21c Museum Hotel Reviews
We had a lot of issues with this hotel - the rooms, the communication with the front desk, etc. A big thank you to David Hall for helping us out and resolving our problems. The rest of the staff... more »
We spent 5 nights at this unique hotel in a great location. The rooms are very nice, but the hotel includes a museum open 24/7. Plus the dining room is very foody and the bar has very local Bourbon... more »
Such a great place to pop in when walking around. The art was beautiful and very well displayed. Numerous rooms holding various treasures and a refreshment bar with soft drinks, coffee, tea and sparkling water offered to guests free of charge! Free museum and free refreshments! Wow. I particularly loved the boats crafted by the heart doctor. Very similar to the precise moves you make doing heart surgery, making large scale boats fine tunes those skills. It’s a must do when in the area! Staff are kind and courteous. Everyone wears a smile and gleaming eyes.
I love this hotel/gallery concept. This is the first 21C Hotel and it is situated in downtown Louisville. Proof On Main is one of the restaurant concepts within the building and it is excellent food, service, and atmosphere. The upstairs and lower floor galleries included great exhibitions and the art installations on the main floor in common areas were all interesting and engaging. Overall, I couldn't ask for more, and had an overall great experience. I would recommend this for any traveler!
