    A historic hotel, indeed. The Seelbach had a part in The Great Gatsby (called the Muhlbach Hotel in the novel, F. Scott Fitzgerald was stationed here prior to WWI) and was also a haven for Al Capone in the whiskey-running era. These days it's a well-maintained, small, stunning establishment.

    Thankfully it was a decent hotel considering it was teh only one with a room left before the Derby.  There is a Starbuck's off the lobby for your morning jolt.

    It was ok. Lots of history and character. We do occasionally bring out of town guests here to peer in on the al Capone room and the rathskeller. We stat a couple of years ago--just not my taste. Room was very small. Bed was very high. And the abundant ghost stories made it a bit spooky (especially in light of the decor).  3 1/2 stars--giving an extra 1/2 star bc of the oak room and rathskeller.

    nice to stay somewhere that was not Generic America.
    Great hotel with great service.  My room had a four poster bed and was very nicely finished.
    The only downside with an old hotel is the size of the rooms, if you tried to swing the proverbial cat, you would bang it's head on at least two walls!
    The hotel bar is awesome, listed in some magazine somewhere as one of the 50 coolest bars in the world.  I dont know that I would go that far, but it was quaint.
    I will stay again if in Louisville

    Crappy overly priced hotel... good central location but better to stay at the Marriott or other hotels in the area.  It might be historic, but the room doesn't need to feel like it.  

    The food was horrible... thankfully a Starbucks is caddy corner to the place.

    Overall, crappy. Don't waste your money.

    I have a Love-Hate relationship with this hotel.  
    My company had a contract with them so this is where everyone stayed when in town for meetings.

    Love the Old Seelbach Bar. Lots of good times here. Beware of the bourbon-soaked cherries that the bartenders hand out to unsuspecting females!  I learned to appreciate Woodford Reserve at this bar. (I'm a wine drinker usually)

    I love the Big four poster Beds in the rooms. Always cozy.

    I love that the breakfast that is always delivered on time. Food is
    so-so but at least you can get a bite in and some coffee before you are ready to greet the world.

    I love the historic painted frescos in the lobby and the story that the hotel is haunted.

    I do not love that there is only a tiny shelf in the bathrooms and almost every one is tilted so that your stuff rolls right off!

    I do not love that the doors have a good 1 1/2" crack under them so that you can see people's feet as they walk by in the hallway (and enjoy their conversation). Not to mention the blinding light shining on you as you try to sleep.

    Last but not least, I do not love that the rooms are all so very dark even with all the lights on and that the elevators work sporadically.

    PS. Never had any problems with on-time shuttles but never trust the wake up call system!

    Would Stay Again.

    Excellent Service
    Beautiful Lobby
    Nicely Appointed Rooms
    Nice Lobby Bar
    First Rate Dining at The Oak Room on 2nd floor.

    Enjoyed the history, the architecture, & the location.

    No complaints and room price was reasonable.

    I wish I could have stayed here on my recent trip to Louisville. Stepping into the lobby is like stepping back in time. It made me want to dress up like an Edwardian lady, corset and all, and swish around the lobby with a parasol in hand.

    The interior just screams classic turn of the century luxury hotel, with lots of details wainscoting, huge ceilings, frescoes, tile, dark wood, and bronze. The hotel is a welcome change after walking through the abomination that is Fourth Street Live. I was glad to just walk into somewhere semi-civilized that returned my trust in humanity.

    The breakfast at Otto's was delicious, featuring a buffet with smoked salmon, creme fraiche, fruits, pastries, bagels, biscuits and gravy, french toast, eggs, omelets, and several different juices. For such a spread, the price was not too outrageously expensive. We had tried to find somewhere open downtown, but it seemed all the little cafes were closed on the weekend, so Otto's saved us.

    Front desk staff was less than friendly but the bell hops more than made up for it. I would agree that the beds and bathrooms are small but the rooms are clean and well maintained. Even with my sporadic schedule, housekeeping cleaned each day and provided turn-down service each evening. If you are lucky enough to have access to the concierge level, you are in for a treat after 5pm and good company for breakfast. My primary complaint would be that hotel staff was rather loud in the hallways early in the morning even when I had my "do not disturb" sign hung. I was woken up several times.

    Very friendly staff, great hotel overall with lots of things to do and places to eat within walking distance. The front desk was able to upgrade me to a queen junior suite due to my diamond status with hhonors. My only gripe is that parking is a hassle as I generally prefer not to use valet.

    Visited April 2011.  3.5 stars ... service was nice; our room was not cleaned for some unkown reason but that wasn't a huge deal (hmmm ... or does that secure another star?).  Rooms are tiny.  We were upgraded to a suite which was nice 'cause my significant otter and I would've been trippin' over one another otherwise.

    Very STRANGE hotel.  Back in 2002 came back to get my car from Valet only to be told that they had 'mistakenly given my Avis rental away.'  Then, one of the valets came out with my bottles of bourbon and CDs I brought with me and I was handed a 'hold harmless' agreement form letter.  You mean this happens all the time????  Told corporate travel when I got to airport and the hotel was placed on a 'no-go' list.

    I've stayed there many times and spend a fair amount of time in their bar, which has a good selection of bourbons and some decent live music (although I was told by one of the bartenders that the schedule has changed).  

    The rooms feel a bit cramped to me; it's what I like to call, the European feel.  But overall it's worth less than 100 dollars a night if you can get it, and you can...

    Old historic hotel, but lacks the cool vibe and amenities of modern boutique hotels. Staff is very nice, but stuffy. I guess it just isn't my vibe. What convinced me? The roach I woke up to sitting on the floor near my shoes! Gross, who wants to battle that at 5am. I will go to 21C next time

    What an excellent place to lay your hear for the night! I will work my way from the outside in. Location, location, location. Situated right across the street from the night life, and walking distance from the restaurants you may want to dine at the Seelbach Hilton puts you in the mix. You can just leave you vehicle parked for the evening.

