Great Experience, especially as I was traveling alone and felt very safe and well taken care of. Walking around the neighborhood was interesting. I particularly appreciated the friendly and helpful staff. My only disappointment was with the restaurant - Proof - which didn't live up to the hype.

We have returned often. The art is fantastic-- in the museum, hallways, public bathrooms, elevators, and my room. The location is close to everything downtown. We also love the bathroom products---we even buy the big bottles!!!

Ask for an inside room. Rooms overlooking Main are just too noisy. You can here all the commotion on Main Street and on the near by highway. The price of the room was very expensive to not get a good nights sleep

Stayed at 21c for 2 nights. Great room and service; fast internet. Visit Proof restaurant in the hotel if you have a chance; good food and great coffee. The bar has a wide selection of bourbons. Museum is also a must see as well as the interactive art. Make sure to visit the restrooms on the main floor - very...

We did not know what to expect but it was an excellent hotel that was exactly where we needed to be. Room was clean and comfortable. The bathroom was beyond expectations and we loved it. The museum was a nice change from most hotels. All in all we will be back.

We had a drink and checked out the art. The Bourbon sour looked amazing if you like bourbon. Lots of unique artwork. Make sure you visit the restroom too. The artwork is on the edgy side. The sculpture made of acrylic nails was one of my favorites.

If you love contemporary art, fine food and top notch service, you must visit 21C in Louisville. The rooms were tasteful and comfortable, the staff friendly and well-informed, and we loved dining at Proof. It's an unexpected oasis of comfort and culture.
