A year ago I wrote a review of the Galt House and gave it five stars. Unfortunately I had to rate it a little lower for this trip. We still love it, and we'll come back, but there were a few issues this time. First the good stuff. A corner suite high up overlooking the river is a must! It's...

My husband and I decided to jump in the car and go. No reservations anywhere. We stopped in Louisville to do a few of the sights and picked The Galt based on price alone. It was a wonderful surprise. Just days before Thanksgiving and it was already beautifully decorated for Christmas. The staff was super friendly and the rooms nicely...

Great Christmas packages to kick off the Holiday Season. Beautiful decorations and the must see KaLightascope! Very good with tour groups. The Galt House is the only river front hotel in the city. You are within just a few blocks of some wonderful museums, so get out and walk!

The Galt House is in a great location downtown. It is right on the river and provides great views. Walking distance from restaurants, the Yum Center, 4th Street, museums, and theaters. It was very festive had great decorations for Christmas.

I stayed three nights at the Galt House to attend a conference. I was offered a suite on 11th floor, which gave me an impressive feeling of a hotel de luxe visit. Several rooms, clean and with all equipment needed. Quiet and with attentive staff

Best for The Kentucky Center..very short walk. Parking plentiful $15 night. Our room had wonderful view of Ohio River. So nice bed linens and spread. Not most economical rate. 24 hour deli is great benefit. Excellent pizza too.

We visited the Galt Hotel solely for the purpose of the Christmas display. $15.95 per adult was a steep fee, but we decided to go through anyway. The only part appealing for adults with no children in tow, in my opinion, is the "KaLightscope" feature. It is really neat, but not worth the price of admission. If you did have...

Beautiful hotel, all decorated for Christmas. The shows and displays for Christmas are very nice. It was a very festive mood at the Galt House, the Ladies of Liberty show was quite good, the KaLightoscope display was also unique and beautiful. They even have dancing bellmen and a small group of carollers. While my visit was during the Christmas season,...

I stayed at the Galt House while attending a conference. I had my own room and felt so safe while there. The Galt House is in a great location that has easy access to entertainment and great food. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable and the hotel was clean.
