When booking a hotel for our stay, 21c looked interesting, but the rates were so high, I could not imagine paying that much for anything without a balcony and view of South Beach, but after dining at their restaurant, Proof on Main, we went through the lobby and large museum on the lower level. FANTASTIC, a must see for contemporary...

Here to visit the GE Factory and they put us up at this hotel. The visit to the art gallery and multiple sculptures throughout and around the hotel alone are worth the stay. Great service, amenities, beautiful bar and restaurant, not to mention proximity to cool areas of Louisville are all the norm here.

Ok, here's the rub. I noticed that I tend to give 4 and 5 stars on trip advisor, with the occasional 3 when things go awry. Now I wish I could revise my ratings to rank all my previous ones down one notch, or add a 6th star for this hotel. Upon a friend's recommendation, we booked the hotel for...

The hotel itself is very nice. The museum adds character and a unique experience. The staff were all wonderfully friendly and helpful. The room, however, perhaps because it faced the atrium and received no natural light was kind of depressing and shabby. My fiancee loved the place and the stay but I wasn't blown away. I didn't think the room...

The hotel is very different from anywhere we have stayed. We stayed on the 3rd floor but was in odd numbered room and didn't have much of a view. However the room was nice! The hotel was within walking distance to Fourth Street Live. Staff was helpful!
