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

We stayed at Griffin Gate for a 2 day getaway and really enjoyed our visit. The room was up to expectations. We went to get some breakfast and ended up getting the lunch buffet and for the price, it was excellent. The food was tasty and service was good. They call it a buffet but it was far better than...

We stayed at this hotel for the Run the Bluegrass half marathon. It was a cold and wet weekend but the property was still beautiful. I have read mixed reviews on the beds. Beware that these aren't the typical Marriott beds. I thought they were an upgrade, but not everyone will think so. For some reason my bedding type request... More

Everything was fine with the hotel but I wish it was located downtown so that you could walk to other places. The golf course is also pretty nice. The bar has a nice bourbon selection and the food is pretty good too. Really no complaints about anything, just wish you could walk to something besides Denny's.

This place was probably tops in the early 80's...age is showing. Rooms are ok but overall it has a worn out feel to the place, pool, bar and restaurant feel the same. Location is very good to get around Lexington and staff is friendly.

I have been staying in the Griffin Gate Hotel for 5 years now. I love the hotel. It is so beautiful and makes me feel at home. Until this year. This year is my first time staying without my family so I paid for the room myself. I was originally supposed to be charged $317 but when I looked at... More

Thank you for your review and I'm very sorry to hear about the trouble you experienced with your credit card. From your description, it sounds like you presented a Debit card to our desk staff. It is very customary at most hotels to automatically "authorize" enough funds from your card to cover room and tax for the length of your... More
