“Fine hotel but no free WiFi - seriously??”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

The hotel was fine, loved the sleep number bed, but really hated that there was no free WiFi. I can't remember the last time I stayed in a hotel without free WiFi. Excellent service at the restaurant, The Bigg Blue Martini Bar and the valet service was great. However, next time we go to Lexington, we will find a hotel with free WiFi. Would have been nice to have a little refrigerator in the room too.

I go to Lexington almost every April, and I always stay at the Hilton downtown. The central location is great, since the downtown area is in easy walking distance, and the University is not too far away. The rooms are well appointed, clean, and quiet. I have always had a wonderful experience and recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the city.

Room Tip: Higher up, there is less noise from the very busy streets around the hotel.

Green Features: The Hilton does try to consider environmental issues, such as not laundering towels or changing sheets everyday.

Had a really good stay while in town for a fund raising event. Room was nice size and the sleep number bed as a new experience. The only down side was the maid was so late trying to clean the room on Sunday that we had to pass the clean up for that day due to needing to get ready for the event.

The hotel itself was an average experience. The staff are extremely helpful and courteous. The conference rooms are a bit small for the most part, and the in-room furnishings/decor are a bit date. Additionally, the pool is very small for a hotel this size. I would stay here again if needed, but wouldn't go out of my way to do so.

The hotel rooms were great and location was awesome. Other than that, I didn't like being forced to valet park and forced to use a bellman for my belongings. I also did not realize (Im sure it was listed in the long agreement online) that they charged per day and per device for internet. In today's world, most hotels do not charge for internet and I was told they are hopefully trying to make it complimentary. Staying at a Hilton is expected to be a "best of breed" stay but instead you get the frustrations and aggravations along with added costs to lessen the enjoyable stay.

Stayed here for an event at the conference center. Have to say the location was great and very easy to walk to anything in the city. Skip the connection tubes and use the streets as the tubes did not connect straight across all the buildings and you had to do a mystery hunt to find the floor and door that had the tube at each corner.

Room was very nice but executive lounge was only in use for the week and not on the weekends.
Rooms were nice and the views of the city were very good.

Service was very good and valet parking was always very easy in and out. Only down side was the pool was small and having the hot tub closed due to a legal challange to a ruling an pool access was very sad.

would stay again.

The Hilton Lexington is located in a very convenient area of downtown-- within walking distance of many restaurants and local attractions. The staff was very friendly and helpful in addition to being quick in taking care of my requests. I definitely plan to stay again!
