We drove up from Southern Ohio to stay for the night and visit the Ali museum. The Galt House is in a great location on the river in downtown Louisville. There is a great observatory and bar area at the top of the hotel which had nice views of the river. It's a beautiful (but older) hotel. You can expect a clean room. The rooms appeared to be updated but they are definitely a more traditional style with cherry wood headboards. The front desk staff was friendly and the lobby was clean. You do have to pay for parking but the location was so great it was worth the $15.