    One you enter the hotel, you are instantaneously aware you are in one of the finest in the city. The vibe is very classic, old world. There should have been theme music as I walked into my Fred Astaire dreamland. The chandelier was particularly impressive.

    The bar was perfect, enough said! Dinner in the restaurant was a good experience, breakfast was as well. Good job on keeping history going Hilton!

    This was a beautiful hotel.  During my stay in Louisville (or...Indyucky...) this was a highlight.  The lobby of the hotel is beautiful--with a huge large staircase...it would be nice for a fancy affair.  The beds were heaven (though small.  they were like mini-fulls...fine for me, but maybe not for everyone)  The linens and comforters were clean and crisp and you could just fall into the pillows.

    The staff was sweet and nice--though they did not really give good tips on where to eat, we had to go to the Tourism Center for that...They had a nice shuttle to the airport (holla to Rick).  The hotel was quiet and clean.  There are two sets of elevators--one fast and one incredibly slow (I think that might be the haunted one...)  Crabtree and Evelyn goodies in the bathroom.

    The bar was dark but cozy--the wine filled to the rim.  

    Otto's the restaurant inside the hotel was good but the service there was so slow.  Like you should just get the buffet.  Actually when I asked for more food at the buffet (they had run out of tomatoes and mozorella...the host told me that he "thought" he could find some more...hmmm)  There is a Starbucks in the lobby (hello Lance and Will) and a little gift shop (hello advil)

    I had a hilarious time in Louisville--this was the best place to crash and call home for those few days.  A nice place to rest your head after your adventures.

    Legend has it that this hotel inspired the setting of The Great Gatsby.  It's worth a stay for the history and architecture alone.  The Oak Room used to serve much better food.

    I was just here for the 2011 Getting In Touch With Literacy conference. The hotel is beautifully breathtaking when you first enter it. The hotel staff were very accommodating considering there were many people who are blind or visually impaired staying at the hotel. The staff helped when needed and were kind. The food that was catered for the event was absolutely delicious. The rooms were small but had a lot of charm. Overall, I enjoyed my stay there.

    Checked out of the hotel today.  It's an okay hotel.  But really a Hampton Inn offers more.   don't get me wrong, it's very clean, very nicely decorated, the staff is quite responsive and helpful.

    But you get nickel and dimed to death.  Charge for parking $25.00/night,  wireless is 7.95/night or 45.00/week.

    The Seelbach is a unique historic hotel that's a great place to stay on business, but probably less so for leisure. The hotel is centrally located in downtown Louisville. There are plenty of nice bars and restaurants in the immediate vicinity. The hotel also houses the Seelbach Bar which is also pretty nice.

    The only cons to staying here would be the age of the hotel and the small rooms. The hotel can definitely use some renovating, but its not that big of a deal for the seasoned business traveler who is only there to sleep.

    The best thing about this hotel is the staff.  So helpful.  We had an issue in our room which required immediate attention and within a few short minutes 3 people came and helped with the matter.  We were provided another room quickly and efficiently.  The hotel is stunning.  Wish we had more time to enjoy it.  One of the best fitness centers in any hotel.

    We stayed at the Seelbach for a wedding over Labor Day. The property is located in a prime section of Downtown, a stone's throw from 4th Street Live. This was perfect, as both nights the group decided to venture over for some drinks.

    Rooms were really clean and decorative. Bed was very comfortable and compares to my Temperpedic mattress back home. Bathroom was small, but manageable with a large tub/shower. I was kinda thrown off by two things though: the lack of counter/sink space for toiletries and the inverted placement of the toilet/sink. In comparison to most hotel rooms, the sink was located between the shower and toilet. Thanks to my height (6'4") and the lower placement of the shower-head (about neck height, so roughly 6'), my toiletries and dob-kit would get soaked every time I would shower. I must say, the water pressure in the shower certainly made up for these minor issues.

    Didn't have an opportunity to experience the fitness center, but it looks very nice. Lots of cardio machines. Sunday brunch at the Oak Room was epic. We of course didn't pay, so not quite sure of the value, but damn it was tasty!

    The most valuable tip for anyone staying at the Seelbach with a vehicle would be to park 1 1/2 blocks away at the 5th Street Garage (630 S 5th Street) operated by PARC. The Seelbach Garage charges $16/day (without in/out privileges) or $21/day for hotel guests (with in/out privileges). Since transportation was provided for wedding guests all weekend and I knew $42 for two days was borderline robbery, I Googled nearby parking garages and found this one. The daily rate is $8.75 (without in/out privileges), but because we checked out on a Sunday (and holiday weekend), the parking garage gate was up and $42 was pocketed! If you are checking out of the Seelbach on a Sunday, I would give it a shot; worst case scenario, you save over $12/day ($21 Seelbach - $8.75 5th St). Let's just pray you don't have to retrieve your car during Tropical Storm Issac like I had to...

    I really like staying here while in Louisville. The rooms, especially the bathroom can be small. Each room is different so it's hard to say the exact layout.

    The hotel has a lot of perks. They have a complimentary shuttle service that will not only take you to and from the airport but other locations around the city. The concierge lounge is nice and the staff in the lounge are nice to talk to. Also it's not a bad continental breakfast in the lounge in the mornings. The ghost tour is awesome and will take you to parts of the hotel that you may not go to otherwise. They have nice toiletries for the guests with Bath and Body Works shampoos, etc.

    The location is also in a good area, right off of 4th Street Live.

