Very disappointed in this Christmas event, which was billed as "magical" and guaranteed to put you in the Christmas spirit. The displays looked tacky and cheap. Please save your money and skip this ripoff.

Booked a Christmas package to start the holiday season. Yes the hotel is old and could use some updating, but the friendly atmosphere and the Christmas cheer MORE than makeup for some of the complaints I have read. The hotel is in a perfect location within walking distance of everything. With all of that out of the way, lets get...

We were traveling to Louisville to see Wicked at a downtown theatre and wanted to stay at a hotel within walking distance. Also wanted local flavor not a big chain hotel. We couldn't have been more pleased! We were right on the river's edge and loved our clean beautiful room. The staff were kind and helpful! The Galt House seemed...

We stayed at the Galt House for a few days for a little R&R with the family. This was our first time at this hotel. We loved the Christmas theme throughout the hotel. It was so pretty and festive, especially loved the roaming carrollers and the dancing bellhops. We were on the 24th floor in the Rivue tower. It was...

Sorry, but after residing in a Galt House Apt for a year, I was unable to collect promised reimbursement for damaged clothing. Damages were result of malfunction of apartment washer Several staff members agreed to send "check already cut" in July. Even Hotel GM contacted, no one gave even courtesy of reply. I will not recommend or return to the...

For the cost of the room, I was disappointed with the overall experience. The location was a selling point for the hotel and did make our stay easier but for my first impression of what I was expecting from "The Galt House" I was disappointed.

It's a huge hotel and at one time was probably the place to stay. That being said it is showing its age and is need of an update. I stayed with some colleagues during the Future Farmers of America week and the hotel was very busy. My room was dated and it could have been better cleaned. The staff was...

Hotel was very good. The room was very clean. It was very festively decorated for Christmas. I didn't' eat with the hotel. I didn't use the house cleaning service. The parking was quite affordable. I was pleased.

Nearly everything at the Galt House during my stay was perfect. The room was large and clean, there were plenty of towels and privacy, and the staff was great. The restaurants (I tried out 3 of them) were wonderful, and the food was marvelous. I'll definitely be planning another stay when I'm in Louisville again!
