21c Museum Hotel Louisville

This boutique hotel doubles as a contemporary art museum. Founders Laura Lee Brown and Steve Wilson wanted somewhere to store their growing art collection while helping revitalize downtown Louisville, so they opened a hotel with rotating public exhibitions. Housed in a 19th-century tobacco-and-bourbon warehouse, the hotel provides a unique space for modern installations like a giant gold replica of the Statue of David, which sits out front. If you don’t stay here, at least stop by for the exhibits. You really should book a room, however, as the service is excellent, the rooms beautiful, and the amenities everything you could need.

Hotels for Art Lovers

Art collectors Laura Lee Brown and Steve Wilson set out to revitalize their hometown of Louisville, Kentucky, by turning five abandoned warehouses into a 90-room hotel with a 9,000-square-foot exhibition space and a restaurant. Their second 21c Museum Hotel opened in Cincinnati in 2012, and their next, near the Crystal Bridges Museum in Bentonville, Arkansas, opens this spring.
