“Excellent downtown hotel-close to stuff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

It is the usual Hampton hotel but the location is great--just a few blocks from Fourth Street with soooo many restaurants/bars to choose from. Beds are great--very comfortable. Staff was great to work with and the breakfast hostess was outstanding. The front desk staff gladly printed my boarding tickets since the printer in the Business Center was out of ink. One problem that was quickly taken are of: There was an RV parked in the parking lot and 15-20 people were LOUDLY partying outside it at 3am! I was on the 6th floor and could hear them. One call to the front desk and a couple minutes later the security guard shut them up and cleared them out.

Best hotel ever!!!
I had to go to Louisville for a week of computer training. My biggest concern was to find a clean hotel with no bedbugs. I read other reviews here about the Hampton Inn downtown Louisville and decided to stay here. I am so glad I did. When I first walked into the hotel to check in I noticed how clean the lobby was. I was greeted by Erin who was so very nice. She made me feel right at home.
I got room 702 when I first walked into the room I was so impress on how clean it was. I could smell how fresh and clean the sheets was. It was so refreshing. The room was spotless. Today is my last night. I used the shuttle everyday to go to my training. They took me and picked me up everyday. This is so convenient.
Breakfast was also so good. House cleaning was excellent every day when I got back to the hotel from training my room was clean and spotless again.
When and if I ever have to go to Louisville again you can be sure I will stay here. This hotel, the employees, and everything about it was the best. Thank you all for making this trip one of my best ever.

Great location, walking distance to 4th Street Live, super clean and comfy. No bugs. Stayed in the king handicapped suite. Had a huge roll in shower, separate sitting area with sofa bed, desk, and mini fridge. This place was perfect! Will definitely stay here again!!

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.
