21c Museum Hotel

Louisville, Kentucky

The hotel

A hotel and a contemporary art museum combined, 21c is pretty unique! Chic and boutique, the hotel prides itself on offering the highest standard of service in comfortable surrounds. When you’re not admiring your room, admire the art instead with thought-provoking exhibitions and interactive art installations on display. 21c is also home to an award-winning restaurant and a bar hailed as one of the best in America, serving an impressive bourbon selection and inventive cocktails – a Caroline Rose anyone, or a Poison Arrow? Jonathan Searle is Head Chef at the restaurant and the menu showcases the best of southern cuisine, including delights such as Cornmeal Fried KY Carp, Stewed Okra and Skillet Cornbread. The deserts are pretty special too with Fried Peach Hand Pies and Sweet Corn Cookies to tempt you.

Great hotel in the heart of downtown Louisville... RIght by 4th street live and all the bars and night life. We came in for a Cardinals game and this hotel was an interesting change of pace. Loved the concept and the rooms. Staff was friendly and we appreciate the hospitality.

21C is obviously the perfect hotel for a weekend getaway to visit Louisville museums. Not only is the location perfect - Museum Row - but the hotel itself fills the bill with its many beautiful exhibitions.

If you want to be surprised by a whole lot of good art in one place, visit 21C Museum Hotel in Louisville. The Hotel itself is a large art center/gallery housing some of the best contemporary art exhibits in the region. They have works by some of the most famous contemporary artists of the times. The Hotel is located adjacent to Museum Row in Louisville and it is a short walk to several top of the line museums. KMAC was excellent. Don't forget to visit the Speed Museum while in Louisville, a short drive from the 21C Hotel location. The Hotel was beautiful, friendly, restaurant was great and the who;le place just had a good vibe! Top of the line for comfort! Read less
