Hotel was ok. Room was spacious & clean, service was adequate. I booked this one when I needed a quick sleeping spot while traveling. I don't think I got much sleep. If you're in town to party, this might be the place for you. The guests left beer bottles and glasses everywhere. There were young, loud, obnoxious and inebriated people... More

The Galt House is a busy high class hotel in the heart of downtown Lu-a-vul. Beautiful place, but we had some problems. We would only be there 2 days for part of our Kentucky Bourbon Trail tours with Mint Julep Tours. (Separate review, but Mint Julep Tours is VERY good). Since stay was short we splurged for a $350 large... More

Called for a blow dyer. 45 minutes later I called again. My call was transferred but the operator didn't tell me he was transferring my call. After at least 20 rings "housekeeping" answered the phone. About 10 minutes later our door opened, no knock, no warning. The man just walked in with a blow dryer. No apology. Fortunately I had...

Big hotel filled with groups and events; not a place to stay for a romantic couple. Employees were not particularly informative and not necessarily concerned with solutions to your tourist problems or requests. Facility and amenities are, however, top-flight with very clean rooms and good service.

Louisville has the Galt House and you will want to stay here as you experience this city's many things to do. It has everything from the worm festival to the opera. The only undergrown caverns with zip lines and bicycle riding to the home of the Kentucky Derby. And make a stop on the bourbon trail while you are there.

18 wedding receptions in one night. We weren't there for a wedding. Loud, built for volume and needed some work. Lots of people having too much fun late. Good location in town but for a hotel on the river, not many views.

Check in was smooth, with very friendly staff. The view was nice - overlooking the river. Housekeeping leaves a lot to be desired. There was garbage under the beds, the tub had hair on the side from where it had not been cleaned/wiped down, floors were filthy. Fortunately we were not in the room long enough for it to matter....

I never expected Louisville. Not like this. I mean, we're talking about Kentucky. Okay, somewhere in the back of my mind I knew there was money in horse racing and that meant money in Kentucky (and not locked up in Fort Knox). It just didn't come out til I presented to the Galt House to redeem my cheap ticket hotel... More

If you're looking for a luxury retreat, the Galt House may have been that 20 years ago, but not now. If you're looking for large rooms (decorated 20 years ago) in a great downtown location within easy walking distance to restaurants and downtown hotspots, the Galt House may work for you. I booked the "Bourbon Package," which offered a reasonable... More
