There was a water main break and the hotel did not have water for hours. We had to leave without taking a shower.

The location was great! The rooms were very spacious, especially with having the living area total separate from the bedroom.
Other Comments
It is an older hotel and our door did not close completely without pushing on it, as if it was warped. However, the rooms were very clean and the staff was great. Everyone went out of their way to answer questions.

You could walk the riverfront. A lot of construction in the area so we didn't walk street side.

The location is good for exploring downtown Louisville.
Other Comments
Rooms were VERY dated and even public areas were tired looking. Not all of the elevators were fully functional, which was a challenge since there was a large conference at the hotel at the time.

The suite we had was very spacious. The staff were friendly.
Other Comments
There was a convention going on, and it was ridiculously overcrowded everywhere we went. Too many people were crammed into the elevators and way too many kids splashing everyone at the pool. Doors were slamming at 6:30am and a lot of loud people. There was only one small garbage can in our suite that had a separate living area from bedroom and bathroom.

Great location and view. Large suite and right price from travelzoo made it worth it.
Other Comments
There was a Christian conference going on and it was packed the last 2 day we were there. Took 10 min to get down from the 14th do on the elevator. Toilet leaked around the stool. Could not get hot water from the shower.
