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.

Room was way too pricey for what you get. $1000 for four nights is too much!! The food was overpriced and limited selections. Who serves biscuits in the South for breakfast without gravy? Not enough staff for a group our size. Took way too long to get through the buffet line.

They had a conference of creepy old men who made you feel unsafe and tried to force you into rooms with them. Security and staff didn’t care! Just played it off. We were scared to leave our rooms!!! Galt House get it together

It started out bad at check-in. We were there for a convention (1000+). The front desk person that "served" me was rude and didn't appear to enjoy or care about his job. He told me I had reservations for two rooms. When I showed him my confirmation that clearly showed one room, he argued with me and finally said "OK, I'll just cancel your reservation." I looked surprised when he turned away. I actually thought he wasn't going to check me in at all. When I finally got to my room with all my luggage, I began putting some things away in the front closet and on the desk. When I walked to the bedroom I was shocked to see some dirty cleaning wipes laying o the bed. I figured I'd relay that info to the desk when I had a chance. I went to put away my remaining clothes in the dresser. When I opened the dresser drawer I was appalled to see dirty women's undergarments! (see photos) I went down to the front desk and told them what I'd found. The lady at the desk was shocked and began finding me a replacement room. She asked the gentleman that checked me in what else she could do. He tossed her a free meal and free drink ticket. I explained that all my meals and drinks were covered by my convention registration and thee guy took the tickets back without comment. I wasn't offered anything additional, nor was I offered help to relocate my luggage to the new room. When I got to the new room, there were no washcloths. I called and asked for a couple and they told me I had to come down and get them! I was there for four nights (at a cost of just under $1000.00) and housekeeping never entered my room. During the days I was there I noticed some of the same trash in the elevators and around the floors remained there for 2 or more days. I wondered if they had any housekeeping at all. Others in our group had similar experiences (though without the undergarments in their dressers). In general the staff other than those serving our meals (buffet style) appeared uncaring and oftentimes rude. The meals were barely edible. Everything was dry and/or overcooked. I understand that it can be difficult to serve a large number of people, but that's not an excuse for not being prepared. I've stayed at this location on a number of prior occasions both for conventions and on business and I was looking forward to staying there again. I was sorely disappointed in what has happed to this hotel in the past two years. I'll likely never return.

Dear valued guest, Thank you for your visit and participation in the recent convention. While we received extremely positive comments throughout the conference from many participants as well as the organization, I am very sorry that your experience did not match that sentiment. Please accept my apologies for any inconvenience. We are very proud of our staff overall and I assure you there was no change in ownership. Your comments will be shared with our team and where needed adjustments will be made. I trust you will join us again in 2023 when your organization returns to legendary Louisville. Stay well and stay safe. Martin van der Laan Vice President of Operations