    If I could give this Hotel more than five stars I would.  It reminded me of the grandeur of the Fairmont here in San Francisco.  The rooms were comfortable and cleaned on a timely basis.  The breakfast buffet was excellent, I especially like the biscuits and gravy.  The service exemplary.
    We did not even hear all the noise and commotion that was going on on 4th Street.  I would definitely go back again.

    Louisville and I are like the chemicals you combine to blow stuff up-everytime i go, I leave town with a massive headache/hangover combo. I think we need an intervention from each other.  But that's neither here nor there, so I'll get on to the hotel.
    Stayed here twice. It's historic and pretty, which also translates into small rooms. And super small bathrooms.  But I'm usually here for 1 night so I don't really care. The lobby is really pretty and the hotel bar makes lovely drinks. (From what I remember). They have jazz on Friday and Saturday nights in the bar. The location is perfect if you want to go to 4th Street Live-it's literally right across the street.  I've never eaten at the hotel so I can't really comment on that.

    I'd probably stay here again because the location is perfect.

    Elegant historic hotel. So while it adds to the southern gentile charm of the lobby and Oakroom bar, it also means the rooms are old and the hallway doors paper thin. Still, it is steps away from 4th street live and it really is nice. Above average toiletries. Starbucks attached is always helpful after a night of misbehaving. Also there is a room in the basement that would be perfect for infiltrating a reception with an open bar. The name of the the room escapes me but it is very cave like and trippy.

    Great historic hotel, and more. It certainly is a grand old hotel, with a beautiful lobby, cool bar (naturally with a nice selection of local Bourbon's), and with a neat past featuring many significant people in its history. Make sure you check out the rathskeller, on the basement level. the downsides are pretty much the same for any retrofitted old hotel.. small bathrooms, lack of pervasive wireless, etc. I have stayed here many times and the staff is always great, make sure you call ahead to get your car from valet.
    The location is terrific if you are interested in downtown events, or 4th street live.

    I stayed here the weekend of 22 April 2011. This is the first hotel which I have valeted my vehicle and I get it back with the original radio station not adjusted.

    This is truly a historic jewel, I agree the rooms do not have some of the amenities or features of a newer hotel but it is the best place to stay if you desire a taste of Kentucky. How many dishes can come bourbon soaked? The decor is gorgeous and this is one of the many things I love about my hometown besides Churchill Downs....

    This was a comfortable and relatively spacious room for an old school hotel. In short, it is classic, old ambiance with modern touches. The Rathskeller bar in the basement is awesome. Never seen anything even remotely like it in America. It ought to be the regular hotel bar but, it's not. Overall, the place was worth the money. They had genuinely friendly and helpful staff and, if you're in that mood, being right next to 4th St. is good.

    Omg!!! Best breakfast buffet EVER!  Tamela made our day!

    *** HAVE TO ADD THIS***  HIT AND RUN...  LITERALLY!!

    We were guests of the hotel for 2 days & the rooms were quaint, the breakfast was AMAZING, but the real issue arose when we went to leave... an employee of the hotel had hit our car in the parking garage & left the scene of the accident.  When the hotel was made aware of this by the eye witness and later myself & the police, the hotel did NOTING to compensate me or make it right in anyway.  I know they cannot be responsible for everything that happens with their employees, but come on this happened in the hotel parking garage and the employee willfully avoided the situation.

    Not only did the hotel ignore the issue but then I had to pay for parking, I mean seriously $21 a day is pricey for self park as it is but then to have my car seriously damaged with not even so much as an apology??? What happened to customer service?  I will NOT be staying here ever again and I suggest that they focus on restaffing with responsible and HONEST employees.  I hate to draw conclusions, but if the employee who committed a hit & run was in YOUR hotel room... what would stop them from committing another crime??

    Thank you Mr. Eye Witness for leaving that note on my car otherwise I would have no legal recourse and would be paying for the thousands of dollars worth of repairs myself!

    I am leaving my rating artificially high because Tamela in Otto's Restaurant as well as Mike and Peter at the front desk made this an enjoyable visit.  The rest of the stay was average, if not below.

    This hotel is beyond historic, it is a classic spot in Louisville. Beautiful walls, ceilings, winding banisters, columns. Even small, cute, old elevators (that surprisingly don't feel scary.) Going down into the basement is a must see, incredible room. As far as the rooms, they are quite nice - still that historic feel, with antique headboards. The room itself that I saw was a bit small, as was the bathroom, but the bed was comfy and there was a desk and chair and all the amenities.

    Not to mention a fantastic (though expensive) restaurant and classy bar to boot.

    At least go walk around and bask in the beauty that is the Seelbach.

    Tip: If you are here on the weekend, don't pay for valet! There are usually plenty of spots within a block. Meters are free Friday after 6 until Monday morning.

    Not often do I return to a place for a second time & immediately feel the need for an update... but...

    ... when you wander back to your room you'll notice a giant cooler of water in the hallway -- a free, open, unlocked cooler of water bottles no less. And you can have that water as a guest. Sure, I could get tap water with the plastic cups in the room. Or, I could get filtered / spring water in bottles that are cold in the hallway cooler. I've stayed in hundreds -- yeah, hundreds -- of hotels -- this is rare & this is bloody good. And worth of its own review update.

    The valet is still pricey *$25* but essentially essential. The Seelbach Bar is still connected *schew* and if you need to print your first draft of your prequel to On The Road in the business center on the 7th floor.. no one will notice.

    In all the Hilton updated hotels... the beds are always-always worth the price of admission.

    Free Water! (post zombie apocalypse you'll love this even more.)

