Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


The Galt House Hotel in downtown Louisville is a sprawling facility with over 1300 rooms and suites, and remains the city's only waterfront hotel, located along the Ohio River. Connected via a skywalk to the KFC Yum! Center and centrally located downtown, the hotel is walking distance from multiple restaurants and attractions, including the Muhammad Ali Center, the Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts and the Evan Williams Bourbon Experience. 

Guest rooms are spacious with comfortable furnishings, flat-panel televisions and in-room coffeemakers. Located in either the SUITE Tower or the RIVUE Tower, guests can choose from several types of accommodations, ranging from Deluxe Guest Rooms with king or queen beds to Executive Suites that have separate living rooms with pullout sofas. Two-Bedroom Waterfront Suites include a balcony overlooking the river.

The hotel features one of the only full-service spas in downtown Louisville, and the only outdoor pool area in town from where you can relax and watch boats float down the Ohio River (open seasonally). Another great view is found at the hotel's Club 360° Fitness Center on the 18th floor -- workout access is $5 daily. Other amenities include a complimentary Shopping Shuttle Service to the Outlet Shoppes of the Bluegrass, a barber shop and a selection of on-site shops and boutiques. 

Come meal time, the Galt House Hotel has you covered with six food and beverage outlets. Entertain clients at RIVUE, kick back and enjoy a selection of bourbons in the cozy European-style bar Jockey Silks or even satisfy your late-night pizza craving at Thelma’s Deli. Chef James Adams leads a talented culinary team and utilizes organic Kentucky home-grown products year-round.
