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.
