I don't even know where to begin. This was the worst hotel experience. getting to our room was a complete nightmare. We checked in at the lobby and were placed in an adjoining tower on the 20th floor. We waited 30 minutes for an elevator to the room. The room was basic. No refrigerator or microwave. Since we were there...

Both the hotel rooms and the public areas are clean and well maintained. There are plenty of dining options, all of which offer good quality food. We highly recommend the...

Pros: Good location for the marathon start and finish. Housekeeping was nice. Cons: this was the host hotel for the marathon yet the hotel staff at the guest services desk had no idea where the start was, how to get to the shuttle bus for the expo and was actually rude about it. Our room was clean but the two...

Room was dated and the mattress was worse than a Motel 6! Didn't use any of the other features of the Hotel but was very disappointed with the rooms. Probably won't ever stay here again. The only good feature was that it wa within walking distance of the Yum center.

Coming off the interstate, it is a bit tricky to get to the entrance. I was very happy to have others in the car to help navigate to the entrance. I was attending a large conference and there were other large groups also staying in the hotel. They handled everything well. Our hotel room was lovely with great river views....

Huge room with great view of the river from the 18th floor. Very clean and nice looking hotel, outstanding staff minus the lazy concierge man outside the hotel. We loved the bourbon bar on the 2nd floor, was a nice nightcap.

To experience Thunder over Louisville, the Galt House is the perfect place to stay. Food, Drinks and hospitality under one roof. We had front row seats to Thunder from the pool deck. It was an enjoyable weekend.

Galt House is not a 5 star Hotel, but it does not pretend to be. The staff is nice, the location is central, the water is hot and the rooms are adequate. Its hard to my fault, but you may ask yourself "What the hell you are doing there anyway", as I did.

Parking was convenient and free. The location is perfect. The room could use some work. Peeling paint on the windows, with paint chips loose. Drywall tape on the ceiling coming down.

I did a little research for you. The concert is in Freedom Hall at the KY State Fair Grounds. Definitely not within walking distance of the Galt House. That being said, the Galt House can arrange transportation for you. I think the best bet is to give them a call and see what the can do for you. Sand Dollar Limo is the service Galt House typically uses, and can also pick you up at the airport. There is a small fee for this.

Actually those rooms have a waiting list and they are pricey. I’m not permitted to include a link. Google the Galt House. That top right of page click Louisville then on the left side of the page click view package under Thunder over Louisville. In the paragraph “View Rooms” there’s a link for getting on the wait list.

You will see people dressed all across the board at the show. But we recommend Business casual.
