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.

21c is a very nice hotel! I loved the art and the restaurant! The food was delicious and great! It was a quick stay for business but it was enjoyable. My co-workers loved it as well and it was close to my meetings.

We stayed on a Saturday, and the lounge was packed. But very friendly servers and the front desk staff was super friendly and inviting. Rooms are nice and big - but a little cold. As in decor. But beds are comfy!

I'd recommend 21c to anyone looking to visit and stay in Louisville. Great staff, comfortable rooms, amazing restaurant (PROOF), and eclectic. Not another cookie cutter property lacking character. This is a hotel that stands out.

If there is one place to hit while in Louisville, KY, this is 21c Museum. The rooms are state-of-the-art; the art exhibition equally fascinating. Would return there tomorrow if I could! Get a corner suite as a treat if you can. The view and setting are totally worth it.

What a cool hotel/museum. Don’t miss it if in Louisville. I will be sure to stay in their other hotels in other cities. The artwork is amazing and the curator’s tour was fascinating. The art installation in the restaurant was incredible.
