My wife and I found ourselves having to spend the night in Louisville, Kentucky because of a business commitment.
We were not looking forward to the prospect. This is not the kind of place we would normally visit by choice. No Four Seasons.. No Mandarin Oriental, we booked into 21C Museum Hotel blindly. It was listed as 'best' in Louisville, but what does that really mean?
I have to say that we were both delighted and astonished at the quality of the hotel and particularly with the art collection. The hotel is more museum than hotel and the collection is not bad at all. We live in the Museum Tower in NY, on top of the Museum of Modern Art and we collectors, so we have an affection for modern art.
Both the collection and the hotel were First Class and most impressive. I would almost say that the hotel alone makes it 'worth the trip'. Five Stars.