    My wife & I stayed here recently & had an "OK" experience.  The location is very close to "Fourth street live", literally two minutes walking from all the activity on offer.  The general neighborhood is dilapidated with lots of vacant storefronts & homeless people staggering around.  

    The hotel itself is nice & grand looking inside, if somewhat tired.  The staff were very good & friendly.  Our room was so-so.  The bathroom was tiny!  You could not fit two people in there & the wallpaper was coming away from the walls.  The room size was adequate, but it didn't have a mini fridge or bathrobes.  I thought the room service charges/cost were way too high.  A service charge + a 21% tip comes with your bill & wine is 3x what you can buy it for anywhere else.  Valet parking is $25, which I thought was too high given the quality of the neighborhood.

    We would not stay there again, to be honest.  If you are wanting to party the night away at Fourth street live, then this a great location as it is "staggering" distance from the bars!  I couldn't recommend it for families or a romantic getaway, based on the declining neighborhood outside.  It's better suited as a business or a special treat when you're partying & don't want to drive home location.

    I've listed this hotel as "pricey" based on their room rates & what the rooms actually look like when you enter them(bathroom included), as well as room service & valet costs.

    Everything was great until...we left our room at 3:00 p.m. I asked the maid on the floor if she'd be cleaning our room. She said "yes." I apologized for not being able to let her clean the room earlier and gave her a $5.00 tip. We came in around 2:00 a.m. and the room had never been cleaned.

    The next morning I didn't want the maid to get in trouble and wasn't going to complain, but then became irritated b/c we had to hunt-down coffee and towels.  I called downstairs to the front desk (9-29-13) and informed the gentleman at the front desk that the room was never cleaned. His response was "well unfortunately a lot of the staff don't understand English. We'd be happy to refund you the tip you gave her. Sorry about that, I will let the Head of Housekeeping know." End of story.

    I inquired, don't they work off of a list and check off the rooms that had been cleaned? And shouldn't it have been obvious that our room was never cleaned? He said yes they have  a list, and that we should have called (at 2:00 a.m.) to have it cleaned b/c they have 24 hr. housekeeping staff.

    Weird and unacceptable. What is so great about Hilton Hotels?

    I would not stay here again.

    The historic Seelbach Hotel is a great place to admire the elegance of historic grand hotels of yesteryear.

    Our room was standard Hilton fare with a nice view of the neighboring high-rises. Great breakfast buffet, albeit a little pricey.

    Here's some history of the Seelbach Hotel:

    "The Seelbach Hilton is equal parts historical landmark and architectural masterpiece. It began as the dream of two Bavarian brothers -- Otto and Louis Seelbach -- in 1869 when Louis came to Louisville to learn the hotel business. In 1903, after several years of running restaurants and gentleman's clubs, the brothers began construction of a new hotel at the corner of 4th and Walnut Street (now Muhammad Ali), creating a lavish, turn-of-the-century Beaux Arts Baroque hotel. Sparing no expense, they imported marbles from all over the world, bronzes from France, hardwoods from the West Indies and Europe, linens from Ireland, and valuable Turkish and Persian Rugs.

    Billed as "the only fireproof hotel in the city," the new Seelbach opened in May of 1905 by offering a 5-hour public inspection and drawing an incredible 25,000 visitors. The hotel was so popular, the Seelbach brothers began a 154-room addition in the fall of that same year.

    In 1907, the expansion was completed and included the famous Bavarian-style Rathskeller, decorated with rare Rookwood Pottery. Today the Rathskeller remains the only surviving ensemble of its kind.

    Because of its lavish elegance, The Seelbach attracted celebrities of all kinds. Al Capone played blackjack here, never far from a series of secret passageways where he could make an escape if necessary. F. Scott Fitzgerald sipped brandy and smoked cigars here, once banned from the hotel after having "one too many." The Hollywood classic, "The Hustler," starring Jackie Gleason and Paul Newman features scenes shot in the old Seelbach billiard room (now The Oakroom, the hotel's 5-diamond restaurant)."

    Just a quick note. I travel pretty much every week for work and I am Diamond with Hilton. I stayed here with my wife last friday night on our way to Makers Mark distillery. We enjoyed our night there completely. The check-in experience was great; he was quick , thorough and very personable. A great combination!

    The room we were in was gorgeous. The hotel has done a great job of keeping the history of the original hotel but having modern conveniences. The room door had the original mail box and the closet had the glass cabinet that looked original. It was just a pleasant surprise in the era of keeping the original exterior but gutting the the interior of buildings.

    The location is great for staying in Louisville. You really are in the middle of downtown.

    Anyone who is a Hilton Honors member (ie. business travelers) should stay here when visiting Louisville.  Don't even both with the Hampton Inn a few blocks away.  The Seelbach is a historic property that's been well maintained.  Don't try to compare it to ultra-modern Hilton properties - think classic and retro, with a splash of southern charm.

    The rooms and suites are spacious with high ceilings and large windows on every floor.  Decor is simple - bordering on drab, especially the sofas and chairs - but the beds are comfortable and TVs are modern.  The gym is on the mezzanine level behind the small elevators and has a good selection of modern equipment, all decked out with TVs.  Bathrooms are well-stocked and not cramped.

    On property dining options should not be scoffed at!
    - Otto's Cafe does a good breakfast and better lunch, especially on Tuesday; fried chicken plate.  Prices are very reasonable and not inflated hotel fares.
    - The Seelbach bar is classy and historic; a great place to grab drinks with friends or co-workers away from the neon and noise of 4th Street Live.
    - I've never eaten in the Oakroom, however the Oakroom bar has the best selection of bourbon on site.  Knowledge local bartenders will give you a lesson on all things bourbon.

