GEMomsperience Part 3--21C Museum Hotel

I'm finally getting around to writing my third and final post about my trip to Louisville, Kentucky for the GEMomsperience.  Thank you to my loyal photography readers who put up with these three off-topic posts!  If you're lost, my first post was about the GEMomsperience itself, my second post was about the great women and fabulous hats at Churchill Downs, and this is my third post--all about the fabulous 21C Museum Hotel!
21CHotel-6

Yes, this hotel was so awesome it deserves a post of it's own!  If you are anyone who's anyone (such as Lady Gaga or Justin Bieber) staying in Louisville, KY, you stay at the 21C Museum Hotel.
21CHotel-4

21C Museum Hotel, as it's name says, it a combo of a hotel and art museum in one.  It's got great, modern, eclectic artwork everywhere you look!
21CHotel-5

It also has the most comfortable hotel beds I've ever slept in!
21CHotel-7

21CHotel-1

Since 21C is a famous, upscale hotel, I thought it was going to be a bit snooty. I was WAY wrong in my assumption!  The staff was super friendly and super fun!  You've got to read Love Feast Table's post about me and Creative Kristi's red penguin prank gone WAY overboard!!  No, seriously--STOP--read the post!  I guarantee you'll laugh your butt off!
21CHotel-10

Yes, these 21C mascots create a lot of fun for the hotel...
21CHotel-3

...as does this interactive artwork that you just can't help but play with while you wait for the elevator. It's a poem that rains down on you! You can "catch" words on your limbs and can even make letters bounce up and down. Too much fun not to play with!
21CHotel-2

Even the public bathrooms have some interesting "art work".  The above left is the men's urinal.  It's a waterfall that you pee into.  While you pee into the waterfall though, you look into the hallway!  Don't worry, it's a one-way mirror so the people in the hall can't watch you pee, but still...kinda weird!  On the right are little screens in the mirrors (of both sex bathrooms).  Those screens have eyeballs that look at you--really creepy!

There you have it, one of the best, most comfortable, most fun hotels I've ever stayed at!  If you are ever in Louisville, KY, you have to check it out!

*Disclaimer* GE Appliances paid for my hotel stay as part of the GEMomsperience.  I was NOT asked to blog about 21C Museum Hotel by GE or by the hotel itself (in fact, 21C doesn't even have a clue I'm writing this post!).  All opinions are my own and are of my own will because I thought the hotel was so cool!
