“Great Bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2014

Booked this hotel for a convention in KY. Very nice hotel connected to the convention center. Very helpful when it snowed outside. The bourbon bar was very nice and staff was friendly with a great selection of bourbons. Rooms are big and beds are comfortable. Restaurant on site was nice and food was good.

Room Tip: There are 2 parking garages so if they put you in the towers make sure you park on the correct side...

The Rivue Restaurant & fish bar at AJ's made this hotel a delight. The revolving Rivue looks out on the wide Ohio River from the 25th floor creating ever-changing views. The menu was upscale, probably too pricey for some, but the food was fabulous. AJ's is open, informal and airy with an aviary in the center, bar created by a long, shallow fish tank, and ample cushioned lounging areas. Great hangout between conference sessions.

Had a fantastic time attending Abbey Road on the River! Stayed 2 nights, will stay 3 next year. Very convenient having hotel next to festival, could come and go as we pleased. Hotel restaurants very expensive. Wish there were more restaurant options in the immediate area.

I've stayed at the Galt House eight times and have been very pleased -- until this year. It's an older hotel, so I expected some snafus, but this year was awful. The housekeeping left a LOT to be desired, and the elevators are dreadful -- as are the unairconditioned hallways. Ugh! Very sad experience this year.

Room Tip: If you go, stay in the east tower (the suite side). The west tower is older and badly in need of re...

I stayed in the Galt House Hotel in Louisville, Kentucky for eight days to grade Advanced Placement Exams. My stay was most enjoyable. Everything is at the hotel- shops, restaurants, pool, and a spa. The hotel is also within walking distance to the most popular sights - Louisville Slugger Museum, the Ali Museum, the Convention Center, and Fourth Street Live. I loved my stay at the Galt House Hotel.

Beautiful rooms although some views very limited; beds are incredibly comfortable; high quality linens; excellent location; pool area a great place to relax and watch sunset; downtown Louisville is a great destination with excellent restaurants.

Room Tip: Roomy; views can be an issue; some A/C noisy and rattly; very clean

My company paid for me to stay at the Galt House and its always nice to stay on someone else's dime; however, one of these spacious suites would be the perfect weekend getaway for a couple. The suites are enormous with televisions in both the entry room and in the bedroom. The rooms have two king sized beds with firm mattresses. And the AC works so well that you might need a coat. Some of the rooms have fantastic views of the Ohio River which is gorgeous at dawn and at sunset. You can even see the fireworks from Slugger Field!
The Galt House is conveniently located close to Fourth Street Live, the Kentucky International Convention Center, the Belvedere, restaurants, Actor's Theatre, The Kentucky Center for the Arts, and the Ali Center. There is even a pedway that connects the hotel to the convention center.
So if you want the perfect romantic getaway without leaving town, check into the Galt House. Get a bottle of champagne and some chocolate covered strawberries.

Room Tip: Try to get a room facing the river.
