  • Galt House® Hotel Trivia
    The Conservatory, which spans Fourth Street and links the hotel's SUITE Tower and RIVUE Tower, is an impressive glass-domed great room modeled after the Crystal Palace in London. Brimming with tropical plants and home to an aviary with exotic and colorful songbirds, the Conservatory is truly one of the most impressive settings in Louisville.
