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.

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.

Use caution with this shady company. They refused to honor the best rate guarantee even though all requirements as stated in the T&C were met on time. They just keep saying they can't find the rate, so I sent them a screenshot to prove it. Of course, the screenshot is not acceptable either. Then they said the claim didn't follow the T&C, but they would not say where the claim failed. Any excuse, I guess. Also, when figuring total cost of the stay for this particular hotel, add self-parking at $22 a night or valet at $32 a night, if needed. If you still want to stay here, look into their gift cards. Right now they're offering a $25 bonus with every $50 gift card purchased. It says gift cards can be used for stay or restaurants, but considering they also say they have a best rate guarantee, I'd use caution here, too.

I arrived at the Galt house for my Birthday celebration staycation getaway with a few friends the first night then the remaining weekend all me by myself. It was a beautiful getaway, the views off the balcony were breathtaking. The suite was amazing and inviting once you walk into the suite not room. It was roomy, comfortable and most of all breathtaking! The hotel staff was kind and welcoming they gave me a birthday card and a sweet dessert with Happy Birthday written in chocolate sauce. The first night the heat didn't work and they meaning maintenance went and got all my guest blankets and a small heater that belonged to Dave the maintenance gentlemen, thanks Dave. But sure enough the HVAC team were there to fix it early the next morning. Sol and the front desk staff thank you for making a queen feel welcomed to your beautiful establishment. Mr.Raymond thank you for the hotel recommendation for my hotel stay, my Birthday relaxation getaway was surreal. My guest were all in awe,thank you to the staff for helping my guest find the suite amidst the construction in the hotel. To the bellman person's thank you for all your help as well to make my staycation easy with my luggage and items for my stay. I will definitely spread the word of the new renovated Galt House Hotel. I will surely be back to stay more often as my place to getaway from home for a short weekend staycation. You get a 10+ and my business always, keep up with the great customer service and welcoming atmosphere.

Ashley Kuscynzki was amazing. The whole week she did an excellent job of taking care of all aspects of our trip and continually took care of my needs. I'd recommend this hotel forno other reason than her. She deserves a raise and if the Galt won't give her one, my company would hire her in a heartbeat. Great view, great place but Ashley made it special. Go see her and tell her AJ sent you.

Great hotel for a conference. The staff members are extremely patient and helpful. Initially my room was not ready when I returned after they contacted me ll I received a free upgrade. My new room was one of their apartments.
