We were there for a cheer competition at the end of December. Hotel is huge but it was beyond capacity. I have never had to wait in line for an elevator, we waited 30 minutes one night and I finally climbed a few floors and caught an elevator on some higher floors. Trying to get to check-in with car is...

Normally we can't afford a hotel like this. We chose this hotel because Hotels.com gave me such good deal. We were there for the Duke vs Louisville game. The skywalk to the KFC Yum Center was great! Our room was fabulous and great view. If we got another great deal we will definitely stay here again!

Check in was smooth and the desk clerks were friendly and helpful. We used the valet parking because of the convenience. Our rooms were located in the west building, with a...

Galt House was well-run for such a large property. Staff was incredibly friendly and often addressed me on a first name basis. I appreciated being able to walk anywhere and ease of catching a cab. At night the steam pipe organ on the riverboat fills the air with a concert. If you have a waterfront room and/or balcony you can't...

We went for date night and have a nice selection of small plates and drinks. The bar area doesn't require reservations and we have a nice table overlooking the eastern half of downtown. The oysters on the half shell were tasty only bested by the seared scallops. The Dirty Rotten Shame was anything but - a delicious dirty martini with...

Took my 8 year old cousin to Christmas At The Galt House. We had a blast. The Galt House is beautiful at Christmas. There was so much for the kids to do. I bought a package deal and it was well worth the price. We stayed overnight too.
