For a sort of "on the way" business trip stop, and especially being in the not-really-hip Louisville, KY (actually across the river in Jeffersonville, IN), this hotel is very... hip. The decor felt uncomfortably hip at times, making you wonder why you're not dressed up and sitting in the hotel bar. Even though I wasn't paying, I felt like the value wasn't much here for what we needed the hotel for.
Of course, if it were me, I'd be staying in a Super 8 (always my first choice of hotel unless I can find a VERY inexpensive Drury), so maybe I'm not the one to rate this hotel.
The service was slow. It took forever to check in. Breakfast service was painfully slow, and we had to be out on a shoot. We almost didn't get to eat. The one waitress who was there made off-color jokes and insulted us. She also couldn't seem to understand our simple orders. Thankfully the front desk's dinner recommendation was good.
The room was too posh, not cozy in the least. I guess that's the kind of vibe they wanted. It put me off. The room was too big for one bed. There was too much metal and primary colors.
Also, it didn't seem to be in the best area of town, and there was a very loud crash outside my window in the middle of the night. The front desk was unable to solve the mystery of what caused the crashing noise. The place was confusing to get in and out of because you had to get onto the bridge and cross into Kentucky before you could go the other direction on the road.
Overall, it was just a single night's stay in a hotel that was out of place.
