Loved the Seelbach!!! Friendly staff, very cool decor, my room and bathroom were spotless! Bar was great, bartender "Cindy" was very friendly and hospitable! I will definately stay at the Seelbach again!

The Seelbach is a beautiful hotel in a great location. Service was above par, with very attentive and accommodating staff. I felt very well taken care of and will definitely stay again. I plan to recommend the Seelbach to friends and family.

We were at this hotel for work and for pleasure and it was terrific. the hotel is beautiful and the location is perfect. Room is comfortable and food at the hotel was good. the Rathskeller in the lower level of the hotel is especially amazing and just cool to check out. The room service was excellent. only annoying issues we had were with the tv cable and the water temperature in the shower. hotel is right next to 4th street live, lots of stuff going on in the area.

Ohhhhh, if only those walls could talk! Take a step back in time and imagine you are in the glamorous era of flappers, zoot-suits, and prohibition! This is the hotel mentioned in the book "The Great Gatsby". I was overwhelmed when I walked into The Seelbach Hilton for the first time. The Seelbach brothers spared no expense in this fabulous downtown Louisville hotel, built in 1905 to reflect all the glamour of that era.....gorgeous crystal chandeliers, winding staircases, elaborate woodwork and eye-catching architectural details. Every common area is so glamorous and detailed it's hard to drink it all in. Even the elevators are the original small wood encased boxes compared to newer hotels, but lends to the overall flavor of a by-gone era. Presidents, dignitaries and the infamous (gangsters!) have all been guests here giving the guest rooms, dining areas and event areas even more mystique. The Rathskeller Room in the basement has been kept in the same dark, lowly lit vast event hall as when it was a 'speakeasy', including the side entrance door with a 'peeking window'. Awesome leather and painted designs on the ceiling, copper-topped bar, and pelican-carved columns reaching to the arched cathedral sectioned ceiling. My business colleague and I ate in the Oak Room....fantastic food, extensive wine list, and unmatched service. Otto's breakfast bar has everything from healthy fare to the heartier, made to order bar, and a la carte menu. My favorite was the Old Seelbach Bar with its 44 brands of bourbon (yes, I sampled!), and a special Kentucky blend beer that my colleague agreed was the best beer she's ever had....and great angus burger! This Bar is on the Urban Bourbon Trail of the 50 best bars in the U.S. I can't say enough about the service from the front desk staff to the food servers. There is a Starbucks and a gym for guests on site too. My room was tastefully appointed, clean and cozy for the frequent business traveler. We walked thru downtown to the river front and could see Indiana, which is a stones-throw across the bridge, cool! Check out the beautiful hotel photos on their website.....I wish I had had more time....I could live there!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view and away from the elevators.

The Hotel is beautiful, in a great location, and the staff is extremely great/accommodating. The items severed at the morning brunches were amazing. However, the price is just ridiculous even for the Kentucky Derby event.

Stayed here for the Kentucky Derby week. The common area & service was exceptional. The location was also great-downtown right off the 4th Street Live area. The Oak Bar was really lively & a lot of fun. The Oak Room restaurant was also very good. We had a Jr. Suite on the 2nd floor. To say the rooms are dated & obsolete is an understatement though. The bathroom was so small that it was the size of a small NYC apartment bathroom--single sink, about 12" of counter space, no cabinets or shelves. Dated bath tub & low end plumbing fixtures. The sitting area had no tv(I've never had a suite w/o a tv in the sitting area). Very low end furniture. The bed was comfortable & the bedding/pillows were top of the line. Also, heard banging a lot at night while trying to sleep--sounded like pipes, but the mgt. said it was a service elevator. After we complained, it got better on subsequent nights, but still pretty bad. For the price we paid, definitely not worth it.

Room Tip: 2nd floor rooms have high ceilings & stay as far away from 4th St. as possible to minimize noise...

Wonderful staff, very helpful at all times of the day or night! I was at a conference at the hotel and all of the food was very very good, from the buffet breakfast to the sit down banquet. I was a bit disappointed that there were not better views out the hotel windows, but the hotel is very old and historic and the downtown built up around it! Great location, right next to 4th street live, right down from the river and all the museums! The room were as expected, a bit smaller than usual, unless you have spent time at older historic hotels! Much great history here and the staff are well-versed and happy to let you know about all the history!

Room Tip: Ask for one of the best views (although not many!) and for a corner room or one of the larger rooms...
