Find Skyline Serenity in a Penthouse Retreat in Louisville

Nestled amidst the bustling cityscape of Louisville lies an oasis of luxury and tranquility—an opulent penthouse retreat awaiting your indulgence. With vibrant views and every amenity meticulously curated for your comfort, the Penthouse Grand Executive Suite promises an unparalleled staycation experience, where the ordinary fades into the extraordinary, and relaxation takes on new heights.

Our journey began with an online check-in process that was super friendly and seamless, with every detail being well communicated, setting the tone for the excitement that awaited us. Downtown parking in any city is always a concern but not during this visit. There were two reasonably priced parking lots within steps of our stay, making access to the penthouse simple and safe. The penthouse suite is located in a secured office structure which is currently under a little renovation. However, this was of no surprise to us; the friendly staff of Hollyhock Rentals informed of us everything we needed to know about our stay and what to expect. There was no construction noise and honestly speaking, the penthouse was so fabulous there was nothing that could detract from its splendor.

Stepping into the Penthouse Grand Executive Suite was akin to entering a realm of sophistication and grandeur. The spacious living area exuded an air of modern elegance, adorned with plush furnishings and rugged decor accents. It had, what I like to call, an urban bourbon flair. Floor-to-ceiling windows bathed the room in natural light, offering a fantastic view of Louisville's city life that mesmerized us from dawn to dusk.

The lavish suite boasts 6 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms, each presenting their own unique vibe and plenty of privacy. All spaces were cozy, contained plenty of storage, and were equipped with wall-mounted smart TV's, including an 85-inch screen TV in the main living area. There is every imaginable comfort: sensible seating arrangements, a fully equipped kitchen for cooking and entertaining, a washer/dryer, and extra linens, if needed. Hollyhock also supplies each guest with a coffee and tea bar, oatmeal and breakfast bars, as well as a few other light snacks; perfect for those moments when you need a treat.

Do you have children? No problem. High-speed internet, fun board games, and a charming bedroom containing built-in bunk beds can accommodate children of all ages. Check this out!

The beauty never ends. Much like the bedrooms, the three bathrooms all possessed their own individual style and were stocked with Hollyhock's line of signature toiletries, high-end fixtures and blow dryers. And what about this soaking tub? Such an elegant rarity.

One of our favorite parts of the penthouse was the private rooftop terrace. As we stepped into the space, we were greeted with fresh air and sunshine, carrying with it a sense of freedom and relaxation. It's the perfect place to recline, soaking up the warmth of the sun during the day or basking in the soft glow of the twinkling rooftop lights at night. And for those nights when the chill sets in? A fire pit is available to warm you and add to the glow of the atmosphere.

I will say, there's a certain tranquility in being above it all, away from the noise and distractions of the world. It's a place where you can escape, unwind, and reconnect with yourself or share special moments with friends and loved ones. Whether you're enjoying a peaceful solo moment or engaging in lively conversation, a rooftop terrace offers an unforgettable experience that combines the best of relaxation and exhilaration.

While the allure of the Penthouse Grand Executive Suite was undeniable, we couldn't resist venturing out to explore the vibrant city of Louisville. From its rich cultural heritage to its thriving culinary scene, there was no shortage of experiences to delight the senses.

One can immerse themselves in the city's bourbon culture with a visit to a renowned distillery where you can sample an exquisite selection of spirits steeped in tradition. Strolling along the historic streets of downtown Louisville, you can discover charming boutiques, art galleries, and picturesque parks that capture the essence of this dynamic metropolis.

On weekends, one can visit the Slugger Museum and Science Center just a few blocks away. Situated one block from Fourth Street Live, three blocks from the KY Center for the Arts, one block from the YUM Center, and directly across from the convention center, this location offers convenience and excitement.

You can also find a variety of restaurants and nightlife options within walking distance. Here are a few notable ones:



  • Howl at the Moon: A lively dueling piano bar with a fun atmosphere and a wide selection of drinks.

  • Sidebar at Whiskey Row: A stylish cocktail lounge offering craft cocktails and small bites in a historic building.

  • Fourth Street Live: A vibrant entertainment district offering a diverse array of restaurants, bars, shops, and live entertainment venues.

  • 8UP Elevated Drinkery & Kitchen: A rooftop bar offering panoramic views of the city skyline, along with craft cocktails and small plates.

We love Louisville because there is so much to do! During our stay we visited the Wild Lights Exhibit at the Louisville Zoo and had dinner at the amazing River House. We had one of the best staycations ever! The only downside to our experience is that it was not long enough. The Penthouse Grand Executive Suite can accommodate up to 18 guests and is perfect for bachelor/bachelorette parties, family gatherings, girls' getaways, romantic excursions or business trips.

Our stay at the Penthouse Grand Executive Suite in Louisville was a symphony of indulgence and sophistication, leaving an indelible impression on our hearts and minds. From the lavish accommodations to the impeccable service, every aspect of our experience surpassed expectations, elevating our retreat to unprecedented heights of luxury. As we bid farewell to this enchanting haven, we departed with cherished memories and a longing to return to its embrace someday soon.
