The Griffin Gate was able to accommodate a large family group, and put us in rooms that were conveniently close but not right next-door to allow some privacy. The rooms themselves were pretty spacious and comfortable, and overall we had a great stay. We didn't spend too much time at the hotel, which is because of its convenient location. It's... More

While staying my husband had gotten sick and I was in the elevator and ran into one of the employees named Amanda. I had mentioned that he was sick...she asked what room I was in and about 15...

At first I wasn't that excited about a wedding at a hotel. It wasn't my first choice and or what I had envisioned for our wedding. But my now wife took me to see the venue anyway and after meeting with hospitality staff and canvasing the venue I realized this wasn't at all a typical hotel wedding venue During the... More

I have always found Marriott's great places to stay, but Griffin Gate is showing some signs of age. They have thought of many things, like the talking elevators. However, my room's bed lamp was erratic. I finally discovered that the electric cord had to be jiggled some, and then the reading light would come on. Also, the cabinetry below the... More

Our room was comfortable. The tub was very slick and we had to order a rubber mat. I think it should have been in the bathroom already. The stairway exits to the outside nowhere near the front door so that was a surprise...otherwise it was a great stay.

We frequent this resort often when in Lexington. The staff is always attentive and the remodel is tasteful. Our room was in the concierge wing which is perfect. And be certain to have the weekend brunch which is one of our favorites.

This hotel was wonderful. I will definitely stay again. My only complaint is that owners of dogs should not be leaving there pets in the room by themselves. Very inconsiderate of those who may not enjoy the barking. I didn't really use the amenities like the pool and spa but would love to come back and just relax.

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!
