... br> At the Baseball Museum I discovered that we were now in Eastern Standard Time which meant we had to dash to the Kentucky Derby Museum before they closed. We barely made it I’m so glad we did. We saw a 360 degree movie on the history of the Kentucky Derby, zoomed through the museum (what I saw was a lot of pictures of horses, leis around the ...
The day is FINALLY here!! My countdown timer, built for me by my incredibly talented hubby, was over 300 days when it started. It is now down to less than 2 hours! I have already threatened to dump everything out of suitcases so that I can the dogs with me but I am pretty sure the dogs would have a different view ...
It's all done now but for the leavin'..! My heart is racing and breathing is not being done in any kind of normal way. Of course, 5000 last minute complications have shown their ugly little heads but they have all been dealt with and now it is on to a VERY long night. I am pretty sure sleep will be optional for Eric and me both but it might help us sleep a little easier on the plane ...

From there we went directly to Heaven Hill Distillery which was only 20 miles away. 86 different bourbons distilled there. Many were private label, some aged as much as 26 years selling for a measly $400/bottle. The facility was no frills and we didn’t care for the bourbon’s ...
We be rolling. This past week at Habitat/Tuscaloosa we saw two new house dedications and one unique and special event. House #39 was located at 20 Juanita Drive and was the new home for Kathy Pickens. That was dedicated on Monday. On Wednesday, Constance Crowells new home on 18th street in the west end was dedicated.

Historical Traveler Reviews Executive Inn Louisville
Great Location, not so great comfort. Double beds are only full size not queen as most other hotels. Matress hard - both my husband and I had back aches the next day - all day (we are in our 30's). Swimming pool and restaurant not recommended for kids under 13. More for a mature crowd that is going to spend all day somewhere else and is too tired to care how comfortable the room/bed is.
I have stayed here several times. It is nothing fancy. The rooms are a little old and tired when it comes to their appointments, but they have always been clean. The key is to stay in the main hotel and not in the wing across the street.
We reserved a room at this hotel not knowing much about Louisville or which hotel was the best. We were just looking for a nice to place to stay for a couple of days while going to Kentucky Kingdom and visiting other area attraction. We were really surprised at how nice this hotel was and for the price, you cant beat it. We got a package deal where they included tickets for Kentucky Kingdom and it only cost around $160 for two people for 3 days. Definitely a great deal for this kind of hotel. It might not be the Hilton but you would never know. Plus, the staff was super friendly and the facility was always clean and attended too.
If you are considering going to Kentucky Kingdom or just looking for a nice place to stay . . . definitely check into this place!
Beautiful Hotel, Close to Everything
We've been staying at the hotel for years because of the beautiful courtyard and great location. When we want to go to the football game it's right there and when we want to go downtown it's only minutes aways.
My company scheduled a meeting there for one of our committees as well as a training session. When a group which came in together for the training arrived in their rooms, they were dirty and one room had drug parapharnalia in the room. They immediately checked back out and went to a different hotel. The meeting rooms were dark and dingy and the speaker phone didn't work well. We chose this hotel because we were under the understanding they just renovated and they offered us a great deal. I do not recommend this hotel.
Loved the Executive Inn
Great Location, near all major events in Louisville. Across from Six flags, 2 mi. from Churchill Downs, 1 mi. from Papa Johns Stadium.
Great rates. The Hotel updates are nice. Beautiful courtyard and pool.
Terrible shuttle service
We have stayed here several times because of the park/fly package with free shuttle to the airport. The rooms are fair, nothing special. It's worked well for us especially on early flights. However, we just booked 3 rooms for our family and had terrible service. We called after our luggage arrived, as they asked and waited for the shuttle for almost 25 minutes at the pickup stop. This hotel is about 2 minutes from the airport. We had to call twice. We had elderly parents who were uncomfortable standing on the pavement that long. When the van finally arrived, the driver was not at all apologetic or even friendly. There was no excuse for this kind of service.
Could have been better
Service was decent, but the room service kitchen was going to take an hour to make a cheese pizza at 10 PM. Decor needs UPDATING. Hotel was probably nice in it's hey-day. We had to request a refurbished room b/c our originial room had damage to the bathroom door, and room was decorated with what looked like garage sale furniture. Refurbished room was better, but still had the headboard of the olden day rooms. Someone had left their 4-5 pornographic magazines behind in the room, on top shelf that was in plain sight of any 5"7"+ person. Front desk staff said that's not standard when advised of the situation. Amenities were the best part of the hotel. Pools were HUGE and nice. Has tanning and massages available.
Fantastic hotel, best location, best people to deal with. Have been staying here for different events for over 15 years. The best!
This hotel was in the best location. It was located straight across from Six Flags, and it was beautiful. It has an indoor and outdoor pool, a bar, a restaurant, and beautiful rooms.
