“Hampton Inn did it again!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

My husband Wayne and I were traveling for our 25th wedding anniversary and one of the places we wanted to visit was Louisville, KY. We booked our stay at the downtown location in Louisville. It is only one of four Hampton Inns that have a bar! Our gracious hosts upgraded our room and gave us complimentary drinks at the bar. Later that day we had a problem with smokers in the hotel next to our room. We were disappointed thinking we might end up in a regular room away from the smoke (even though the smokers were being removed from the hotel the smell was horrendous). Instead management upgraded us to the Presidential Suite!!! AWESOME! We felt like royalty, we will always remember this Hampton Inn, you guys did it again!

Room Tip: Become an Honors member and get an upgrade when available. All rooms are comfy, spacious, clean.

We visited Louisville and when we were unable to book into 21c Museum we booked the Hampton and we are glad we did. This is a very convenient hotel near the trolley stop and with a very nice lobby bar and breakfast area. Plus it was about a third of the price of the 21c Museum. it is tremendous value.

Went to Louisville for the night - Great location and price compared to the competition. The staff was great upon arrival and overall the stay was nice. The hotel is about a 1/4 mile from 4th street live and is going to be your best bang for the buck. The only downfall was the early wake up call from someone with a hacksaw cutting a pipe above our room. I believe this to be an anomoly though and would stay here again on future visit.

The Hampton Inn in Downtown Louisville provided excellent accomodations. The staff was very helpful, the room was spacious and clean, the heated pool was great. The shuttle that took us wherever we wanted to go in the downtown area was great! A good breakfast, as well. I'm already booked for my return visit.

In town for the Ironman. The staff was friendly. Rooms were nice. I would stay here again. The staff kept bottles of water available for all guest all weekend. Accomidated all the guest by having earlier breakfast times available for the athletes. Used their shuttle to get aroung. Maid went about and beyond.

Room Tip: Ask for a refrigerator. Not all rooms have one.

Hampton Inn has been my hotel of choice for many years. Clean, quiet, great breakfasts, helpful staff.....nice rooms. They got it right. Always nice to know the bedding has been cleaned since the last guest....Also, I loved the desk in this room.....took pictures of it in hopes of duplicating at my home. Big and roomy with nice curves to it. People at the front desk could not have been more helpful. For the most part, what I like about the experience is the hotels all seem to be kept up to the same standard and when you make a reservation, you know you can expect the same kind of quality, with few exceptions, wherever you go.
