For true art lovers this hotel is a gem!! WOW. This Hotel takes itself seriously both in hospitality and in Art. The hotel provides excellent service, rooms, are specious and modern, GYM is cool and specially designed, amenities are of high quality, Bar and restaurant at hotel are very good. Side by side to this high level of hospitality management is a serious attituded of the curator to the choosing of art pieces, changing art exhibitions, and even the morning routine of staff cleaning the different art items- I am impressed! for those who appreciate these two worlds RUN and stay in this hotel, it is worth a visit by itself. Well done.

This was my first time at a 21c hotel but I'm a fan now. Very unique and pleasing experience. You're mainly there for the comfort of the rooms and the hotel was great there. Comfortable with nice amenities. No issue. But the kicker is the art. Great art and fun to see. What a great idea. I'd recommend this place anytime.

We stayed at this quirky hotel during the recent Bourbon Classic event. I would normally love being surrounded by edgy and provocative art, but the nude statues of four pre pubescent children at the front desk inappropriately crosses a line. This is not art and I did not want to look at it every time I visited the front desk. I saw the hotel response to another reviewer’s complaint of the same statues explaining that the artist was highlighting hairstyles that might predict the future professions of the children. Entirely misses the point and overshadows the other interesting art around the property.

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your feedback and letting us know how you felt. It is truly appreciated. I'd like to share some background information on the sculptures you mentioned. We expect that our guests will like some installations more than others; the intention is for art to start conversations. The current display of sculptures at the front desk by American artist Judy Fox reflects cultural and historical diversity and honors the innocence of childhood. The figures, which represent young boys and girls, feature hairstyles and poses associated with the adult roles they may one day take on. A pioneer of painted figuration, Fox infuses the Western figurative tradition with a contemporary consciousness of the body that addresses the development and expression of identity. We invite you to learn more about all of our exhibitions on our website and invite you to join us for a guided art tour on your next visit to Louisville

We’ve stayed here many times over the years when visiting Louisville . It continues to be a great location , contain wonderful art and interesting rooms. All staff wore masks which we highly appreciate! I want to say that M at the front desk deserves to be complimented for his wonderful , professional and helpful job . Thank you! The room we stayed in needed some updating . You do need to request things from house keeping( coffee ect) as they are not cleaning the rooms on stays shorter than 3 days. Absolutely love the bar and restaurant at the hotel.

We had a wonderful stay at the 21c Museum Hotel in Louisville. We stayed in the Cyclone Room and it was like nothing we have seen before. The entire hotel has fun features (stop in the bathroom off of the lobby). I would definitely recommend this hotel to others.
