The Galt House is a large but charming hotel. The staff are friendly and attentive, and the amenities are excellent. The Galt House is located just a few blocks away from a large entertainment and dining district (4th Street Live), and a skywalk is available if you prefer not to walk on the street. Very clean and comfortable facility; excellent...

Arrived yesterday. Elevators broken since we arrived. Just walked down from the 23rd floor. One of the hotel employees just said there's "no use giving him an ear full." If there is a medical emergency, I bet they get more than an ear full.

Not up to date at all. The first room I was put in had a big, shared balcony and there were people talking and smoking right outside my window. The chair was seriously ripped and torn as well. The room would be fine for something like a Motel 6, but I'm used to Hilton for the most part, and would...

I tried calling front desk for over an hour and was put on hold, I guess they were way too busy with everyone checking in. We were on...

We were at the Galt House for a weekend for a partial business and personal stay. The location is perfect, close to city, river, attractions, museums and restaurants within walking distance. Even though suites are a bit dated, they are very clean and spacious and have all the amenities. Matress was very comfy. Staff was very courteous. Would stay again.

The hotel was clean but the staff was stuck up acting, I felt like we were bothering them. The parking is very confusing and after checking in we ended up having to move our car so it would be convenient to our room. We didn't use any of the other facilities in the hotel so I can not comment on...

Beautiful views, HUGE hotel, friendly service, and lots to walk to downtown. Would recommend to anyone. We took our family - the kids had fun, and it was a nice hotel. The pool is seasonal, so just be aware of that!

I find my way to Galt House for the D6 Conference every year. It's a fantastic venue located right on the river. Beautiful views and a wonderful location in the heart of downtown. The rooms always exceed my expectations. Staff is friendly and prompt. Thanks for making my stays in Louisville great every time!
