Just in time for Derby season, a new hotel has
opened in Louisville, Kentucky. The 21C Museum and Hotel
is located in
downtown Louisville and offers 90 rooms including six suites. The rooms have high ceilings, flat-screen televisions,
450-thread-count sheets, iPods and original works of art from the owners'
$10 million collection
. The hotel also includes a 5,000-square-foot contemporary art museum and a fitness center as
well as a new restaurant, Proof on Main that serves American cuisine with a Tuscan flair. Room start at $199, but Derby
weekend is already all booked up. Given that many most of Louisville's luxury hotel options are more on the traditional
side, it's nice to see a touch of modern come to downtown.
