Very large two room suite. The bath is large with a separate dressing area, but the bath lavatory area is small, there is a lot of wasted space. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. The only issue I had was the glasses for use in the room were smudged. I would prefer plastic glasses that I knew were sanitary. Several reviewers have mentioned that the hotel is dated. Most hotels in downtown areas are dated because they have been there for years and that makes them unique. As long as the property is clean and you are not overcharged, so be it.

Great location downtown, room was clean but this property needs an update in a hurry. The only redeeming grace was the low price I got on priceline, but the old saying holds true, you get what you pay for. btw don't get anything to eat at the deli in the walkway between towers it's overpriced and not very good, plus the gal behind the counter wasn't very helpful.

The Galt House was a beautiful hotel. We enjoyed staying there. The Christmas decorations were beautiful. The shops were fun. We found several unique gifts. The room was nice and clean with a good view of the river.

Galt House is supposed to be a really nice hotel in Louisville. It was, in previous decades. Some of the little things are slipping through the cracks. The elevators were dirty. The lobbies (and elevators) were full of teenagers for some sporting thing. The room was nice but basic. The sheets were not nice. They felt like they were made of plastic or something. =( We went up to the 25th floor for a drink. We didn't stay. Too fancy, which was weird because the elevators definitely didn't say fancy, and had a poor beer list. We ended up leaving the hotel to find a drink. In the morning, tried to find a quick bite to eat, but couldn't find anything vegetarian. Meh. All in all, it was okay for the price, but we were expecting better.

Stayed here for our last night of our trip. Booked through Hotwire and had no problems with booking. No free wifi in rooms, but is free in lobby areas, no free breakfast or parking. They offer valet and self. Hotel is on the old side, elevator was a wobbly ride, rooms and landings have a funny smell to them, but fine once you’re in your room. To be honest I wasn’t really impressed with this hotel, it’s trying to be more than it really is, it was quite depressing actually. Tried to print our boarding passes off in the business centre, but it wasn’t working. Unless they revamp the place I probably wouldn’t stay again. Good location, and comfy beds though.

I read the mixed reviews but decided to take a chance based on location. The room we had was a suite in the suite tower and was on the 15 th floor. The room was large with a living room separate from sleeping room. The bathroom was huge. Overall the room was is good condition. The corners were dusty but the shower and toilet were clean. The restaurants were good, decent price and good service. Kaleidoscope Christmas was very good and worth the money and time. I would do it again. I would recommend brunch at rivue revolving restaurant. Go around 11:30am to enjoy the lunch savory items on the buffet. Bottom line is that I would stay at galt house again.