    Overall the Seelbach staff is excellent and I've never had an issue with any of the employees.  I recommend that you call ahead a couple of hours (well before you land at SDF) if you need a lift from the airport to the hotel.  Shuttle departs the SDF terminal at :15 and :45 after, but during the morning and early evening it can get bogged down by traffic on I-65.  Keep that in mind.

    The nostalgic factor makes the place more than it really is.  Something about a resident ghost and a bar and escape routes that Capone used to take advantage of makes it feel more important than it really is.  

    The focal point of this place is the foyer with it's sweeping staircase.  It's pretty cool.  But the rooms are small... and mine was an interior room so I just faced a wall of other rooms.

    Terrible, terrible and more terrible.  For just over $ 300.00 for one night this is what I received.
    - Getting laughed at because I asked if there was a place to get a good bottle of Bourbon for a gift
    - No heat
    - Tiny room
    - No service
    - No late check out even though I was a presenter at conference at the hotel

    Never again

    I love this hotel.  It's beautiful and the staff was really great.  The breakfast was good.  I think it's much better at the Hilton Tyson's Corner in VA which is my benchmark or I would have given this property 5 stars.  The concierge lounge was just ok as well.  This is all really nit picking as this is an historic and fabulous place to stay if you are ever in Louisville.

    This is a beautiful property, rich with history and atmosphere. I wanted to move in once I saw the gorgeous suite they gave us for our stay. The concierge lounge was nice, the staff helpful and friendly, and the resident ghost gave us no trouble at all. Make sure to check out the little room off of the Oak Room restaurant on the mezzanine level, where Al Capone played cards and made his getaways through the secret passageway. If you like ghost stories make sure to talk to John, a 30 year veteran of the hotel, who has also written a book about the woman who died here and still roams the halls. Fun stuff!

    Have a much greater appreciation of the hotel now that I have had the ghost tour. Ask for it, it's amazing!

    The shuttle service is great because you can ask for rides to places other than the airport. For example, we got a ride to Mayan Cafe which saved us a huge walk.

    The concierge lounge is cool as well, and the staff is very helpful and accommodating.

    I still would rather have a large bathroom with counter space (definitely not for girls like me who travel with tons of toiletries), but it's a nice stay.

    If you haven't had a chance to stay here, do so. This is Louisville's Palmer House or Waldorf-Astoria. It's beautiful inside. The history and the decor are truly amazing to see. They don't make them like this anymore.

    Your view varies. Some of them face out towards the city. Others face inward. If you want the sunlight to be more subdued and don't care about the view, go for the inside room. If you want a view, go for the outside.

    Here's a tip: Park first. If you're like me and don't need in-and-out privileges, it can be cheaper to just pay when you leave. As of now, it's $14 for 12 hours at the gate. If you put it on your room, it's $21.

    So why 4 stars instead of 5? Why do I recommend this if you haven't stayed here but not every time? It's a little pricier than the other options once you factor in the parking. Owing to the age, the rooms are smaller but they are well decorated. It's a great hotel but it's not completely competitive with other offers even within the Hilton family.

    Stayed at the Seelbach this past weekend.  Fantastic historical hotel.  Staff was exceptional.  My only word of caution... We used the valet service for our stay.  Dropped off Friday morning.  Saturday called to have car brought down and the low tire pressure light was on.  We didn't drop it off like that.  8lbs low pressure. We filled while out.  Checked out Sunday and luckily got home before we had a flat tire.  There was also another vehicle parked at Valet Sunday morning,  that had a completely flat tire.  Just saying with the construction across the street no one is safe from a screw in their tire.  Ours wasn't fixable,  needed to buy a new tire.

    With all of the history and uniqueness, what really set this place apart is the customer service! Second to none - every request (from a mini fridge being brought up to the room to a 4 a.m. pizza delivery) was handled with a gracious smile. Early and late check-in requests were honored, and the staff even dropped off some complimentary deserts. You get what you pay for - the Seelbach is more expensive than other hotels, but not by much. The extra $20/night we spent over the standard chains down the street was beyond worth it for the experience.

    The Seelbach is in a great location for exploring Louisville. Stayed here on a girls' weekend trip to the Forecastle music festival and this hotel is now in my top 5 of all time. The rooms were on the small side and offered nice furnishings, a large bathroom, and the most glorious pillows I've ever slept on in a hotel room. Historic touches like the wooden doors with a box to leave your dry cleaning out and the original post office boxes are cute details. The lobby and Seelbach bar are gorgeous. Go downstairs to the Rathskeller and take pictures - and do so on the staircase as well!

    The only downsides were:
    Paid WiFi (this is 2014 so I just think that's tacky)
    The room could have used a second mirror

    This historic hotel has a great history.  Although the lobby is not as elegant as some historic hotels, it is still gorgeous with its painted murals of old Kentucky scenes.  We learned that in the 1960s the murals were covered up in an effort to modernize the look of the hotel and rediscovered when the hotel was renovated.  If you go, if even for a drink in the Old Seelbach Bar, don't miss the Rathskeller on the lower level.  When it was built in the early 1900s, it was decorated completely with Rookwood Pottery (from Cincinnati)--floors, walls, ceiling--everything.  It appears it is only used for private parties now.  Like many historic hotels, the guest rooms are small.  Elevators are quite tight here as well.

    Stayed here for 1 night during a recent trip to Kentucky/Tennessee.  A colleague booked us here and I'm glad he did.  Some highlights of my brief stay:

    + The bar at the hotel has awesome Beer on tap, served in frozen glasses, yum!

    + The hotel has an older "historical" feel to it...I don't know the history of the hotel, but it gave me the same historical feeling that I get when I'm at Wrigley Field.
    yelp.com/biz_photos/0E_Y…
    + Rooms were well appointed and beds were super comfortable.
    yelp.com/biz_photos/0E_Y…
    + Every employee, from the valet guy to the front desk, was extremely helpful and friendly.

