The Louisville center is approximately the area of KFC YUM Center and the area of Actors Theatre.

Louisville is home to a wide variety of cultural experiences, some of which are chalk-full of unique, old-world, southern charm while others markedly modern. Louisville's (and, indeed, Kentucky's) most well-know event is the world-famous Kentucky Derby, an event steeped in tradition (the Derby has been run continuously since 1875) and, in some ways, serves as a reminder of America's colonial past. The Derby is preceded by a two-week festival, which begins with the largest annual fireworks display in America, Thunder Over Louisville. Contrast the old-world culture of the Derby with Abbey Road on the River, the world's largest annual Beatles festival, held on the banks of the Ohio River in downtown Louisville. Beyond the special events that crop up throughout the year, the metro area offers up a vibrant scene (food, music, art, etc.) that can be enjoyed by visitors every day of the year. The next time you're in the mood to spend some time in an eclectic environment lovingly wrapped up in southern hospitality, hop a flight to Louisville. You won't be disappointed.

Luxury Hotel Options in Louisville

4 Star Average Prices: $158.60

Louisville is a first-class city (one of two in Kentucky) that can cater to those who lead the most lavish of lifestyles. This is especially true amongst the city's accommodation offerings. Those travelers who demand only the very best (as well as those who've saved up for a bit of a splurge) will be absolutely satisfied with options such as 21c Museum Hotel Louisville – a luxurious boutique hotel and contemporary art museum, with an award-winning restaurant on site; Aloft Louisville Downtown – an über-modern hotel in historic Whiskey Row; and, for those who prefer high-end international chains with great rewards programs, the Louisville Marriott East.

Cheaper/Low Budget Options

3 Star Average Prices: $108.18

Fortunately, for those visitors of more modest means, Louisville offers up a range of budget friendly options. The Breckinridge Inn, located just east of downtown, offers budget travelers well-appointed rooms, with a swimming pool and hot tub, as well as an onsite dining club and dining options. Overall, this hotel provides a lot of bang for your buck. Other options include national/international chains such as Microtel, Comfort Inn and Best Western, all of which have locations in or near downtown Louisville. Unfortunately, for the backpackers among us, no hostels have setup shop in the city. However, this could soon change as demand for such an option in becoming increasingly visible.

Which Louisville hotels have real discounts?

Many hotels throughout the Louisville metro area participate in the discount programs that savvy travelers frequently use. The AAA discount is the most widely accepted program in the city, with the vast majority of the national and international chains offering discounts for AAA members. Make sure to note/select the AAA discount when booking and bring your discount card with you – you'll need to present it upon checking in to secure the special rate. If you're an AAA member, look out for hotels like Four Points by Sheraton, Quality Inn, Super 8, Days Inn, Fairfield Inn, Clarion Inn and any of the Marriott hotels. For senior citizens (members of AARP, etc.) many of the Marriott hotels offer discounts. Best Western seems to be the place to go for advertised Military rates. However, it is a little known secret that many hotels will give military members a special discount if they are in uniform when checking in (just like airlines allow uniform military access to airport lounges and priority boarding, regardless of their ticket status). If you're traveling in a group, the chain hotels tend to have the best group rates, especially if traveling in the off-seasons (late autumn, winter – except Christmas – and early spring).

What options are near the airport?

For business travelers requiring accommodation near the airport, there are many options near Louisville International Airport. Nearly all of the large chains have an airport location, ranging from budget options like Super 8 and Howard Johnson to upper mid-range hotels such as Courtyard by Marriott and Crowne Plaza Louisville Airport. For business travelers who have a little time to kill, the metro area offers up a number of attractions that can be taken in within just a few hours. Take a stroll along the Belvedere Plaza – a public space along the Ohio River, with many dining options nearby. See a show at the Actors Theatre, one of America's premiere independent, non-profit acting troupes with an Tony award to its credit and an international reputation (1,500 performances in 15 countries since 1980). Finally, if you need a little more action in your life or would rather see a concert, head over to the KFC Yum Center, home to the University of Louisville's basketball teams and a regular US tour stop for major recording artists.

"Great People, and Don't Miss the Zipline!"
Score 5.0 / 5

We took a high school softball team on the MegaCavern Zipline experience. They all enjoyed it very much. It is a unique underground adventure that can not be duplicated anywhere else in the country. The group rate makes the experience more doable (at $59) we had three girls not do it because of the price. In 2013, we took a team through the Louisville Slugger tour and also enjoyed its unique quality. Overall, we have found Louisville's people to be extremely hospitable and gracious. We will be coming back for years to come.

, from 22-Apr-2014

Very nice downtown with some character and superb eateries and the river is lovely.
