I'm planning to visit downtown Louisville in the near future, and am wondering which hotel is considered the best. I've been *in* the Galt House, the Brown, and the Seelbach a number of times, but never to stay overnight. Which one would you recommend?

21c is undoubtedly the coolest, most hip hotel downtown. it was voted number one hotel in america last year by some publication that i can't recall. kinda pricey, but rates include the art gallery that is just bad a**.
the place is new school contemporary as opposed to the other hotels you mentioned.

It all depends on what you're looking for. The 21c as mentioned above is a great hotel in some regards but depending on your point is you you may not like it. The Seelbach and the Brown are both beautifully restored classic hotels and definitely cater to a different crowd. There's also a very nice Marriott downtown for that type of crowd.

I tend to prefer the old, stately hotels more than the ultra-modern, so I'm seriously considering the Seelbach and the Brown. How about the Galt House, though? I haven't been in it for about 8-9 years; how is it now?

The Galt House certainly isn't in the same class as the other two. The only thing it has is its location on the waterfront.

Yeah but it is pretty nice since it was fully renovated 3 years ago.
Even though 21C is ultra modern, it is housed in buildings that are actually more historic than the Seelbach or the Brown. It is modern with tons of historic flavor, exposed old brick etc. It was rated number one hotel in the WORLD by conde naste traveler. You really cannot miss it.

Should you prefer the old hotels, the Seelbach wins.
