Beautiful facility. Looking forward to coming back again soon. The views of the river are beautiful, especially at night. Loved the RIVUE restaurant. Food was exceptional and the revolving floor really showed off the beauty of Louisville.

When we pulled up the outside was impressive decorated for Christmas it looked so nice! We found the inside dated, especially the rooms. The Hotel is HUGE and we found it confusing to get to and from our room located in "the other" tower and then to and from restaurants, gym in and out. The deli was a lost opportunity...

My husband and I visited during the first weekend of the Christmas event. It was a very blustery, cold day. We appreciated that we didn't have to step outside during our stay, using the skywalks, and eating at the restaurants within the hotel.

I called a few days in advance to let the hotel know that I had to cancel my trip and to charge my roommate's credit card instead. The woman I spoke to assured me it would be taken care of ~ yet I was billed anyway. I would not recommend this hotel to others based on that service.

Great Hotel! Great team of staff members. Super cool Christmas decorations and people walking around singing Christmas songs. Lounge area is great! Rooms were amazing. I would come back again and just might. Its central to everything downtown.

My wife and I stayed here for the Ironman Louisville race - it is exemplary. The rooms are modern and spacious and they even smell refreshing (I hate that stale, moldy smell you get in some places). The hotel is convenient to the river and local shopping. If I do this race again I will definitely stay here.

Centrally located; excellent service. Very comfortable lounge and facilities. I would recommend this hotel if you want to stay in the heart of downtown. There are numerous restaurants nearby; it's immediately off the interstate and entertainment is just around the corner.

The Galt House is a humungous hotel. Everything was fine, but it's somewhat old and in need of updating. Rivue, the upscale restaurant, was good. Cafe Magnolia, the family restaurant, was subpar. When we checked in, our room had not been cleaned. After that, housekeeping was excellent.

Nice old-fashioned Southern hotel with a solid staff, gorgeous river views, lots of dining options, and a great central location. On this trip it was one of the options for my event at the nearby convention center, so the rate was even good. And if you don't like the weather, there's a covered walkway between the hotel and the venue.

Great hotel to stay at if you're needing easy access to Kentucky International Conference Center. However the hotel seemed to be extremely busy and even with 4 accessible elevators, it still was quite a wait when in a hurry to be at another location either within the hotel or down the street. Otherwise, very friendly knowledgeable staff and clean atmosphere.
