We were in town for the Forecastle festival: the location was perfect, we walked everywhere. Very close to resaturants and bars. The service was very fine. Only issue maybe the thin walls and the window sound insulation: we could hear our neighbors very clearly and even if we were at high floor, we could hear all street noise. Bottom line... More

Stayed for the holiday weekend and selected this hotel based on the location across the street from the KFC Yum Center. The location is great, the parking is convenient and cheap at $6 per day, and the rooms have just been remodeled. Our room faced 2nd Street and the street noise is loud as mentioned in other reviews but it... More

The Courtyard by Marriott Downtown Louisville is not bad. Not bad, is not great, but it’s not bad. First, this hotel is somewhat difficult to arrive at by car. I approached the hotel during the afternoon rush hour headed in the wrong direction. I had to go around two blocks (due to one way streets) to approach the hotel in... More

We are so glad once you finally fought through downtown Louisville traffic, you were able to check into the hotel. I agree, it is sometimes frustrating to get into the garage during rush hour, a difficulty hard for us to prevent. Our proximity to downtown dining, entertainment and attractions is to blame. We are glad you took advantage of our... More

We had a great stay and enjoyed the city of Louisville. The location was great and we were able to walk to everything. Clean, great service, friendly, and the rooms were big. We were also able to walk to the Louisville Waterfront Park, louisville 4th street live, the YUM center, and all over downtown.

Room of decent size and clean. Staff friendly although not the sharpest crayons in the box. Great location to be w/n walking distance of ballpark and other downtown attractions, but the noise of motorcycles outside the window, at 12:30 a.m., was too much. Couldn't sleep. For this type of hotel at this location, sound-proof windows should be a given. I'd... More

Close to 4th Street experience but then most of Louisville is near to 4th Street. Friendly staff and nice good size room, typical Courtyard casual dining. I was on 5th floor overlooking the highway and at times it was very noisy with motor bikes roaring past. Weekdays were better than the weekend when late night revelers returned in the early... More

I was very pleased by the front desk staff. They were well trained and very professional. They made me feel right at home as soon as I walked in. I was there way too early to check-in but they kept apologizing to me and got us in a room early even though they were completely booked for the night.
