“Trendy hotel with spacious rooms and a terrific restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2009

It's an understatement to say that staying at 21c is like staying in a modern art museum. It IS staying in a modern art modem. Every nook and cranny offers a fresh -- and often avant garde -- display. The rooms are spacious with great amenities, including in-room automated espresso machines, and the Proof restaurant is fabulous. The Saturday night liveliness of the lobby had us worried when we arrived, as the lobby was definitely a raucous environment, but the rooms turned out to be a peaceful oasis far from the commotion. Highly recommended.

This small hotel in Louisville could compete favorably with hotels in much larger cities.
Of course, the fascinating contemporary artwork in the lobby area and great restaurant are its major claims to fame, but the rooms were well-appointed and very clean, and the service was personalized and prompt. They handled our family as if it was THEIR reunion rather than ours.
Family members from Atlanta and New York are still talking about what a great pick it was for our weekend together.

Wow, what a find this place is. A vendor made all of my arrangements for travel to Louisville and the surprises never stopped coming the whole time I was there. The 21C is a rare find, a real jewel among hotels. That it's an actual, curated art museum is something I'd expect to find in New York, not in Louisville and I'm thrilled to have yet another presupposition disproved. The art's as compelling as the hotel is grand. I travel a lot and the 21C is one of my best experiences of the last few years.

Stayed here with my wife, newborn son, and dog. Everything was perfect. They had a dog bed ready to go as well as a crib for my son. I will always stay at this hotel when I'm in Louville.

I live in Louisville and stayed at 21C for a fun birthday night out on the town. The people at the front desk were very friendly and accomodating and took great care of us. It's very clean, interesting and a perfect location to explore the best of Louisville. We spent some time at the bar/restuarnt, Proof, which has great drinks and food. I would definitely recommend this hotel to friends and strangers alike! Enjoy your stay!
