Kentucky Derby Hotels

Kentucky Derby Hotels and Extras

Hotel Accommodations:

Hotels charge a heavy premium around the derby so expect to spend between $500 to $1000 per night on your hotel room. Through our network of suppliers, we can assist you with booking a room at one of several hotels located around the Louisville area. It all depends on your budget and will range from a low of $500 for a room at one of the local Marriott properties to over $1000 per night for a room at the famous Gault Haus. If you are looking for anyplace to book my recommendation would be to check out the Trip Advisor website for a complete list of possible places to stay.

Most hotels offer shuttle service to and from the Churchill Downs and major attractions around town. So unless you plan on driving outside of Louiville, you can probably do without a rental car.
