Imagine a destination truly of the place, a big city with a small-town feel. Welcome to the city of unbridled possibilities, surrounded by inspired charming experiences in every direction. Powered by sips of mint juleps and the triumphant spirit of Kentucky Derby jockeys, Louisville’s new era sets the scene for high-impact conventions and conversations.

Historical Ties

The Galt House Hotel dates back to 1835, which it was a 60-room property. Since then, it has become the bastion of Louisville charm, opening its doors to dignitaries, residents, and everyone in between. It was only a matter of time before The Galt House Hotel received its Legendary Louisville® name.

A Legendary Culture

Kentucky is the birthplace of bourbon and artisanal distillers, which have been perfecting their recipes for over 200 years. Nestled in the heart of the Urban Bourbon Trail and just a couple blocks away from 4th Street Live!, The Galt House Hotel holds a cache collection of bourbon that many travel to experience. Toast your way through the city for a front-row seat to Derby City.

Food for the Soul

With myriad dining experiences opening in downtown Louisville every year, The Galt House Hotel’s seven new restaurants went for an ingenious approach to Southern fare. Each outlet tells a story — from bourbon flights in a top-shelf lounge to brunch or the Belvedere.

Boundless Opportunities

Louisville's art and museums are at the epicenter of the city’s culture. In addition to the distinguished scene forming a block away on Museum Row, The Galt House Hotel instituted a rotating artist-in-residence program that will grow into a platform for new and upcoming voices in the world of art.

Ushering in a New Era

Although Louisville embraces its well-earned spot in bourbon, horses, and big hats, it's also a world-class city brimming with charisma and Southern grace. There’s an exciting resurgence along the Urban Bourbon Trail, including the reimagination of a historical landmark intrinsically bound to Louisville, its citizens, and the banks of its lively waterfront. 

The Galt House Hotel is on the cusp of its latest chapter, following an extensive $80 million renovation that will introduce fresh design with spirited Southern experiences in its rooms, restaurants, and event space. Along with its 1,310 guest rooms, The Galt House Hotel offers a legendary 140,000 square feet of meeting space, making it Louisville's largest hotel conference venue. 

The Galt House Hotel is the city’s most celebrated address, serving up a well-crafted cocktail of graceful hospitality on a grand scale. You are sure to receive the Legendary Louisville® stamp of approval when planning at The Galt House Hotel.
