My wife and I took an overnight trip down to Louisville on Black Friday for the kick-off of the holiday light-up. Some reviewers have complained about the parking charge, but it's little enough compared to cities like Chicago or New York. We dropped of the car with valets and picked it up when we left, easy to do with hotel within walking distance of most of Louisville's attractions (the riverfront, 4th Street Live, Slugger, Ali, Frazier, the Brown, even old Louisville, if you're up to it). Despite the holiday weekend, every member of staff we encountered was positive, outgoing and helpful (I've stayed places on holidays before with a full dose of I'd-rather-be-home attitude). The room was spacious and comfortable, and clean. We didn't use either restaurant on premises, but we did try out the jacuzzi, which was nearly as large as the pool. Another great convenience is the hotels connection to the Skylink network - several downtown buildings connected by skyways, including Fourth Street Live, a real plus as the mercury falls.
