If you're facing the river, stay at the newer Gault House on the left. Nice bar and restaurant at the top of the building with great views and comfortable white leather couches, if memory serves me. Friendly staff and nice location.

Stayed in this hotel for just one night on a trip through Louisville. Our room was of a good size as was the bathroom. The free wifi worked well and we had no problems with it. On a booking by August day the a/c worked very well, we were very thankful for it! The best thing though was the wonderful... More

Very nice hotel. We stayed in a 2 queen suite that was roomy and well configured. There was a sink & fridge in the 'living room' which is very convenient. Pool was sunny and clean. It is billed as an historic hotel, which is a little misleading. It seems that only the conservatory is historical, but this was a very... More

Thank you so much for the candid feedback. Some of our best guests are the ones that tell us how we can improve. Our rooms are very spacious. The Galt House Hotel is historic, but the property is not. We can understand how that can confusing. We do hope you come back and stay with us again. More

I stayed at the Galt House in June 2016 for business. The hotel needs a lot of attention and updating. The suite rooms are very spacious but very dark with out of date colors and furniture. Common rooms and hallway carpets are dirty and stained. The rates of this hotel do not match the poor service and facilities.

When we got to the hotel and checked in we were upgraded to a suit. Our room was huge with a balcony. Everything we wanted to do was within walking distance. Everything in the hotel was clean. Would come back again!!

We stayed three nights here during a conference. Our room was in the older part that's been renovated in the past. I'll have to say this was one of the hardest beds I can remember. After one night we drove home and came back the next morning. Our backs just couldn't take another night on this bed. The next thing... More

This hotel says free Wi-Fi is available and there is. However, Internet connection is so slow (less than 1 MBS) and you need to pay extra to get faster speed, though I don't know how fast. It will be fair to describe slow free Wi-Fi is available and there also is paid faster Wi-Fi service, too.

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.
