I have stayed here multiple times over the last few years. The staff are awesome. This time, the rooms are a little tired looking and the towels were like cardboard. It's probably just time for a facelift and maybe some new linens!

We had a wonderful day at the spa. My wife and I had the couples massage. Stephanie and Leslie were our masseuses, they did great job, very knowledgeable and personable. Probably best experiance we've had like this. Steam bath was awesome. Spa front desk was very helpful and friendly. We have already booked another visit.

Stayed two nights during a business trip. Room was adequate, but not what I would consider a 'resort' experience as their name implies. They do have a Starbucks in the lobby, so that is a nice touch for coffee lovers. Valet parking is available, but self-parking in their lot is really convenient. Other guests during my stay complained about a... More

We stay at a lot of Marriott hotels - they are our favorite chain. I found this one as a good place to stop on an interstate road trip and am glad I did. Lexington is a great KY city near bourbon distilleries, beer breweries, and horse stables. Griffin Gate is a real resort and a favorite of many horse... More

We stayed in a beautiful suite on the 7th floor with a balcony and gorgeous view of the golf course. We enjoyed a dip in the very nice pool and hot tub before dinner. Our room was spacious, comfortable and quiet. The bathroom was especially nice with a large soaking tub and a double vanity. There are plenty of well... More

What a great older property. Its close though to going down to a *** star. Way to many maintenance issues not taken care of and consistent lack of communication between management and staff. The biggest safety concerns were outdoor pool handrails completely detached and danger to children and elderly. Way too much mold and algae on pool edge and hot... More

We stayed for one night as we made our way south. The highlights were the two pools and the kind service we got from staff. Kaycee was especially helpful! The food at the breakfast buffet was ok. The fresh fruit was great, but the hot offerings were average.

We go every year for continuing education. My daughter loves the pools which are nice one indoor and one outdoor. The amenities are great but pricey for what you have to pay for (i.e. Room service, spa, ect.). My main complaint are the rooms which are very small and aging. The bathrooms are tiny but clean. The beds are not... More
