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.

This hotel/museum is awesome!! The artwork is the personal art collection of the founder of 21C. The staff is full of information regarding the museum and are always willing to help and give suggestions on having a great experience. Each room is different and always clean and fully stocked.

I've stayed at this hotel a couple times and have nothing negative to say. I've also used their fitness facility and found it to be clean and I felt safe when by myself. The hotel restaurant also has great food and an equally attentive staff. Read less

The rooms were stylish and very comfortable and clean. I was really happy to see my favorite Bourbon (Wilderness Trail) in the lobby gift shop and the bottles were picked by the 21C staff. They also had it in the bar and the bartenders knew everything about the Bourbon and also made great food recommendations. As if everything wasn't perfect enough, we got to meet SLAYER in the hotel lobby! So basically a perfect night. We highly recommend this hotel! Read less

I was not expecting such a great experience as a hotel guest. I'm a local and have visited the museum before. Since some friends were coming to town and had a very early start the next day on some local adventures, I decided to stay at the hotel also. It was like staying in a hotel in a world city like New York or Paris. Great service, great… Read more

This is truly a "not to miss" experience. My first trip to Louisville, and a C21 property. I will definitely be back AND stay at this hotel. Great location, wonderful food, comfy-clean room, and loved the bar!

Superb experience. Will stay for business or pleasure. Wished 21c was in my local market - Miami! The museum and food/beverage are outstanding. It is very unique to stay at 21c, and this particular location was central to all the Louisville has to offer, not to mention really close to airport. Thank you for a wonderful stay.
