When I booked the wrong night through a 3rd Party booking website and showed up a day early, their manager quickly refunded me the full night without any questions. Very accommodating and friendly.
Like the pool (we usually stay here because our local granddaughters like to swim) and the new decor in the lobby area and redecorated areas. Felt safe and the location was wonderful. Staff was attentive when we checked in. Our first room was not clean and the heat/air was not working correctly. When I called the front desk the next morning (I turned it off for the night), they said they would have someone look at it while we were out of the room for the day. Nothing was done. When we got back, the front desk personnel who had come on duty didn't know anything about our request or if any maintenance had been requested or done. We asked to be moved and were moved next door. That room was clean and the HVAC worked (a newer unit). We may not return because the room are not consistent.
Very little They had ants in my room. Tv remote didn't work. Toilet issues as soon as ingot to the room after the first flush. Long time to fix
The pool area was fantastic! Overall, the hotel was very clean The hotel is massive. Getting from point A to point B was not very easy. We were very far from the pool. However, It was a great hotel and I would recommend it.
I think there is a lot of potential there. It was under a major facelift. The finished parts showed promise. The pool looked like it could be a fun place to hangout. It was dirty, old and not a nice hotel. The front desk staff was ok, but the bar staff was not well trained in how to serve customers. Once the construction is complete, it might be better, but there is not a chance it will be a destination. I only stayed there since all the hotels in the area were booked. I won't stay there again unless I need to.
We had a very relaxing stay and the staff was very hospitable. We loved the pool and the big window overlooking the pond.
Nice staff and facilities. Goose droppings everywhere outside. Inside is very clean.
Convenient location Once we had our room, we were getting kids ready for swimming and someone else used their room key to open our door and were just as surprised as we were. I called the front desk...gentleman said sorry and he would take care of it. Went swimming...pool was nice, but older kids playing catch with a football across it. After they nearly hit my 2 year old, I politely asked them to not throw that way again....we ended up leaving as they carried on throwing from one end to the other...when we got to our room our keys wouldn't work....the front must have cancelled all keys when they rented out our room twice. We had to go all the way back from room 609 to have our keys reset. Around 1 am when I went to the bathroom a roach the length of my thumb was on the floor.....needless to say I didn't sleep well afterwards.
We love coming back to his hotel, it has a great indoor pool and staff and rooms are always great. Sometimes there is smoke lingering in some rooms but they try really hard to keep it clean, unfortunately this is normal in most hotels in this area.
I enjoyed my stay here, pool is always great and my kids love it, rooms are large, staff is always welcoming and assist when they can. Parking is always available and it's right off the highway, although construction still limits your access, but hopefully will be done soon. Had a few issues, but nothing major. First time I was told to leave the room while they cleaned it, which had never happened in all my stays there. Toilet was running at times overnight. Also please make better pancakes, they were terrible!!! Although I enjoy the buffet breakfast in general.
Rooms were remodeled/redecorated. Online pictures a bit deceiving in the overall quality of the hotel. Disjointed layout (rooms not all accessible from a lobby elevator). Hallways were dark and dank. Elevator sounded like it was going to break every time. Staff wasn't very professional.
I did not have time to investigate or walk around to enjoy any of the amen,
The room was affordable and staff were accommodating. The room smelled musty and let in a lot of noise from outside.
Room was clean, breakfast was good, lot of restaurants within walking distance. Overall a pleasant experience. Not really anything bad.
We got a room for one night while traveling and this little place was a hidden gem. The hotel is small, but the rooms are private and very clean and well maintained. (it looked recently renovated) One of the biggest benefits was actually the shampoo and conditioner dispensers in the shower. it was unusual, but you could actually use what you needed from each product instead of running out and using two or three little teeny tiny bottles. We had our dog with us and the hotel charges a pet fee, and there were not a lot of places to walk her around the hotel.
Proce We didn't stay because the walls of the room had holes in them , it smelled musty and unclean, and the towels were dirty.
The staff was friendly enough. Pretty much everything was dirty and very old. Next time I will pay a little more to at least have clean.
