Churchill Downs Hotel & Travel Guide

There's got to be a reason that vacationers gather from near and far to see Churchill Downs.

Louisville, an estimated 50 miles (80 kilometers) outside of Frankfort, the state capital, is where you'll find it.

There's a good selection of 8 hotels within 2 miles (3 kilometers) of Churchill Downs, but it's still a smart idea to book in advance. Just 1 mile (2 kilometers) away, you will be able to spend your nights at the Hilton Garden Inn Louisville Airport. Two other places are the Holiday Inn Louisville Airport - Fair/Expo, 1 mile (2 kilometers) away, and the Four Points by Sheraton Louisville Airport, 1 mile (2 kilometers) away.

If you are simply looking for a nice bed to lay your head on, have a look at the handful of reasonably priced hotels that are a few minutes drive away. The Econo Lodge Airport and the Sleep Inn Louisville Airport & Expo are among the known places.

You deserve a night or two at one of the first-rate hotels in the area. Look into the 21c Museum Hotel Louisville and The Brown Hotel.

Hang out, take a breather and mingle with the locals at Bela's Café, which is just around the corner. If you have a couple of extra hours and a big appetite, you can also indulge in the delicious food at Derby Cafe. Finish up a great day with some refreshing drinks at Church Hill Downs, another short walk away, and raise a glass to your poor colleagues back home.
