“This Place is FABULOUS!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2006

We had an absolutely wonderful stay at the 21c Museum Hotel during the Labor Day 2006 weekend. I was initially cautious about booking this property because I am leary of trendy properties which are high on attitude and low on service but after reading comments posted on tripadvisor.com decided to give it a try. We were totally delighted with our decision. All the staff at 21c are completely warm, helpful and enthuiastic about this new addition to Louisville. They helped in any way they could to make our stay special and to help orient us in this very unique city.
The art collection is fascinating. Definitely not what we expected to find, it was edgy, well curated and represented artists from around the world working in a variety of mediums. Our room was large and comfortable and had the feel of an urban loft style apartment: wonderful bedding, high-defnition flat screen TV, high-tech beverage maker, great bathrobes, and complimentary wi-fi.
Proof on Main, the restaurant in this property is not to be missed.
We feel that we had one of our top 10 meals ever there. The service was great, formal but totally unpretentious. Just make sure to book this in advance as it is extremely popular.
In addition to my obvious rave review of this hotel I shouldmention that we found Louisville to be an extremely interesting city which seem to be on the verge of a major renaissance. We had a great time there and willl definitely go back.
