We booked this room for the Kentucky Derby through Quindt Events. We found Quindt Events by calling Churchill Downs. This is supposed to be the only 5 star hotel in Louisville. Front desk very pleasant but never followed through on what they said they would do. Concierge desk is non existent. Bell captain was not working when we checked in and the room had one small bed when we had reserved 2 beds. We had to fight for a new room.

My primary dissatisfaction is because for our entire stay (two parts because the first night was on points, the remainder we paid for) our room was not cleaned/replenished even once. The first day was really on me because I forgot to remove my do not disturb sign from the door even though I did make note to one of the staff members (one who was cleaning a neighboring room) that we were leaving the hotel for the afternoon to please remove the trash. I only requested the trash be removed because ... Read more

Over priced for the room, meals, and bar. Granted, it is a historic venue, but $325 / night for a 12' x 12' room that needed repairs is extreme. The breakfast buffet would be barely acceptable if it would have been free, but this one cost $42 for 2 people. We are Hilton Diamond members, but won't stay at this one again.

For the price of this hotel I expected more. The lobby was beautiful. Staff at the front desk was helpful. However the room was a disappointment. Room was small. Two upholstered chairs were some of the most uncomfortable I've ever sat in. There was an awkward step up to go in the bathroom, and it was quite small. I expected more from Hilton, especially at this price.

Everything was nice but the customer service could have been better from the front desk staff. The key to my room did not work and I went to the front desk for a replacement and tried again and that key did not work as well. I have a broken foot, so I called from outside my room for them to bring me a third key and they weren't very nice about brining me one and took their time in doing so. Otherwise, my stay was very nice and the mattress and quietness of my room was great!

Rich in historical factors. other than that, it was just a nice hotel. the king room was just a king room. nothing fancy. the pictures of the lobby look better on the website than they do in person. staff was ok. they were not top of the line for the price paid to stay a couple of nights.

We've stayed at a number of historic hotels. Our room at the Seelbach was quite roomy, though the bathroom was small. It was comfortable. Our housekeeper had a sense of humor and decorated the towel swan with glasses and other items we had left on the table nearby. So cute! Room was updated with enough outlets and good AC. Elevators are so small. Are they legal? I am sure they are, but they are different and tough when handling luggage. The hotel lobby and other areas are lovely and the staff p... Read more

We stayed here for about 4 nights! The staff was very friendly! They went out of their way to take pictures of us and give us a small tour of the hotel and its history which we loved!! The Rathskellar was amazing! We can't believe we got to see what the speakeasies used to be like. The ballroom on the 10th floor is impeccable. The beds are very comfortable which is a must when you travel. This hotel offers class and style! So glad we stayed here.

The Seelbach Hilton is an older hotel(1905) with a lot of history behind it. The decor and furnishings are very interesting, and beautiful. It was clean, however, due to it's age, the rooms are very small and not real comfortable. Doors are very narrow, and the elevators are tiny and slow during check-ins and check-outs. It is definitely a place to see and stay once, but I would probably not want to stay there again.

The location is perfect. You can go to 4th Street Alive which is next block. You can walk to Riverfront as well... Park your car and forget it. The room was very nice. We were on the 5th floor and the view is really nice.. Caption on TV was bad. Staff were aware of it. The lobby area was so dark. I could not talk with the front desk people. This was very challenging.. Valet service was impeccable. Very nice people and they go beyond with great service.

The Seelbach has a great location, we were able to walk to so many restaurants and sites! We stayed during a weekend where there was live music on 4th. The late night noise didn't bother us at all but guests should be aware that's a possibility. It's an older building so it has some quirks that go with it, smaller rooms/bathrooms, some of the furnishings looked well loved and one night only 1 out of 3 lobby elevators were running. The entire staff was incredibly friendly and helpful though!

We went to the Sellback and what a wonderful old Hotel with yesteryear charm. the stories of Ghosts and Gangsters and F. Scott Fitzgerald writing the Great Gatsby. We loved the service and the cocktails although a little expensive were excellent. Al Capone used to spend a lot of time here and secret tunnels underneath to help him escape. Ghost on the 10th floor and one in the bar area as well. Ask the Bartender for stories. Very nice close to everything.

It is feel with old charm from the grand staircase and rooms. It has a lot of history of the city and was open in the 1900's. Renovations has been done but it still have the old history charm. Some of the rooms are very small and to me that is okay if when traveling alone. I stayed in a suite this last visit and had enough room to move around to do work on my business tasks. I would ask next time to not have a step up bathroom. Overall, it is a nice place to stay.

