The proximity to everything is what makes this hotel great...along with the walkway that connects it to the convention center (you can almost make it to 4th street) which is great when its cold/raining. The rooms are older and not as polished as expected, but the shower had great pressure and the bed and pillows were wonderful. At the end...

Every thing was great. Enjoyed my stay. I will be back October 18th for our Grand Lodge session. I have stayed at the Galt House since 1984, with O.E.S. and Grand Lodge of Kentucky. The only thing that I don't like is the high cost of food at the restaurant, but everything else has been great. I would recommend the...

Great stay, could have been better without the heavy cigar smell in our room. I don't know who has the responsibility of this but it would have made the stay much better. Still an awesome trip and stay.

I was a little skeptical of the hotel after reading a few reviews. My three day stay was great, except that the elevators broke down a few times, but people were there to assist you up-and-down on each floor. Every worker was very friendly and courteous. Check in was very quick. The hotel is older but has a good vibe...

Hated the hotel and we would not stay their again. We were there for my Grand Daughter's wedding (at the Fraizier Museum) and due to the elevator issue, we were late and missed half of the wedding. No happy with this experience.

Elevators were out all four days of my stay. Staff was friendly, but very short staffed. "River view" = Partial view if you stand at the right angle, rooms are clean, but need updating, still stuck in 70s. Satellite blinks out every 15 seconds. No refrigerator in room, ice machine out on floor two days. Outside and website look like...

We enjoyed our stay at The Galt House. It's a bustling, busy hotel that holds lots of conferences and other events. There were at least four wedding parties there the weekend we stayed. Don't stay here if you're looking for quiet and out of the way. If you like to be where things are happened by, though, check this one...

The Galt House is always a good value. The location is great. It is close to everything, and you can walk to most places. While the hotel is older, and has a little bit of a "Shining" vibe, that is just part of the charm. Also, stop by the little bar in the atrium. It is cool.
