Seelbach Hilton

The Seelbach is a vestige of Grand Ol' Louisville. With marble details throughout, vaulted ceilings and guest rooms that feature four-post beds, "Old-World Grandeur" is an understatement. It's also consistently rated as one of the best historic hotels in Louisville. It has to be since this is the place where foreign dignitaries as well as the President stays. Most notably however, the hotel staff as well as some guests have said that there is a mysterious "Lady in Blue" that haunts the floors. Legend has it that one Patricia Wilson was to meet her husband at the hotel, however he was killed in an accident and she allegedly threw herself from a stairwell. A bit morbid, but it doesn't stop ghost-hunters as well as exigent guests from staying in this French Renaissance inspired hotel. It's also conveniently located next to plenty of attractions like Fourth Street Live, Maker's Mark Bourbon House & Lounge and the Louisville Palace Theatre.

DuPont Mansion Bed & Breakfast

The DuPont Mansion is located in Old Louisville, just minutes from Churchill Downs and across the street from Central Park (initially known as Dupont Square). The family name is the same of those famous chemical magnates in Delaware and in fact it was two brothers from this clan who constructed this beautiful Italianate Renaissance building in 1879. However, the family only stayed here more or less for 25 years when the property changed hands. It remained as a private estate until the end of the 20th-Century, when the mansion was completely refurbished into a B&B. Today it has modern essentials such as climate-control temperature and Internet access, yet it stays true to its Victorian roots with touches like chandeliers and authentic furnishings from the late 19th century.
