We stay in Lexington often and wanted to try this place especially since there was a spa. I emailed the spa and never got return, I don't have a lot of time for phone calls, thus I skipped the spa. The outside of the hotel is dated. The rooms are clean and nice. But the hotel comes off a bit... More

Nice Marriott and grounds; easy access. Good restaurant with great breakfast buffet. Noise rises from the bar area, so request rooms away from the elevators. Free parking. Good location near interstate and not too far from downtown.

The hotel and resort is nice. Spa, golf course, tennis courts, Pools. There's a Starbucks, too. We travel with a small dog and she seemed very welcome. Others were there with dogs, but not overwhelming. Tours pick up at the hotel. Would love to play the course,too as it was beautiful. The spa experience was just okay. Wouldn't rate it... More

Stayed here for one night during a business trip. Check in was quick and friendly. The mattress in my room was a Tempur-Pedic!! Is this standand??? It was wonderful!! The mattress made up for the fact that the bathrooms are tiny and there isn't a fridge in the room. For one night trips, I would normally choose a HGI or... More

Griffin Gate has become our traditional wedding anniversary getaway - the one (and usually only) night without the kids. We love Griffin Gate & it never disappoints... Beautifully landscaped property, very nice amenities + first class staff that always goes above & beyond. Latest example was last night - the front staff sent a bottle of wine with a handwritten...

Rooms are dark and outdated. Service is nothing special. In the bar area the granite counter was broken but no notes to prevent an accident. Food was so-so. At the pro shop the help was limited, the snack bar had little to offer & wasn't very good, the cart interior was dirty. No water or towels. Overall not a good... More

We have stayed here many times and sometimes it is great and others not so much. Tonight we checked in very late (11:40 pm) we were sent up to the 7th floor where all the suites were. I think they were trying to give us a nice room since we stay here so often but it felt like a run... More

Okay I hardly rate a hotel on food but this one is stupid over the top amazing. I was staying here based on a business meeting. I got there a day early and used the spa which really had some terrific features. Get a facial there if you have the time. My coworkers got there that evening and we ate... More

The Marriott Griffin Gate is great for a getaway from Cincinnati. The staff is helpful and friendly. The vibe is relaxed but classy. The bed was probably the most comfortable I've slept in. The room was quiet. Bathroom was small but shower was nice. The outside pool is very nice. Try the Kentucky Butter Cake!
