in a large metropolitan area. Beautiful furnishings and decor throughout. The fitness center is well thought out and spacious. It has exterior windows and lots of equipment. That was a surprise.

Lots of charm in this historic hotel. The rooms aren't very big, but that wasn't an issue for us. The bathroom shower leaked a little, but the roomed seemed to be very clean. Great location in downtown Louisville!

The decor when u walk in is magnificent...then u walk in ur rm. The room is small (I say that generously). Kudos to the photographer! My shower wasn't even big enough to turn around in. I asked for a nice restaurant to eat at, and was told by reception the local microbrewery. ... really. Not at all worth the cost.... More

The room that I payed for was VERY small and overpriced. While the hotel is simply beautiful and the staff were VERY nice, friendly, accomodating, and helpful the room size was so disappointing. The bed was absolutely amazing and the pillows were hard to depart with. I would stay here again, and would recommend it to anyone who asks, I... More

You may be charmed by the historic nature of this hotel. But after that you will be sorely disappointed as the service is horrendous. I pulled up and no there were no valets to be found. I arrived a few hours before check-in and was told they could take my number and call me when my room was ready. When... More

This hotel is not a Louisville treasure nor a Kentucky treasure. It is a National American Treasure. I'm appalled by the ill informed reviews expecting a typical Hilton or cookie cutter property. As someone who travels 120+ days each year staying in hotels worldwide I can testify to the stellar customer service and quality of experience at the Seelbach. From... More

What can I say Charlie? There a few (if any) compliments higher than being dubbed a "National Treasure," or a "bucket list experience." We take an extra measure of pride in receiving such high marks from road warrior business travelers. Staying in hotels 120+ days a year allows you to see the best and the worst in the industry. We...

I had a 20 room block for my wedding. Everything was excellent from check-in to check-out. We had family, bridal party and guests flying in and arriving at all different times. Everyone was happy with the service they were provided throughout their stay. I had a suite reserved for me and my fiance. Upon arrival, some of the furniture (tables)... More
