Every where we turned we were met with great service. The staff was simply amazing!! The accommodations were superior. The hotel itself is architecturally amazing! The wait staff in Café Magnolia provided some of the best service and were eager to assist. This was our first stay at the Galt House, and we definitely return.

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Everyone was so nice. The view from our room was beautiful. Some people commented that the hotel was outdated but that was not our experience and we've stayed at brand new hotels.

Really loved this hotel. Its huge and has a great location. There is tons of space within the hotel and lots of options for a drink. The rooms are nice. I loved the top bar - fantastic views of the river and the city. Also loved Alt J's. The bar is so cool and is a fish aquarium. They don't... More

We walked into the Jockey Silks, and it is a beautiful place, with all the dark wood, and with a nice selection of bourbons. Amber was our bartender that evening. The set up of the bar is great, and I LOVE the fact that you do not site on bar stools, but in a chair and the bar is actually... More

Staff was friendly, shuttle was accommodating, rooms were clean and LARGE. My only complaint is that the classic rooms need a little TLC. It's truly historical and I'm looking forward to coming back with my family to tour the great surroundings. Can't wait to come back again.

Stayed in a suite for a business trip. Shared the room with a co-worker and we had plenty of space. It had a bedroom and a sitting area with a desk and tv that was completely separate from the bedroom The staff was excellent and provided excellent recommendations for meals.

This is an enormous hotel with two towers and a conservatory situated on the banks of the Ohio River in downtown Louisville. The staff was friendly and the service was satisfactory. We had a wonderful view from our room. There are a number of dining options on the property. It was very busy with a sizable convention in the hotel.... More

It is one of the older hotels off the popular 4th street area of Louisville. The hotel is right off the river and has some spectacular views. The rooms are large and the beds are comfortable. Rooms need some elbow grease as the windows were dirty on the inside and carpets were needing an update. They didn't vacuum in three... More

Stayed at the Galt House for one evening recently. The place needs a face lift. I was expecting more from looking through the website/photos. The hallways smelled a bit musty or smokey. I stayed in a suite which was really large that our group loved but it needs new soft goods, new couches, new drapes, improve the look of balconies.... More

This place is a nasty, run-down, dirty old hotel. Yuk. Used earbud on my room floor for three days, in plain view. No-one cleaned the carpet apparently. Shower was disgusting with mildew. Bad. Then you get to checkout and they hit you $15 for an airport shuttle. Please choose a nicer hotel next time we have a conference. Hopefully NTOA... More
