Because of health issues, we needed to change our reservation to one week later than the date originally booked. Both Travelzoo and the Galt House were very accommodating with our request, and that accommodation is sincerely appreciated.

I had booked a king size room with a river view but when I arrived they told me that all the king size rooms were booked and I would have to settle for a queen room with a City View. This was a valentine getaway for my husband and I and I think every couple would enjoy a king size bed instead of two queens. After a while of chatting with the clerk he lowered the price of our room I would have rather had the king size room but he was apologetic and willing to work with me. I was a little disappointed in the booking system. I would go back to Louisville, Kentucky for sure! A fun and ambitious City that's full of life and hospitality!

The rooms were very dated - didn’t even have a hair dryer! Felt like because we used Travelzoo rate, maybe not treated as well. Called restaurant for reservations. Told booked solid. Found plenty of table and times on Oprn Table!
