“I love this hotel”
Reviewed 29 April 2012

I've stayed here several times a year for the past ten years. The staff is very attentive and accommodating. The rooms are generally very small, but that's perfect for a business traveler. The bar is outstanding. This is not your typical Hilton chain hotel. The lobby is fully renovated and is beautiful. Free round trip shuttle to the airport and walking distance to many excellent affordable restaurants and also several chains.

Room Tip: The 4th Street live side of the hotel is very loud during weekend nights. However, if you are there...

A great old well restored hotel. Rooms are nice but small. We were on the executive floor and it's food and service was great. The old bar was good but getting food there ended up warm and not hot.the location for any downtown experience you would want was excellent. Would definitely stay again and recommend to others. A little pricey.

If you like staying in historic old downtown hotels, the Seelbach should definitely be on your list. Don't let the fact that is has been around for about 100 years fool you. It definitely still has the grandeur of a stately old dame but with modern touches. The bar is a must with a full selection of local bourbons. The rooms can be a bit small, typical of an older hotel, but well appointed. The service is first rate and the Oakroom restaurant should fit anyones appetite. Even the informal lunch restaurant was first rate and serves a great inexpensive hamburger. This hotel is also well located for exploring downtown Louisville which you can do withour moving your car thanks to a great trolly system. Be advised that parking is either valet or in the next door gargage but either is a bit pricy. Great experience in downtown Louisville.

Room Tip: A room away from the elevator or front of the hotel is probably preferred

My husband had a meeting at the Seelbach this week and I went with him. But I came home early because the area was simply horrible with little if anything to do. The hotel has been very nicely restored and I found the accommodations very good. But it seemed for a 4 star hotel it was not run with people who are highly trained at their jobs. While the people, for example, at the front desk were nice and polite, they were not sophisticated, highly trained employees you find at other high end hotels. And there were other examples of this throughout the hotel although I will say our experience with housekeeping was excellent. So overall, it seems the owners are trying to cut corners to run this beautiful hotel. BUT the biggest issue was that the location stinks! I seriously do not know how this hotel is going to make a go of it being located where it is. It is obvious this area has seen better days and there are abandoned buildings all around with no shopping at all. The only shopping I found was a CVS Pharmacy up the block and yet the type of people in the store made me very uncomfortable. And on the street, I felt like I was in an area where muggings might be a threat. My experience in downtown Louisville wasn't much better than my experience with downtown Detroit. The owners of this hotel may be focussing their attention on business people who are there merely to work and nothing else except when there is the occasional event that takes place. So future travelers, beware!

I love older, elegant hotels, but this one is not comfortable. I had two rooms on different floors, since I politely asked to switch rooms after the jetliner like HAVC noise kept me up the first night. Both rooms had garbage on the floor and one had a clump of hair from a previous guest. One bed was comfy and one was a giant old pillow on a bed frame. The both shower floors were slimey and sticky--gross. The lobby staff were fine, they should fire houskeeping.

Room Tip: Higher rooms have less hvac and guest noise.
