Breeders' Cup Travel and Hotels


Updated: 09/05/2006

Below is a list of the hotels closest to Churchill Downs that still have vacancies for Breeders' Cup weekend as of the date above. They are listed in order of Distance from Churchill Downs. There are plenty of hotels in Louisville, so you shouldn't have a problem getting a room since there won't be as many people as during the Kentucky Derby. However, there is a grand tradition of raising rates and setting minimum stays for the Derby, so expect to see this happen for the Breeders' Cup too. The rates below are based on checking in Friday and out Sunday, but some hotels require Thursday check in so don't appear here. I also left out some that had raised their rates higher than reasonable, so you may want to use the search if you are willing to stay Thursday-Sunday or pay a lot more, as much as $300 per night for rooms that are normally closer to $50 per night. If you plan to go, you should reserve as soon as possible as many are already sold out.

If you need air fare or car rental, just click the Expedia or Travelocity buttons below to find the cheapest rate. The Churchill Downs is quite close to the Louisville airport, so you won't have to deal with long travel once you get there. Car rentals are quite resonable if you want to do that or you can get around by taxi, but that could get expensive. Don't bank on easy public transportation either, this is a driving city. There is a page with maps and directions here.

This is where I usually stay for the Derby and it is really quite nice and an easy drive to the track or parking at the Expo. This is way lower than their Derby rate.