    Overall, it was an awesome stay despite being so brief.  If I return to Louisville, this place will be on my list.

    Return Factor - 90%

    My husband took me here as a birthday surprise and it was FANTASTIC!! It's old and beautiful and sophisticated and opulent and classy! They treat you so well there and are so warm. We had drinks at the Old Seelbach Bar, they were delicious, cold and fairly priced. I also love the history of the hotel, so many fun facts! We've decided to make it a tradition and I can't wait to go back next year and for many more to come!

    I like this hotel, but it has its shortcomings. I think it's riding on its historic charm, great location, and the like. I think customer service is a little lacking though. I showed up at 2 in the morning, and was notified that I was being walked to the Hyatt. Annoying at that time of night. They were nice about it , and so was I.

    Then, the next day, I had to check out of the Hyatt by noon, and check into the Hilton. My room wasn't ready. Annoying, but I was nice about it. I checked my bags with the bellman, and went to Churchill Downs to bet on the ponies. When I returned, they had upgraded me to a queen junior suite. Nice!

    My bill was slipped under my door on the morning of my checkout. My room rate was double what my company had negotiated. Unacceptable. They fixed it, but the whole experience was a pain. Good property, just failed me a number of times on this visit.

    We stayed at two different Hiltons while honeymooning and this one was by far the worst! The room was old and stunk like a old ashtray. We walked in and thought the person who stayed before us must have been smoking in the room and after two full days it still stunk! Not that I'm looking for free goodies but no one even acknowledged it was our honeymoon and then charged us $15 for a hotel guest(me his wife!) we had to pay for wifi which should just be standard or built into the rate. Overall we are really disappointed with the room and lack of service. Location is the only good part about this place.

    I disliked this hotel for many reasons.

    1. Parking... if you do not valet park, call ahead and get directions to their secret garage.  Oh, it's $22 per night to park in the secret garage too.  Was the garage easy to find? No.

    2.  8th Floor room 681 was my room.  You can hear everything coming down the hall way.  The door, while it looks cool, allows all conversations and housekeeping to echo right into the room.  

    3.  I've had roomier showers in an RV camping.

    4.  $149 +tax, $22 for parking and I would have had to pay for WiFi.  No.  This place is not worth it whatsoever.

    Once you get pasted the complaints, the bed was comfortable, the shower had great pressure and the AC unit worked well.

    Is this worth $149 per night.  No!

    Stayed here this past Saturday night. Very convenient to fourth st live and good location. Half of Louisville is under construction though not there fault, husband is hilton diamond and when we checked in we were assigned a room without an upgrade. We called down and Katie offered to move us and meet us with the new keys. Seriously we needed to ask to be upgraded? Ok but new room was nice. Had  lounge closed so instead offered us a coupon each for a drink and the. One coupon for an appetizer to share. The lounge was closed since occupancy was low. We went to the Rathskeller to use the coupons. They allowed you to pay a charge to upgrade the liquor choice which my husband did for $3. The appetizer was six pieces of chicken wings or three each. The menu said regular price was $10. That's ridiculous. They were decent but smidgen undercooked and not worth the price if we paid for them. Breakfast was nice and coupons said continental but Armondo our server advised for all items and offered eggs fresh from the kitchen. We chose to have an omelet which was really good.
        The decor is very pretty. The staircase and lobby very grand. The rooms have strange layouts because older but a very nice place to be. I would stay again but maybe when hotel and area are busier. Still nice grand dame

    Stayed here the weekend of Forecastle Festival. Nightly rate for queen ~$300. This is not a $300/night hotel. This feels more like a $129/night hotel, and if you are lucky enough to get that rate you are likely to be happier than I was. Seems like the rates jump wildly -- a fellow festival-goer got a last minute $120/night deal. Boy do I feel like a chump!

    The common areas of the hotel are stupefyingly beautiful and the service is great. Do visit the Rathskeller in the basement. The rooms, however, left a lot to be desired. The quality of toilet paper and tissues equaled what you'd find at a truck stop. No mini fridge. Shower took 10 minutes to get warm. Wallpaper was worn and torn. Bathroom grout was black in areas from years of wear. Toilet ran and ran and ran when flushed and only excessive jiggling of the handle shut it up.

    Regarding useable bathroom space, there is ZERO counter space and NO hook to hang a toiletries bag. Initially, I didn't think this would be a problem because there's a small shelf above the toilet. But the shelf is full of hotel junk and not easily accessible in relation to electrical outlets. There is also no mirror near an outlet in the bedroom. Using a flat iron required placing the iron in the sink when I needed to put it down, and placing my brush and hairspray on the toilet lid. There is space between the sink and toilet for a table; it would be nice if the hotel provided one. It would also be awesome if they ponied up for some Charmin and Kleenex.

    Creepy and outdated are two words for this hotel. It's very small and the bathroom is awkward. Bad experience here my first time as there were a few maintenance issues that I didn't appreciate.

    I was put on the so called "haunted floor (8th)". Things like that do not worry me at all but I was a little shaken so I requested I be put on another floor.

    The front desk personnel were very nice but I would prefer not to stay at this hotel ever again. I'm a big fan of the hilton franchise but would gladly stay at the Marriott close by.

    This hotel is a one time thing but for the price tag, I prefer a hotel with up to date designs and furniture.

    Before the 21C hotel was created in Louisville, there were 2 grand hotels that were built in the early 20th century: The Brown, and The Seelbach.  Up until the last weekend, I had only stayed at The Brown.