The door locked and had a dead bolt. No bedbugs seen. Walking into the hotel/dump, we should have turned around and left, but deciding that it couldn't be that bad, we continued on up to a room that was worse than hostels in third-world countries. The place smelled badly and my stuff still smells two days later. The bathroom door was broken, front, back, and top. The walls were disgusting and the lampshade was cracked badly with age. The place smelled badly and my stuff still smells two days later. Don't stay here.
nothing DO NOT STAY HERE unless you enjoy being with the unemployed, drug users and filth. I pulled up and knew right away when I saw clothes hanging over rails, kids and families living in the hotel (extended stays), drug pushing all around and smoke smelling reception. I have stayed at one of these places in another state and it was nothing like this. The Days Inn or Clarion across the freeway is safer. The reception obliged as i walked in and demanded they cancel my RSVP. If you dont care about this sort of thing, fine, but spend the extra $30 to go across the street. At least you know your car will be safe.
Didn't die. Don't think there were bedbogs. Mold on bathtub surround and broken glued panel. Bathroom vent blew smoke into my bathroom. Burn holes in bedspread. No maid service two of four nights. Left a night early due to terrible dirty conditions. Glad my wife wasn't with me. Wish there were a minus 5 rating available.
The location was good, it sets really close to I-65/Hwy 31 and is very easy to gain access to it. Hot water was good and the shower had good pressure. The door to enter our room was very hard to open, really had to put your shoulder into it, but at least someone wasn't going to sneak in. There seemed to be only a couple usable outlets and one really seemed to cause the TV bad static. All the renovation to the room was done very badly, not sure if it was even done professionally. The tub/shower was pretty bad looking and wasn't even sure if it was clean. Walls were in bad shape and cracking. We would have stayed somewhere else but at that point everything was booked.
Location - it was where I needed to be. It was cheap. Paint (?) was peeling off the bathtub. Wasn't sure of the cleanliness. Cigarette burn hole in bedspread. I'm glad my wife wasn't with me, she would have totally freaked out. There were people loitering around in the parking lot across the street very late at night. I have to come to Louisville at least once a year, won't stay here again.
Stayed the night for an event at yum center. It was very. Ice to have access to event from hotel skywalk I like a softer mattress. But it didn't really effect my slumber lol.
Location was great. Had a lot of facilities. Good restaurants. Little dated. And very huge. Felt empty.
It was within walking distance to all the major attractions. The AC units in the room were extremely loud, sounded like a percussion band coming through our room each time it turned on. Also, the walls aren't very think and can hear every word your neighbors speak.
Fish in the bar Stains on the bed and the water pressure was really low in the shower
Good location. Greatly in need of many updates. Extremely outdated property.
Our suite was very nice. Bedding and bathroom were both very clean and fresh.View was great - we could see the city and the river from our vantage point. The room had a nice bar area with refrigerator, however we had to ask for extra glasses. There was a stain on one of the chairs, a light bulb was out, and we only had one drinking glass in room. However, they replaced the light bulb promptly and brought us extra glasses when we asked.
There was an error in my reservation where a third party had booked 2 reservations for me. I was unaware of this until I arrived at the front desk. I spent an hour with the front desk and several hours on the phone with management trying to resolve the issue and they were unwilling to help me in my situation. I was shocked that they were so unwilling to even help a little with the issue. This lack of flexibility really put a bad taste in my mouth and I'll most likely not stay here the next time around.
Staff The basic rooms
The hotel was very nice and the staff even nicer. It's location and views are great. Downtown Louisville has an eclectic selection of restaurants and bars as well as different museums within easy walking distance if you choose to explore. If not, there are several bars and eating places there at the hotel. We parked the car when we got there and only had to get back in it once when we went to Churchill Downs. We will stay again if our travels take us back to Louisville. The prices for some of the casual food places was too high. $2.65 for a large coffee at the walk up Thelma's and $16 per person at the Magnolia Cafe for an ordinary breakfast buffet is a bit much.
Comfy bed Room smelled musty
It was a beautiful hotel at a great location! Loves of things for guests, the pool, gym, and if you want to eat there they had great options. It was a safe area and the view was amazing! We were close to a lot of fun downtown things and we felt comfortable leaving a car parked in the garage. My family had never been to Louisville ever and the location of the hotel was easy to find but it was a very confusing check in process for us! There was so much going on and so many people on a very small area it was very congested! Also when we booked I looked for "Free Parking" hotels and tgis one came up so I assumed parking would be free and it wasn't.
