Enjoy laidback Southern hospitality at our Louisville Holiday Inn Express® hotels. In no time you'll be relaxing with a glass of Kentucky bourbon or cruising the Ohio River on the Belle of Louisville steamboat.
Our Louisville hotels are close to the riverfront, a perfect vantage point for seeing this Kentucky city. Cruise in style aboard the Belle of Louisville, the nation's oldest operating steamboat, and relax to the rhythm of the stern-wheeler. Nearby, the Louisville Slugger Museum and Factory celebrates America's favorite pastime, baseball. Take the factory tour and see how the famous wooden bats are carved-or swing for the fences with replicas of bats used by baseball greats like Babe Ruth and Ted Williams. Flamboyant hats and fanciful racing silks fill the displays at the Kentucky Derby Museum, on the grounds of the nation's most legendary racetrack, Churchill Downs. Our Louisville hotels let your experience the city's storied racing heritage, a tradition at the turreted track since 1883.
Begin your evening as the locals do, seated on a breezy veranda and sipping traditional mint juleps from a frosty silver cup. Your hotel in Louisville is close to the city's downtown restaurants, known for their fresh, locally sourced ingredients. Fill up on smoky, slow-roasted meats, flaky buttermilk biscuits drizzled with honey and generous helpings of local produce. In the evening, sample a golden-brown Kentucky bourbon in a downtown bourbon lounge as you relax over live blues or country music.
Stay at our hotels in Louisville and discover all this riverside city has to offer, and more. Take a short road trip through the rolling Kentucky hills to visit the historic distilleries of the Bourbon Trail for free tours and samples.
The Hotel was very clean with a welcoming and friendly staff. My family and I stayed for 1 night and did not use many of the hotel amenities.[Less]

I would recommend Candlewood Suites to all my friends.[Less]
We are very pleased with Candlewood Suites. As Spire members, we are able to continue our eating style when we choose to prepare a food item.
In addition, when we have mentioned a concern they[More] have moved forward to give the necessary attention.[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]
