“Visited for a wedding”
Reviewed March 1, 2014

Had a great time. Great rooms, clean and excellent staff. Room service was good. The sky lounge nice and jockey bar has a wide variety of bourbons for tastings. Overall a great place to stay near restaurants and locations.

The sheets on our King Size bed were obviously not the right size. Flat sheet on the bottom did not cover the mattress and top sheet inadequate as well. No mattress cover on the mattress. Sheets were probably queen size flat sheets. Unacceptable.

Came to Louisville for business. Stayed at the historic Galt House next to the river. Outstanding. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The elevators are fast. The employees I encountered were all service oriented and very friendly--they must take happy pills to be in such good moods. Definitely coming back.

Room Tip: Ask for the river/city view on higher floors

Really struggled with a 3 or a 4 star here. Stayed here for a conference and had a very good time. We had a suite with 2 "queen" beds but I think they may have been full size.

Positives:
-Everyone we met was incredibly friendly and helpful
-Bed was very comfortable
-Bathroom was spacious and laid out well
-Separate living room with lots of space to work and spread out
-WiFi worked really well
-Really cool bourbon bar in the hotel
-For being right in downtown, parking was very affordable
-Great location for a conference, nice meeting rooms, easy to get around, UPS store right in the hotel
-Location is really easy to get to and semi-convenient (Louie Links, an indoor walkway that runs all the way down to 4th street live, is awesome in the winter. But it's still a 10 minute walk to most of the good restaurants)

Cons:
-For being down on the river, the view was just OK. The hotel is perpendicular to the river, not parallel, so you don't get great views of the river. We were just looking at the Yum Center
-The fridge was so big it didn't fit in its assigned space (good and bad I guess)
-No Starbucks in the hotel! (You can walk to one in the convention center via Louie Links though. The coffee at the local coffee shop was not good, even though the service was very good.
-The "convenience" store in the hotel closed pretty early in the day.

I have grabbed this place on priceline a couple of times when places by airport are full. This hotel is huge with two towers. Cool bar in between the two. Relatively easy to access if you hit the right exit. You will find that interstates and downtown Louisville somehow don't mix well--you can't get there from here! Good, basic hotel I have used for 1 night on a couple of occasions.

Excellent business hotel but would also be good for a weekend getaway. Though it's not old, it has a sense of style. Friendly bar in the atrium with a decent wine selection. Several restaurants plus a bourbon bar. Large, nicely appointed rooms, good WiFi. Outstanding fitness center with panoramic views. No pool though. Negative: two towers. If you're in one tower and want to get to the other (say, to go to the gym), it's a long schlep. Good value. Previous night I stayed in a suburban Hyatt for close to the same price, and the Galt House had a much better vibe.

Everything about our 3 day stay at the Galt was excellent. Parking was easy, check-in, check-out, room service, cleaning service. Not one negative thing to say. I dont understand why the reviews are not better than they are. I was a little leary at first about staying because some of the negative reviews but we were with a group so we didnt have much choice. Glad they chose the Galt! Had a great time. Thank you!
