Griffin Gate is a seasoned hotel on the outskirts of Lexington. We have stayed here many times and are always treated well by the staff, In fact this time, they upgraded us to a suite which was a treat! I enjoy the Sunday brunch there too.

Both the hotel bar and JW restaurant had a nice atmosphere and quick service. The breakfast bar had an omelet station, hot breakfast food station, as well as pastries, fruit, cereals, and dairy products. It was always delicious and well stocked. Our party of ~30 guests were always able to be find what we needed. A negative...I had two different... More

Passing through Lexington on my way back to Ohio from Berea, I wanted to spend one night in the area in order to visit the Woodford Reserve Distillery, the Mary Todd Lincoln House and Ashland, Henry Clay's estate. Through Priceline, I ended up at Griffin Gate Marriott (at a rate far, far below the rate listed on the hotel's website).... More

Beds were awesome, service level was out standing. It right on the motor way which is great for getting places of interest quickly so thats a big plus, the breakfast buffet offer a nice selection of meats and pastries, all of the staff from every department was very helpful in every way they were called on

We have gone to this hotel more than once when in Kentucky and it has yet to fail us. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We try to go the package that includes breakfast.

We came to the Marriott Griffin Gate for a memorial weekend with family and friends honoring a friend who had died. The grounds and the interior of the hotel were lovely, with nice attention to detail, and we had a very good memorial lunch in one of the hotel's private party rooms. Breakfast at the hotel was also quite good.... More

This resort offers excellent customer service! I've stayed here on multiple occasions and have never been disappointed. I always have a pleasant stay that meets or exceeds my expectations. My most recent trip to the Griffin Gate was cancelled due to a winter storm. I had a shipment waiting for me at the hotel & now was no longer travelling... More

I inadvertently left some things in my room and the staff located and mailed the items to me. Most appreciated. Kudos to David Johnson in particular went out of his way to get my things to me in a timely manner.

My wife and I like to get out of the house at least once a month. We usually would reserve our room at Marriott Griffin Gate since it's suppose to be one of the nicer hotels in our area. I have recently become a Marriott member since I've started traveling for work and have a chance to compare hotel to... More

We stayed at the Griffin Gate Marriott Resort & Spa on 2-8-15. We had appointments to get a massage before we were suppose to be able to check in. However, when we arrived, they found out that we had those appointments and were able to get us in our room a little earlier. Thank you so much, that made it... More
