Recently my family and I took a quick overnight trip to one of our favorite Kentucky cities – Louisville! There’s so many things to do in the largest city in Kentucky! Whether you are looking for a trip to the Zoo, a day of discovery at the Science Center, or want to learn something at the Frazier History Museum, there’s something for all of us in the city of Louisville. But when you finish your day of exploring, you are going to want to stick around over night so you can have more adventures in the morning. Crowne Plaza Louisville is a great choice for me and my family on our family weekend getaway.
Why the Crowne Plaza is a Great Choice!
Crowne Plaza Louisville is a popular hotel – and for good reason! Whether you are flying into town for business, driving over for a family weekend trip or just spending some time in the city, Crowne Plaza Louisville has you covered.
Have you ever noticed that getting away and spending the night in a hotel with family is the perfect opportunity to get in some family bonding time? There’s no distraction of everyday laundry, work responsibilities, or household chores. Staying in a hotel is sometimes the best opportunity to get some silly laughs, a great game of chess or an elevator selfie with the kids!
Tip: When we travel, we like to pack a few card games or the latest favorite. Since my oldest son got this Star Wars Chess Game set for a Christmas present, this was the perfect game to enjoy in our family friendly suite!
Large Family Tip: Sometimes the best option when staying overnight at a hotel is to choose a suite! Our kids are big enough that we need a little more space to stretch out. The suite offered us the opportunity to have a living room area to relax, eat and watch a little television.
Swimming Pool & Fitness Center
The heated indoor pool is a great place to wrap up your day or the best way to start your morning and is large enough to have great fun with the family!
Don’t worry about towels when you head to the pool. You’ve got a full service stand with pool towels ready for you!
I loved the fact that there is a lifeguard on duty ready to keep an eye over the fun!
If fitness is on your list, then you will find a full service fitness center ready for your use. My son and I hit the treadmill and rowing machine for a quick workout before enjoying the pool.
When we travel, we often end up just randomly picking a hotel based on where we happen to be at any given night. We’ve been known to hop on the road and just drive until we are ready to go. Remember hearing about our 40 hour – 1000 mile – 3 state vacation? The problem is that we often end up grabbing a random motel and miss out on any rewards or savings. With the IHG rewards program, we can stay at any of the participating hotels and earn points toward free stays and other perks.

We are already planning our next road trip for this summer. We can’t decide for sure where we want to travel next. In our quest to hit all 50 states before the kids graduate from high school, we’ve got big plans for the summer. Should it be Boston? New York? Santa Fe? California? Where do you suggest we go next> I can guarantee you we will be checking the participating hotels on the IHG Rewards program when we are ready to book our stay!
