Bourbon lovers: If you've never been to Louisville's iconic Whiskey Row, you're truly missing out on the experience of a lifetime. Once the center of the bourbon industry, this block-long stretch of the city's historic Main Street is now home to yet another brand new hotel, Hotel Distil.
This 205-room hotel is all about bourbon. Seriously. Housed in the former barrel house of the old J.T.S. Brown and Sons distillery, Hotel Distil pays homage to the longstanding bourbon culture in Louisville, then and now.

Upon checking in, guests will receive a “prescription card” that invites them to join a nightly tribute (and whiskey cocktail!) at 7:33 p.m. in celebration of the repeal of Prohibition. The time translates to 19:33 using 24-hour clock notation. As in, the year that Prohibition ended. Back then, Kentuckians could receive a “prescription” that granted the use of bourbon for a myriad of medical needs. All very serious matters, of course. (Sarcasm noted?)
If you’re lucky enough to stay in one of the 11 Connoisseur Suites, enjoy an in-room bourbon cart and visit from a bourbon expert who brings along a selection of bourbon or specialty Old-Fashioned cocktails along for tasting.
