Book a room in one of our Holiday Inn® hotels in Louisville and enjoy a taste of the Bluegrass State. Take the pulse of the city's racing heritage at the Kentucky Derby Museum, then sample barrel-aged Kentucky bourbon in riverside restaurants.
Our hotels in Louisville put you at the center of the city's best attractions. If you can't be here on Kentucky Derby Day, watching brawny thoroughbreds thunder around the Churchill Downs track, do the next best thing. Explore the tradition of America's most famous horse race at the adjoining Kentucky Derby Museum. Baseball greats have long made pilgrimages to downtown Louisville for custom-made wooden bats crafted at the Louisville Slugger Museum and Factory. You can't miss it: a giant baseball bat towers over the entrance. Our Louisville hotels put you close to the Ohio River, where the nation's oldest operating steamboat, the Belle of Louisville, still transports visitors on leisurely river cruises.
It's a quick drive from our Louisville hotels to a hub of restaurants near the Ohio River. Dine alfresco on warm evenings and cool off with a traditional mint julep served in a frosty silver cup. Riverside restaurants in downtown Louisville make the most of Kentucky's rich farm heritage. Look for savory, slow-cooked meats, buttermilk biscuits and veggies grown in the lush surrounding hills. After hours, relax over live country, blues or indie rock music in one of a dozen local downtown Louisville clubs, or visit a bourbon lounge and sample the oaky, golden-brown drink of choice among Kentuckians.
Book a room in our Louisville Holiday Inn hotels in May, when the city sports its most ostentatious hats in celebration of the Run for the Roses-the Kentucky Derby. Whenever you visit, you'll find Louisville bursting with Southern hospitality and high spirits.
Hotel was under construction while I stayed there. No pool, no gym. It had a dated feel, but staff were polite, and room was updated. Wireless network was intermittent, which was disappointing. [More] Location was good.[Less]
I enjoyed my stay and was very happy with my room and the service there.[Less]
Clean comfortable room
The room was very clean and comfortable. Staff was very pleasant. I was greeted by every staff member I encountered, from the front desk to the maintenance personnel.
Two things that I see could[More] be improved. Having ice machines on every floor, instead of only even floors. (I was on the 7th floor and had no ice machine)
Also the internet access in my room was very poor. I was completely unable to connect one night, and other nights it was super slow.
Overall great visit, even though the pool and fitness center was closed due to construction.[Less]
Nice rooms / Breakfast was terrible
The A/C in the room was a bit tough to get use to. Either it was too cold or too warm. The breakfast was almost uneatable. With that said I would still stay at this hotel.[Less]

Excellent hotel facility. Centrally located. Very clean and comfortable. Convenient complementary breakfast and Wi-Fi which is a very important criteria that should be available in all hotels.[More] Customer service is professional and courteous. Would definitely stay here again.[Less]

Everything was clean, beds comfortable, staff friendly, Checking in and out was easy. I always look for a Holiday Inn when I travel. Some don't have convenient plug ins if a person has to use a c-pap[More] machine for their sleep apnea. We used Holiday Inns for our whole trip of 8 days. The one at Wilkes Barre, PA was exceptional.[Less]
clean and modern
With many of the Holiday Inn Expresses being new, they have been very clean, modern, colorful and comfortable. But the staff puts them over the edge, at the three we stayed in in the SE, everyone[More] was very friendly, helpful and kind.[Less]
finally a Hotel in Louisville that is clean, The decor is outstanding and so fresh. I travel a lot and it's always a challenge to find a hotel like this one.. Pictures on the internet are always nice[More] but when you arrive it's all different. ALL Hotel should be like this one. I travel more than 90 nights a year for business and it can be a nightmare
I will go back for sure. It will be the only Hotel I will stay for now on in Louisville.
All Holiday Inn should change and refresh like this one.[Less]
Repeat Guest at Holiday Inn Express
This was my second time recently as a guest at a Holiday Inn. This hotel has certainly improved their hotels. The staff was friendly and the hotel looks new. I would certainly look for this hotel in[More] other cities. Although the rates are not super cheap by the time taxes and other charges are added but still comparable to other hotels. I would recommend giving it a try.[Less]
