Enjoyed our stay at Griffin Gate while attending Breyerfest 2016. The pool areas and lobby was very clean and a lot of fun for my family. We especially loved ordering room service as my daughter has never experienced that. Checked out the spa and it was expensive and didn't fit in my budget: big bummer! I wanted a pedicure for...

We had a family reunion with approximately 24 people, most of whom were there two nights and five of us for three nights. The adults and children loved the outdoor pool and relaxed atmosphere. Seven of us played golf on Saturday which we thoroughly enjoyed due to the excellent condition of the course and it was a quick round due... More

I have stayed here several times and I have never been let down. Beautiful clean facility. Staff is always friendly and helpful. It has both a beautiful outdoor swimming pool area as well as an indoor pool. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Lexington, Kentucky.

We are Marriott "groupies". We stay at Marriott hotels a lot and found this location to be a nice place for a two night visit. The staff is incredibly friendly!

My company always has their annual meeting at this hotel. They are always accommodating and have a smile on their face. This year, I left my Kindle in my room. I called a few days after I checked out and they shipped it to me free of charge. Thanks Griffin Gate!

The Griffin Gate Marriott in Lexington is a good place to stay. I flew into Lexington and rented a car, the hotel is about a 15 minute drive from the airport. Easy access, free parking is available at the hotel. I checked in remotely using the Marriott App, my check in time at the hotel was very efficient. The check... More

We checked into the Marriott Griffin Gate with a Tauck Group. The location was excellent for the things we were going to see. The room was okay, but when we opened the bed the sheets, they were stained. We called housekeeping and they came right away and changed them. They gave us a drink/movie/coffee voucher. The next day I asked... More

Griffin Gate Marriott is a nice hotel outside of Lexington complete with a nice pool, golf course and Starbucks. Unfortunately the golf course does not have a driving range but the course is very nice. Staff was friendly, comfy beds and free parking. Great jumping off point for the Bourbon Trail (which is what brought us down there from Cincinnati).... More

I travel a lot for work. (Couple of nights a week.) The rooms are clean but a bit dated. Staff was very friendly and helpful. There is a spa on site which I did not use but other customers in the restaurant said they had and enjoyed the service. The resort/spa is located right off the interstate with easy access.... More

Another reviewer wrote that as a "resort" this property ranks about a 3.5, and as a "hotel" it is a 5. I would agree with this assessment. We stayed at the Griffin Gate for one night as a stopping point on our way home from South Carolina to Indiana in June of 2016. The hotel was at capacity that evening... More