The hotel was in a great location Everytime I asked someone working there a question, they either didn't know or wouldn't help.
Room was poorly appointed for the cost. No fan in the bathrooms. Doors are lightweight and thin, as are the walls. Room size was rather small. There is a Hampton Inn nearby that offers a much better value for a lower price point. That will be our go-to spot for future trips to Louisville.
No refrigerator or microwave in room was inconvenient.
Staff is nice and does its best to be helpful Hotel is badly in need of a refresh. My room was tired, carpet had stains. Quality is really variable.
Gorgeous and historical!
Wonderful lobby bar and a beautiful old grand hotel. My new go to for Louisville Only had an issue with one server but I feel I only noticed it because the rest of the service was so fabulous
Our experience overall was great...but I don't feel it was anything over the top for the type of property that it is and rate that we paid per night. The location was good...and many of the staff members were very hospitable and kind.. James in in-house reservations was wonderful, as I called to reconfirm our reservation, note our preferences and that it was Anniversary and he blocked us accordingly. Evan and Amanda were truly welcoming at check-in. Colin our Bellman/Valet was very personable and always gave great recommendations. Shamaya in housekeeping was so very friendly and welcoming...always offering us chocolates which was a sweet touch!! There are a few items that we didn't truly enjoy during our stay... I called in and noted it was our Anniversary during our stay and honestly expected some type of acknowledgement during our time there...and there was nothing. In past stays at luxury properties they have at the least mentioned it during check-in...and then at times upgraded us or even sent a little something with a card up to the room. I felt this was a missed opportunity to WOW!!! The mattresses are definitely an item that should be replaced...as they seemed older and were quite uncomfortable. We opted to reserve a room on the Club Floor to take advantage of inclusions...which we had higher expectations for the Club Lounge. As both food offerings for both "happy hour" and breakfast were very repetitive and seemed "cheap"/low-quality. With staying at a luxury property that boasts a talented culinary team we expected higher quality and more variety.
need more updates with carpeting - or better cleaning service
Perfect atmosphere with tremendous service. Really hated to leave.
The architecture Being charged for parking
Beautiful atmosphere, excellent staff. The ac in our room was not effective and the room was very hot. There was a large group of high school students who were very loud and took over the lobby at one point. I would think that booking large groups of children would not be common place in this hotel as it appeals mainly to adults and the noise from kids works against the atmosphere.
The staff was superb. Service was impeccable. The facilities were very clean. The beds were comfortable. We enjoyed every aspect of the Brown Hotel. A hot brown for breakfast at the J. Graham's Cafe was the perfect ending to our stay. Loved it! The only thing that I did not like was the fact that we could not go into the clubhouse because we were not a member.
Our stay at the Brown Hotel was exceptional. Great location to all attractions and site seeing. The hotel was very nice, clean, and spacious. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Overall we were very pleased with our stay at the Brown. Our only dislike may not be a problem with others. The bed was too soft. We are use to a more firm mattress. Didn't sleep well and woke up with a backache. The bed was just too plush us.
It was conveniently located. The room had a very strong air freshener smell, which made me wonder what they were trying to cover up...
The staff was absolutely amazing! Pools were great as well as the rooms! Me and my kiddos will definitely be back!
We liked the location, close to everything that we did in Louisville. Nice pools indoor and outdoor. Friendly staff that gave great restaurant recommendations. A bit older, but they are doing renovations. Not many choices for hot breakfast and the breakfast room was a bit crowded later in the morning. No refrigerator in the rooms.
Location to mall It is very old, needs renovation really bad. Hallway not air conditioned. Bathroom very small.
Clean Fire alarm system wasn't checked and started beeping sound all night
There are steps in the hallways to the rooms.
Convenient near the freeway for on the way travelers. It doesn't have elevators to go to the upper level. It becomes complicated to carry luggage. We requested a room change because the one we got had a strong mildew odor.
