I'll start off by just pointing out some of the positive notes about the hotel. It's located downtown in Louisville which is not terrible large, so its a great location for walking to most of the surrounding attractions. The Yum Center, Muhammad Ali Museum, The Louisville Slugger museum, 4th Street Live, the Opera House, Louisville River-walk, and the Evan Williams distillery are all very close. This gives you plenty of options to walk to on your stay. A short drive down the highway will get you to some must-see attractions such as Valhalla Golf Club (PGA championship site) and a long list of bourbon distilleries. Ease of moving around is definitely one of the positives of this city. There are also a number of restaurants with excellent bourbon selections, some of which can not be purchased in store because of exclusivity. I recommend Z's Oyster Bar and Steakhouse for proximity, bourbon selection, excellent service, and a can't miss selection food (try the Walu, if its available).
Now, the hotel itself is simple, clean, and what you would expect from a Marriott. Excellent service, a good dine in restaurant (enjoyed my breakfast buffet, thank you), and a nicely stocked concierge lounge. The lounge has a great view facing north towards Indiana. We caught a great view of all the fireworks near the river and around the city on the 4th of July. Also, don't go without getting one of those fresh chocolate chip cookies.
Lastly, the staff was great and tended to our every needs. I thank them and the city of Louisville for putting on a great time.
