Rooms are nice, location is excellent for enjoying downtown Louisville downtown. Museaums, theater, restaurants and even the ballpark (AAA) are all within walking distance. Indoor walkway is nice if the rain is pouring.

Over the past five years, I've stayed in the Galt House, in both towers, and I truy love it. This year, I stayed in the West Tower, and I could see the sunrise and sunset on the River from the room window. I can also see the River cruises.

My room is spacious enough, and it's clean overall,especially the sheets and the bathroom. The beds and pillows are very comfortable. However, the carpet is not very new, which is understandable, as this is a very popular hotel in town.

My only complaint is the noise from the air-conditioner, its on and off bothered me the first night. It's not central air-conditioned room, but it's not like window air-conditioner, either. But with my earplugs I could still sleep well. You also need to know that there is no safe in room.

Room Tip: Ask for the West Tower (Revue) if you like a river view. However, all the spacious suites are on the...

I was here on business two weeks ago and enjoyed my stay. The hotel is in a great location - close to restaurants, bars, attractions, and right on the Ohio River. The staff is very friendly and eager to help with anything I need. I stayed on a high floor with a great view of the river. Pros: comfortable beds and spacious rooms, great service, central location. Cons: decor slightly outdated, humid common areas, slow elevators, poor shower pressure. I would stay here again in the future, but it might not be my top choice (definitely a close second).

I have spent two weeks here for two different conferences and the place is nice. The rooms are clean and well maintained and the staff is very courteous. The highway noise in the suites was a problem. The windows need to be refurbished to better cut out the awful noise. The location is perfect and the views are wonderful.

We stayed for one night as a stopover and were very impressed with this hotel. Well located and in walking distance to top restaurants and KFC centre. The staff was extremely helpful and courteous and the rooms are very clean and spacious and comfortable.

Stayed here for an event in March. The front desk staff was really friendly and helpful. Our very large group had some room payment issues and they were on top of making sure it was taken care of. Our room was fine. We slept well and had a great view of the river from our room. The hotel has a lot of options for food, but they are also located in a great area in downtown Louisville so it was nice to be able to explore downtown and check out some local eateries. We only had a few small issues. 1) the fire alarm went off and it took them a while to update us. It was just a false alarm, but when your on the 24th floor and your spouse is in a wheelchair, it can lead to some anxiety. 2) when there are a few conventions going on it can be difficult to find space in the elevators, we waited numerous times for an elevator but it was so full we couldn't get on. All in all, it a great place to stay and would recommend this place to my friends.
