History

Since its debut in 2006, the 21c Museum Hotel Louisville has emerged in prominence as the flagship establishment for the illustrious 21c Museum Hotels. Founded from the visionary genius of Laura Lee Brown and Steve Wilson, the company has striven to transform hotels into stand-alone cultural attractions with art at their core. Beginning with the Hotel Louisville, these wonderful venues possess their own fantastic contemporary art galleries. The 21c Museum Hotel Louisville has especially drawn praise for its art-laden rooms, including the Asleep in the Cyclone—a customary suite that doubles as an original piece of avant-garde artwork.

Well before the 21c Museum Hotel Louisville came into existence, the location was once an essential component of the city’s historic riverside port throughout the nineteenth century. Contemporary developers actually constructed the modern edifice from five separate warehouses that sheltered a wealth of tobacco and bourbon products as they made their way south down the Ohio River. One of the structures even served as the lucrative Falls City Tobacco Bank for several decades during the mid-1800s. These buildings saw thousands of barrels pass through their doors over the years, since Louisville functioned as a major thoroughfare connecting the American Midwest to the bustling Mississippi Delta. 21c Museum Hotels are honored to have these historically significant structures serve as the foundation for its prized inaugural hotel.

21c Museum Hotel Louisville by MGallery, a member of Historic Hotels of America since 2019, dates back to 1800's.
