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 boutique hotel with amazing art. Not a 5 only due to some minor service improvements neede in the restaurant. Not a fan of the front desk choice of art. Perhaps better in a less conspicuous place.

21C has a wonderful vibe. The penguins add a quirky and fun touch. The atmosphere is sophisticated and fun. The restaurant has delicious food and the location is convenient to other places in Louisville.

We will seek out a 21c in our future travels. We had so much fun bringing our conference friends back to tour the museum each night. We took full advantage of having an excellent restaurant on premises.

The art makes it special, the rooms make it comfortable (that bedding!), the overall style is elegant and modern. The people make it amazing. 21C is special enough for us to choose out for our wedding, wedding dinner, and entire night.
