Stay at a Louisville Bed and Breakfast Instead of a Hotel

The economy appears to be inching slowly into a recovery and business and leisure travelers alike are traveling again. And while people are still looking for value, they are also looking for a memorable experience. That’s why, more and more, travelers are choosing to stay at B&B’s because we offer quality, and value and we make MEMORIES!

Every Louisville Bed and Breakfast is UNIQUE – that’s because most of our B&B’s are in historic homes where the craftsmanship and quality of construction is so outstanding that they are still standing after over a hundred years. While we strive to preserve the historic integrity of these beautiful structures, we also know that our guests want modern conveniences. That’s why we have all renovated our B&B’s to offer private bathrooms for each guestroom (many with whirlpool tubs), central heat and air, WiFi, TVs and DVD players, and so on. Our B&B’s offer the finest of AMENITIES including luxury linens, soaps and shampoos, comfortable robes and, of course, the most comfortable beds that you’ll ever sleep in away from home! Since our Louisville B&B’s are individually owned and reflect the tastes of the owners, we are all different – no cookie-cutter hotel rooms here! Our Owner-Innkeepers genuinely LOVE their work so you can rest assured that your stay will be the very best!

Our Innkeepers are some of Louisville’s best TOUR GUIDES. We are fantastic resources of information on where to go, what to do, where to dine and what to experience in our wonderful city. Compare that to the average hotel concierge whom may or may not live around the hotel where they work and, therefore, may or may not have intimate knowledge of the area.

Hotels are now trying to be more like B&B’s by offering breakfast for their guests. The difference is that they are offering breakfast buffets of packaged foods for hundreds of guests while we are serving a FULL GOURMET BREAKFAST to a much, much smaller group of guests. Breakfasts at our B&B’s are an event! Our breakfasts are homemade each day and made especially for our guests on that particular day. We are also quite adept at working around dietary restrictions. Have you ever tried to order a lactose and wheat-free breakfast at a hotel buffet? It’s not a pretty sight!

Our B&Bs include many FREE amenities that the average hotel does not, including snacks, homemade desserts, complimentary wine, coffee and tea, cola and bottled water. We also offer DVD movies and games free to our guests as well as a variety of books, magazines and newspapers. Our guests are offered free WiFi, and business travelers can rest assured that their office needs are available at our B&B’s. Parking is always free at our B&B’s which is certainly not the case at area hotels where parking can be as much as $20 a day.

So, when you are planning your trip to LOUISVILLE, whether it’s for business or pleasure, consider staying at one of our Louisville Bed and Breakfasts. You have our PERSONAL guarantee that we will take excellent care of you!
