With its location on the Ohio River and the presence of both iconic Churchill Downs and the Slugger Factory, one would be hard-pressed to find a city teeming with more Americana than Louisville. Marriott hotel guests can immerse themselves in the distinct blend of small town charm and cosmopolitan sophistication that Louisville offers, whether they’re looking for an authentic taste of Derby pie, or craving unique adventures like a Mint Julip tour or a workshop session with the city’s famed glass artists.
