“Consistently Amazing!!!”
Reviewed September 29, 2009

My husband and I regularly stay at 21c Museum Hotel. In fact, we would never consider staying anywhere in Louisville! The staff there is amazing and we have NEVER been dissappointed in a stay there. We've also eaten at the restaurant and used their spa services with equal satisfaction. I would HIGHLY recommend a stay there to anyone, anytime and regularly tell others about it!!!!

Booked this place when some friends and I were going to see a show at the Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts (which is soooo nicely situated within walking distance) and was incredibly delighted. From the moment we left our car with the valet, to the second we left, we felt total pampered. The guest service was excellent, including the desk helping us find a liquor store within walking distance. Had a great time at the bar too. Honestly, we want to plan a trip to Louisville JUST to stay at this place.

I've recommended this hotel to more people than any other....a truly unique experience. We enjoyed touring the facility in our spare time and "playing" with the exhibits like the raining letters in the elevator lobby. The lobby, rooms, architecture and artwork are engaging and help to make your stay more enjoyable. Don't forget to try out the bar/restaurant in the lobby.

I loved 21c! As an art lover who is usually stuck in nondescript chain hotels, this was a breath, no, a gust, of fresh air. From the lobby/museum entry to the products in the bathroom and the robes in the closet, this is a class act, and a unique one at that. Highly recommended! Oh, and I must say the staff are fantastic and know the local hot spots. The adjoining restaurant was tasty, too.

First one has to talk about the restaurant - "Proof on Main" - it is amazing, easily some of the best food you will find anywhere. I have been many times and never been disappointed.

The rooms are Europena in their feel and many small (and large) touches have made being in the room a great experience. Quiet air conditioning, so rare in hotesl, is one of these features.

The staff is great, very personal and fun to be around.

This is a great experience and a wonderful place to stay.

In January of 2009, my family and a friend traveled to Louisville for basketball and walked by the 21c Hotel. We were very interested in the bustling bar and restaurant along with the chandelier hanging streetside. Upon our return to Louisville for NCAA baseball this spring, I made a reservation at the hotel. Upon our arrival, the door was opened for us and check-in was a breeze. A very informative gentleman explained the concept of the hotel, along with some facts on the history of the building, while walking us to our room. The room was spacious, very clean, and stocked with great toiletries. We inquired about the limo that was parked outside and covered with red marbles. We were allowed to use the limo for a nominal charge and rode down to another hotel to pickup friends. The limo driver was so gracious that he returned to the baseball game and picked up everyone!!! Although we did have an appetizer and beverage in the bar where the bartender explained more information than we needed in regard to bourbon, we didn't make it to Proof. Our experience was great--a lively atmosphere, gracious hosts, and art as entertainment. We will definitely stay at 21c the next time we are in Louisville.
