Louisville is the place to be. The number of boutique hotel developments in the last couple of years is proof enough that visitors don’t just want to stop over — they want to stay in style.

Here’s a recap of all the new boutique hotels that are open or coming soon to Derby City:

Dream Louisville Hotel, Museum Row

We’ve been following this massive seven-building development since its announcement in 2021. According to the Louisville Downtown Partnership, it’s still on track for completion in 2025.

For the locals: The 168-room will include six restaurant spaces.

The Myriad Hotel, Highlands

Once a factory producing 90% of disco balls in the 1970s, the recently opened hotel hosts 65 rooms in 16 different styles.

For the locals: The Myriad’s outdoor lounge pool offers day passes for non-hotel guests, and the Switchboard coffee shop and Paseo restaurant are open to all.

Hotel Genevieve, NuLu

This hotel oozes with style, from its Parisian sensibilities to its colorful interior. Opened in May, we bet you’ve seen it on your Instagram feed.

For the locals: Four original food and bev concepts, plus a program highlighting local artists.

The Wondrous World of the Duke, NuLu

For a “hidden in plain sight” feel, this 17-room hotel will have speakeasy-style lounge, contactless check-in, and full-service kitchens in each room when it opens this fall.

For the locals: The hotel is moving in above Please & Thank You coffee shop — so no heavy construction.

Bakery Square Hotel, Butchertown

The historic Butchertown office building, purchased for $2.75 million back in March, will see new life as an 11-suite hotel next spring.

For the locals: Most of the Bakery Square building will remain operational as offices, though developer Todd Troy imagines a bakery or coffee shop moving in.
