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.
The hotel was very nice and clean. The room was comfortable. The bed was very tall, so I asked the front door for a step stool and they provided one for us. There is quite a bit of construction in[More] front of the hotel which limited some parking, but other than that, it was an excellent stay.[Less]
This hotel was undergoing renovations during our stay. Other than that, this is an excellent hotel and I would definitely stay again. The staff was awesome and the facilities were very clean.[Less]
Cleanest place I've stayed
By Conference stay
There were staff cleaning everywhere, but not at all in the way. We were greeted in the lobby with fresh cookies, fruit infused water, and fresh popcorn. Everyone was friendly. I just wish we could[More] have stayed longer and enjoyed the accommodations more.[Less]
A great stay
This hotel is a perfect example of what I have come to expect from all Holiday Inns. The rooms are comfortable, amenities plentiful, and the rates are reasonable.[Less]
Hotel in Louisville
Good place to stay in the Louisville area. Since Holiday Inn wants a longer response, I'm going to type random words to make this 50 characters long so I can get out of this survey. I hope this is[More] now 50 characters long.[Less]
Everything went well. The charge to my room was wrong, but got fixed. The thermostat in our room was broken, so we couldn't change temperature. We didn't complain about it. We enjoyed our stay. [More] We have stayed there before, and will stay there again. It's a great hotel. The staff are very friendly and helpful.[Less]

I know it hasn't bee that long since this property remodeled, however, I think it could use a tune up. Cracked tile in many bathrooms, stains on carpet, shower rods have clearly come down once, twice[More] or more[Less]
