Landmark hotel in great location but...the Galt house in downtown Louisville and I understand that it's a historic hotel but it's in need of serious renovation of the hotel rooms. I felt like I was staying in someone's old aunts house ... Creaky, not quite clean and old. Towels were not fresh. What hotel doesn't use bleach to cleanse used hotel towels? None of the towels smelled sanitized or fresh.

The hotel lobby was pretty.

I stayed here to break up a long drive on a family trip so a restful sleep was a must. At first I was worried because the hotel seemed busy and very large but when we talked to the frost desk person we told them we wanted a quiet night's sleep. They found a room for us to specifically avoid the noise from a nearby concert. The room was very comfortable, clean and well appointed. The linens and bed were cozy and clean. We also ate at their casual dining restaurant and although it didn't look like much, the food was great. We really enjoyed our stay there and look forward to going again.

Stayed at Galt House while at the Fandomfest Convention. Got a great convention rate, and the hotel is very convenient to the convention center and other attractions. You can either walk or take the trolley (which is free) to some of them along two routes. The food and drink in the hotel is a little pricey to me, but then the atmosphere is unique. Lots of places to eat in the area as well. The rooms are spacious and clean. Great views from the Revue tower. Parking garage is huge and only one elevator to it. Pack light or use valet parking.

Room Tip: The rooms on the west side of the Revue side of the hotel has some great views of the river and suns...

Nice place to stay. Great rooms, comfortable beds, beautiful view of the Ohio River and extremely helpful staff. I stayed here at a conference and at first was placed in a centrally located room by the bar and conference room. It was loud and the staff moved me to a beautiful suite.

There is no place quite like the Galt House! Although the rooms are on the pricey side; The Galt House is something everyone should have the pleasure of experiencing at least once. The lobby, rooms, shops, restaurants, etc., are magnificient. The amount of wood work is amazing and the historical value alone is worth visiting. The Galt House is in a great location, within easy walking distance to major attractions, including The Belle of Louisville and The Ole' Spaghetti Factory.

Our room on the Suites side of Galt House was spacious and comfortable. The hotel is great for conferences or family retreats. A little pricey but the rooms are much larger than a typical hotel room. Very clean.
