“Great location and a great place to stay in Louisville.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2014

The Gault House is the perfect spot to stay and enjoy in downtown Louisville. The hotel offers friendly and knowledgeable staff, and it is within walking distance of great places to visit such as the Louisville Slugger Museum, the waterfront, and 4th Street Live. I definitely will be a repeat customer.

Handicap accessible room was okay. Could have had more space to maneuver the wheelchair. Used roll-in shower and flooded the whole bathroom floor. Otherwise, a very convenient hotel to stay in when attending an event at the YUM Center.

The Galt House is a massive hotel with more than 1200 rooms. The front desk staff were especially helpful and courteous and we enjoyed our one-bedroom suite very much. Even though it was not a "water view" room, we could still see a large swath of the Ohio River from our 12th story window. We were in the tower that did not appear to have been renovated since the last century but it was comfortable and we could live with some scuff marks. The bed was comfortable and there were several outlet options for our various devices.

Room Tip: Room 1268 was close enough to the elevator lobby so that we could hear the ding from our living room...

My daughter plays on a travel volleyball team and she was playing in Louisville. This hotel was booked for us by someone else. At first there were concerns about the location in respect to the venue. No worries. This hotel was beautiful, lots of room, and very convenient to the Expo Center! The only downside was that our room was located close to the interstate and that was somewhat noisy. The staff was very attentive and there were numerous dining options both conveniently inside the hotel and within walking distance. Parking was a little chaotic but there was a lot going on in the area on the night of our arrival. I would definitely stay in this hotel again.

Spent three nights here while touring Bourbon Country. Loved the river views and our tour bus met at the hotel. Reasonably priced breakfast spot. Walking distance to great restaurants, bars and other attractions. Not a 5 only because the bed was horribly uncomfortable. Shower could be improved for a 4 star hotel. But we had a great time and the staff was accommodating!

Our conference was in the convention center and this hotel was nearby. I like to stay in hotels that aren't so "corporate", that have more culture and charm than big hotel chains. I was excited to stay here because of the history and is looked lovely on the website.
Needless to say, it didn't really live up to the hype. It was old... not cute antique... but just old and out of date. There were closer hotels to the convention center that I wish we had stayed at as they were more convenient and had better accommodations.

The Galt House was an excellent hotel and walking distance to Yum Center for concert and many other downtown museums, shopping, bars. Reasonable price for the quality of a full service hotel. I would stay here again.

Room Tip: Executive suite excellent size for a family of 4 or 6. Noise was not a problem from freeway or other...