I've stayed here many times before but feel like this was the worst yet. We typically stay here because the location is great but I may have to find something else in the future. The staff is great though. They're very friendly. My room smelled musty as soon as I walked in. I thought by turning the A/C on would help but it didn't. All weekend it was musty. The A/C in this room didn't get the room cool even though I had it on the coolest setting. The hairdryer broke, which was no big deal since they replaced It immediately. The plumbing in the shower needs to be repaired as water was coming out of a hole towards the base of the faucet. There were cracks in the tile and the toilet was so low I felt I was sitting on the ground. Their Continental breakfast had no variety. Only bagels, cereal, mini muffins, bread, biscuits and gravy and awful tasting hard boiled eggs. If you're on a gluten-free diet, beware. Oh they did have a couple pieces of fruit. I did enjoy the coffee! Hope this review helps others make a good decision.
The rate was the only really good part about this hotel. Our two rooms both had very odd, strong smells. The pools were nice but there were issues with their rules being enforced.
The room smellled very bad, my wife could not sleep during the night and could not eat breakfast the next morning. One of the worst experiences we have had traveling. I am glad it was only a nights stay.
We requested a fridge when we made the reservations, front desk told us to call ahead the day of, so we did just that. Called the day of and they said it will be in n the room. We checked in and again asked about the fridge, they didn't have it set up yet and said they would do so, well that was at 3pm, it didn't get to the rm until 11pm. I called down a few times to check and was told the maintenance man was busy and I have to wait! Tried to explain to them that I had medicine that needed to be refrigerated and that I was trying not to be a pain. Didn't matter, the front desk was very short and rude with me.
Location worked for us, close to everything we needed. Older décor in common areas and rooms. Low quality linens and toiletries
The location is great, right on fourth street. The bed was very comfy and the tv was huge. The bathroom was freezing, and the noise from the late night parties echoed from the lobby right outside the door, made it hard to sleep. Valet was expensive and the pool was alright, kind of small. No hot tub. No free wifi, no breakfast included. For the cost, I expected more.
This is a awesome hotel in a great location. Staff at the desk were exceptionally friendly and helpful. The room was decorated in a very modern style. There was a 65 inch TV in the room. The hotel also has a restaurant and bar. I ate 3 meals there and the fool was good and preparation was excellent. I would not hesitate to stay there again., Front desk workers, although eager to assist, did not have a good command of the English language. The accents were very heavy, and sometimes I had to ask them 2 or more times to repeat what they said.
location, gym, comfy bed
The noise in the hotel did not stop all night. When I checked out in the morning there was a drunk asleep in front of my door. Not worth it
The basic room appeared recently renovated and was borderline luxurious, depending on your definition of luxury. Definitely highly comfortable. High-end bathroom, bed and bedding were marvelous, the robe is a welcome touch. Stayed Fri-Sun, there was a lot going on in and around the hotel. I was pleasantly surprised at how the noises disappeared once my room door closed. The complimentary Wifi was more than sufficient for my needs without having to upgrade, and was trouble-free. Nice to see a hotel that's recognized by 2016 that a couple of USB charging ports on the nightstand might be handy; I didn't have to take my wall charger out of my bag. There's a room safe big enough for a 13" laptop (but not a 15") and the safe has a 110V outlet inside the door, nice. Huge flatscreen with great sound. Room keys are chips, not mag swipe, so you can unlock the door without taking the key out of your wallet. The elevator might leave your stomach in the lobby when you're going up ;) Parking was advertised at $13 but ended up being only $10; there's no integration with the room key though so you have to keep up with your ticket. This hotel is connected to the Louie Link enclosed walkway that runs from Galt House and KFC Yum Center at the north to Fourth St Live at the south. And the staff is great! Highly recommended. Thanks!
We loved the size of the pool and that it was indoor/outdoor. The room was clean and nicely decorated. We also enjoyed the balcony overlooking the pool. The hotel staff was very friendly. The shuttle was also very helpful. We really feel that each room should have a refrigerator and microwave. We would have also liked to have some sort of complimentary breakfast. My husband and I stay in many hotels throughout the year and this is the first one to not have any of the amenities I have stated above.
