    The Brown Hotel

    #2 in Best Hotels in Downtown Louisville, Louisville
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 2306 reviewsTripAdvisor (2306)
    During Derby seasons of yore, celebrities like Elizabeth Taylor, Joan Crawford and Eva Marie Saint would stay at this gorgeous 293-room Louisville landmark. There's something about the ornate lobby and elegant rooms and suites that feel glamorous and Hollywood-like. Accommodations boast beds with pillow-top mattresses, marble bathrooms, flat-screen TVs and complimentary Wi-Fi access. Some guests say they are showing a little wear and tear though. Recent visitors highlight the customer service, elegant rooms and the on-site dining as reasons to stay here. Plus, if you're a fan of traditions, you'll have to sample the legendary Hot Brown sandwich served at the hotel's English Grill restaurant.

    #3 in Best Hotels in Downtown Louisville, Louisville
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 1386 reviewsTripAdvisor (1386)
    This downtown hotel is a no-fuss Marriott, but visitors praise it for acing the basics. Clean rooms, a friendly and accommodating staff and a convenient downtown location on West Jefferson Street near the Kentucky International Convention Center are the main perks. You could also attend a meeting inside the hotel, as this Marriott boasts 38,000 square feet of meeting facilities and breakout rooms. If you're looking for a bit of exercise, break a sweat in the fitness center or swim some laps in the indoor pool. Another plus: From here you can walk to sites like the Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory and the Frazier History Museum. Keep in mind, this hotel is currently undergoing renovations, and recent guests said that the construction can be loud. If you're a Marriott Bonvoy member, you can accrue or redeem points by choosing to stay here.

    The Seelbach Hilton Louisville
    Louisville, KY
    0.2 miles to city center
    #4 in Best Hotels in Downtown Louisville, Louisville
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 2045 reviewsTripAdvisor (2045)
    Bibliophiles might remember that Louisville's Seelbach hotel is where Tom and Daisy Buchanan tied the knot in "The Great Gatsby." And those of you more grounded in reality might like to know that this famous hotel has hosted the likes of presidents Franklin D. Roosevelt and John F. Kennedy, and gangsters Lucky Luciano and Al Capone. Trivia aside, this stately site fares well with River City lodgers. They particularly delight in the rooms' high ceilings and dark wood furniture. Some guests were disappointed that you have to pay for in-room internet access, though. As far as on-site amenities go, the Seelbach Hilton has a fitness center, meeting space and a few bars and restaurants. Keep in mind that this is one of the most popular hotels come Derby time (it's a short 4 miles from Churchill Downs) so if you're interested in booking, begin your vacation planning at least three months in advance of the big race. Hilton Honors members can earn or redeem point perks by staying here.

Rooms offer up creature comforts, including 65-inch flat-screen TVs, complimentary in-room Wi-Fi access and signature Hyatt Grand Beds. While travelers were pleased with the hotel's perks, some guests did complain of noise. A few reviewers cited thin walls while others attributed the noise to occupants merely enjoying the hotel's lively location. Because this outpost is within the Hyatt family, rewards program members can earn or use points for choosing to stay here.
