The weekend after Valentine’s was the perfect time to visit the 21C in Louisville. They had a great special on rooms.... as you can see... we had a wonderful view of the river and David. Our room was comfortable, modern and clean. Wonderful toiletries. The galleries are filled with stunning art, available to see anytime if you are a guest. Don’t miss the hotel’s restaurant: Proof. We will be back.

Hotel's Favorite
Well travel during the time of Covid is interesting. The21C Museum Hotel seems to take the safety of their guests seriously. We were scanned for temperature during check in and there was plenty of hand sanitizer available as well as a bag in the room containing a mask, gloves and sanitizer. The King room was very nice. The bed was very comfortable and I was surprised how quiet the whole place was. The art throughout the building is really neat and it adds to the calming feel of the establishment. I have to give props to Ashley at the front desk, she was very helpful and incredibly polite. Knowledgeable of the surrounding are and always had a smile on her face. Park at the garage next door.. can't beat $9 a day.

My first time at a 21C property. The rooms were a good size and lights in bathroom were cool. Being able to browse art whenever we wanted was cool. Property is also a great choice for staying near the Louisville Slugger Museum/Factory. Downtown was very quiet when we visited. Service was a little off, not sure if it is their policy or it's due to Covid, but I could get no change at the front desk and as an elite member of loyalty program I had vouchers for drinks. I could not use these for a coke (they have a very small selection of drinks/snacks) even though the bar was closed. It would be much cheaper to use for a coke, but alas, was not allowed. Very disappointing.

Stated only for one night but was a good experience. Staff was super nice, the room was good (it helped that it was a corner room with many windows) and the chicken from the downstairs restaurant for room service: It must’ve been one of the best chickens we’ve eaten. $30 for valet is a little bit steep for the area, you might find a more reasonable alternative. But overall: Would definitely go back and one day in the future we’ll also dine at their restaurant given the food was excellent.
