This hotel has a perfect location. People were nice and it was clean. The breakfast is not very extensive but this place is all about location. Parking was free. We walked to fourth street live and enjoyed the nightlife which was only about two blocks away. Within a block and a h

Our original room looked great but we pulled back the sheets and there was a big blood stain on the sheet. Went to complain and reception were super apologetic and moved us to a new room. The bed was immensely comfortable and the value was very good. This is a noisy place to sta

Going to be in Louisville, Ky. in Dec. for Xmas show at Galt House. How far is this hotel from Galt. I don't know about weather at that time of the year. Looking for nice hotel close as I can get. Bringing Special Needs daughter. Thanks.
Dear Traveler, Thanks a lot for your inquiry. We are about 4 blocks (1o min. walk from the Galt House Hotel. Weather around that time is cold and we have snow which is hard to say from now, but it is cold for sure. It is a safe walk to the hotel and you may take tax or shuttle as well as you have special need daughter. There are other hotels in downtown, but we are only Economy hotel in downtown that may fit your budget if price is concern for you!
