A travel blog entry by hulcher

Our day included several stops. We stumbled upon the Lincoln Boyhood Memorial Park on our drive through Indiana. We browsed the museum that honored Lincoln's boyhood to his early 20's. Our next stop was Churchill Downs and the Kentucky Derby Museum. We had a tour of the grounds, saw a video about the race and enjoyed ...

    This hotel is an experience all on it's own. The art is great and the overall quirkyness makes for a unique and memorable stay that you will never forget. Check it out, at least once!

    Historical Traveler Reviews 21c Museum Hotel Louisville

    Am I in---Kentucky?


    My room was cool; I liked it more than I thought I would. One wall was exposed brick. The other wall had art posters pinned to it in the area above the bed.

    Great modern upscale hotel


    We got a great deal on a room off the hotel's website and were really impressed with the place. From the art to the bar to the cool bathrooms in the lobby, this place is unusual, hip, and modern. The rooms did not disappoint - great minimalist decor with beautiful bathrooms and plasma TV. I would stay here again in a minute. I just hope they build more 21C hotels elsewhere!

    Small Kinks didn't offset the experience


    My husband and I only had Saturday night to spend at the hotel, and we took every turn to enjoy it. He called to confirm our booking before we left and was assured the room was reserved. When we got there 2 hours later we were informed that due to some AC problems the King Riverview was unavailable, so they downgraded us to a regular king, and dropped the rate. It would have been great for them to have said this when he had called to confirm, because the internet rate would have been lower than what they put us at for the night. They did allow us to have a later check out however.

    A+ for 21C


    We just returned from a weekend at 21C Hotel in Louisville. What a great place. The accomodations, service and staff are top drawer. The rooms are comfortable, clean and quiet. And the decor is such fun. The art collection in the lobby and throughout the facility provides entertainment at every turn. Don't miss the bathrooms off the lobby. We had dinner at Proof on Main, the hotel's restaurant where the waitstaff was attentive and the chef accomodating to make some substitutions to allow us to remain on our diets. The food was outstanding. Stay at 21C Hotel if you like contemporary upscale and interesting places. It's not your standard Marriott or old world Seelbach Hilton.

    Awesome- 21 C


    Just returned from an awesome stay at the 21 C Hotel. The service was excellent. You feel as though you are staying in a 5 star hotel in NY city. The hotel is near the new Muhammed Ali Center and the Louisville Slugger Museum. I highly recommend both. The rooms are very cool- ours had a large balcony that is shared with the room next door. This would be great for 2 couples. Large red penguins roam the halls. Also - if you love horses make sure you take the stable tour at Churchill Downs (and God bless Barbaro!)

    Great weekend at 21C


    My wife and I spent a weekend (May 13 & 14) at the 21C Hotel in Louisville. Very nice room with a view of the Ohio River. One wall was all exposed brick. Very nice! The room had a 42 inch flat panel TV. A cute feature was plastic penguins scattered around the hotel, in the corridors, on the elevators, etc. Quirky and cool. The hotel also has a museum with offbeat modern art. Worth experiencing.

    The room was very clean and quiet. 500 count Egyptian bed linens. iPod radio in the room.

    Will definitely stay there again.

    Unique, hip, and memorable!


    We were going to be traveling through Louisville, and were intrigued by various online descriptions we read of the 21C. So we reserved one night there, and were absolutely delighted. The staff is personable and efficient, the ultra-contemporary decor is jaw-dropping, and the spacious rooms were plush and well-appointed with comfortable beds, abundant luxury toiletries, and high-tech amenities that made it a special treat. Best of all, we snagged a bargain rate online of $119.

    Interesting!....and Funky


    The best thing about this hotel is that it is NEW!...new fluffy towels...new comfy bed linens, new carpet....you get the idea. If you are into contemporary art you will LOVE this place. Frankly, all the funky art displays were wasted on me, but I still loved our stay here. The lobby is unique, to say the least, but lots to see. It is very secure; the elevator requires your key before it will take you up to your floor. Downtown location, but very quiet, and seemingly, well insulated. Rooms are modern with sleek furniture, but very comfortable beds and european bed coverings. Lovely soaps, flat screen TV - infact, all the elctronics are state-of-the-art. The price was wonderful at $149 after staying in a dirty, substandard motel the night before at $135.

    Ready for the Derby!!


    My wife and I stayed there for our anniversary last week, and the hotel is living up to its praise in all of the news articles. The staff is prompt and courteous, and the rooms are perfect. I love the exposed brick walls and plasma TV's. Beware of the roaming giant penguins in your hallway. The stoic figures seem to conspire together when you are not looking and move about the halls.--- oooooooscary! Good luck getting a dinner reservation anytime soon at Proof. I tried to get one 5 days in advance, but no luck. Anyway, there is EXCELLENT dining within 1 or 2 blocks. Jarfi's Bistro at the Kentucky Center for the Arts is our favorite. You also have a choice of Morton's Steaks, the Bristol Bar and Grille, Vincenzo's, and many others. Plus, we like getting out for a walk just to look in windows and people-watch. Breakfast at the hotel was delicious, but the service was terribly slow and understaffed. I hope that situation will resolve soon. In all, Hotel 21C is a great addition to the Louisville downtown area.

    Great New Hotel


    I just spent 3 nights at the 21C Hotel. The rooms are very plush, with 42 inch flat screen tv's and IPODs as well as exposed brick walls, excellent lighting, great fabrics on the bed and furniture, comfortable chairs and a large desk. I enjoyed being able to remove the hotel's ipod from the bedside alarm clock and listen to my tunes by placing my own IPOD in the device's docking station. The rooms seemed very quiet with big thick walls. I know I never heard anyone and noone complained about my rockin' out with the IPOD.
