Holiday Inn Airport & Fair/Expo Center
Ranked #61 of 100 Hotels in Louisville
Reviewed 25 April 2013

Stayed here for two nights while attending a sporting event at UofL. Staff at front desk at check-in was exceptionally friendly and efficient. Couldn't have asked for better. Great hotel! Nice rooms. Spotless. Great beds. Had a great night's sleep. Frig/microwave in room.

Just off I-65. Great location if visiting UofL, Kentucky, Expo Center or even the Lville Airport. This is more of an industrial area so not much around right around the hotel in terms of restaurants but if you drive a mile or two, there are some choices.

I did not eat at the restaurant so cannot comment.

I would not hesitate to stay here again, especially if attending an event, etc. in this part of Louisville.

Came in for a volleyball event! Great location! Amanda and Justin at the front desk were wonderful! Amanda took care of our needs in the morning and Justin was so helpful every night! Great Staff and service! I would strongly recommend staying here for a great room with wonderful service! Only recommendation would be for more dinner choices in the restaurant!

The Staff at this hotel was wonderful! Our stay was smooth sailing all the way. We recently brought a group to this property - the group was a volleyball team and their coaches, in for a large tournament at the Expo Center. The hotel was super-close, had easy parking, was, clean and comfortable, and featured a wonderful breakfast! In particular, the staff of this hotel could not have been more accommodating or friendly! I would recommend this property highly.

The hotel and staff were wonderful. Don't eat here. Food is terrible, undercooked and usually served tepid. Got by with salads. First morning at breakfast waited 30 minutes for 2 scrambled eggs and english muffin. The eggs were cold and english muffin was barely out of the refrigerator. This was not nearly as bad as the raw slightly warm hamburger I got when I asked for well done.
Stay here recommended but eat elsewhere.

Room Tip: Hotel is great. Best tip eat anywhere but the restaurant.

The hotel looked new updated. Has an indoor pool and small exercise room. I did not use either but just wanted to see what they looked like. The lobby is very nice. The room was nice. Everything was clean. Loved the location. Close to interstate and airport. Close to Churchill downs if you are going for the derby. The hotel is behind the sheraton so be careful not to pass it up. Water pressure was great. Shower was nice. There were bath and body works products for guest in the bathroom. Would stay again. Got a great price on a bid.

We bring a very large group to Louisville each year in November, and this year moved the group to this property. While we had a bit of a rocky start with the quality of breakfast and restaurant service - management had it corrected by the time our entire group arrived and everyone in the group was very pleased with the service level. I couldn't be happier with the facility or it's management. Bravo.

This hotel is near the airport and sports stadium, but not quick walking distance to anything except Arby's. We were directed to a nearby shopping center with a Kroger's, Starbucks, and a few restaurants and services.

Our room was clean and attractive but the heater was not easy to adjust, it was either hot or off. The wall A/C had a draft but we put clothes over it and that helped. Also I was surprised when I was told that the hotel had no folding luggage rack to place a suitcase on. Most hotels do have this, and it helps me get organized.

We ate at the restaurant and the service was slow and food just ok. There was an indoor pool & small gym which we didn't use. The front desk staff was welcoming and helpful. Aside from the few details above, it is a comfortable hotel.
