Recent stay was very average. However, this may be due to the renovations going on at the time. Room was nice. Interesting bed. Upon laying on it, felt like a rock. However, in a few minutes it conformed to your body. I found it somewhat comfortable, my wife did not. We had requested foam pillows and they were on the... More

My wife and I spent a few hours at the spa just to get away for the afternoon. We arrived to the spa and were met (or not met, actually) by a couple of staff standing around talking behind the small counter. We weren't acknowledged until they completed their conversation. I received an excellent "true grit" body treatment that included... More

Enjoyed my weekend get away with friends. Hotel room had a great view, in general was a neat and clean property. Bedding and room layout is fabulous- very comfortable. I was not particularly thrilled with the In house restaurants (menu choice was not great esp if you are a vegetarian).

The hotel was clean attractive and up to date. Entire staff was cheerful and accommodating. After our 3 day stay ( we went to keeneland for horse racing) we realized we had left a couple of sweaters in a drawer. The front desk researched, called us back and said they had the sweaters. When we offered to pay to ship... More

I recently stayed at the Griffin Gate Marriott for a meeting. In a hurry to get out of my room, I inadvertently left my coat in the closet. It took me over a week to realize just where I had left it. On calling the hotel, the front desk agent took my name, number and promised to investigate and call... More

I stay at this particular location several times a year. This is one of the largest hotels in the Lexington area and is one of the best conference locations in the city. The rooms have been recently renovated and the lobby should be updated by summer 2014. It is an attractive lodging and one of the best Marriott hotels I've... More

I stay here often for work. The past two times that I have stayed here were OK; the majority of the lobby was still under construction during my last visit in March. The sound proofing in the rooms is extremely poor; you can hear people talking in adjacent rooms and also traffic outside. My room in the concierge wing was... More

We recently stayed at the Griffin Gate while in town to "Run the Bluegrass". The race was amazing, even though the weather did not corporate. The hotel was very nice but better yet was the employees. They were both friendly and very helpful. Everyone from the person who greeted us every morning to the folks passing us in the hall... More

The hotel and its amenities are definitely nice, but the employees are what made the stay memorable. We left an article of clothing behind, and the staff went out of their way to locate the item and return it to us. It arrived Fed Ex within days of my call. The employees are genuinely friendly and provide excellent customer service.
