A shot away from Whiskey Row, Louisville’s Only Waterfront HotelTM has quite the history.

Originally a 60-room hotel, The Galt House Hotel's rich history dates as far back as the 1800’s. It was famed for being Louisville’s best hotel, known for hosting notable figures to the likes of Abraham Lincoln and Charles Dickens.

Centuries later, The Galt House Hotel continues redefining what it means to be Legendary Louisville®. Its most recent distinction? An $80 million dollar transformation that’s underway, complete with a rotating artist-in-residence, vibrant guest rooms, enough space to host 4,000 attendees and seven new restaurants.

Located in the heart of Louisville, here are five ways to experience the gracious welcome that The Galt House Hotel is known for while creating a legendary experience outside of the meeting room.