The staff was wonderful and friendly the room was great and clean they even left some body spray on the pillow bathroom was very clean we were minutes from Kentucky kingdom and we walked there and if I ever got back it is where I would stay 2 They had this beautiful pool and court yard buy I tried to relax in it and it was full of black ppl and I tried on 3 different occasions and as late as 9:30 but all the children (and there were like 40) were out of control throwing things splashing running around and the life guard doing nothing to stop them .. Later found out that there was a family reunion of some sort but as I sat in the courtyard I watched other families and guest come down and see the craziness and turn around and leave...
Overall our stay was good. The room and hotel were very clean and the beds comfortable. The location would have been great for going out (which is why we selected it) had we had the time, but didn't work this time around for us. The only downside for this hotel is the shower. My husband had a difficult time since he he is over 6 feet tall and the shower head was for people closer to 5 1/2 feet or shorter. The pressure was also barely there and quite noisy from I think trying to get the pressure.
The location is good. The room was dirty and we couldn't get them to come clean it. They said they were busy. The maid would knock very early then we asked her to come back later and she never did. The manager was very rude when we asked about the cleanliness. There wasn't enough hot water at all. It was very disappointing especially considering the price for our two dad there.
Whirpool was unbelievably dirty, ypi cpuld scrape the dirt off the tiles, water was brown n smelled horribly warer was also warm not proper hot tub temperature, swimming pool floor was filthy as well, very disappointed and dissatisfied especially for the money I paid.
That the internet was not included. The room was not cleaned till 1:30 in the afternoon. The front carpet outside the hotel was dirty. The rooms were very small.
Need to have free Internet. It's 2015
The staff was very helpful and friendly. The room was clean and comfortable. The parking garage was hard to get to.
elegant rooms and comfortable bedding great location room was a bit small but adequate and room near elevator had lots of hall noise
The staff is great. The historic nature of the hotel is impressive. Location is central and steps from restaurants and entertainment. Bed was comfortable. The room and bathroom were small. Furniture was basic hotel-grade as were the linens and towels. Shower curtain was flimsy and frayed. The room was pretty, but there was nothing luxury or high-end about it. It was a very standard grade hotel room for the price.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. We especially liked the cleanliness of the room. The bathroom was clean and there was NO mold growing around the shower. I suppose the age of the hotel showed a bit and the area around the hotel left a bit to be desired, but these things are hard to control and the cleaniness of the rooms made up for that.
Super clean room, nice staff, close to lville. Wouldnt stay here again...the window well air conditioner was so loud it was impossible to sleep. Sounded like a freight train going thru the room all night long.
They charged me again at the hotel for the room. I was assured at the desk that this was not done. When back home saw the charge on my card. Have been told it will be taken care of.
Clean,friendly staff. They gladly accepted late checkout.
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.
very clean, great service and staff, awesome location, very relaxing, only odd thhing is that the wifi connection was a little slow, no way to watch a movie but was busy with other things so didn't have time anyway
Easy to access from interstate, close to restaurants for meal. While the room was clean, it looked like there had been water damage at some point on the ceiling, that was not very appealing.
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.
Friendly staff, nice breakfast, loved the beds and bedding, quiet. The mold on the tiles in the bathtub.
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.
Early breakfast and cleanliness. none
There was a staff member that was a sweet lady that was part of the breakfast crew! She was such a sweet woman to talk to! Our bathroom door didn't not close and the closet door was closed by magnets so it opened in the middle of the night and ended up running into it in the darkness.
Late night front desk staff went above and beyond. The daytime host at the restaurant is rude and condescending. This is the second stay during which he has been such. I may not take my meals there for my stay later this month because of his smart ass presence.
21C is an awesome bar/restaurant/gallery/hotel. We were excited to stay there on our first night of marriage since we had our first kiss there three years ago. The staff is excellent and the energy superb. Unfortunately there was absolutely nothing distinctive about the room. For a hotel as well reviewed as this place, there needs to be a serious statement in the room with either art pieces, the design of the room, etc. This room could have easily been a new Westin or some urban Marriott concept. The rooms we stayed in had there share of use and will probably need to be renovated relatively soon. So if I were you, I'd save $100+ per night, stay at the Brown or Seelbach, and spend your savings on dinner and drinks at 21C/Proof. Or heck, get a boss Airbnb in the Highlands or Nulu.
