LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Serendipity encapsulates Amar Lalvani’s first encounter with the site of the future Hotel Genevieve, a $31 million, six-hotel hotel slated to open in spring 2023 at 730 E. Market St. in Louisville’s NuLu neighborhood.

The first stop on this long road trip was Louisville, a city where he had never previously stayed. And as Austin saw a spike in COVID-19 cases, he and his family decided to scrap plans to go there and stay at an Airbnb in Louisville’s NuLu neighborhood for 10 days.
