When my spouse was recruited to a job in Louisville, they put us up at the 21c. The suite and the service were fantastic, the restaurant--Proof on Main--remains a favorite, and the art is usually great, and always provocative. We took the jobs in Louisville, and we still take our friends to Proof on Main and recommend 21c to visitors.... More

Couldn't ask for better... service atmosphere comfort location coolness amenities art collections This is an outstanding hotel. We were so pleased to spend the weekend here and explore downtown Louisville from it. We didn't visit the bar or restaurant, so no evaluation for that. The art exhibits were cool (even for someone who generally isn't a fan of contemporary art.)... More

21c hotels are the best! The rooms are well decorated - modern, sexy, great toiletries. The art on display is always intriguing. When we were there the show featured replicas of religious buildings all constructed entirely of munitions. A powerful way to demonstrate the linkage between violence and religion. The restaurant was top notch - amazing cocktails and cheese board,... More

You can't beat the location. Majority of staff was extremely helpful. Read others comments about galleries and art. They are true. We found the room to be OK, but overall, the hallways to the rooms and the rooms were not too exciting and really rather drab. Felt the room was over priced even for a large city. We would not...

My wife and I spent a long weekend in Louisville and picked the 21c after recommendations from friends. We were not disappointed. The hotel itself is nice and the art galleries were fun to explore. We stayed in a Luxury King room and appreciated the extra space and view of Main Street. The room and bathroom were a level above... More

What a blend of local, regional, and international and a great hotel to boot! The museum part of the hotel is a great addition but the hotel itself is a well maintained, comfy, and well located part of downtown Louisville. It is all right there if you want good food and great cocktails and see what the city is all... More

Modern hotel situated right by the science museum, slugger museum & Muhammad Ali center. We enjoyed the art galleries & had dinner at Proof which had a very adventurous menu, also enjoyable. Would consider staying on a repeat visit.

This trip is specifically to visit Mammoth Caves but all the lodging near there didn't seem suitable so we had decided to stay in this hotel in the city and make the early morning drive. It was a great decision as we love the hotel and there are a lot more choices for good restaurants after Mammoth Caves. My kids... More

This was my 5th stay at a 21c hotel. The art gallery here, the bar scene, and the restaurant were the best of the 3 in this chain we have stayed at! The rate was a good value. The room, showed a bit of wear (lampshades, carpet), a bit small, door-boy wasn't too friendly, but Proof on main and the... More

Very artsy hotel. Every where you turn a piece you haven't seen before. Very industrial feel. If you are looking for luxury and conservative, this is not hotel for you. We would not take our children to stay here. Restaurant breakfast service slow and poor all but one day. If you are looking for quick bite, not place for you.... More
