Exceptional 10.0
Great Stay
Great place to "get away" from the busyness of downtown. Quiet. Probably needs more staff. No coffee in my room but in main lobby which is a beautiful place to start your morning. Requested service for room and they didn't bring fresh towels. Neighborhood is a bit sketch but I was assured that it was perfectly safe. Overall I really like this place. You will too!

This hotel was such a LOVELY surprise and the service is unmatched. Small, boutique hotel with a lot of history and sexy rooms. I appreciate that children are not allowed here, I slept like a baby. I really hope I find myself in Louisville again so I can stay longer next time.

Business travelers beware
This hotel was awful on several fronts. The neighborhood was sketchy, and the “annex” is not connected to the main hotel. Instead, it’s down a dark alley way and requires a security escort. Customer service was extremely helpful but the hotel itself just isn’t up to par. After being moved from the annex to a room in the main hotel, I was disgusted to find an awful mold smell. It was so potent I wasn’t able to stay in the room. So I was unfortunately back to square one. Had every single hotel in the downtown area not been sold out I definitely would’ve left and gotten another room.

Beautifully Eclectic Hotel
The staff is terrific and very friendly. I felt very safe with the security at the hotel as the area is just outside of downtown in historic Louisville. Parking is very convenient and the rooms are simply gorgeous.

Staff was amazing. Set up was a little odd.

Poor 2.0
Would not recommend for the business traveler
Extremely disappointed. Rooms were very dark - no over head light and black walls. No dresser, no closet. Normal amenities were not in the room - no iron, no coffee maker, no bottled water. Walls were extremely thin I could hear everything from the room next door - their alarm, blowing their nose, zipping their suitcase. Staff was very polite, but not well trained and couldn’t help with simple questions. Area was not convenient to downtown.

Gorgeous Room
Don't be fooled by the neighborhood- it isn't as bad as it looks on the surface. The room was gorgeous, comfortable and clean. The style and atmosphere are really the attraction here. The windows were opaque and obscured by interior décor; likely because the neighborhood isn't particularly attractive to look at. During the daytime, you will be in perpetual twilight. Within a very short UBER/LYFT trip to whatever it is downtown you're interested in. Highly recommend

A second good stay
This was my second stay at Vu. Great location for both downtown and Fairgrounds. Area around the hotel is developing and they will have a restaurant shortly. Staff is friendly. Room 204 is small and comfortable. It could use more light. While they have a bar it was not staffed on my weeknights. Still was able to get a drink but it was an effort. Ended up having great conversation at the bar. Hotel decorations are stylish and well selected for the feel of the place. Quiet and peaceful. The place has the feel of a guest house as opposed to a hotel.
