Homewood Suites Downtown Decent?

Is the new Homewood Suites hotel on 635 W Market Street in a safe location of Louisville? Staying with kids, walking to all the tourist museums. Is this a safe area? One review said the area was questionable so I’m wondering. Thanks!

No location is 100% safe. The uncertainties of travel are not for everyone, but downtown Louisville is far safer than Washington, DC.

It's just around the corner from a 4 star hotel, nice restaurants and walking distance to the downtown museums. While no place is ever completely safe, downtown Louisville's tourist areas are fine. Just keep your wits about you as you would anywhere when you travel.

Louisville is a joke compared to DC. Much smaller city, much safer. That area isn't the best part of downtown. It's not unsafe, just a bit underdeveloped (they tore down too much for surface parking). If anything, it feels a bit vacant. Also, Louisville isn't a downtown city.

Make sure you make it into the neighborhoods. Bardstown Rd, Frankfort Ave, big four bridge, Cherokee Park, Old Louisville, Butchertown, downtown New Albany and Jeffersonville IN downtown.

Just a thought. Priceline and Hotwire. Bid or look at offers for four star hotels only. You’ll get the Marriott, Galt Hous, Hyatt or higher. You’ll get a great price at a guaranteed safe property.

Linda, let's face it, they'll get the Galt House if they do that. Until it's renovated it's not the best hotel, but it's such a good location, who cares right?
