... playing in Louisville. I met and played with Eric in LA a couple of years before I moved to Alaska. Then I found a job for him and he moved up to Fairbanks. Now it's been 22 years and the reunion with my two old (yes like me - old) friends is giving me new strength. Kirsten is taking it all in and being a wonderful ...
Just a small little update! It's official! I'm traveling tomorrow! I will take my flight fairly early in the morning! Right now it's 11:14pm and I plan to be at the airport at 7am! First ever flight Here I come! I think I will get nervous for the flight since it is my first time ...
The falls area was covered by a shallow tropical sea and the layers of rock that are exposed contain fossils in vast numbers and variety of species. It is a great place for kids to look for fossils - and find them.
Tomorrow we break camp and head for Dayton, OH to see the Wright Brothers Air Museum.
Note: On the pics I spelled "Churchill" incorrectly - the program will not let me go back and fix it -- sorry.
... the traffic slowed to a crawl. It took us about an hour in the Pigeon Jam to get through Pigeon Forge - we figured that everyone was checking out of their hotels and hitting the road.
As we got to I-40 headed for Knoxville the traffic got lighter but the rain kept going. We got delayed so much that we stopped for lunch a few miles north of Knoxville - and the rain was coming ...
... I had them give me a mix of bills so I got to see a verity of different images on the money. I was surprised though when I flipped the money over to see English on the back. I know they speak a lot of English over there but I guess I just wasn't thinking about that.
Also, at the moment I am waiting for my unlocked cell phone to arrive so I can make sure it is working ...
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.
