My stay at the Galt House Hotel was for a convention and meeting. The guest room was outstanding. The meals at the banquets and restaurants were very good. But what made the stay exceptional was the staff. Everyone at the Galt House Hotel worked to make the stay enjoyable and memorable.

Disappointed no coffee station in lobby. In room coffee machine not good, had to pay for coffee and hot tea and then wait ten minutes to get it at Thelma's...

Hotel is in a central location, great for walking in town. Room was clean, and nice view. It did not have a refrigerator, which was unexpected. The hotel itself has a couple restaurants and bars. We only had breakfast at cafe magnolia. It was a nice buffet. Food was hot and fresh. The jockey silks bar has a million bourbons...

Room was in need of major cleaning, too full to offer another handicap room. Customer service lacked and wait staff in Magnolia Café was the worst. Nobody smiled during our stay and they had a full hotel, so guess we didn't matter.

The rooms are huge. The suite with the sofa bed is a nice touch. The shower is as big as some walk in closets. We came in town for the derby and are glad we stayed here was a nice surprise. Had room service and it was good as well.

Extremely long wait for elevators, and they use a flat sheet instead of a fitted sheet on the mattresses so by the time you wake up in the morning you are sleeping on a uncovered mattress. Even the cheap hotels use a fitted sheet on their mattresses. For the price you pay per night this should not have been an...
