Overview

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.

Guest rooms are spacious with comfortable furnishings, flat-panel televisions, in-room coffeemakers and free basic Wi-Fi. Guests can choose from several types of accommodations, ranging from Deluxe Guest Rooms in the hotel's two towers with king or queen beds to Executive Suites that have separate living rooms with pullout sofas.

The hotel features one of the only full-service spas in downtown Louisville, and there are great river views from the hotel's Club 360° Fitness Center on the 18th floor. There are also seven restaurants and bars on site, including RIVUE, one of the nation's few rotating restaurants 25 stories above the city, and Jockey Silks Bourbon Bar, with a selection of over 150 bourbons and other whiskeys.
