The new 21c Museum Hotel is unbelievably fun and friendly and the art is both surprising and beautiful. My husband and I stayed there the first weekend that it was open because we enjoyed their hotel in Louisville. They really delight with unexpected art and little quirks to keep you surprised. The room was big and very nicely furnished in a clean, modern style. The bathroom was big and even there were a few hidden surprises. We ate at the Metropole and the food was very good. The bar area was very lively, making the dining area fun, if a bit noisy.
We found the staff, obviously new, to be extremely friendly and very eager to ensure we were happy. The hotel's location allowed us to walk everywhere downtown...we never used our car.
We will surely go back again because we had such a fun time.
