Most of the 210 guestrooms in this smoke-free hotel include 32-inch flat-panel LCD high-definition TVs with premium cable channels, refrigerators, microwaves, coffeemakers, and free Wi-Fi. A handful of larger executive rooms also offer whirlpool tubs, while you can reserve a suite if you still need more room.
The hotel’s Great American Grill restaurant serves a breakfast buffet as well as table service for dinner. You can also grab ready-to-cook meals from the 24-hour Pavilion Pantry convenience store if you want to heat up something quick in your room. Hotel amenities include a heated indoor pool, a fitness center, and a coin-operated laundry room. Parking is free, and the hotel’s complimentary airport shuttle runs day and night.
Located close to the airport but less than a ten-minute drive from downtown, Louisville’s Hilton Garden Inn is very close to Churchill Downs, the Kentucky Derby Museum, the zoo, and the brand new Bluegrass Boardwalk amusement park (opening in May 2013, where Six Flags used to be).

I have stayed in this hotel many times. I have never had a bad experience. The bed was comfortable and I got a great nights sleep. The people who work there were very friendly and helpful. My only negative comment, the breakfast wasn't very good.
Good location, room is nice but the pool is extremely small. It’s make for kids only. I had the room all the way at the end of the hallway. The hot water took over 10 mins to get to this room. So, if you want to take a hot shower, you have to run the water on full hot for 10 mins before hot water is available.
