The BLLA Team sits down with The Grady Hotel, Winner of the Best Boutique Hotel of 2021 Under 100 Rooms Award & Winner of the Best Boutique Design Project of 2021 Award!

BLLA: What is your hotel’s mission statement?

TGH: “Hotels are for people passing through, The Grady lets the spirit of Louisville pass through you.”

BLLA: How do you stay authentic to the boutique essence? 

TGH: “The Grady is a sip of Bourbon City, part sinner, part saint. We honor history, but defy convention. Our service is cordial and heartfelt. Our style is upscale — but unforced. We are luxury, laid back.”

BLLA: How does your team operate as a family?

TGH: “We invite guests to see The Grady with the eyes of a child — a seek-and-find treasure trove — with delights to unlock. We are a restful retreat—with sweeping windows to the world outside. We invite you to rest your head and lift your spirits.”

BLLA: Why does your hotel and team believe in the boutique movement?

TGH: “We are all students of the city, guests and locals alike. We believe a stay at The Grady is to “Come as a Guest, Leave as a Local.”

BLLA: What was the inspiration behind the design? 

TGH: “Louisville is a city of contrasts and The Grady follows suit, mixing modern and vintage, iron and glass, patinated metals and herringbone floors.”
