4.5 of 5 stars! Everywhere you look is art, modern, innovative, and against the grain, even in the elevators! My mother was also very amused by the 4-foot-tall red penguins that moved to a different part of the hotel every day. Rooms were aesthetically pleasing, comfortable, spacious and very clean, including the bathroom. Comfortable beds, sheets had high thread count,...

Everything about our stay was great. The valet was great and helpful. The front desk staff welcoming and friendly. Our room was nice, a little oddly shaped and cramped, but still nice nonetheless. My favorite thing was the Nespresso machine in the room. I'm hooked. The museum exhibits were interesting, though art is not my thing. It's in a great...

This place is great. It's got a cool, unique look; beautiful & comfortable rooms; and a whole museum shoved inside of it. I particularly liked being able to get a drink from the bar, wander around the museum, and then eventually head back to my room. If you ever wanted to know what it's like to stay in a rich,...

Arrived to Louisville for Chainsmokers concert at KFC Yum! Center. Wanted a location close enough to walk, but preferred more on the higher end side! Couldn't beat the location, hotel, food, drinks. First time staying - and will definitely be back!

More than just clean and comfortable accommodations, the 21c felt like a destination in of itself. Such fun to discover art in the restaurant, elevators, hallways, shower, everywhere! If you don't take yourself too seriously, you'll love this place.

It's an art gallery and hotel all in one. First time we've stayed in a hotel like this and really enjoyed it. It was a cool experience and that's something I've never said about a hotel. It's close to a lot of downtown attractions and restaurants whether you decide to cab or walk. We picked one of the rooms with...

All aspects of our experience at 21 C in Louisville was above our expectations, from being welcomed, to the room service, food, artwork, clean restrooms, and every so friendly staff. I will recommend this hotel to everyone for a fantastic experience.

I love the atmosphere and fun art at 21c Museum Hotel. The restaurant and bar are also high quality with very friendly staff. Everything was clean, well maintained and the turn down service was a bonus, but my favorite thing was the cozy blanket in my room.
