I've stayed her before and I can say the Rivue tower rooms are not as nice as the main side. But first the elevators- hot inside. Sometimes would wait for 10 or more minutes for elevators. If you were lucky enough to get one, they...More

They is was my third stay at The Galt House, each time has been for the Kentucky Derby. The hotel continues to be very dark and dated. As the premier hotel for the Derby, you'd think they'd spruce this place up. During my stay this...More

We are coming with a large group July 2-8. I'm reading some of these reviews and I'm concerned when I read unfriendly staff, some rooms not cleaned. As one of the adult chaperones of this group I can tolerate loud noise but not unfriendly ,unhelpful staff and uncleaned rooms. Might this be corrected before our arrival? I'm hoping for a positive time while visiting Louisville. Thank you for your thoughts on my concerns.