My wife and I have stayed & attended functions here on several occasions and find this place quite charming. We enjoy exploring the building, especially the Rathskeller Room downstairs. Now, this is an old hotel and the rooms/bathrooms are small. Still, no complaints. Like most hotels, you can get packages to have wine/champagne and cheese/fruit plates waiting in your room for you. Always a nice treat. You are next door to 4th Street Live and right across the street from Eddie Merlot's. Loca... Read more

This renovated old hotel had a lot of charm. The party room in the basement is amazing - filled with 1930's flavor. The guest rooms were well appointed, the location was excellent, and the employees were amazingly caring and helpful. We hosted a brunch that was terrific and the attentiveness of the service personnel was superb. Overall a very enjoyable experience.

The Seelbach is a Louisville staple that has been a part of the city for generations. It is a nice old hotel that is a fun place to stay for a few nights every once in a while, just because of the service and the atmosphere. With only one exception, every staff member has been extraordinarily friendly and helpful during our stays here. The rooms are multiple sizes and shapes and the beds are very comfortable. I will stay here again.

The Seelbach is beautiful hotel , it has so much history . The rooms are very small, as well as the beds. The meeting area is very nice and the service is very good. It is centrally located. They do have a parking garage in back of the hotel, alittle hard to get your stuff from the car to the hotel. No carts were available at the back entrance. Carts are only available at Valet.

I last stayed in Louisville in July 2016 at the Brown Hotel (which I liked well enough). I decided to give the Seelbach Hilton a try this time. Originally my reservation was for two nights, but my first night's experience was so terrible, that I checked out after one night. The hotel looks nice from the lobby, but the rooms are tattered, in poor shape and don't function properly. In a matter of 4 hours, I had to move to three different rooms for many reasons, but chiefly because the air condit... Read more

I have been to this hotel many times, and the staff have always gone out of their way to make sure that my stay is nothing short of fantastic. Friendly and attentive, the service at the Seelbach Hilton is by far the best of any Hilton property I have ever stayed.

This is a historic hotel so don't expect large rooms and airy bathrooms.....but do expect a comfortable bed with great linens and large clean towels in the bathroom. Friendly staff and a great on premises bar in the middle of downtown Louisville make this a 'must stay here' the next time you are in or close to Louisville.

In town for a wedding, we chose The Seelbach for convenience because the reception was held there and had such positive experiences here in the past. An historic hotel that maintains its stellar reputation. The reception was equally nice beginning with the cocktail party on the upper floor and the banquet on the lower floor. Beautifully decorated and the wait staff were wonderful. I don't know how it could've been better.

The rooms are small but very comfortable. They have a full service restaurant and bar on property. The staff is great, very friendly. There is a complimentary airport shuttle. As it is a full service hotel, there are not many complimentary amenities.

Have stayed at this hotel many times in the last five years. It's a beautiful place with small quaint rooms--that could use a bit of love to be honest. The place is generally very nice but here are a number of little things that hit you during your stay. The furniture in the rooms is fairly beat up. The provided breakfast on the seventh floor was pathetic and service there was nonexistent as well. There are no curtains in the bathroom and the building across the street has strong exterior lights... Read more

This is a beautiful historic hotel from the outside. It is is located right by 4th sweet live, so location is it's best selling point. The lobby area is very pretty, the check in attendants were very attentive. However, elevators are so tiny that 4 people are about the max fit so you are waiting on those a great deal. The rooms are a decent size, but the bathrooms are so small and the tubs are very old, along with the furniture. The breakfast on the 7th floor was very slim. For the price being s... Read more

This is a wonderfully restored hotel in a great location in downtown Louisville. It possesses that old world charm with all of the right modern touches. Staff was very attentive and welcoming. The room was comfortable as was the bed. Breakfast buffet was tasty, nice choices (not included), Starbucks right off the lobby was a nice option. The bar is a great spot to hang out, also had a meal in there that was tasty.

The hotel is a beautifully restored historic building. The lobby, halls, and elevators give you that historic feel. The staff that we saw was nice enough. However, for the price of the "King Deluxe" room we reserved, I would have expected something better and larger. The room was barely big enough for the king sized bed, with little space to walk around it. Definitely not meant for two people. The bathroom was even worse, with the tiniest sink I've ever seen, and barely room to maneu... Read more

My fiancé and I had a great stay at the Seelbach! The staff were so friendly and eager to help us. We took a tour at the hotel with night security Steve Williams and he was awesome! Answered all our questions and showed us all the historic parts of the hotel. He gave us great information and was incredibly personable! Would definitely recommend this hotel and a tour with Steve!

