The hotel updates are very pleasing! The staff and premises are inviting and make you feel comfortable right away. I had my granddaughters with me and the staff took time to recognize them which I appreciated, made them feel "special". Great place to stay!

I've been going to the Kentucky Horse Park for decades as a competitor and spectator. Whenever I arrive it feels like I'm coming home. The staff are efficient, pleasant, and of the highest quality. Rooms are immaculate and the grounds are exquisite. Go. You'll love it, and so will your dog.

Stayed here since it was the HQ hotel of the Run The Bluegrass half marathon a few weeks ago. Parking is plentiful, but don't be surprised if you have to walk a good bit to get to your car. Check-in was fairly routine. Standard rooms are just that . . . very standard. A bit on the smaller sized, and... More

White fenced property with ample green grass and stately grounds sets the mood for comfortable stay. The reception was efficient. The Concierge lounge was as good or better than most with excellent service and food and sufficient drinks. (In response to critics, the lounge is not supposed to be a restaurant, but only provides snacks). The rooms were comfortable and... More

Hotel is not bad and fine for a family vacation but if you are staying here on business to take advantage of the Concierge lounge don't bother. I have stayed in many full service Marriott Hotels and the food in this one was AWFUL. In a nutshell the food is all frozen food or canned other than some fresh fruit... More

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
