LOUISVILLE, KY (FOX19) - For the first time ever, the Galt House Hotel is giving a Black Friday discount for rooms during Kentucky Derby weekend. The one-day special comes with 700 bucks in savings on rooms at the Official Derby Host Hotel.
Two packages are available if you are willing to pay in full Friday for your stay on the first Saturday in May. The cost is $1,500 for the Exacta package and $2,000 for the Trifecta deal. Both options include a three night stay from April 29 to May 2, onsite self parking, complimentary health club and Wi-Fi access, a commemorative gift from the Galt House, welcome reception with complimentary food, beverages and entertainment, Churchill Downs on-site concierge services and one dozen roses as well. The difference in price accounts for the size of the room you want.
Full payment is required on November 27th. Tickets to the races are not included, and like placing a bet at Churchill Downs, you can't get your money back if you change your mind.
The sale starts Black Friday, November 26 at 1:36 a.m., in honor of the 136th Run for the Roses. The sale ends at 11:59 p.m. the same night. For more information you can visit the Galt House Hotel web site or call 502-588-4043 if you'd like to schedule a tour of the available room types.
