Great Location & Comfy Suites!
While the Galt House is a huge hotel with over a 1,000 rooms in two towers, we found it worked very well for our visit to Louisville. Our one bedroom suite allowed us to spread out and not be confined to a hotel room. Having a refrigerator, a TV in the bedroom and living room, plus the WIFI made it comfy. Plus it is so close to everything - the river, the shops, the museums and the restaurants. After unloading our luggage at the entrance with the bellman, we self-parked which was easy on our visit - plenty of empty spaces. Our schedule had us busy all day, but we did take time to check out the fitness center on the top floor with fantastic equipment and wonderful views of the river and city. Except for one trip to Churchill Downs when we needed to drive, we left the car parked and it was a short and fun walk to the sites, shops, and restaurants. Even with several conferences at the hotel, the only time we noticed them were when elevators were a little busier.
Room Tip: Our room was at the end of the hallway but was very quiet. The one bedroom king is roomy and nice to have space to spread out.
Another Tip: The Jeff Ruby Steakhouse is connected to the Galt House. It is a glitzy restaurant with great food.
Unique Quality: Location! Location. We liked being on the Riverfront and an easy walk to shops, restaurants, museums, etc. downtown.
Not worth the price!!!
I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. I will never stay there again. The hotel wasnt awful, but when it costs nearly $200 a nite, you expect excellent quality and you will not find that here!!
The negatives: Very slow and crowded elevators. If you stay on an upper floor it will take you about 15 mins to obtain an elevator and get to the bottom, not kidding.
Very thin walls! Heard neighbors using the restroom, talking etc. Old looking room and not friendly staff.
This hotel is ok, but Ive stayed in MUCH better for Much less. I was let down from the quality I was expecting. Overall this place is a rip off. Go somewhere else.
Unique Quality: Great view. Great location. Pedway to 4th street, KFC etc.
Gorgeous Galt House
This beautiful hotel hosts parties for the Kentucky Derby, and is advertised as the city's ONLY waterfront hotel. There are two towers - the Rivue and the Suites. I stayed on the 23rd floor - what a GORGEOUS view of the Ohio River and of the city! Free wi-fi in the rooms (I didn't utilize).
Self-parking is $12 per night, with in/out privileges if you get a sticker from the check-in desk. Very convenient to all downtown attractions - the Kentucky Center, Convention Center, Fourth Street Live!, Muhammed Ali Museum and Center, Louisville Slugger Factory and Museum, and tons more.
With the convenience to the Kentucky Center (directly through the parking garage), I won't stay anywere else when I come up for a play!
Unique Quality: So many unique things about this hotel - where to start?
> In the main lobby and in the Conservatory, there are glass enclosures with live birds - very beautiful!
> Al J's bar in the Conservatory has an aquarium-top bar. You actually sit your glass on the glass of an long aquarium with live fish - very cool!
> The parking garage connects to the Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts, so you never have to be exposed to the elements when you are off to the theatre - very convenient!
> The Galt House is connected to the LouieLink Skywalk, which brings you to Fourth Street Live!, high about the traffic and protected from the weather - very handy!
Directions: On the waterfront at 4th and Main
Historic and Conveniently Located Downtown
Our room at the Galt House Hotel was recently renovated and very clean and inviting. The front desk staff was kind and helpful. There are a number of pleasant public areas for conversation and relaxation.
I always travel with a laptop and this room offered free wi-fi connectivity, which is a much appreciated amenity.
Unique Quality: Our room had a great view of the Ohio River and I enjoyed watching the barges traveling up and down the river. In addition, there is a brand new fitness club on the top floor of the eastern tower. It offers panoramic views of the river and downtown Louisville. The per-person cost for the fitness club is $5 per day or $10 per week.
Galt House - Right on the River
The Galt House is a very large hotel located right on the Ohio River. It consists of two towers connected by a third floor walkway. Of the two towers, the East Tower is much more modern in appearance. The West Tower looks very 1970's.
In the east tower we stayed in an Executive Suite which was two separate rooms connected by a hallway with a bathroom off of it. It was a real suite, not a larger room with a partition in it.
Unique Quality: We were up in Louisville to watch Thunder over Louisville. This is the kickoff celebration to the Kentucky Derby Festival. The entire show is centered on the Second Street Bridge which is right next to the Galt House. The Hotel serves as the Air Traffic Control for the Airshow and the pilots gather there before and after their flights to have a good time. An Night, Thunder presents the Largest Fireworks show in North America and it is absolutely unbelievable. Stay at the Galt House and you have a front row seat on their pool deck.
Directions: It's on 4th Street and Main. We took a cab from the airport and it was probably a 10 minute ride.
Overlooking the River
The Galthouse is enourmous. The rooms are really nice. The location is great. Walking distance to the "Louisville Slugger", Shopping Center is just a couple of blocks away. The horse drawn carriages come by in the evenings for a nice little ride.
The best around
The Gault House is a first rate Hotel and Convention Center worthy of a 5 star rating. Mahogony furniture, marble bathrooms and huge suites.
Unique Quality: With rooftop restaraunts and many eating facilities in the two towers The Gault House offers the unique attraction of being able to eat while viewing Louisville and Indiana in a revolving dining area.
The Galt House is located in downtown Louisville. It is the only hotel in Louisville that is right on the Ohio River. The rooms here are very spacious. Some rooms have great views of the Ohio River. All the major Louisville attractions are within 15 minutes.
Unique Quality: The hotel has many meeting room, restaurant with lounge, an outdoor pool, and is right on the Ohio River
Directions: Off I-64
Louisville has all kinds of...
Louisville has all kinds of hotels, but there are a few really worth the visit. The Galt House is located downtown overlooking the Ohio River. It is one of Louisville's finest and oldest hotels. If you look down out your north-facing window, you will see an area between the hotel and the river. This is known as the Belvedere. I worked on it a while ago, irrigating it so it is nice and green for you!
Working on this.
Unique Quality: Old hotel in the city, quite nice, and a good view of the Ohio. It is not cheap.
Well, I've never actually...
Well, I've never actually stayed anywhere in this city since I live here, but there are a few 'famous' ones downtown. The Seelbach is a very high-class hotel downtown on 4th Street. I had my prom here and was very impressed with the ballroom anyway. It's also the hotel mentioned in 'The Great Gatsby,' if you've read that. The Brown is another classy place, also housing The English Grill, a 5 star restaurant, if I'm not mistaken. Lastly downtown is the Galt House, a twin-tower hotel overlooking the river. Seems to be of moderate luxury, but nice nonetheless. I've been to a couple functions here over the years.