    I was in Louisville for the weekend, and I had some Hilton points to burn.  Since the Seelbach is operated by yup, you guessed it- Hilton, I decided to give it a shot.  Opened in 1905, the Seelbach is a gem to the city of Louisville with a lot to offer.

    I drove, but I didn't feel like valet (which is on the 4th St entrance), I took the deck- be careful and keep an eye open, as the deck comes up quickly on your left (don't worry, if you miss it, you can go back around the block).  Look for pedestrians, as it is kind of narrow.

    There is a back entry to the hotel, with 2 automated doors.  You walk through some conference areas (or "salons"), and then approach the lobby.  The lobby is kind of small, but packs a punch.  Its dark woods, pretty carpentry, and marble fit it appropriately.

    Check in kind of took a bit, and it was weird, as the area is tight, so when you stand in line and people are sitting in the chairs, your junk gets up close and personal with random people.  Definitely cozy here, throughout (keep that in mind) the hotel.

    Apparently, there were 2 weddings at the hotel that evening.  They must have thought I was part of one of them, as they put me with one of the parties.  Hmm..  However, with my Gold Status, I got free club access, which came in handy for pregaming.

    Out of 10 floors, I was on the 4th, in 424.  It was one of the larger standard rooms, but it still had that cozy feel.  The appointments were old school, and it was nice it had an air purifier in the room (not sure if it was a PURE allergy room or not).  When I went to the restroom- it was nice- but honestly- I have seen more room in a porter potty!  You could literally shave and take a crap at the same time- maybe their intention was the invention of multi-tasking?

    The water pressure in the shower was alright, and took a minute to warm up, but be careful, because when it gets hot, it rips!  Also, there are "oh-shit!" bars in the shower for a reason- if you are using the house soap, USE THE BAR when washing your feet- it gets slippery!!!  

    When I ventured up to the club level to pregame, I took the elevator to the 7th floor (key card req).  There was not a sign to the club, so I just walked the whole floor (I didn't look like a creepster, at all!) until the path dead ended into it.  It was small and filled with a bunch of dudes, but I was just there to get some booze.  They had beer, a small selection of liquor, some snacks, sodas, and juices.  It was relaxing.  They also serve breakfast in the morning there, but I forgot to get it.

    When I came back to the hotel later that evening, I decided to get some room service (which is 24 hours).  I ordered a cobb salad and a turkey club- noticed how I ordered a cobb?  When the gentleman came, he had brought me a turkey club and a caesar salad.   I wanted something different that night, but they must have known of my munchies and my love for caesars.  But still, they got it wrong!

    I slept well that evening- that bed was extremely comfortable.  It was nice, after a long week.  Room service kept knocking on my door at the ass crack of dawn (should have put up the thing on the doorknob)- keeping me awake.  I could have used the extra hour or 2 of sleep.

    I went downstairs to the giftshop, and bought some goodies.  This place is definitely unique in many ways, and have suites here that you will not find anywhere else- be sure to ask about them!  Also, in the basement, they have the Rathskeller- the only surviving room made of pottery and leather in the world!  Be sure to check that out.  However, if you need your space, this place is probably not for you...

    Being from Louisville, I get the whole Seelbach nostalgia thing. It is nice. The front desk staff however is NOT. First, they need more staff. This is not a boutique hotel in the French Quarter with 20 rooms where you can get away with one snarky/evil little troll who thinks she is the Queen of Everything including appointing herself your Time Master. While she was busy flirting with the married man (Hellooo honey, look at the ring finger! Notice anything? Of course not because you are different and morals must not apply to you!) I was left standing and waiting for attention. After several minutes (and I am a very patient person normally. I mean really, we aren't standing in bread lines in this country people so be grateful and try to relax and wait. At least that is USUALLY my motto!) I finally spoke up and asked for her to pass me something. She said in a very nasty tone that she would be with me in just one moment. Of course that was several more minutes. I asked her what took her about 15 seconds to complete and walked away. I know I totally put her out but hey, I thought she could take a moment to be a helpful employee of her company. So that is my rant on the nasty girl at the front desk. As far as the room is concerned, it is a postage stamp and if you stay on the second floor good luck figuring out where you are going. Even the bell-hop was confused. (That part was actually comical and made me chuckle ;) ) Way too small to pay $179 + taxes and fees for a night. It is kind of convenient but you are by the tourist draw of 4th Street Live. Go check out NuLu, it is way cooler with better food and drink.

    This would never be my first choice of hotel in Louisville.

    I was in town for a conference at another hotel, but stayed here.  So, I did not get to eat at the Seelbach or drink in the bar.

    This is an interesting historic hotel, with all of the cool stuff and all of the baggage that comes with that type of place.  Everything is old, but in good condition.  It is very interesting to look at, and I like the old time feel.

    The elevators are small, and fact many of the doors are small.  A lot of the fixtures are old, but functional.

    My room was modern enough, and a decent size.  The bathroom was quite modern, although there was virtually no bathroom counter space.  Even sitting on the toilet is a bit cramped between the sink and the wall...

    The bed was comfortable, the A/C worked very well, and everything was quiet.

    All in all, I had a pleasant stay.  The location is great -- just steps from the very popular "Fourth Street Live" area.  The hotel even offers a free shuttle to and from the airport, which is a nice touch.

    I had a great stay and would definitely return.

    Sure, the Seelbach Hotel was something special in its heyday... 50 years ago. Now  it's just a dated, overpriced hotel that is living off its storied past.

    If you opt to self-park ($18 overnight), the garage entrace is on Muhammad Ali Blvd. DON'T blink or you'll miss it. DON'T follow the signs for "Rear Hotel Entrance" up to the 6th level or you'll find out the hard way it was for nothing. Park on the lower level and take the elevator to the ground floor. Entrance to the hotel is across the alley way.

