On 4th & Main, the Galt House is where guests come to experience, immerse and delight in Louisville’s winning spirit. No other hotel can grant guests access to the city like we can, from our central location in the heart of the business community, museum district, cultural center and Urban Bourbon Trail, to our unique waterfront location. Our status as the “official hotel” of all that matters makes us Louisville’s always-iconic hotel and ultimate lifestyle destination, reflective of Louisville’s energy, excitement and contemporary spirit.

In our commitment to guest safety we have partnered with Onsite Health Solutions to offer in house testing for COVID-19 located in the Sunflower Room of the Galt House West Tower.  You can schedule appointments by emailing Onsite Health Solutions at support@healthyworksite.com or calling (502) 426-1170. At the Galt House Hotel we are built for scale so inquire about our rates for groups as well.  We are committed to meeting safely and this feature gets us one step closer to doing so.

“This was our first time to Louisville. Of course because of COVID things were a little different but that was to be expected. We checked in with Ricky. He gave us a huge welcome and took care of us. The checkin was very smooth. I would highly suggest a river view. It was amazing."

“This was such a beautiful hotel! Our room was lovely and had a great view of the river. The staff was so friendly, and when they found out we were on our Honeymoon, they surprised us with treats in our room!“

Heidi – Booking.com

“Beautiful historic hotel right on the river. We visited and fell in love, scheduling the revolving restaurant that night for dinner. Sat in the bar which wasn't open for the view. Wish it opened earlier for a Bloody Mary experience“
