Two calls to security about a barking dog and the dog continued to bark. Apparently they called the owners but the dog barked for two more hours. No sleep. The next morning, I left my room as the people with the dog walked by. The dog barked and jumped at me. Thankfully he was on a leash, but it terrified...

Yes. This is a beautiful hotel, but the front desk staff is rude and unhelpful. I've stayed here multiple times and always been happy, but today was just too much. I won't stay here again. The rooms are small and hot water is sporadic, but I don't mind that. It is just hard to justify spending this much money to...

The service and the hotel were excellent. My only complaint is the price. The breakfast buffet and in room dining were not worth what we paid for them. The bar service and quality of drinks was excellent.

Lots of restaurants within walking distance. Must valet your car. Small rooms but very comfortable with great beds. Great customer service at this full service classic property. As a Diamond Member I would stay here again.

The rooms and bathrooms are small. but it's a beautiful hotel and a great location. Most everything you could want is within walking distance and 4th street is directly across from the hotel. Louisville has a lot of history and beauty and was a fun town to visit. Worth the trip.

Made reservations a few months ago- we are Hilton honors diamond member and when we checked in, we were not on honors member floor (hotel was not sold out); given a room with no view, a bathroom that could only be described as tiny, and a closet larger than the bath, but with a hanging rod on the shortest wall....

You know you can expect a great stay from the moment the door opens. You can see the intricate detail of the old world craftsmanship from the moment you step inside. The building takes you back in time to the Gatsby era. The service provides you with a taste of how the wealthy lived in that time. Once you are...

We stayed here 3 nights while in town for Thanksgiving. We love the fact we can bring our dog for a small fee. It is convenient and the staff are very nice. Our water the first night took forever to get warm-then it was only lukewarm, we called and they fixed it while we were out. We used valet the...

The staff is beyond friendly and the place is breath taking. The history of the hotel makes you feel like you've stepped back in time. The location is perfect to enjoy all the fun that downtown Louisville has to offer. We went to a concert at The Palace; so it was perfect.

We certainly love to showcase our history and we take pride in providing a great location to explore our great city, but we take the greatest pride in our "excellent" staff providing a "warm and welcoming" atmosphere.

This is a very fine old hotel that has managed to maintain the "Old Louisville" gentility in surroundings that carry one back to a different time with a more relaxed atmosphere and pace. The rooms are comfortable, not huge, but comfortable, beds are somewhat luxurious, though I am comfortable in saying that no one in management ever sat in one...
