    Historical Traveler Reviews Louisville Marriott Downtown

    Most Excellent Hotel


    My wife and I stayed here. It is a GREAT hotel. The staff are just awesome - customer service the way it should be. The main restaurant, Blu, is very tasty. Have the bourbon cannoli's - they provide a distinctive taste of Kentucky!!!! The staff, from the valet parkers, to the front desk, to the staff at Blu, to the housekeeping and maintaince staff - they conduct themselves in such a manner that is very impressive. The hotel is clean. You can walk one block to the new 4th Street shopping-restaurant district which includes the new Hard Rock Cafe.

    The pool and hot tub are very good. The hot tub is actually hot - very nice.

    The only downside was that while the hotel is wireless - there was a expensive charge to use the computers in the business center so bring your laptop or be prepared to pay a lot to check e-mail.

    Overall, this is one of the best hotels you can stay at and you will have a great stay!

    Has the potential to be the Best in Louisville


    Have been traveling to Louisville weekly for the last 6 months. Tried several hotels in the area, this place is the best. Like most hotels, it has come a long way since they first opened earlier this year. The hotels are small but modern and comfortable. The gym is the BEST of any non-resort hotel (w/ 3- 42" Plasmas). I travel on business approx half the year and I have now become a loyal customer. As they continue to iron out the kinks with service and keep their rates reasonable, this new hotel has the potential to be the best in Louisville. The only downsides are the cost to valet park and you have to pay for interent access. Regardless, I would definitley recommend, and say hello to the door-man Mr.Ed, he's one of the best in the business.

    This hotel is perfect


    This is a brand new hotel and there is nothing not to like about it. The beds are fabulous and the hotel is immaculate. You won't find anything nicer if you are into comfort and cleanliness

    Incredible Facility, excellent hospitality!


    We stayed at the Downtown Marriott and were treated royaly! Beautifully designed facility and excellent location in downtown ,close to Expo Center and Churchill downs making for a great week while we were at the Junior Olympic Invitational Volleyball tournament! They were very friendly and supportive of our team and we actually won the tournament!

    Great Hotel


    My wife and I stayed 3 nights at this hotel and loved it. They have the nicest staff of any hotel we have ever encounter. Everyone was friendly and helpful from the bell staff to the valets to the front desk. The hotel was sparkling clean and has a great location. Fourth Street Live is about 2 blocks away and Churchill Downs is a short 5 mile drive. We are looking forward to going back.

    Was very excellent.


    Loved it very much. its so nice inside and outside too. the works was so great they should keep up the good work that they are doing now.



    As a surprise for my birthday, my wife treated me to a day at the races at Churchill Downs. We stayed one night here and it was great! Check-in was smooth. The room was very clean and quiet. The hotel is about a $10 cab ride to the Downs. Valet parking was $20, which is bit steep considering there is a $7 a day lot behind the hotel. It's about 2.5 blocks to "Fourth Street Live" (shopping, Hard Rock Cafe, etc.).

    Of special note, the room service was wonderful! We had a late dinner that was delievered quickly. Breakfast was also very good and quicky delivered. Having stayed at many Mariott's, I would rate this one near the top.

    Awesome Hotel


    This hotel is great! The location is excellent! Only a couple blocks from Fourth Street Live, and just a few blocks from the riverfront and a bunch of other attractions. The rooms are extremely nice. The beds are great--nice warm down comforter. Linens are definitely a higher quality than most hotels. The lobby is beautiful. Two restaurants and bars to choose from in the hotel. The Starbucks in the lobby is a great addition. The only bad thing about this hotel is that they charge you for internet access $9.95 from noon to noon. So, if you need internet access (like I do), make sure you get it after noon. Oh, and the staff is great, too. Everyone is extremely friendly and helpful. I highly recommend staying here. It's well worth it.

    Gestapo at the Marriott


    Hotel was good but the staff was so worried about "thunder riff raff" coming in to the hotel that they made you feel like you were staying in a high class prison.

    Loved the Marriott


    Stayed at this brand new Marriott in downtown Louisville on business in April. The service was excellent and the room was very comfortable and very clean. The view from the room wasn't all that great, but every hotel has to deal with that in downtown situations. Would definitely stay here again!

    All week the weather forecast called for 50 degrees and heavy rain/thunderstorms during the race. Thankfully, I was prepared. We stayed at the Marriott in downtown Louisville, which made things super easy. Race start time was at 7:30 AM and I woke up at 6:45, threw on my race clothes, and walked out the door.

    The race itself was nice, …

    Since neither of us felt like an enormous breakfast, I checked Yelp (my favorite app for discovering good local restaurants no matter where I travel) and found a little bagel and coffee shop a half mile or so away from our hotel. Over an Everything Bagel (me) and a Blueberry Bagel (Richard), we tried to figure out what to do for the day...and …

    I am slightly crazy. I am self-aware enough to know that most people don't set a goal of running a marathon in all 50 states. But here we are.

    This was supposed to be Marathon #8. Alas, circumstances have dictated that I only run the Half (13.1 miles). Still, it's a nice weekend away and I get a medal!

    Hello Kentucky! Now let's get down.

    We departed Ohio today and headed for the 10th state on our summer vacation road trip: The Bluegrass state of Kentucky.

    Before leaving Cincinnati we had breakfast at an interesting restaurant called Sugar n' Spce which had a kid-fun theme as you can see in my pictures. Along with cartoon characters painted on the wall were rows of small rubber ducks. Not sure of the story behind these other then the waiter says the owner collects them and shares one with each guest, ...

    ... ME go!" As a team, we can all attest to blessing that have already been bestowed on us by the generous gifts of donations to send us to Nicaragua. I personally have been so overwhelmed by God's provision that I have been tearfully knocked to my knees when opening donations to send my son and I on this trip. Next time you see me, ask me about the gift that was much like the "Widow's Offering" in Luke 21:1-4 and ...
