With in walking distance to the Slugger Museum and Fourth Street Live and numerious other restaurants. The Belle of Louisville is right behind the hotel. The hotel is clean and the staff friendly. I only have one complaint and that is the elevator system is extremely slow.

We had a suite on 3rd floor and upon first looked it seemed fine but after getting to bathroom perceptions begin to change. The sink cabinet was a disaster the finish was completely scratched up and had several white places on it. The bedroom had a balcony off it which ran the entire side of third floor giving all rooms...

The Galt House is very historic, however it seems to have fallen behind the times. The hotel was clean and well run however it could use some renovations especially for the guest rooms and bathrooms. Also the elevators were a nightmare on the day of checkout for us. We had to wait 20 minutes before being able to get on...

Friendly staff, nice location, clean hotel. But the slowest elevators ever! We waited at least 10 minutes for an elevator. When leaving in the morning, we waited 25 minutes and had to take the elevator up because they were packed. There are not enough elevators for the number of guests in the hotel.

It was what u would expect for a downtown convention hotel. Beds were comfortable, need painting, baseboards were dirty, furniture out of date. Air conditioning issues but were fixed quickly. We were in town for a family wedding it was close to venue and convenient to downtown if that is what u are there for.

Stayed four nights. Got a great deal. 40 dollar food credit, free parking and wifi, averaged less than 100 a night. You can park the car and play tourist. All the major attractions are within walking distance. No issues with the elevator, as the hotel was nowhere near capacity when we went. KFC Yum center 2 blocks away.

I booked three nights at the Galt House for my wedding on the Belle of Louisville. I am a local but wanted to be able to just walk to my venue. In a lot of ways the location is great, you are close to many of the great places downtown and of course right on the river. We stayed in...
