(PR NewsChannel) / March 25, 2014 / LOUISVILLE, Ky. 

Exterior NightWith Kentucky Derby 140 just around the corner, it’s time to start planning your once-in-a-lifetime experience. It’s more than just the “Greatest Two Minutes in Sports;” getting the full Kentucky Derby experience includes balls, parties, red carpets, black ties, and incredible food. What you’re wearing is just as important as which horse you’ve picked to win the Run for the Roses, and where you’re staying could make a huge impact on your weekend. You’ll want to be right in the middle of the action—close to the parties, concerts, and Kentucky Derby Festival events.

Booking at the Galt House Hotel—the Official Hotel of the Kentucky Derby and Kentucky Oaks—puts you right where you want to be for this bucket-list event. The hotel, located in the Heart of Louisville, hosts many of the top parties of the week, offers a Bourbon Bar with one of the country’s largest Kentucky Bourbon collections (more than 150 Kentucky Bourbons), and a fine dining restaurant with unparalleled circular views of the city from 25 stories up. Select your Oaks or Derby hat from a top Louisville hat designer at his boutique in the Galt House Hotel, or ship your hat to the on-site UPS Store so you don’t have to worry about carrying it on the plane.
