“Busy area, busy hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2014

For the most part we had a good stay in our suite. This is like many other Courtyards in other locations has the standard amenities, with helpful, friendly staff, which is why we like staying in the Courtyards. Unfortunately we were there at the same time as the state fair, which is right next door. The room was quiet, but the parking was tricky due to the local activities. The other thing to be aware of is that the bistro closes at 10 or 11 pm, so if you arrive after that like we did, you need to make other meal plans. The bistro is nice when open and has a good selection. Location is handy to the airport and seems to be the best hotel in the airport category.

This hotel is so Conveniently located to the fairgrounds ! we were going to freedom hall for a concert and it is a very nice safe walk there from this hotel.
The shuttle will take you to surrounding restaurants or other places if needed.
The only thing was they charge for the buffet breakfast which they have the same thing on it that is continental in most hotels. but the coffee is complimentary ! .
The bed was one of the most comfortable bed i have ever slept in !!!

So in terms of location, you are right next to the airport. It is not incredibly close to downtown. We had an issue with checking in a little early. When your flight gets in at noon and you haven't slept since 3:00 AM, the last thing you want to do is be told your room isn't ready by noon. Being from NJ I have always been able to check in early, so being told to come back in 3 hours was not what I wanted to hear. Other than that, the staff was friendly and the hotel seemed clean and taken care of. If you are just there for a night and need a place to stay you are fine. If you are trying to experience the nightlife in Louisville, get something closer to downtown.

Room Tip: Back side of hotel faces an abandoned parking lot with an amusement park behind that. This might mak...

The staff is so nice and they will go out of there way to please their guests. We did not have a car but wanted to go out for dinner. They help suggest a place, dropped us off and then told us to call when we were done to pick us up. Then was surprised when we went to tip and even said it was not necessary. So nice......

The Front Desk and Housekeeping staff were excellent. I had some concern about bed size when we checked in. The room was listed as King and the beds I thought were closer to Queen. I am 6’5” 300 plus pounds, and my wife is also very tall. I spoke with the front desk staff; and without blinking an eye they upgraded us to suite which I thought was just fantastic.The front desk staff also helped my wife with her costume for the fest by providing some copies and logistical help. The Housekeepers made the suite shine, and were extremely friendly. Great Service for a good price. Great Staff. Nice hotel!!! Staying in the middle of summer the air conditioning worked exceptionally well. I like it cold when I sleep and that happened.

They did't not have free breakfast it cost 11.95 plus tax. It would be better if it had a larger outdoor pool. Theirs is very small and indoors.This hotel is impossible to find.Staff was friendly, the room was clean bright and had a wonderful bed.

We arrived at Courtyard Louisville Airport Saturday June 21st. We were met by such cordial staff and made to feel like family. The pool was great and the room was clean bright and had a wonderful bed. Our room was right at the elevator and yet we never heard a sound from it. I would return without a thought of staying anywhere else.

Room Tip: Wonderful view out the back windows of the theme park.
