I visit Louisville once or twice a year. I've stayed at the Galt House, Hyatt, and 21C and I prefer The Sheraton Riverside in Jeffersonville. Here's why:
1. Location - With The Sheraton, you get the same location as the downtown hotels, but for a much better price. The Sheraton is right across the river and you can walk over the 2nd Street Bridge to get to downtown. There are also several restaurants right next door to the Sheraton including Bearno's, Rocky's, Hooter's, and The Bristol.
2. Good Service - the hotel staff is always friendly. I've always gotten a room with a nice view of the river or downtown Louisville on a high floor. They also let me know that if I sign up for the free Starwood rewards program the bottles of water in the room are free and I get a free newspaper. Nice.
3. Really nice workout room - See my pics. The Sheraton has a well-kept workout room. Lot's of cardio equipment and a separate room with a wide range of dumbbells and machine. There's also a pool, but it's too small for fitness swimming.
4. Nice Rooms - The rooms are easily as nice or nicer than the downtown Louisville hotels I've stayed in. The only exception may be the 21C rooms which seemed a little bigger and a little nicer but not so much that it's worth paying a lot more for.
5. Free Everything - Free and convenient parking which you don't get with the downtown hotels. Also, free (and fast) internet and free Starbucks K-cups for the Keurig coffee maker.
I've stayed here three times as it's now my Louisville go-to hotel. Don't expect an amazing 5-star resort, but it is a solid hotel that's a much better value than the other downtown hotels.
