I stayed here for three nights when in town for business. It is a very chic, relentlessly hip hotel, at times it actually felt like a bit much. But then, you have to accept that you're staying in a museum for 21st-century art. There's a lot of deliberate coolness everywhere, including the bathrooms, the elevators, the hallways. The good: The bed was one of the most comfy I've ever slept on (I was in a king-bed room), I loooved the big square sink in the bathroom (wish I had one at home), my room was immaculately clean, and the folks at the front desk could not have been more helpful. Also the room was very soundproof, which I sincerely appreciate...I hate when I can hear people walking around the hallways, and this place was full but virtually silent. But my stay wasn't flawless; they forgot my wake-up call my last morning (apparently something was up with their system because I wasn't the only guest) and I actually enjoyed the food outside of the hotel more than inside. There are also some touches I could do without, such as the stupid window outside the ladies' room on the first floor that allows people to look in and see women at the sink. Not necessary! I'd go back, though, especially when you compare this place to the other offerings in Louisville.
