Krissica stayed here on Feb 25, 2011 during their trip titled: Krissica's Great Adventure.
Yay! A flight without any drama! We boarded and headed on our way to Louisville with no problems. We got in about midnight. It had been snowing and the roads were bad on the way to the hotel. We were going to go to the Louisville Slugger Bat Factory and Museum but with the roads the way they were. It would just depend on what the roads are like in the ...
Today, we moved our motor home to Camp Carlson in order to warm it up, ie; thaw it out, charge the batteries, and get the heat pumps running. Most of the day was spent packing everything we need in order to live away from home for the next two months. It's amazing how much "stuff" you need! Pattie and I will sleep at the house tonight since we still have much to move to the coach tomorrow. Getting excited! We leave Saturday ...
I had fun today, saw a lot of history which is what I enjoy. I love American History. And it was a beautiful day. The wind was cold though but the sun was out. I'm just glad I didn't have rain because they had it the day before and the day after it was supposed to ...
This hasn't been my favorite hotel or overnight that we stay in but the location isn't bad. There's a lot of restaurants around and stores. Up until this trip, the highlight of my trip was walking to Walmart and Hancock Fabrics. But after I picked up a tourist book on Louisville, I realized there is a lot to do in and ...

We opened the curtains in the room and right below us was the 4th street live sign and entrance.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hyatt Regency Louisville
This is my most recent hotel visit. I attended a conference for college students involved in campus residential life, with over 800 students. The events for the conference were split between the Hyatt's meeting rooms and facilities at University of Louisville. Most of the nightly socials, including a Cranium tournament Friday night and a closing banquet/dance Saturday night, were held in the hotel. The first floor, with its myriad of ballrooms and boardrooms was confusing to navigate. This is your typical atrium-style Hyatt hotel. The newsstand sold 12oz. sodas for $1.99. They can do this since NONE of the vending machines in the hotel were working while we were there. Does anyone actually drink the $4 bottle of spring water left in the room?
Beautiful Hotel, no personality
We stayed from October 27 to October 31. It was a pleasanat place, but no employees ever talked to you. The staff was not helpful. In an expensivie place like the Hyatt, I expected at least a fast computer connection in my room instead of dial-up, which they charged $1.00 per call. No refridgerator in the room, but I will say the pillows were comfortable. The room was very warm and stuffy, and the only way to change that was to turn on the air conditioner. But, the location is great and the beds are comfortable, neat and clean.
The Hyatt Regency is a typical large atrium-style hotel located in the active section of downtown Louisville (there are large sections of downtown that are abandoned and empty). It is four blocks to the river, adjacent to the Convention Center, and next to the new Fourth Street Live. The concrete-clad building is absolutely stark, brutal, and uninviting on the exterior.
Great time in Downtown Louisville
Staff was helpful and courteous. Room was clean and spacious. We enjoyed 4th street live 1 block from hotel and fireworks from our room window. Would recommend to anyone considering stay in Louisville.
Stayed at the Hyatt downtown. Always seemed to wait for the elevator. Bell boy broke a coffee cup of mine. Apology the only thing offered. 4th Street Live was GREAT!! Every town needs this. Lots of shopping at Mall of St. Mathews, Oxmoor and The Summit. Satisfying dinner at Buck Heads Bar and Grill.
Nice rooms, rip-off restaurant
Very convenient to 4th Street action. Short walk. Restaurant is EXTREMELY overpriced. TOTAL RIP OFF! Don't even THINK about eating there! Room was very nice and I would stay there again.
Hyatt was great
The Hyatt downtown was great! Nice restaurant within the facility. Rooms opened to interior overlooking the lobby with glass elevators. Fun for the convention we were attending. Housekeeping staff was excellent. Within a block of the new 4th Street Live, the home of Hard Rock Cafe, TGI Friday's plus outdoor concerts the three nights we were around. The trolley takes you to the main street or you can easily walk to the Louisville Slugger factory or the science center. If you are looking for shopping, there is NONE downtown at all! A couple of nice galleries but that is it! Very disappointed there. The dinner cruise on the Spirit of Jefferson was a nice diversion. The Bistro downtown had good food also.
Not a place to stay if you're a business traveler
This is supposed to be a 4 star hotel... the restaurant was over priced for the mediocre food it served, the Bar service was terribly slow, you were lucky if they even said hello to you. There was no high speed internet access, which is important for the business traveler. Never again!
Not what I expect at 4 star hotel
We took our young children to Louisville, stayed at the Hyatt. Food and service were horrible. OZnly 3 elevators, which meant we stood in line for as long as 20 minutes with a crying baby. The valet was fantastic as was the service from the bar. Ate in the cafe for breakfast, a buffett. It was not edible, sent it back, ordered Eggs benedict with hashbrowns, muffin was soggy & gross, potatoes were taken off the buffet, as they were burnt and cold. Service at this time was even worse.
A very nice Hotel, Resturants and lounge. Very helpful staff one of the best staffs Ive run across actually.
