This hotel is an older Marriott property. We stayed for one night on the way through, and we picked it because of the indoor pool area which our kids loved. I enjoyed the large hot tub, but the pool was very cold. Because of the property's age, the rooms are small and the bathroom is one of the tiniest I...

The staff was FANTASTIC helping create a special atmosphere in the circa 1860's antebellum mansion. We used the entire main level of the mansion. We had a professional photography team taking photos and videos in the Dogwood room, we had drinks and hor d'oeuvres in another and dinner served in the larger. All three fireplaces were activated for the evening....

Very nice hotel. The lobby is a great first impression. We were upgraded to the hospitality suite which provided us more than enough room, and was awesome to have two bathrooms. Would definitely stay again!

Definitely not a 5 star - restrooms older fixtures but property was nice. I felt like my bed leaned and so did another colleague but probably due to memory foam needed to be more centered. Gym got really warm. Service was good, I had a broken tub spout and a colleague had a broken electrical outlet. They made it right...

Stayed on points. Asked for a room with a large balcony. Told at check-in that we had one. Entered a 4th floor room and it did not have a balcony.

I often stay here when visiting Lexington. The resort is not downtown but in a picturesque area off of the interstate. It has recently been remodeled and I enjoy their breakfast buffet. The staff is very friendly and attentive.

Stayed here twice in last two months, and while the hotel was very busy both times with various local conventions, staff seemed to handle the activity well and the hotel never seemed over-crowded. Lobby has several adjacent areas where people can hang out and work, drink, talk, whatever, but not in a traditional "lobby" environment. Received nice Platinum room upgrades...
