Louisville welcomes you to visit the brand new Bellwether Hotel — a place where authenticity meets a modern appeal. Located in the iconic neighborhoods of The Highlands, Bardstown Road is designated as “Louisville’s Greatest Street.” In addition to being a dining mecca, it also offers a vast selection of cafes, bookstores, breweries and locally-owned treasures. Not to be missed, Kentucky’s bourbon country is often said to have more barrels than people. The state produces 95% of the country’s whiskey, and the locals are fiercely proud of this claim to fame. The area is equal parts eclectic and charming, lined with Victorian homes and turn-of-the-century architecture. Converted warehouses are used as shops for antiques, bourbon tasting rooms or home to some of the city’s coolest restaurants.
Situated just a few steps away is the newly opened Bellwether Hotel. Over 100 years old, this structure was once home to The Highlands Police Station and Louisville Ballet. From the façade to the decor, the Bellwether has been reimagined with a modern approach that pays homage to its extraordinary history. It provides its guests with an experience that's as unique as the building itself. During the 18-month renovation, the new owners paid special attention to the character and history of the Bardstown Road corridor — from the carpets to velvet touches, lighting, amenities and art deco finishing. They even kept a series of paintings that have been in the same exact spot for more than 76 years. Truly the first of its kind in Louisville, the Bellwether brings a quintessential blend of future and former times.
In the rooms of this brand new hotel, you'll find the LATHER Bamboo Lemongrass Collection. These moisturizing and invigorating products are made with natural and botanical ingredients that highlight the fresh perspective found at the Bellwether. Bamboo extracts rejuvenate, while lemongrass essential oil provides an invigorating aroma. Both the body wash and shampoo are sulfate-free, gently cleansing and refreshes without over drying. The crème rinse and moisturizer are deeply hydrating with a light, uplifting aroma. This collection brings guests a spa-worthy experience during their stay at the remarkable Bellwether Hotel.
