Staying at the Galt House is always a pleasure. The staff is terrific, the suite rooms are perfect! I love the roominess and the convenience of the amenities. The staff is always knowledgeable, helpful, and efficient. The Kentucky Center for the Arts is a quick walk through the parking garage from the hotel making this the perfect place to stay...

We are always impressed with the quality of the service and accommodations at the Galt House. The hotel is very well kept, and the staff is friendly, helpful, and professional. Both the hotel rooms and the public areas are clean and well maintained. There are plenty of dining options, all of which offer good quality food. We highly recommend the...

Downtown and close to many amenities. Easy to get to from the airport. Lots of restaurant options in the hotel. The staff was great and helpful. The rooms are a bit dated but were comfortable. Good option for business or families.

While not brand new, the accommodations are very nice. They are spacious and generously furnished. The bar on the second level is a very nice open area to meet others, grab a drink and some snacks. We would love to stay there every visit, but the cost varies greatly dependent upon what is going on in Louisville. While parking is...

My first stay at such a huge hotel. Its literally two buildings with a road that runs in between the two. Parking is free with your stay which is really nice although the parking garage was very confusing. Its like the first turn off the interstate and we were not sure if we were even in the hotel lot.

This hotel was well located for visiting everything downtown from the waterfront to the Louisville Slugger Factory. We walked everywhere. The staff was courteous and friendly and the bartender at Jockey Silks really knew his bourbon! I would advise anyone to stay here (but probably not during Derby week)

I love staying at the Galt House. I was just here for a convention, and my trip went very well, with the exception of a couple staff members who were just a tiny bit less than cordial. I chalk that up to having over 1,000 people in your establishment for 3 days, non-stop. Still, a great stay!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Galt House Hotel. We just needed a place to sleep before and after our excursion on the Bourbon Trail. Galt House exceeded our expectations. We spent both evenings in the Al J's skybar, what a great spot to grab a drink. The rooms were nice and comfortable. We will be returning.

For a hotel that seemed to have a grand Louisville reputation, it fell a little flat. It was certainly located in the center of things and has a lot of potential, but I think management needs to invest in an update quickly, lest the hotels former grandeur just becomes mocking echo. On the other hand the conference center was quite...
