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.

Stayed after our annual business party which is nearby. Hotel has continued to stay modern and super clean. We always enjoy our stays. No issues to report as this visit was faultless. Proof for lunch was tasty too.

I had a one day business trip to Louisville and decided to make it a long weekend with my wife, and I'm very glad we did. We had an awesome trip and an all around great experience with 21 C! My wife and I are in our 30's and really enjoyed the contemporary vibe of the hotel and museum, but also have a high expectation of professionalism, service, and comfort. 21 C delivered on all fronts! We have stayed at other boutique properties that get so caught up on being unique or out of the box, that they lose sight of the overall guest experience and comfort. That is not the case here, service seems to be a priority. Every member of the staff we encountered went out of their way to ensure we had a great stay. The museum is an actually museum, with very interesting and thoughtful exhibits. We had a great time exploring the art with a drink in hand from the on site restaurant/ lounge. We would definitely return to this property and look forward to checking out other 21 C properties in the future! Read less

Very Good except for the cocktail.. I had a whiskey sour that was in my opinion the worse I ever had.. My wifes drink was not as good as she hoped it would be. The bar was crowded and as one would expect very loud. We took our drinks back to our room.

The Art is always inquisitive and alluring to the eye. Very clean environment with southern charm provided by staff. Although we only stayed one night, our NYE was definitely a night to remember! Well done!

This chain is always a treat and such fun. From the creative art work everywhere, often interactive, to the outstanding staff and modern hotel rooms, our family chooses 21C as there go-to when we are traveling. Usually a great restaurant on site and this was no exception.
