My experience here was great! As stated in the title, I have stayed here on more than one occasion and have yet to been disappointed! We stayed in a suite. It was clean, staff was friendly and the view was nice. It is a bit outdated but I kind of expected this as it seems to have been here a...

Had a great room. Beds comfy. Quiet everywhere. Location to restaurants, etc downtown is excellent. We did eat in one evening and had a good meal. Enjoyed the deli and atrium. Made it easy to grab a muffin as we had an early departure. We were very satisfied with our stay and recommend it to others. We would gladly stay...

We booked through Hotwire for a decent deal on the Galt House. It's an excellent location for on-foot sightseeing in downtown Louisville, and convenient for the Mint Julep tour. Also, the free Zero bus stop is just outside the front door. The little cafe in the third floor atrium is great for a coffee or a tasty $3 grilled cheese...

The room was not restocked on a daily basis and the room was average at a Luxury price. The ice machine did not work on our floor. The wait for an elevator was 10 minutes or more. We took the steps a lot. The staff was friendly. I would stay at a name brand and save yourself some money.

We expected a wonderful 1800's experience in a larger boutique-type hotel and we were quite disappointed. Maybe the hotel caters to the conventioneers and families take the back seat. Housekeeping was poor. We were so disappointed that we did not patronize their restaurants! Don't expect nothing more that average here!

Pleasant hotel though the rooms had very few electrical outlets, minimal storage, only one place to hang a towel, large grey industrial trash can and only one in the whole room. The conservatory area was great and the conference area also great

View from RIVUE was amazing both day and night. SERVICE and FOOD was best I have experienced. Rooms were clean and quite. Desk staff keep us heading in the right direction. (We tend to lose our bearings) Great trip and experience.

Dirty room, hair in the tub, old dirty towel on the balcony. My wife and I had to sleep in separate beds due to to the sink hole in the middle of the bed. At $300.00 you would think you would have a very nice room.

The Galt House is an exceptional place to stay. I have stayed there many times for our PGMS and GIE conference and have never had a bad stay. We tried Thelma's made to order pizza late one night of this stay and it was served hot and delicious. The GH staff is always courteous and helpful no matter the circumstances.

The Galt House is a great place to stay in Louisville - top notch service, rooms, food, etc. We came for a getaway weekend and took advantage of the Mint Julep Bourbon Trail tours. We had a great time - book in plenty of time, though, or you won't get a room - they stay BUSY! We will be back!

“Most rooms have two double beds. The single rooms sell out quickly because there are not many. It is a conference hotel.”
