Best for The Kentucky Center..very short walk. Parking plentiful $15 night. Our room had wonderful view of Ohio River. So nice bed linens and spread. Not most economical rate. 24 hour deli is great benefit. Excellent pizza too.

We visited the Galt Hotel solely for the purpose of the Christmas display. $15.95 per adult was a steep fee, but we decided to go through anyway. The only part appealing for adults with no children in tow, in my opinion, is the "KaLightscope" feature. It is really neat, but not worth the price of admission. If you did have... More

We had a three night stay here last week, after reading reviews before I was dreading it and looked to cancel even. So glad I didn't as this place is lovely, staff friendly, all decked out for Christmas everywhere, rooms were more than comfortable, great location. I stay all over the world in leading hotels and this place deserves to... More

Beautiful hotel, all decorated for Christmas. The shows and displays for Christmas are very nice. It was a very festive mood at the Galt House, the Ladies of Liberty show was quite good, the KaLightoscope display was also unique and beautiful. They even have dancing bellmen and a small group of carollers. While my visit was during the Christmas season,... More

I stayed at the Galt House while attending a conference. I had my own room and felt so safe while there. The Galt House is in a great location that has easy access to entertainment and great food. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable and the hotel was clean.

The people, the rooms, the bar area, the amenities were fantastic. The bar area has a fish tank as the bar top which is pretty neat. The location of the hotel is minutes from everywhere as well. Visited the 3rd floor shops as well and bought a few pieces of jewelry. They also have 3-4 shows to go to as... More

We enjoyed our last visit and expected more of the same this time around. The culture of maintenance is sorely lacking in this potentially lovely establishment. We redeemed our trip by taking walks around the city of Louisville which we enjoyed very much

I booked the hotel via the web without any problems. The hotel is in the middle of downtown, close to most major attractions in the city. Check in was quick and friendly. The room was very spacious, with safe, mini-refrigerator and very comfortable beds. The cleanliness neglected some details, but overall it was acceptable. The hotel saw better times, looks... More

This place is an awsome place. The events planned for christmas were special. There is alot of walking. Very large and clean hotel. The event "roast beef" was yucky. But very nice to be able to enjoy a special event and christmas things. Great bellman and they even danced.

My FAVORITE place to stay while in Louisville. The GALT house has the feel of being home with the clean and spacious rooms yet the feeling of luxury.Was locked out of my room at one point and had to call the service counter and ask for security to let me in due to forgetting my room key in the room....
