Everything is new and still has that "new hotel smell". Check-in took a while (there were six of us, however) but the bar offered a nice respite while waiting. Rooms were well appointed and extremely comfortable w/ big, fat, fluffy 100% cotton towels, extra pillows, comfy sheets and mattresses, and sink, fridge, microwave, &c. Everything was extremely clean and rooms were "refreshed" during the day. A small coffee maker that sufficed for one but barely (& I did not see complimentary coffee d/s). There was not an iron/ironing board but a steamer that takes a while to operate correctly (iron & board would be easier). Despite the hospitals nearby exterior noise was, for the most part, non-existent.
The folks were about as nice as could be and went out of their way to find things or assist when necessary.
Our group has bounced around Lexington trying to find an ideal location at a reasonable price and our search might just be over.

This was the first visit to Lexington for my sister and myself. I had no idea what area to stay in as I was unfamiliar with the city. I booked this hotel noting it was only about 20min drive from the KY Horse Park. To my surprise and delight, this hotel turned out to be incredibly good! The location is about a mile or so from the heart of downtown, yet the location of the hotel is along a main street with plenty of places to eat and with easy access to other main roads. It is very quiet as well, seeing it is across the street from a medical clinic, and down the street from a major hospital. It is also about a mile or so from the Alltech Lexington Brewery Company, which we had booked for a tour! Super convenient! The rooms are large, and very well appointed: each bedside table has a charging cube with multiple ports. Fantastic! There's a great large old-fashioned fridge and open shelves for your items. It's truly a wonderful place to stay! The restaurant, Fiddletree, servesdelicious food and we were also very impressed! This is a great little find of a hotel, and one that I will always stay at whenever I am in Lexington!

This hotel blew me away!! From the clean, refreshing smell when you first walk in to the gorgeous lobby bar and restaurant. The rooms felt more like you were staying in a chic loft rather than a hotel room. The place was spotlessly clean. Every member of the staff we encountered were delightful and helpful. Would have loved to have been able to stay longer. Will definitely be back!!

We travelled overnight with our 3 boys and arrived at the Elwood around 2:30am. The location is very safe and family friendly. The hotel had a good overnight security system in place where you can’t access the hotel without a key or an associate allowing you in. The Front Desk employee was so welcoming and greeted us by saying, “Oh! We have been waiting for your arrival!” Check-in was quick and easy. We stayed in room 417 which had 2 XL Twin beds, a large living area and a separate bedroom with a king size bed. After driving all night, the bed was perfect, so comfortable and the pillows were actually king size and fluffy yet firm! The hotel itself is truly stunning. Very eloquent, the fresh air with all of the plants was no pun intended but a true breath of fresh air (especially because I’m not feeling well), smells and IS clean, modern yet sophisticated. We didn’t get to eat at the restaurant however; we do plan to stop on our way home to try it as we have heard great reviews. You can surely tell this hotel is loved and I highly recommend!

My 8 year old referred to our room as an “apartment”. 😁

Thank you for a wonderful stay, I could not say enough good things about the hospitality!

Made an overnight stop at the Elwood in Lexington while driving through Kentucky. The layout is quite different than anything I've seen before in a high end hotel. However after seeing our chic corner suite I was reassured we had chosen wisely to stay in this fun, fresh boutique hotel vs the Marriott downtown.
The bedroom, sitting room and kitchenette all had a large smart TV. Lovely furnishings, great natural light and special touches make this hotel a place that is sure to please even the fussiest of guests.
Only suggestion I have is to be sure there's enough paper products for the average guest. The tissues were were in VERY short supply and we nearly ran out of toilet paper. Paper towels in the kitchenette would also be good.
The restaurant downstairs was closed as it was a Sunday night but The Rackroom Tavern next door at the Hilton Campbell House was a delicious option and just a short 4-5 minute walk.

Overall we would definitely stay here again! As a Californian I can't get over how affordable this lovely hotel is! I 100% recommend Elwood Hotel!

I spent four nights at the Elwood last week and had an excellent stay. The property is beautiful, the staff is attentive, the restaurant is fantastic, and I look forward to coming back soon!

A few items to note:
1. The hotel rooms have steamers instead of irons. I usually travel with a portable steamer and forgot it on this trip. I was thrilled to find a full size steamer in the room!
2. The showers have great water pressure and awesome shower heads.
3. I was happy to see full-size Malin & Goetz toiletries with the most heavenly scent!
4. The gym is beautiful and functional.
5. I got a chance to meet the artist who painted the murals outside and inside the hotel. She is as talented as she is kind.
6. They have one of the most comfortable mattresses I've ever slept on.

I highly recommend the Elwood and look forward to my next visit!

My family and I stayed at the Elwood Hotel & Suites while passing through Kentucky. When you enter the hotel you come through the restaurant where you can sit comfortably with furniture that you would have in your home. The bar was great and food was delicious! The outside of the hotel is so unique with the floral designs painted on the building. The plants in the hotel, outstanding feature that you don’t often see, it takes dedication to care for all of those plants, kudos to you and your team! The gym had high end equipment and we loved that you call your elevator a “lift”. The room was so spacious and truly felt like home. The rocking chair was very nice to have with a baby!

Thank you for a great night stay and if we ever return we will be back again!

I made reservation for one night since was having surgery and surgery was cancelled and I called the hotel to cancel room this was for end of November and then yesterday December 20 I got a charge of 83.50 on my card. I called and talked to one lady she said I would have to call back and talk to front desk instead of just transferring me over so I called back and was told by the man that yes I did cancel the reservation but that the charge was for a cancellation fee which seems like a lot. If I had not called and cancelled the room I could understand. So before you book at this hotel you might want to check things out and I had wished I had read some of the reviews for this hotel.

Your senses will be awakened from the moment you step out of the vehicle! Your eyes will take in the beautiful mural and outdoor seating area. As you walk in a delightful scent surrounds you. The beauty in the furniture, bar and decorations keep your eyes busy! The greeting of welcoming you to the property is sincere. The food and cocktails are superb!
Your room is comfortable, clean and a great vibe to it! The bed is comfortable and you sleep in bliss.

Elwood accommodated our special requests, and we were certainly appreciative. They managed to find us seating outside on the patio at the hotel restaurant and, humorously, provided stir sticks as a substitute for chips in our 31 card game.

The dinner entrees at the hotel restaurant were hit or miss. The tiny little portion of jerk chicken around tasteless rice and forlorn carrot slices wasn't ideal. Restaurant menus without pictures are a sort of “dinner roulette” where you take a chance based on a few words in a menu description -- and some got the bad roll. Others shot and scored, like one of our dinner mates with the salmon.
