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.

It helped to keep the attendees active and enjoy the scenery inside the hotel, besides Louisville itself. Read less

Friendly staff and best housekeeping. The food prepared for our conference was fabulous. Loved my room. However the hotel restaurant (Proof) was overpriced and really not that good. I also found some of the art to be offensive.

Beautiful quiet room overlooking David and the Ohio. Proof on Main was extraordinary. Liked the art but a little more beauty and a little less sermon would have been better. Staff accommodating. I would love to return.

Not the least expensive place to stay but we knew that going in. Always enjoy the exhibits at the museum. Location is great. Able to park on the street for free after 6 on Saturday and all day Sunday.
