    The glass elevators are fun - they shoot up really fast

    Probably one o the fanciest hotels in Louisville.Nice location and we've got 50% off so the price was nice as well. Staff and everyone else were friendly so the only bad thing was loud air conditioner
  • Wendy M.
    Executive suite is very nice. Request a room around the 10th floor for best views. The room has an enormous walk in shower and beds are very comfortable.

    It has a nice location on the river with bars and restaurants in the hotel. Short walk to downtown places and events

    Good bourbon selection at the bar. Speaking of the bar you can watch native species of fish swim around right under you drink. Delightfully tacky!

    The aged steak was the most tastiest made perfect to order hunk of meat I have ever eaten. You must stop and try on the 25th floor the RIVUE Tower.

    Had to wait for an hour just for maintenance to arrive so they could fix a broken lock after I got locked out of my room for a second time.

    Most. Uncomfortable. Sheets. Ever. Yes--that's a thing. Never experienced sheets so stiff. Almost bizarre.

    Sweet views of the river, parking garage is a real mess. Rooms are dated but rest of hotel is entertaining, spread out and unique in a way chain hotels cannot duplicate.

    When you reserve & confirm that you booked a Suite with a king bed, beware, they'll tell you it's only a "suggestion" & give you a Suite with a double queen bed, if you're lucky :(

    Try not to stay in the Rivue Tower. Walls are paper thin and lots of freeway noise. Bourbon bar is awesome!

    If you value your hard-earned dollars, don't stay at this hotel. They try their darnedest to take your $$ away. Everything is an extra charge, including wi-fi, gym and even parking during check-in.

    "The original Galt House opened in 1835. Its two towers now overlook the Ohio River. Several U.S. presidents - Carter, Reagan and Clinton, to name three - have been guests."

    Don't go here during Nov-Jan expecting to have a drink at one of the "largest bourbon bars in the country". It's closed down and turned into a damn gingerbread house. They won't tell you this though..

    Park in either parking structure off 4th St. 3rd level gives you access to hotel. Can be frustrating.

    We were promised a crib for our 3 month old. Instead, we got a playpen with a full size flat sheet. I am very disappointed. The suite is lovely though.
