This old historical hotel is a must see located in the epicenter of downtown Louisville. With great views of the waterfront, you can find yourself here loathing in the culture of old Louisville at it's best. Very prime location to see the rest of downtown Louisville, and there are lots of great restaurants in the area as well.

Stayed here in July to see Coldplay. Absolutely sparking clean and direct access to the KFC Yum arena.

We haven't stayed here so can't comment on the rooms. We have been to a few events here, though, and the common areas, of which there are a lot, are nice. Bathrooms in common areas tend to get dirty and run out of supplies if a major event is going on. Staff are friendly and helpful. It's downtown, so lots of restaurants nearby.


The spa here was ok. A little overpriced for a manicure. The fitness center on the top floor had a beautiful vista of the bridges spanning the Ohio River.


I stayed one night here while in town for a show. I read many reviews of this hotel and was nervous because some were pretty negative. I bid on Priceline and got a phenomenal rate. Upon checking in (at 12:30 instead of 3 PM) I was upgraded to a suite. The room was very spacious for the two of us. I looked everything over very closely as some of the negative reviews mentioned how dirty it was and I found everything was clean and neat. The staff was very pleasant and as we walked around to check things out, we were asked if we needed any assistance finding anything. We especially liked how close we were staying to all of the attractions were were going to visit and everything was in walking distance. Many guests have commented about outdated decor as well but nothing stood out to me. I would absolutely stay here again and highly recommend it to friends.

This is a really neat hotel but I'm not overly impressed with it. I think the furnishings are outdated. Revue restaurant here is phenomenal!

First to Review

I stayed in room 484 in the Suite Tower. I was a spacious suite with a large living space, desk, TV armoir, two very large closets, bar and a two seated dining table. In the hall connecting the living and bedroom space, there is a make-up counter and the bathroom. The bedroom has a decent sized closed, TV armoir, two queen beds and a nightstand.
With hotels replacing their regular beds with those types of beds you do not want to leave in the morning, I expected this bed to be more comfortable but Galt house has not yet jumped on the bed-revamping bandwagon. The decor is dated but not uncomfortable.
This hotel is so large and there are two towers split by Fourth street. Some of the restaurants you may wish to visit could be in the tower opposite from where your room is and there is not good signage. Give yourself a little time to get to restaurants in case you get lost.
The location is convenient, especially if you plan to go to Fourth Street Live area.
