About The Galt House Hotel 

In the early 1800s, the original Galt House was a residence owned by Dr. W.C. Galt on Louisville’s waterfront. In 1835, a 60-room hotel was opened as the Galt House Hotel across the street from the residence. Over half a century later, in 1972, Galt House Hotel was reestablished as part of Louisville’s Riverfront Urban Renewal Project and continued to expand with the creation of the East Tower in 1984. The hotel was renovated between 2019 and 2022 and is located in the heart of downtown, just minutes from many Louisville attractions, including the KFC Yum! Center, Fourth Street Live!, Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory, Actors Theatre, the Muhammad Ali Center, and Whiskey and Museum Rows — some of which are connected to the Galt House Hotel by pedway.  In addition to professional sessions and workshops, luncheons and the 2023 Expo Hall, your stay at the Galt House will be accompanied by views of the Ohio River, and four bars and restaurants including Walker’s Exchange, a Kentucky Brasserie; Swizzle Dinner & Drinks, a social experience with swirling rooms, perched 25 floors above Louisville; and two original founding members of the Urban Bourbon Trail, Jockey Silks Bourbon Bar and Down One Bourbon Bar. 


The Conservatory at The Galt House Hotel connects the two towers.

SEMC2023 Conference sessions will also be held at The Galt House Hotel
