This hotel is in the heart of Louisville and filled with charm and history. The rooms and bathrooms are on the small side, but very accurate for the time period of 1905. When I return to Louisville, I will be staying at this gem.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

You know you can expect a great stay from the moment the door opens. You can see the intricate detail of the old world craftsmanship from the moment you step inside. The building takes you back in time to the Gatsby era. The service provides you with a taste of how the wealthy lived in that time. Once you are...

I have always loved this hotel. I. Additional. To the ambience and great location the staff is so friendly.

This hotel has great history and some nice antiquated/restored features. It is located centrally and is walking distance to good bars, restaurants, and night life. It is a nice hotel, but definitely rates no higher than 3 stars. Paint is peeling and the upkeep leaves a bit to be desired. Price for room is right for what you get.

Two calls to security about a barking dog and the dog continued to bark. Apparently they called the owners but the dog barked for two more hours. No sleep. The next morning, I left my room as the people with the dog walked by. The dog barked and jumped at me. Thankfully he was on a leash, but it terrified...

Yes. This is a beautiful hotel, but the front desk staff is rude and unhelpful. I've stayed here multiple times and always been happy, but today was just too much. I won't stay here again. The rooms are small and hot water is sporadic, but I don't mind that. It is just hard to justify spending this much money to...

The service and the hotel were excellent. My only complaint is the price. The breakfast buffet and in room dining were not worth what we paid for them. The bar service and quality of drinks was excellent.
