Where to stay in Louisville
There are a lot of great places to stay in Louisville, but if you’re looking for an iconic hotel we’d have to first recommend the Galt House. Some other incredible hotels are the Seelbach Hotel, the Brown Hotel and 21C Hotel. All of these hotels are incredibly unique to Louisville. The Seelbach and the Brown are also known to be haunted! So, that’s a plus for those looking for something spooky. If you aren’t afraid to stay a little outside the city and you’re looking for a haunted location to stay, the Story Inn in Story, Indiana is known for the Blue Lady Room which is also worth checking out! Just know, it is a bit of drive from the Ville.
Outside that, there are a number of great hotels that aren’t necessarily unique, but they are nice places to stay. We’d recommend finding a location near the locations of interest that you plan to visit.
Not just a Halloween City
As said before, Louisville is home to more than 2,500 restaurants which gives you an incredible variety of food to select from. There are a number of museums in town including the Louisville Science Museum, the Louisville Slugger Museum, Muhammad Ali Museum, the Frazier History Museum, the Museum of Art and Craft, and a number of art museums including the Speed Art Museum.