My boyfriend, dog, and I stayed here this past weekend for two nights. The guys that worked for valet were very pleasant. I was able to check in, choose my room, AND GET MY KEY on my phone, so I didn't even have to stop by the front desk. Love that! Room service was not really worth the price, which is why I knocked it by 1 star. We ordered room service 3 times, and they had almost nothing on the dessert menu. My salmon and collard greens also weren't cooked the best. They were also out of a bun... Read more

The Seelbach's a charmer on the corner of Thomas Merton Square, at the intersection of Muhammad Ali Ave in downtown Louisville. Hard to go wrong with an address like that. Great old bar seemingly popular with overdressed up-and-comer young locals who like pricey bourbon and bellowing "Dude" at each other and their dates. Tenders were attentive and subdued. Beds v comfy. TV remote batteries intact and fresh. Water pressure excellent. Lovely berries for breakfAst up on the 7th floor for Hilto... Read more

I stayed at the Seelbach for the whole month of October while working at Norton. I was able to bring my two dogs and it was a very convenient walk from the hotel to downtown Norton. The executive lounge food was hit or miss but overall all facilities and employees were very accommodating.

The Seelbach Hilton is a beautiful hotel that combines a historical building with modern amenities. Additionally, the staff is excellent. They are friendly, helpful and kind, whether you are looking around the hotel or asking for help in exploring the city. While it is true the rooms may be smaller then other Hilton hotels, especially the size of the bathroom, I had no problem as I had plenty of room with two adults sharing one room. Plus based on the charm of the hotel, especially the unique an... Read more

Spent the night at the Seelbach Hotel in Louisville Kentucky this month. The room was small but beautiful, with high ceilings, marble floors in the bathrooms, soft warm beds and fabulous appointments. The hotel is a perfect picture of how hotels were built in 1905. It has been restored and is clean and new without losing the feeling of the old hotel. The staff was courteous and friendly and very helpful. Food in the Gatsby was delicious. Service was excellent.

Have stayed here a number of times for business but this time brought my wife and best friends/couple. We completely enjoyed the stay, our rooms, the lobby, the Seelbach bar in the evenings, the Executive Lounge. Everything about our visit was perfect. Even the greeting and help at the front door was exceptional. We all will return. The concierge in the Executive Lounge, Larry Johnson, is exceptional. He provided us with many of the sites we visited, so many that we have to return.

I recently stayed at the Seelbach on a business trip. This is a beautiful, historic hotel with a glamorous grand lobby -- typical for the era it was built in. My room was cozy and clean and had the modern conveniences that we've come to expect when we travel (wifi, plug in by the nightstand for phone chargers, hairdryer, makeup mirror, etc). However, I did have difficulty accessing the wifi from my room but some of my colleagues said that they didn't have a problem with it. (Perhaps it was the... Read more

This is a very fine old hotel that has managed to maintain the "Old Louisville" gentility in surroundings that carry one back to a different time with a more relaxed atmosphere and pace. The rooms are comfortable, not huge, but comfortable, beds are somewhat luxurious, though I am comfortable in saying that no one in management ever sat in one of their chairs watching television or visiting with friends for more than 10 seconds. Not a criticism, at all, as I really like this old hotel and will... Read more

We stayed here 3 nights while in town for Thanksgiving. We love the fact we can bring our dog for a small fee. It is convenient and the staff are very nice. Our water the first night took forever to get warm-then it was only lukewarm, we called and they fixed it while we were out. We used valet the first night-then self parked the other 2 days. We walked to everywhere we ate and did the Thanksgiving 5k-it is a little bit of a walk to the river but not bad. The fitness room was great too. ... Read more

You know you can expect a great stay from the moment the door opens. You can see the intricate detail of the old world craftsmanship from the moment you step inside. The building takes you back in time to the Gatsby era. The service provides you with a taste of how the wealthy lived in that time. Once you are back on the street, you are within a few steps away from great restaurants and activities at 4th Street Live. Great stay.

Yes. This is a beautiful hotel, but the front desk staff is rude and unhelpful. I've stayed here multiple times and always been happy, but today was just too much. I won't stay here again. The rooms are small and hot water is sporadic, but I don't mind that. It is just hard to justify spending this much money to stay at a hotel where I am clearly not a valued gues.
