This hotel is one of our favorites. We travel to Louisville often, and have stayed at most of the hotels of any consequence. And this is by far our favorite. The rooms are comfortable, and well designed. If you can get a higher floor on the riverside, the view is beautiful at night. And the hotel is very convenient if you are there for a convention or meeting at the convention center. Cost is not outrageous, and the staff is considerate and helpful. We would recommend this to anyone, and now will always choose it if there is a room available.

Room Tip: All are great but for the view, choose high floor riverside

After writing about the poor housekeeping standard we found a couple of days earlier at the Marriott Renaissance in DT Nashville, the Marriot in DT Louisville was very clean. Nice hotel and good location in the DT.

We stayed at this hotel over the weekend to attend a concert. From the time we valet parked to check out, we were treated like royalty! The staff wanted to know how they could go above and beyond to make our stay wonderful! The lobby is just beautiful and feels very upscale. It was lovely being able to use the skywalk to get to various locales in the downtown area! It was a chilly evening and the skywalk took us straight to the Yum center for the concert- no freezing necessary! Did I mention Champions, the awesome bar located right in the hotel?! We went there for a late night dinner after the concert. There was a wait, but they call your cell phone when your table is ready! Service was great and the food was delicious!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Marriott and plan to go back there often when business or pleasure takes us to Louisville!

We stayed at the Marriott for the recent Jimmy Buffett concert at the KFC Yum! Center. You could use an enclosed elevated walkway from the hotel to the Center and never have to be outside. The hotel was beautiful, the staff was courteous, the room was spotless, and the proximity 4th Street Live! and downtown dining was superb. To top it off, we stayed in a 9th floor, river view room that we had Pricelined for $60 bucks the week before tickets went on sale!

We stayed at this hotel for 1 Friday night, while in town for a dance competition. The hotel is within easy walking distance of 4th Street Live, as well as many other restaurant options.

Hotel~Lobby is large, modern, and beautiful. Everything appeared clean and well taken care of. There were 6 elevators, so there was never much of a wait. Any employees we encountered were friendly and helpful.

Room~We stayed in room #1405 which had 2 double beds and a view facing the river. I was very pleased with the room. I loved the large bathroom and the Bath and Body Works Aromatherapy products! We could never hear anything through the walls from any neighbors, but the room next to us had someone coming and going from their room constantly and you could hear the door shut each time.

Pool~The pool and hot tub area were completely over-run by groups of young cheerleaders staying in town for a competition. The pool area itself was very nice, but we were unable to enjoy it due to the girls constant screams and shrieks. We stayed for about 10 minutes and couldn't handle it any longer.

Parking~Parking at the hotel is $21. There is a lot behind the hotel that charged $10 overnight. On-street metered parking was free after 6pm, but if staying overnight, the meters must be paid starting at 7am.

I would stay at this hotel again without hesitation. Just be aware that due to the close proximity of the Convention Center, you may be sharing this hotel with large groups.

We were staying here for a concert at the KYC Yum! center. The staff of the hotel was great and the location was perfect. I will gladly stay at this location again if I should ever be attending an event at the Yum center

Stayed for Superbowl 2012 and was very satisfied with my stay. Everything you expect of a Marriott and the conference facilities were excellent too. Was able to walk to 4th St, the Muhammad Ali Museum, Louisville Slugger Museum. Staff friendly too. The reason I can't rate a five is that I prefer boutique style service and accomodations as I like to diverge to smaller businesses since I own one.
