The view from the rooftop restaurant. The music coming from the Belle of Lousville.

I did not get the room I booked and paid in advance for . They said there was no such room type , so we got a king suite overlooking a parking garage that was disappointing . The ice machines need cleaned out , we had floating stuff in our ice bucket after the ice melted everyday. Not to mention the hundreds of kids there for a youth basketball tournament ! I did log into the Galthouse website and saw it had a Wyhndam brand logo and the room type I purchased from you . I then brought it to their attention and they apologized saying they were just converting over as of last week and the systems were acting up but no offer to change rooms .

Location is very convenient to many restaurants and bars. Elevators were quick with little wait. Hotel ion the Ohio River and there is sidewalks to walk all along the river.

The wait to check in was very long and seemed to be that way the entire time of our visit. Parking is expensive at $20 per day in addition to the room rate. The restaurants at the hotel are expensive. Even the small cafe sodas price was $3 for a 20 oz bottle. The housekeeping was lacking- there were coffe grounds left in the in room coffee maker. Housekeeping never came to our room until after 3:00 pm- the hallways had leftover dishes from other guests room service all day long.

Check in was an absolute nightmare - took an hour standing in line. Apparently there was a large basketball tournament and the front desk was SEVERELY understaffed. Not a good welcome to the hotel.

We had reserved an executive suite in the suite tower. We were taken to a regular room in the revue tower. It took about 30 minutes of phone time and then another visit to the check-in desk to get this corrected. Then came the transfer of luggage to the correct room in the other tower; and it was still not right because they didn't have a king suite available-only a 2 queen beds suite. For our inconvenience, the hotel comped us one breakfast.
