Great property with lots of room. Overnight parking if you are staying with them is not unreasonable. We didn't get to try any of the on site restaurants as we were there for a conference and meals were provided. Our room was very comfortable and had plenty of room. I'd definitely visit again.

The rooms were very nice. We only stayed one night so can't comment on the room service or cleaning staff. We did eat at the breakfast buffet which was not good. The food was cold the eggs runny and the service terrible. We were out and about all day at the Saint James Art Show. Came back and wanted to...

Was totally shocked when we got here. The reviews and the price I paid gave me the idea this would be just a standard business hotel. This place is awesome! The hotel is split amongst two towers which are connected with a walkway, our room was spacious and clean. When we got there a fair was being held in an...

Wonderful place to stay. Unique, classic hotel with full service amenities and helpful staff. Rooms need updating. Carpet especially. Great view of Ohio River. Easy walk to many places downtown. Skyway bar and restaurant is a great gathering place.

Of all the Ironman host hotels I have stayed at over the years, this is my least favorite. Outdated, overpriced for no breakfast, slow elevators, unfriendly staff, broken ice machine. Room service trays left in the hall way too long. Air vents vibrate, view of AC Unit is all you can see from room. Lights flicker and are inconsistent in...

We have stayed at the Galt House before , and both visits were great. We went to the 4th street live area to watch our beloved Bengals play. The hotel is a great place to stay in Louisville, located close to everything including the Ohio River and the Belle of Louisville. Thanks for a great experience!!

There certainly some good and bad things about this hotel. The main concern is the hotel's aging building and dated rooms. The hotel is far from cheap, and just based on the quality of interiors and amenities it does not worth the price. However, there are certainly some redeeming qualities. First of all, the hotel's location is superb. It is...
