Galt House Hotel
Ranked #30 of 102 Hotels in Louisville
Reviewed 17 July 2014 via mobile

Located on Ohio river; most people I knew staying at the convention had a nice room with a view.

The suites were very nice; I had a base room in rivue tower and it was nice.

Parking garage is very low clearance. There is another garage slightly taller; our f-150 would not fit in first garage.

Rooms appeared clean. Elevators worked even at full capacity.

Food we had through hotel was good.

Walking distance to all sorts of fun on 4th street.

Give the galt house a try!

Stayed: July 2014

We stayed in the suite tower on the 6th floor. Room was very nice but you could hear the interstate traffic noise so I recommend staying higher up if that would bother you. Beautiful river and pool view. Room was clean and service was very good.

First of all, on the website it says that you have to pay for wi-fi but that is false, there is free wi-fi for hotel guests. There are 6 restaurants in the hotel and there is a skywalk going through most of Downtown Louisville!!!!!

The hotel appears to be clean and well kept, however, we had roached crawling the wall of our room, and also found them in the extra blanket in the closet. The room service food was terrible, the breakfast they delivered included an orange slice, jus for garnish, but it was moldy. I left the hotel feeling dirty and was worried I would find bugs in my bag when unpacking.

I lived in Louisville when I was in college, so already knew this hotel had a great reputation and was very nice. So when we went back to Louisville to be "tourists again" for a long weekend this past fall, we knew we wanted to stay downtown near all the action, so the Galt House was our top choice.
We had four adults, and booked our room through Priceline with 2 queen sized beds. We were thrilled that upon check-in, we ended up getting a suite, not just a basic room!
Our suite had a separate living room with tv and fridge/microwave, with the bedroom separated by two doors (bathroom w/ separate vanity area was in the middle of the bedroom and living room). With the four of us, it allowed the early risers to move in to the other room to get ready, or watch tv without disturbing the others.

Also, the location was great! It's within walking distance of 4th Street Live with restaurants and entertainment, and also close enough to the Louisville Slugger museum and other activities nearby so that we didn't have to worry about moving our car all around. The University of Louisville's basketball (Yum! Center) is right around the corner as well.
I believe the couch in the living room area also was a sleeper sofa, so technically, the room could have accommodated up to two more guests! Very spacious.

The only cons would be that breakfast was not included so we had to go down the street to Starbucks or a café nearby or they do offer room service... and you had to pay to park (but it's in downtown, so that's standard.) Also, there was a half-marathon race the last morning we were there, so we could hear the loud music they were playing for the runners from our room, but it was a loud/professional sound system, so to complain about the noise might not be totally fair. Normal city noises weren't a problem.

They were decorating for Christmas when we were there so we got to see some of the beautiful decorations and lights that the hotel is known for. Everything was great and we'd stay again!

Room Tip: We were higher up on the "check-in" side of the hotel (there are two buildings separated b...

Everyone was friendly and helpful. The rooms were spacious. Hotel is great for conventions. Convenient for walking to many downtown attractions. Many places for gathering of a few friends or large groups. The bar in the bridge between building is an aquarium. Fish swim under your drink as you watch sports on the TV's.

Room Tip: Most rooms have a view of the river. The check in building has the larger rooms for the same price.

Good location , close to many attractions, loved skywalk to Yum Center. Liked closeness to river--stairs from hotel down to river were killers. Rooms were good- had a decent view of the river. Wish rooms had microwaves and refrigerators during convention time. Would definitely stay here again trolleys made it easy to get around area.
