The staff was very helpful and the room was great! The shuttle service they offered was very helpful instead of taking a taxi somewhere! The bar service even though they closed at 11pm, the staff was knew alot about the burbun run and about many different different drink combinations! Overall it was a great stay

Yes, there is some street noise, but this hotel is very convenient, walking distance to Fourth Street Live! and other downtown attractions. Huge lobby sitting area with bar, indoor pool, workout room, complimentary breakfast. Room was very comfortable.

My family would not stay at this location again. Lack of sleep from street noise all hours of night, and the morning hours. The pillows in the room needed to be replaced. The hallways had a bad smell not sure where this was coming from.

Thank you for providing feedback after your recent stay with us. I was sorry to see that you had a restless nights sleep due to the noise from the downtown streets. Our location, in the middle of the medical district, can sometimes have a lot of emergency vehicle activity. I'm sorry that this caused a disturbance to you. Please contact me directly if you are back in the area in the future and I will personally handle your reservation to ensure the quietest room location possible.

We spent 3 nights at the Hampton Inn Downtown (Louisville, KY) the second week of July while attending a convention. This property is convenient to the convention center and some shopping and restaurants on 4th street. While it is not as prestigious as some of the more pretentious properties in downtown Louisville, it does have the advantages of no charges for in room internet, parking at no charge and a complimentary buffet breakfast. If you add all this up you easily save $50 or more per day compared to other offerings in the area. The lobby and public areas are probably nicer that you would find in most Hampton Inns.
The only problem that I had was that we had booked a King room and when we checked in, they had us in a Queen advising that there were no King’s available. This wasn’t a big deal, but I didn’t even get an apology from the check-in clerk. Our room was a corner room on the top (8th) floor and I believe that it was smaller that some of the other standard rooms. Often times corner rooms are ‘quirky’ as they are tucked into some left over space and that was the impression that I had of the room that we had. The bed was comfortable, but sort of sagged in the middle which kept you in close contact with your spouse as it was an uphill battle to get away. It was warm that week and the ‘through the wall’ air conditioning unit ran most of the time, which was a little noisy in the small room. Outside of those issues, the room was clean, well equipped and well maintained.
I would recommend the Hampton Inn over some of the other Louisville offerings where we have stayed in the past. I will also give it another try and hope to get a better room the next time we are in Louisville.

Thanks for taking the time to write a detailed review of your recent stay at our hotel. I appreciate the feedback and recommendation you gave us. I'm glad that our location, free WiFi, free parking and complimentary breakfast all added to the value you felt you received by staying here. I'm sorry that we were not able to honor your bed type, as that is typically not a problem. Occasionally, guests extend their stay with us unexpectedly and this causes a shortage of a particular bed type when the hotel is at peak occupancy. I hope we will have the opportunity to be of service to you again in the near future. Thanks again for your input.

Stayed overnight for a business trip. Hotel was modern, clean, decorated more like a higher class hotel. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Nice open spaces in lobby for breakfast, bar and meeting people. We were walking distance to a nice restaurant row. Room amenities were good.
I would stay here again.

Overall Impression: My family of 4 (2 young kids) stayed in the hotel for one-night while in Louisville area visiting family. The hotel is very nice for its price point and completely up to date. It's a great value and we will book again the next time we're in town.

Check-In: I was not at Hilton Honors elite status, but was treated courteously as one would expect. The check-in process was fast, which was appreciated since I had two anxious kids in tow.

Room: The room was clean and modern, with everything we needed for our one-night stay. Stayed in a double queen room without fridge/microwave on 7th floor on a weekend night. The TV was unable to get about half the channels due to poor satellite signals (there was no storm, however).

Pool: The pool is large and appeared clean (I just watched the kids swim), but the shallowest end is 3 1/2 feet, so it might still be a little deep for some kids to swim without you or floaties. They were out of towels in the pool area, but a request to the front desk yielded a fresh supply in a few short minutes.

Parking: There isn't much parking right in front of the hotel, but there is overflow parking next door and garages nearby.

Breakfast: There was a huge variety of hot and cold items, and everything I had was good. The kids liked the make your own belgian waffles with whip cream. Service personnel took your plates as you finished up, even though there were trash bins there for you to do so yourself.

In Summary, we would have liked to stay longer at this property, and had more time to enjoy the pool, fitness center, and the bar. We had a pleasant, no issue stay, and had everything we needed. Our rate was inexpensive for this class of hotel in a downtown location. The next time we're in town, this hotel will be at the top of our list.
