Hotel Distil raises a glass to Louisville’s bourbon past by bringing refinement and luxury to the famed Whiskey Row. At Hotel Distil, you will step into a modern space through a historic façade, where gracious service and modern amenities flow like the bourbon once barreled on the historic site.

Boutique guestrooms offer fine luxuries with refined service that raise the bar for your stay in downtown Louisville. As the only oak-fired steakhouse on Whiskey Row, the on-site Repeal Oak Fired Steakhouse offers an award-winning menu, perfect to pair with an internationally acclaimed wine list and exclusive rare & rotating spirits collection of Bourbon Country’s most elusive bottles. Hotel Distil is setting the standard for luxury in Louisville hospitality and is a destination for connoisseurs.
