I booked a king bed non-smoking room less than a week before the National Farm Machinery Show. I was a little leery after reading some of the reviews on tripadvisor, however I was pleasantly surprised. The room was clean and everything was in working order, though we did have a very squeaky furnace fan. The first night we were given 2 full size towels for 2 adults, but the intuitive housekeeping staff left us 3 full size towels for the second night of our stay. I didn't have to call the front desk and request it at all.
The hotel bar was clean, well stocked and our bar tender was friendly. The hotel restaurant was our choice for breakfast one morning and the food was well portioned and the staff was courteous and let us know in advance that they were out of regular maple syrup. My pancakes were not completely cooked but we were there very close to closing time before the lunch hour. The hotel chef had an emergency and had to close the kitchen early the night prior. The hotel staff put a notice in the elevators and let patrons know as they were coming and going through the lobby.
The hotel was close to the interstate and had several restaurants close by. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who is looking for a place to stay in Louisville or nearby. We were approximately 15 minutes from the Kentucky Exposition Center which was nice to not have to deal with an abundance to traffic to get the hotel, just get on the interstate and go.
