I have promised my son an indoor waterpark and we'll stay at a Holiday Inn in Indy to get his fix earlier in the week.
Since you live in Louisville, perhaps you can recommend a HHonors property on the way betw Mammoth Cave and French Lick. Mapquest suggests driving up to Louisville, so I'm hoping we can stay at one after our cave tours and then have a shorter drive to French Lick the next morning. I prefer properties with queen beds or ones that have the King/sofa bed option, if you happen to know this. Thanks!
Ahhh, the old weather question. We have had a very cold and snowy winter here so far, but are promised a warm up (near 60) this weekend. Normal temps are usually fairly nice (mid 50's-60's) by the end of March, but can vary widely.
Hilton properties in Louisville are numerous. There is a lovely historic hotel right in downtown. I'm not sure about the configuration of the bedding.
The Seelbach Hilton Louisville, KY Hotel 500 Fourth Street
Louisville, Kentucky, 40202-2518 1-502-585-3200
Hilton Garden Inn near the airport is another nice option, especially with kids, and is right off I65.
2735 Crittenden Drive Louisville, Kentucky, 40209 1-502-637-2424
I am especially fond of the Embassy Suites, which we used as a base before moving here. It has been 5 years since we stayed there, but at that time it was very nice. It is a little out of the way, since it is on the NE side of town and not near I65.
9940 Corporate Campus Drive Louisville, Kentucky, 40223 1-502-426-9191
One more option could be the Hampton Inn & Suites Louisville East
KY1451 Alliant Ave Louisville, Kentucky, 40299 1-502-809-9901
This hotel is only a couple of years old and does have suites available. It too, is a little out of the way, being in the eastern end of town, but is right on I64, so not difficult to get too.
I'm not sure if you are just going to use the room for a quick overnight, or will be checking out the area. If only a quick overnight, I would opt for the HGI Airport. It fills the bill with the kids, and is easy off and on the interstate.
If you want to get even closer to French Lick, there is a Hampton at Corydon, Indiana, right on I64, which is on your route.
