Loved it- loved the wacky decor, loved the bath products, loved the view, the bar and restaurant....super proximity to other nice venues like the Yum center which was a safe, easy walk. Not inexpensive but I felt that you got what you paid for.

Loved this hotel. So unique with the art and rooms are wonderful. Bar is really cool and Proof On Main is one of the best restaurants that I have gotten to experience. Staff is great. Hotel is casual but elegant.

I came for a business trip and felt like I was on vacation! The hospitality was superb. Convenient from the airport bus/trolley; free bikes to see the city; terrific bar next door; relaxing saunas. I'm definitely coming back and recommending all my friends to visit.

I recently stayed at 21C for a romantic get away and dinner at Proof. Great experience, one that I will do again. 21C is a beautiful hotel and the food at Proof was excellent. A must for couples in love, or to rekindle that loving spirit.

Very cool experience. The art is amazing and to have it right there in the hotel made this a unique experience. Close to nice attractions (river, museums, more art) and just far enough away from the two party areas (5-10 minute walk to 4th Street, 10 minute cab ride to Bardstown Road) to keep it classy. Couple of missed items...
