Welcome to The Galt House Hotel also known as Legendary Louisville®. No other hotel can grant guests access to Louisville like we can. The Galt House Hotel is the most sought after hotel in downtown Louisville and a key part of many of the city’s traditions as the Official Host Hotel of the Kentucky Derby and Home to the Command Center for Thunder Over Louisville, the nation’s largest fireworks show. As Louisville’s Only Waterfront Hotel™, The Galt House Hotel is quite simply the best place to experience Derby City, authentically. Your stay is accompanied by views of the Ohio River, and its seven bars and restaurants including Walker’s Exchange, a Kentucky Brasserie; Swizzle Dinner & Drinks, a sexy, swanky, social experience with swirling rooms, perched 25 floors above Louisville; and two original founding members of the Urban Bourbon Trail, Jockey Silks Bourbon Bar and Down One Bourbon Bar. The hotel is centrally located to all that Louisville is known for including 4th Street Live, the museum district, the Urban Bourbon Trail, and nearby Louisville International Airport (SDF). Known as the city centerpiece of Louisville, The Galt House Hotel embodies the excitement and energy surging through town.

This hotel is in a great location in Louisville. The room was huge and nicely decorated. It had a great view of the river. The hotel is large so there were a ton of guests but overall had a great experience.

We are thrilled that you enjoyed the experience, location and your room. Thank you very much for visiting and we look forward seeing you again.

I spent 5 nights here while on business hosted at the hotel. The property is clean and my room (1607) was in good working order with serviceable desk and clean bathroom with double sink. The day after my first night in the hotel the room had not been serviced by 3 pm. I called the front desk as was literally told: "We service the room every three days. Didn't they give you the letter about that." I told the desk clear that I expected the bathroom to be cleaned and supplied with fresh towels daily. She replied: "Well, you'll have to call the desk every day to request that." I replied: "I'm going to quote you in a Trip Advisor review and I expect to see the bathroom cleaned and fresh towels left daily." I'm on day 4/5 and it's worked so far, but such attitudes are unbecoming. Our meeting rooms had highly variable heat (especially on the 1st floor) and some of our participants were wearing outdoor jackets in meetings. Overall: marginal quality and you can do better at nearby hotels.

Responded yesterday
Thank you for your insight and business visit. I am very sorry for the inconvenience but am also sure that this was merely a poor choice of words and no ill-intent. Frankly, our competitors work under the same concept and in most cases we are ahead of them. We are very proud of our team members and how they maneuver in these different times. Nonetheless, this could have easily been resolved with one call and one request. It could also been resolved in person by any other associate or manager. There was truly no need to mention a social media review in order to get the request fulfilled. We look forward seeing you again in the future. Stay well, Martin van der Laan V.P. of Operations & General Manager The Galt House Hotel

The sheets on the bed are TERRIBLE. It’s like trying to sleep on starched crepe paper. I stay in 50+ hotel rooms a year, and your beds and sheets are by far the worst. I’m sure you get this feedback often. I cringe when the organizations I work with announce a conference at the Galt House. Plus we were double-charged for parking.

We appreciate your visit and feedback. I am sorry that the sheets on your bed were not up to your standard. We actually do not receive this type of feedback often, but we will certainly share your comments with our laundry company. I am very sorry for the inconvenience. While I clearly understand your comments, I trust we can agree that our 1,310 room hotel is more than sheets. We have 7 award restaurant & bars with a large variety of options and a large array of bourbon choices, 130,000 SQFT of renovated flexible meeting space, a superior fitness club, a great authentic staff and a terrific location to name just a few. We truly hope to see you again in the future. Stay well, Martin van der Laan V.P. of Operations & General Manager The Galt House Hotel

I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone who's staying in Louisville. Our room in the West Tower was very nice, Swizzle's Restaurant inside the hotel was delicious and had rooms with rotating floors overlooking the city/river, and the location was perfect!! Book the West Tower for the best views of the Ohio River, best access to all the hotel restaurants, and close to all local entertainment and distilleries/bourbon trail!

We are consistent return guests to the Galt House. We love it. The remodel they did a couple of years ago was perfect. It still has the charm that it always had. Miss the aquarium bar-it’s the only thing I didn’t like about it.
