“Great Location and Friendly staff”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

We were a bit worried after reading some not so good reviews but 12 of us stayed here for a bachelor party and had no issues. While the rooms and beds were not extraordinary, we didn't have any issues. The staff was friendly, the rooms were decent, and we had a great time.

The hotel was very clean and in a great location, however we thought the room was overpriced for the noise level. Between the elevator, ice maker and people shouting in the hallway it was difficult to get a good night's sleep. Not sure if we will be back.

The location of the Galt House is superb. Close to Fourth Street Live and several nice restaurants. The room was very clean, and comfortable. Nice linens and the room updated and modern (maintenance wise). We had one minor problem with the room and it was quickly resolved to our satisfaction with complete professionalism. The Galt House is definitely our hotel of choice for Louisville weekends!!!

I have stayed here numerous times for work and once with my wife to enjoy the city and food.
A great place to stay whether in Louisville for business or fun. A 4 star hotel for a 3 star price.
I would recommend taking the sky-walk to 4th street if you go.
Location is great!

I returned to the Galt House after 8 years and found everything excellent in the traditional sense. The hotel is always keeping up with the times, being subtly updated. Comfort and spaciousness make it an excellent place for a conference. Rooms and restaurants are first class. Great views from the hotel on the riverfront and city!

I enjoyed my extended stay at the Galt House. The hotel is very comfortable and the location is great. Check-in was a bit hectic even late at night. Room service was very prompt and good. Next time in Louisville I will stay at the Galt House.

stayed for 5 nights...the hotel seemed to be full. We had a standard room but with a great view of the Ohio river. All of the staff we encountered were friendly....from the waitresses in the restaurant to the bartenders in the bar...the hotel has two seperate buildings joined by a sky bridge over the street. The sky bridge is a bar and snack food area...the hotel is right by the waterfront and down the street from an area with plenty of bars and restaurants.
