Stayed here for three days while visiting Louisville for my wife's 40th bday. The hotel is a beautiful hotel and is just a few blocks from 4th street live entertainment area. The area was kind of quiet while we were there and we were ok with that. The hotel was within walking distance to a lot of restaurants, Louisville slugger museum, and flamrun glass co where you can blow your own piece of art. There is a self parking garage connected to the 2nd floor of the hotel where check in was located. We stayed on the club-level floor as it was only $20 more per night and we were able to partake in the offering in the club lounge each morning and evening. The hotel was about 2-3 miles from Church Hill downs, which is worth going to visit. If you are a bourbon/whiskey drinker the hotel is within walking distance of the Jim Beam midtown distillery and Evan Williams experience. I was really impressed with the local area as most places gave a military discount.
I would recommend staying in this hotel if you are going to be in Louisville for an overnight stay.
