    Got Bourbon? Got dogs?

    We had an amazing time at this hotel! It’s in a nice area and has an awesome bar! Abby took great care of us! The cooks that made our breakfast, did an outstanding job! They are always smiling here!

    Close to a great park

    Everyone was so kind to is and our dog! Love that a great park is only a block away. Also, always have a full jar of puppy treats right by the door!

    Nice location

    Room was nice and there was a park a half mile away or some grassy areas across the street down the block.

    Mediocre room

    The bed was just ok. Not the best mattress. Privacy is nonexistent. The shower is poorly designed. There was no way to avoid flooding the floor outside the shower. The bartender had no idea what wine was available and there was no wine list. I was very disappointed and will not be staying at another Aloft.

    Wonderful Stay!! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

    My puppy and I had an excellent visit and I cannot say enough good things about this Hotel. I’d especially like to Thank Jay-Lyn (sp) who was working the desk for how he went beyond expectations with kindness and courtesy towards us (and others as I observed). Our visit was the best and we will definitely be back each time we pass through Louisville from now on. Thank You!

    Great one-night stay

    Great, friendly one-night stay in Louisville. Staff was welcoming, room was everything we wanted and needed! I will advise that there is no valet or on-site parking, but there is a parking deck just across the street for $20/night. It was a bit cumbersome trying to get the dog and all our stuff from the garage to the hotel for check in. There’s no grass on property, but it’s a short (one-block) walk to a small park by the waterfront. There’s a small grassy area by the parking deck and a fast food place, a bit dodgy but no harm no foul. I would come back!

    Huge room; very dog friendly.

    Great hotel. We only stayed for a night to break up our drive between Chicago and Gatlinburg. Check in was quick. The room was HUGE. Plenty of room for our pups to stretch their legs after the long drive. Location is perfect. Hotel is very clean and staff is following COVID protocols.

    Happy we stayed here!

    We stayed at the Aloft downtown. It's a convenient spot to all the great things downtown has to offer although first impressions of the outside area weren't so great. Once inside we (and our puppy) were greeted warmly and everything was perfect. We found parking on the street and downloaded an app to pay meter saving the $28 come and go parking (although street parking is limited). There is a small park 1 block down the street for walks.

    There were no issues whatsoever with our dog and the hotel. Everything was sound. We all slept like babies. No stress.

    Great place

    Great location in downtown. Hotel staff were awesome and very helpful in letting us know were to get take out. Room clean had a corner unit on the 7th floor. Our fur baby loved looking out the windows at the traffic and pedestrians. Will go back once everything opens back up!!

    Great Location

    In the heart of Downtown Louisville within walking distance to several dog friendly restaurants and not to far to the riverfront.

    Great experience with 2 dogs

    Louisville was our stop on a road trip from Atlanta to Chicago. We had our two dogs with us along with our 15-month-old. It was a great hotel for us. We had a king room and there was enough room for the pack and play. They had a dog bed set out for Our pups on the built in bench, however they ended up sharing the bed with us... no surprise there, haha.

    Great Visit

    This hotel was so nice, not only dog friendly but people friendly. Staff were so helpful right from the moment we pulled in. (Parking is $28). No extra fee for the dog. She even got a goodie bag. We were able to leave her while we went to dinner. There are also pet friendly restaurants nearby if preferred. Located right on Whisky Row.

    Low quality for Aloft

    We were given a TERRIBLE room that was walled with the elevator, the air units, had a broken ac unit that kept me awake for two nights and had a ceiling that appeared to be caving in. This is a relatively new hotel. If you are bringing your pets, just know they give you the lowest quality for the highest price. The poop bag station had two bags and as we were checking out of the mostly empty hotel, one of our cavalier King Charles spaniels was barking and whining as he got anxious with us packing and taking stuff out of the tools to load the car. We were downstairs for all of 3 minutes when the housekeeper called the front desk to complain about the dog whining (it was 9:30 on a Friday am). It was uncalled for and she clearly saw us loading our car and packing. If you want a rude and inconsiderate staff, stay here. This is why air bnb is getting business! Because “pet friendly” isn’t.

    Awesome dog hotel

    We actually didn't stay at this hotel, but when we learned that our own hotel didn't let dogs into any of the common areas, we discovered this hotel after walking around downtown trying to figure out where we could eat breakfast with two Spaniel puppies. Super hip hotel, they love dogs, gave us treats, and said that we were more than welcome to bring the dogs inside the lobby to eat breakfast. Excellent hotel chain, the staff were all super friendly with our pups, and a lot of other dog owners were at the hotel, so we felt very welcome. This place really saved our trip, and we came back later for dinner and drinks and had a blast.
