Galt House is not a 5 star Hotel, but it does not pretend to be. The staff is nice, the location is central, the water is hot and the rooms are adequate. Its hard to my fault, but you may ask yourself "What the hell you are doing there anyway", as I did.

We are always impressed with the quality of the service and accommodations at the Galt House. The hotel is very well kept, and the staff is friendly, helpful, and professional. Both the hotel rooms and the public areas are clean and well maintained. There are plenty of dining options, all of which offer good quality food. We highly recommend the...

Parking was convenient and free. The location is perfect. The room could use some work. Peeling paint on the windows, with paint chips loose. Drywall tape on the ceiling coming down. You hear every flush from every room around you and you can definitely hear all the screaming kids! The elevator wait was so long (one of the four was...

I booked this hotel from England for the thunder over Louisville paying extra money which obviously had been increased from the normal rate because of the show. I had ordered a room with a view of air show and fireworks, what I got was a partial view. Why they didn't say on booking that it is a partial view who...

At Christmas my wife and I traveled to the historic Gault House in Louisville, KY. We found an atmosphere that was very enjoyable and casual. The room was good, and the food at the restaurant atop the hotel was first class and to us, nearly 5 star. Service, both at hotel and food outlets were excellent, but notably the revolving...

Staff was nice enough but nobody really seemed to care but the doorman about my stay. Smells like sewage and Al J's bar was awful! Won't be staying here again. Not really one good thing to say. Bad bed bad water pressure. Just all around bad.

Had a great stay, and loved the location of this hotel. The room was OK but seemed in need of some updates which is why I didn't give 5 stars. The staff was really helpful, and the lobbies were lovely. I enjoyed our view of the river and especially liked the aquarium bar. Get the Cinnful martini! Sooo good. We...

Stayed one night in the Rivue Tower. Lots of walking too and from food, room, check in and entrance. Garage parking did not fit our large vehicle and we had to walk from a street level, unmanaged lot. Desk was friendly. Good stay overall.

The room I stayed in needed some work. Carpet, drapes, wallpaper all looked old. Room had an old smell to it. You can't beat the location, which is good because I had to go sit at a nearby Starbucks for Wifi; the free wifi is unusable. Room service was a bit pricey and the food was nothing special. Negatives aside,...