The location of the hotel was great. Close to everything and a great value! Our room was very clean. It smelled good, not musty or smokey like some hotels I've stayed in, and the hotel was nice and quiet. I would highly recommend this hotel and we would stay again. The mattress was a little too firm. Also we could have used a few more pillows. But that would be the only complaint.
Would have liked trash picked up and clean towels more frequently that once per week.
The front desk staff knew what they were doing. They answered all questions with a smile and what they said was a fact. The valets went over the top to accommodate our special requests and there were several. If you want to stay near 4th Street Live. This is the place. The free breakfast was great and the happy hour was too. Stay here when in Louisville. I know I will again. I did not meet a single employee who was not friendly and professional. Well done all.
Super downtown hotel, excellent service, very modern and contemporary furnishings. My meetings were across the street in the old outdated Selbach Hotel which was full. I am so glad that I chose to stay across the street at the Embassy, so much nicer setting. Thermostat didn't allow the room to get cool enough and the beautiful glass shower allowed water to leak out onto the floor.
Good Location next to 4th Street Live and near to the convention center. Free Shuttle from airport a real plus. Newer hotel in an older building. Bathroom was very large but surprisingly the bedroom area was on the small side. Everyone on staff at the property seemed very nice. Enjoyed the hot breakfast and happy hour. Housekeeping was not so good. Coffee rings on counter remained through my stay never wiped up. Returned to my room one day at 5 PM to find the room was never made up so the next day I called to housekeeping to make sure my room would be cleaned before my 5 PM return only to come back to an untouched room. Very disappointing. Blackout drapes extremely hard to open or close. Had to call maintenance and the pull rod fell off one time. Maintenance said these drapes have been a constant problem.
The hotel was newly finished and was beautiful. The location was centralize and idea for activities in the downtown area. I travel often and regularly stay in a variety of hotels which fall into this category (many of them are also Embassy Suites.) However, In my many years of travel I have never found a larger group of rude, dismissive, and unprofessional employees then those of Embassy Suites in Downtown Louisville. Not until my recent visit to this hotel, was I ever given the impression that a hotel staff was intentionally trying to NOT be accommodating and/or helpful. It interesting that a team in the service industry, would seeming go out of their way to do this. This is also rather disappointing, considering that I paid almost $700.00 for two room and a 1 night stay. I would think for that price I should NOT have a "supervisor" raise his voice to me, then publicly shame me for booking through a 3rd party booking site (apparently this makes you a second class citizen and justifies them treating you poorly,) and then proceed to scream at me "what do you want me to do about it." Please keep in mind that this was in front of my friends and about 20 stranger in the lobby, oh and 10 other employees of the hotel... Classy! All of this stemming from their in ability to accommodate the simple request of adjoining rooms. Also keep in mind that I had called this hotel several times in the days prior to my check-in and spoke to a variety of people regarding this. All of whom told me different things - everything from "sure, no problem," to "I've added a note..., "or call back on this day and tell them to..." Also during this train wreck of an experience, I had two employees who couldn't even find my reservation, one of which did everything but call me a liar. However, he did manage to rather blatantly imply that I didn't really have a reservation and that I must have either made a mistake, or was making it up to pull one over on them....are you kidding me?!? As it turns out, the only reason they couldn't find my reservation was because the employees didn't understand that if you are trying to pull up a booking from a later date, you have to change the date of your search to that day and not the current date... Sounds rather basic... Of course, I can't blame those employees - clearly they were poorly trained! In short - unless you want to be verbally abused by the staff and be made to feel bad because you only spent $700 on your room(s) instead of $750, this is not the place for you.
fairly quiet there was something that the 1st nite maid could of done but I forgot now....room by elevator was a little loud, shakey
The room was beautiful! The bed was better than the one I have at home! & everything was very clean! Only down side is the complementary breakfast is over a bit early & the pillows get a little flat as you lay on them, but nothing a good fluff can't fix!
