Positive Reviews

Old world elegance, modern comforts

This iconic Louisville hotel is an established landmark in the area. Guests love the historic ambiance that perfectly captures a bygone era, and the hotel isn't without modern comforts like luxury bedding and free Wi-Fi.

Good food and drinks

The on-site restaurants offer plenty of variety for even the pickiest eater. Enjoy delicious meals prepared by the hotel's executive chef, and get to know local Louisville cuisine. Drinks at the bar are impressive too, so don't leave without sampling a special Kentucky bourbon or two.

Impeccable staff

Service and hospitality are provided in excess at this hotel. You'll love the warm, welcoming and laid-back atmosphere. From the moment you check in to the moment you leave, you can expect top-notch service.

Negative Reviews

Some areas need updates

Even with the purposeful nod to days gone by, guests say the hotel could still use ongoing renovations. Some parts of the building are in better condition than others, including guest rooms that show signs of wear and tear.

The elevators are slow

Past guests noted that the elevator speed is painfully slow. Busy times include mornings and evenings, and you should be prepared to wait awhile before getting on an elevator that isn't crowded.

Complicated bathroom layout

Some guests feel that the bathroom layout is somewhat inconvenient, particularly the toilet placement. Since the hotel is an older building, you might notice that the architecture is somewhat dated. While not a major issue, it can be an inconvenience.
