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.
This new property still had the new smell. All was in working order. Bright bathroom lighting and adequate countertop space. Large screen TV. The breakfast was typical of Holiday Inn Express - good[More] but nothing all too special. I'll bring workout clothing next time to try out the exercise room on the second floor.[Less]
Very clean and great service
I had a wonderful experience here. The place was extremely clean. The staff was very friendly throughout the hotel. I also loved how the hotel was designed and decorated.[Less]

Close to airport with a great staff. The gym definitely needs to be upgraded.[Less]
Pretty much a standard night in a hotel
No one was at the front desk upon arrival, had to wait around for about 30-45 minutes just to get checked in. The room was nice and quite and the staff in the halls was exceedingly quite during the[More] morning hours. The restaurant/bar had a limited selection for meals but the staff was again extremely friendly and polite.[Less]
