First Floor Rooms
Staying at the Gaffney means a stay with Louisville’s history; enjoy the full experience of the Gaffney House by renting out the entire house or solely the first-floor rooms, which include two of Louisville’s best: The Gaffney Room and The Derby Room. Paying homage to the original architect of the house – James Gaffney – as well as the biggest event in one of the nation’s oldest sports – the Kentucky Derby – these two rooms each feature a private sitting room with views of the river and a bedroom crafted for comfort with history on the side.
The Gaffney Room
Showered with history, this authentically-restored room, with all of its magnificent views, intricately displays Gaffney’s attention to creative and elaborate details. Stained glass guards the entrance to your private sitting room, and a private entrance awaits you to open onto the chromatic balcony. Inside, the bedroom boasts a majestic king-sized bed and unparalleled views of the river, the bridges, and the patios while original tiles adorn the fireplace, floors, and window sills that lead you to a full, modern bathroom.
The Bourbon Room
Greeted by cathedral ceilings, elaborate trim, and antique marble columns, the KY Bourbon Room instantly transports you into the mind of Gaffney as he introduces comforting elements from his famous Louisville masterpieces to create this unique, exciting, and glamorous suite. Complete with a luxurious king-sized bed, a peaceful and relaxing sitting room enriched with original tiles, spectacular views of downtown Louisville and the river, and a full-sized, private bathroom flaunting further exquisite views of Louisville, the KY Bourbon room is everything you need and more.
