Hyatt Place Bowling Green

Louisville, Kentucky

The hotel

From dawn till dusk, the creature comforts and free treats come thick and fast at Hyatt Place Bowling Green, located on Western Kentucky University’s hillside campus. You can wake up to complimentary breakfasts at a.m. Kitchen Skillet™, where hot sandwiches are served alongside their Bread Box, Bowls Bar, drinks-stocked Fridge, and freshly brewed Seattle’s Best® coffee. And you can end the day sipping creative concoctions at Coffee to Cocktails Bar, before snuggling up on the sofa in your room’s affectionately named ‘Cozy Corner’, maybe with a movie on the 42” TV or using the free WiFi. In the hours between, you’ve got a heated outdoor pool, StayFit Gym, 24/7 dining, and a complimentary shuttle to attractions within 5 miles of your Bowling Green base.

The room was very clean and the view was good. It's a quiet place with nice furniture. There was no trash bag in the can. The sink was clogged the entire time. Woke up to no running water in the bathroom. And sink was still clogged. All they said to us was "I'm sorry". We will never be staying there again.

The property is nice and the breakfast is great. The rooms were clean, but I can't afford to stay here again. I wouldn't have stayed this time had it not been for a family event. If you have the cash, stay here. It's in the middle of the WKU campus, so if you need to be close to the campus, it's a great choice, too.

The staff is courteous and thorough. We we had an issue with our door not latching. The maintenance man was there within 5 minutes and fixed within 15 minutes. The hotel is clean and located on the campus of Western Kentucky University. It is convenient for visiting our daughter and if you are there to catch the Hilltoppers in action.

When we discovered this hotel was basically on campus, we were thrilled. Staying here made our visit to WKU convenient. The room was spacious and clean, and the breakfast was one of the best we've had in our recent travels. We'll definitely stay here again.
