I was recently on a business trip and decided to make a stop in Louisville as I had never been. After reading some reviews on tripadvisor and some others I decided to go with 21c.
The property itself is great and very interesting and unique. The restaurant was very good and seems like the spot to see and be seen in Louisville. The happy hour crowd was quite large and energetic.
As far as the rooms go, they're pretty bland with dull colors and no unique features. This left me a bit disappointed. Being that the room was $275 per night I was expecting something more along the lines of the rooms at the Joule in Dallas. If they added a little zest to the room itself the stay would've been excellent and well worth the money. As someone previously mentioned you don't even have to book a room here to experience the art/restaurant/etc
The front desk staff were so-so. They were nice but seemed disinterested in anything but exchanging pleasantries. However I ordered room service twice and the two ladies who brought it were excellent and super friendly. Food was great as well.
Overall it was a good stay. I think they need to do something to the rooms for me to stay here again though.
