My family of 3 spent one night at the 21c in Louisville, KY this month. We loved that the hotel is pet friendly, and the art on the main 2 levels was very interesting (my son loved the cloud-makers).
We had a double atrium view room, 2 double beds with a view into the center of the building (skylights allowing in sunlight). It was a disappointment for us as a double bed is really not big enough for any couple to share, and the "atrium view" was really just a brick room with a concrete platform (no artwork inside, just lights in the center that were never turned off... almost like a billboard outside your window all night).
We ate roomservice for both dinner and breakfast, both provided by Proof, the restaurant downstairs. The food was tasty but a bit pricy (just like the room).
The location is great, we were able to walk around the area and even caught a sightseeing pony ride a few blocks over... although the city could do a lot more to clean up the area next to the water.
The staff at 21c were top notch, always friendly and welcoming.
Overall we enjoyed our stay, but considering the price vs return I wouldn't recommend it for a family stay... better for couple on a weekend getaway to the city.
