Weddings & Private Events

Few venues in the world can say they have been immortalized in classic literature, let alone venues in the Louisville area. Thanks to F. Scott Fitzgerald who set a scene in The Great Gatsby in our Grand Ballroom, The Seelbach Hilton can. That's why we attract events ranging from weddings to family reunions from people seeking a fairytale setting sure to capture imaginations and memories that will last a lifetime.