    The lobby is nice -- ample gathering space and the front desk agents are friendly and helpful. There's the renowned Seelbach Bar and the Oak Room, great options when you consider what other hotels have to offer. I had a room on the 9th floor and MAN, THIS ROOM HAS SEEN BETTER DAYS. There are chips and dings all over the doors and walls, dripping shower, yellow stains on the tub, period stain on the desk chair.... should I keep going? The bathroom is TINNNNNYYY. I'm no KG, but I'm pretty sure my 5'4" wingspan can touch the door and tub at the same time.

    The saving grace of this hotel is the SOLE FACT that it is across the street from 4th Street and a handy CVS for those little items that you left at home.

    This hotel is AMAZING. If you love a historical feel, and a good ghost story, along with BEAUTIFUL architecture.... then this place is for you.

    From the moment we pulled up, i knew i'd love this place. It's just beautiful!  Both the Valet and Bell Hop guys were ready and waiting the minute we pulled up to the front! The down-side, valet was super expensive ($27). I'm from Chicago, and that's about what they charge downtown - I certainly don't expect that in Louisville, KY.

    My mouth hit the floor when I walked into the Lobby. The old-world charm,and grandeur of it!!

    The Room: I was kinda heebed out walking barefoot, the carpet felt a little greasy. But the room itself was nice enough. Somewhat basic, but nice amenities. The bathroom was pretty, beautiful sink and large tub, although hardly any counter-space. The beds, like most Hilton properties, was amazing. Super comfy- and the linens were soft. Very nice.  Since the person I was staying with was an Honors member, we stayed on the 8th floor, and were able to partake in the morning breakfast, which was nice.

    For the price you pay, each room should definitely have it's own mini-fridge. Hands-down. Quite an annoyance, as it's become the standard across most hotels.

    What really made the stay here lovely was the service. Every single person we interacted with was super-friendly and very helpful. They really score an A++ on the Customer Service. From the valet, to the bell-hop, to the front-desk folks, etc etc.. everyone was sooo nice!!

    Definitely take some time to explore the hotel, and ask the front-desk for the little history-packet they have. Definitely check out the Oak Room, The Bar, and The Rathskeller.  Part of the Great Gatsby was written here, Al Capone used to hang here, a woman killed herself here in the 30's (?) and is now "claimed" to occasionally "visit". SO much history - it's awesome!!

    Now, the individual rooms may not be as super-fancy as some Hilton's, but what it lacks in that area (minorly) it makes up for in history and architecture and ambiance. I would totally stay here over a typical "fancy" hotel any day. It just made my heart happy. I guess you could say i was totally geekin'-out over this place.

    What a beautiful historic hotel!

    Check in: easy,  breezy
    Room: quaint, clean, and comfortable. Reminds me of the Drake hotel of Chicago sans gold trims and accents. I stayed on the concierge floor, so the room also came with a couple of plush robes and 24-hr access to the business center on the floor and refreshments refrigerator stocked with water and soda.
    I will definitely be going back!

    I can see why this hotel is so pricey to stay in! This is by far THE fanciest hotel I've ever stayed in!

    Despite living near Louisville, I opted to stay at the Seelbach on March 4th this year before snowmaggedon hit. I work at Kosair Children's Hospital (KCH) and nurses don't get snowdays. Instead of trying to commute to work, I decided to "rough it" at the Hilton instead!

    I parked in front of the building and was greeted by a valet. For an additional $4/night the valet parked my car for me. I came inside, got a room key and went up to my room. This place is NICE on the inside! I believe this hotel had to be used in the most recent Gatsby movie because the decor seemed familiar. Anyways, once I made it up to my room (I got the double beds room because it's cheaper) I made a bee line for the tolietries.

    I had to call the front desk for more tolietries because they're all Peter Thomas Roth brand (hello! ) so I just had to have more!!  After that I went to work out in their fitness facility, which is much nicer than any gym I've been to in a hotel! They had several cardio machines, some free weights, a few weight machines, some yoga mats... I mean seriously I doing to pay money to be a gym member there! so I worked up a good sweat, took a nice long hot shower and ordered some room service.

    I regret not taking a photo of the food or see it with room service because it was so delicious! I ordered a Gatsby burger with no bun add bacon and cheese, with sweet potato fries, a glass of wine, a Side of cauliflower gratin, and some chocolate gelato for desert. The cauliflower gratin was so creamy, Rich, and the cauliflower itself was just the perfect amount of crunchy to it! The portion was gigantic! I really could've made a meal out of it to be honest, but since I just worked out I was ravenous. The burger was cooked perfectly to how I ordered it, the sweet potato fries were light and crisp. I loved the little Heinz glass bottles of ketchup and mayonnaise that came with my meal too! So cute! The chocolate gelato was easily the best chocolate gelato I've ever eaten! It was super creamy, had big chunks of dark chocolate inside, and the portion was way too much, but obviously I ate it all  The glass of white Zinfandel was a perfect touch with my bubble bath but I enjoyed it with my Peter Thomas Roth bath products.

    Of course the most important part of staying at a hotel is the sleep you get. I didn't hear anything going on in the hallways, so they must do a pretty good job of insulating the walls. The pillows and bedding are so comfortable, therefore, I am looking into getting some pillows from the Hilton website. I believe these pillows are about $80 a piece. A good night sleep to me is worth all the money in the world!

    When it came time to make the 1.5 mile commute to work the next day, the roads were covered in snow! Thankfully for me, the valet safely got my card to me and I was able to make it to work on time and in one piece. The next time I have to work at the hospital and there's an impending storm coming, I am definitely going to stay at the Seelbach again!