Very clean, modern facilities, complimentary happy hour was popular for a reason, staff was friendly. Highly recommend. Crazy family birthdays on the weekends.
Very comfortable beds Pillows not as comfortable
Nice view of the river. Had some nice bar/ restraunts within walking distance. Food in the hotel were very expensive
The rooms were very clean and plenty of space for 3 adults. We really appreciated the shuttle service to the forecastle music festival It was a bit pricy, but this is probably because of the music festival
nothing. Actually, looked pretty clean. But no blanket for the bed; sheets were see-through thin; human and animal hair on the sheets; no box springs so not comfortable; mattress slid on metal rack that it sat upon. Will never go back-a night in the car would have been as comfortable. see previous comments. Will never stay there again.
Impressive breakfast spread
Staff was very friendly. Lobby was pretty, breakfast was above average for continental type breakfast. Free shuttle to anywhere in downtown area until 11pm. The carpet in the room smelled damp. While the hotel is 'centrally' located, being right in the downtown area, it's not exactly the nicest part of downtown but this is subjective. Also, two drunk guests walked into the elevator, one of them smoking a cigarette on the elevator. Maybe smoking in public areas is acceptable at this hotel but it's definitely not something I was accustomed to encountering. Overall, I wasn't super satisfied with the hotel.
Within walking distance to Yum center, 4th street, and many restaurants. Staff is very friendly, loved the coffee bar, and didn't have a problem getting a late check out. Will stay again! No problems or complaints
Good, centralized location. Walkable city. Lots to see and do. The hotel staff was very helpful and knowledgeable. Room was well appointed with plenty of outlets for charging electronics. Breakfast was well stocked and with a good assortment of food from which to choose. Pool was clean, exercise room had purvey of options from which to choose. Even on the eighth and highest floor, the street noise (esp frequent sirens, fire trucks, etc) was loud. We were traveling with expensive medication that required refrigeration (not freezing) and were aghast to find the water bottle in the fridge frozen solid in the morning. Even after turning the controls all the way down, the temperature was still enough to freeze water overnight e next day. The tub drained very slowly and the toilet seats are the cheap kind that slip across the rim of the toilet, leaving one feeling off-centered when seated. The shampoo 'samples' are in such small bottles that it's nearly impossible to get much out (particularly given that there's not that much in there to begin with).
Close to 4th Street and downtown Helpful staff
Traveled with my teenage daughter. The hotel was centrally located and 3 blocks walking distance from 4th Street. The free breakfast was ample and we felt very safe. Room was clean and comfortable. Staff was very friendly too! 1. There was a parking charge which wasn't noted when I booked. Chose this hotel because I like to park myself (and thought it was free) vs paying valet most other places. If I had known of the fee I would have just gone somewhere else and paid valet. 2. Bathroom - No fan in the bathroom made it a hot steamy mess. Also the tub drained so slowly it filled up during the shower. I'm surprised no one cleaning the shower noticed/reported the slow drain.
I made the mistake of showing up a day early for my reservation. The hotel staff found me a room anyway. The hotel was clean our room was clean and the staff was very friendly. They do offer breakfast but I didn't get up for that. I did go to a place called Toast on Market for breakfast and it was very good. The location is great. They offer a free shuttle to anyplace downtown but that is something else I did not take advantage of because everything is in walking distance. We only stayed one night but we bounced around downtown Louisville for the entire day and we were able to leave our car parked on the hotel lot for free. Eddie Merlot's Steak and Seafood was a fantastic place to have dinner as well. Great food and great service.
Great location & quality without paying through the nose. Rude guests on our floor, nothing to do with the hotel or staff!
Staff at front desk, cleaning staff and staff in the breakfast area were all very friendly! I travel VERY frequently for business and truly appreciate that the towels I hung up were left there for me to re-use (as suggested by the notice in the bathroom). I would say this only happens 1 out of 10 stays. Usually I get totally new, clean towels even when I hang up my used towels. It's important to me to save energy and other resources and when a hotel advertises its green policies it means a lot when they stick to them. Thanks so much to the housekeeping staff for being environmentally conscious! Hampton Inn continues to be my hotel chain of choice for pleasure and business travel.
